BNC Antenna Connection
: Re-engineered with a standardized BNC connection the FTA-720 will now allow a quick easy connection to an external antenna giving the user greater transmit and receive range and clarity.
Rugged Die-Cast Magnesium Construction: The unmatched ruggedness of the FTA-720 takes away the worry of accidentally dropping your radio, thanks to the light weight die-cast magnesium chassis and rubber armor on the bottom corners.
160 Programmable Memory Channels: 70 memory channels can be easily programmed into the FTA-720 allowing quick easy access to frequently used channels on the aviation band. Additionally, 90 "book memory" channels can be programmed into the unit using the optional PC programming software and cable. All memory channels can be labeled with either a channel number assignment, operating frequency display, or an alpha-numeric channel name display.
Multi-Band Reception: In addition to Aviation bands the FTA-720 will also receive music stations on the FM broadcast band, allowing the user to listen to their favorite FM music station during times when the aviation bands are not being used. Additionally the FTA-720 gives you access to reception coverage of the (BRS) Business Radio Service band.
Multi-Color LED Light: Among all the features of the FTA-720 the multi-color LED Strobe light is one of the most innovative. Different colored LED indicators can be programmed into the unit to designate RX, TX, Emergency mode, WX Alert, and the overheat warning.
Submersible Construction: The FTA-720 was engineered for safety and durability. The radio is built around a solid die cast magnesium chassis with heavy duty gaskets throughout, allowing the radio to be submerged up to 3' for 30 minutes (JIS7 waterproofing standard) making this the most durable aviation transceiver on the market today.
