FT-60E Dual Band Transceiver
Yaesu's 144/430 MHz 5-Watt FM Hand-held was introduced at Dayton 2004. The FT-60E includes wide receiver coverage, outstanding audio quality, the most CTCSS/DCS flexibility in the industry, and a new Emergency Automatic Identification (EAI) feature for search-and-rescue work.
Small Size
Allows you to take it anywhere, and its operating flexibility brings the user many avenues of operating enjoyment.

Plenty of Power
Its incredibly tiny FNB-83 rechargeable Ni-Mh battery pack provides up to 5 watts of transmit power on 144MHz and 430MHz Amateur Bands

Great Receiver Coverage

Besides the 2m and 70cm transceive operations, the FT-60E provides receive coverage of the VHF and UHF TV Bands, the VHF AM aircraft band, and a wide range of commercial and public safety frequencies.

***New Features***

Emergency Automatic ID (EAI)
Ideal for search-and-rescue work, the EAI feature can be commanded on so as to identify your FT-60E, and engage your PTT and microphone, remotely in an emergency situation. So if you don't check in during a search, help can be dispatched, with the automatic TX function allowing others to perform direction finding.

Enhanced Paging and Code Squelch (EPCS)
Allows you to page a particular station and only receive calls from that station if desired.

To prevent an unauthorized person from using your FT-60E, you may engage a security password that must be keyed in prior to operation, if you like.

ARTS (Auto-range Transponding System)
Yaesu's exclusive ARTS™ that "beeps" the user when you move out of communications range
with another ARTS™ equipped station, plus provision for reduction of the TX deviation in areas of high channel congestion.

WIRES™ (Wide-coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System)
The FT-60E includes provision for easy access to Yaesu’s WiRES™ Internet linking nodes, as well as other linking systems that require a DTMF string for access.
Note: Specifications are subject to change without notice, and are guaranteed within the 144 and 430MHz Amateur Bands only. Frequency ranges will vary according to transceiver version; check with your dealer.
