    Yes, Patrick WD9EWK explained it to me, and I apologize for the error on my part.

    I think the FCC should list it correctly.. obviously it's not a scanner, it's a transceiver.

    not a problem. Sorry if Patrick already covered it, I scanned the last few pages I missed but obviously missed that.

    Yes that has been established. But I said in a previous post that the FCC should list it correctly.

    seems to me for over the past 50 years, company will produce a product that is the greatest thing since the electric light bulb and then they go and change it, have it made cheap,not user friendly, turn it into a peace of junk, add a high price to it and make worst than a MFJ product and it pisses everyone off! NOW WHY DO THAT???WHY MAKE EVERYTHING SO CRAPPY? MAKE THE PRODUCTS RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!

    With all these opinions, does any one really listen to these frustrated opinions from those at the company and take the valid "good" information from all the responses and do something with it or is it just a thread to vent frustration with the products being introduced. I would hope Yaesu would listen to its customers.

    Seems a bit Baofengish to me.... I have one of those.

    My FT50 works quite well as of yet!

    Oh, I did not see it mentioned here but some of the previous Yaesu accessories will not work with it. They went back to the dual prong mic/speaker but they are closer together than previous Yaesu models. Antenna is reverse SMA...among a couple I found out. I am sure there might be more.
