Its incredibly tiny FNB-83 Rechargeable Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery Pack provides up to 5 Watts of transmit power on the 144 MHz and 430 MHz Amateur Bands. Besides 144- and 430-MHz transceive operation, the FT-60R 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 ON THE FT-60E

New and exciting features of the Yaesu FT-60E are the Emergency Automatic ID (EAI) function, that will automatically cause your Yaesu FT-60E to transmit your callsign and engage your rigs microphone, even if you are disabled and unable to press the PTT switch; Enhanced Paging and Code Squelch (EPCS), that allows you to page a particular station and only receive calls from that station, if desired; and a security Password feature, to prevent unauthorized use of your transceiver.

NEW EMERGENCY AUTOMATIC ID SYSTEM

The Emergency Automatic ID (EAI) Feature can be used for searching for persons who are incapacitated in disasters like earthquakes, especially search-and-rescue personnel who may need assistance. An EAI-equipped searcher sends out a unique command (CTCSS tone pair), and the radio of the incapacitated party, who may not be able to speak or even press the PTT, will automatically be placed in the transmit mode, so others may perform direction finding and effect a rescue. The callsign of the incapacitated person will also be transmitted, to assist the rescue team..

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): OVER 1000 MEMORY CHANNELS w/ALPHA-NUMERIC LABELS
The Yaesu FT-60E’s unmatched memory capabilities include 1000 Standard memory channels, five Home channels, 50 sets of band-edge memories, and ten "Weather Broadcast" channels. Each memory channel may have an alpha-numeric label appended, for quick channel recognition.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): TEN MEMORY BANKS FOR CHANNEL ALLOCATION
Any of the "standard" or "band edge" memories may be allocated into the ten memory banks, allowing easy recall of memories according to geographical, frequency, or other ways you want to organize them.

FT-60R (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): HIGH POWER OUTPUT: 5 W
The Yaesu FT-60E’s powerful transmitter puts out a full five Watts of power on both the 144 and 430 MHz bands. For longer battery life, reduced power settings of 2 Watts and 0.5 Watt are provided, along with a Transmit Battery Saver (TBS), that automatically lowers power when you utilize a strong local repeater.

Ni-MH LONG LIFE BATTERY FNB-83 (7.2 V, 1400 mAh)
with Overnight Charger

Long hours of outdoor operation demand the ultimate in battery capacity, and the Yaesu FT-60E is supplied with a long-life 1400 mAh Nickel-Metal Hydride battery pack and overnight charger, to keep you operating when others’ batteries have died.
Available as an option for the Yaesu FT-60E is the FBA-25A Alkaline Battery Tray, which allows you to use "AA" Alkaline cells to power your Yaesu FT-60E to a full 5 Watts of TX power.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): CONVENIENT ACCESS KEY FOR VERTEX STANDARD’s WIRES™ (Wide-coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System)
The Yaesu FT-60E can be used to access a node (repeater or base station) which is tied into the Vertex Standard WIRES™. (Wide-Coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) network, operating in the SRG (Sister Radio Group) mode. Operating details may be found at the WIRES-II Web eb site:h ttp://www.vxstd.com/en/wiresinfo- en/

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): CTCSS AND DCS ENCODE/ DECODE, WITH SPLIT TONE AND DCS ENCODE-ONLY CAPABILITY
The outstanding tone signaling capability of the Yaesu FT-60E includes full Encode/Decode capability for CTCSS and DCS, along with Split CTCSS/DCS and DCS Encode-only operation, to meet your changing requirements.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): ONE-TOUCH NOAA WX BAND ACCESS
The Yaesu FT-60E provides a dedicated memory bank for reception of NOAA Weather broadcasts. Pressing the PTT switch activates scanning of the Weather memories, and another press of PTT will halt the scan.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): NOAA SEVERE WEATHER ALERT WITH ALERT SCAN
You can also command the Yaesu FT-60E to scan for an incoming "Severe Weather" alert tone from NOAA, to advise you of an impending severe storm.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): TWO PROGRAMMABLE KEYS
Two of the keys on the front panel’s keyboard may be assigned with userdefined functions from the configuration Menu, so as to provide quick access to special setup options you use frequently. Menu access was never easier!

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): NINE DTMF AUTO-DIALER MEMORIES
Nine DTMF Autodial memories are provided in the Yaesu FT-60E, allowing you to store telephone numbers for autopatch use. You can also store short autopatch or Internet-link access code streams so as to avoid having to send them manually.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): HUGE LCD
The large Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) contains a host of valuable operating status information, and Yaesu’s exclusive Omni-Glow display/keypad illumination system ensures easy reading of the information you need during nighttime operation, without compromising your night vision.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): RF SQUELCH SYSTEM
For operation in crowded RF environments where you don’t want to use tone decoding, the Yaesu FT-60E includes an innovative RF Squelch system, that only passes signals exceeding a user-defined signal strength level. So if you only want to receive signals stronger than "S7," you just configure the Menu and the Yaesu FT-60E will ignore all stations weaker than S7!

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): MONO-BAND AND MEMORYONLY OPERATING MODES
For the ultimate in operating simplicity, at those times when you need it, the Yaesu FT-60E offers capability for single-band (144 MHz or 430 MHz only) or Memory-channel-only
operating configurations. These may be particularly useful during search-andrescue or public service operations, when a new user may need to be trained quickly for use of the Yaesu FT-60E.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): ARTS™ (Automatic Range Transponder System)
The ARTS™ feature uses DCS signaling to inform both parties when you and another ARTS™-equipped station are within communications range. This may be particularly useful during Search-and Rescue situations, where is important to stay in contact with other members of your group.

FT-60E (FT-60E, FT60E, FT 60E, FT-60, FT 60, FT60): COMMERCIAL-QUALITY AUDIO
The Yaesu FT-60E features outstanding transmit and receive audio, thanks to its commercialgrade microphone element and speaker. You get crisp, clean audio that will get your message through even under difficult operating or propagation conditions.
