    The new monitoring feature is great. To have five frequencies always at a glance. There are now new possibilities to safe energy in standby, when normaly using the home shack.

    Face discussion aside -- it seems pretty obvious that Yaesu's marking budget was large (or the dealers or distributors offering review samples?) for this new radio. Of course, I know the YouTubers are innocent since they're just doing a job and working the algorithm yadda yadda. Either way, seems less like "news" than "mutually beneficial agreement between digital media peddlers and manufacturers trying to advertise."

    I have asked SEVERAL times to the Frontman about the transmit audio level imbalance that exists in all the other HT's since the FT1 between Analog and Digital, and I have gotten....Z E R O response as usual. Anyone have any knowledge of this being fixed please let me know. I wont buy another Fusion portable until this is corrected. Its not a problem on the mobiles, but it is on the Ht's.

    God, you're from 1-country?

    Seriously, if you have a problem with all the guys making kooky faces on the videos... why not write an email to the head Poobah at QRZ?

    I stand by comments, lighten up, Francis. Ham Radio = Hobby. AMATEUR.

    In 2021 its a shame that YAESU, ICOM etc can't include Bluetooth formats that are HANDS FREE USEABLE with car audio systems. Just ridiculous!
