YAESU FT-250R VHF 136-174Mhz Handheld radio
ULTRA COMPACT 5-WATT 144 MHz HANDHELD
Compact yet incredibly rugged, the FT-250R 2-meter handheld is derived from our Vertex commercial transceiver line, providing exceptional receiver performance along with clean, clear transmit audio. Built to withstand the rigors of outdoor use, the 16-key FT-250R is constructed inside a die-cast aluminum housing, with a large, high-output speaker delivering 700 mW of Loud Audio for outside field environments. And the illuminated keypad provides easy viewing during nighttime operation. You need a radio that's as tough as your operating environment; compare the features of the FT-250R to other handhelds, and you’ll see that there is no comparison!
5 Watts Power Output
The FT-250R puts out a maximum of 5 Watts of clean power, with selectable power-saving choices of 2 Watts and ½ Watt also being available with the touch of a front panel key.
Long-life Battery and Desktop Charger
The FT-250R comes complete with a 1400 mAh battery and a desirable desktop charger.
The FT-250R provides 700mW of Loud Audio and is the perfect choice for noisy enviornments.
Power Saving Circuit Design
The FT-250R includes Yaesu's exclusive power saving circuit design that provides for longer operating time that most other handhelds with comparable batteries.
Direct Keypad Frequency Entry
The FT-250R includes a 16-key keypad, providing both direct frequency entry and fingertip DTMF control on transmission. And a 9-memory DTMF autodialer allows simple access to autopatches or Internet Linking nodes such as the Yaesu WIRES-II system.
The versatile memory system of the FT-250R includes a total of 209 channels that can store frequency, CTCSS/DCS information, repeater shift, and a 7-character alpha-numeric label to aid in channel recognition.
Wide/Narrow Deviation Selection
For operation in narrow-band channel situation, the FT-250R includes both Wide and Narrow deviation selection capability, to ensure compatibility with local operating requirements.
The FT-250R is tested to meet the exacting requirements of MIL STD 810C/D for shock and vibration. Among the most rugged Amateur hand-helds ever created, the VX-150 is ready for action in the most challenging operating environments!
