5 Watts Output
The FT-270R provides 5 Watts of solid power

Large Backlit LCD Display
Want a handheld with a display you can actually see?! The FT-270R is the handheld for you.

The FT-270R conforms to IPX7 specifications for submersibility (submersion for up to 30 minutes at a depth of one meter).

Outstanding Receiver Audio
The FT-270R's hefty 800 mW of audio provides plenty of volume when operating in a noisy environment.

1400 mAh Battery Pack Yields Long Operating Time
The FT-270R is supplied with a long-life 1400 mAh Ni-MH Battery Pack, for extended operating time during search-and-rescue or public service event operations.

Power Saving Circuit Design
The FT-270R design includes Yaesu's exclusive power saving circuit design to ensure longer operating time that most other handhelds with comparable batteries.

Expanded Receiver Coverage
The receiver's frequency range is 136-174 MHz, covering many public service, marine, and government channels.

User Password
To prevent an unauthorized person from using your FT-270R, you may engage a security password that must be keyed in prior to operation, if you like.

200 Memory Channels
The 200 memories may be partitioned into as many as 10 memory groups. Alpha-numeric labeling is available on all memories.

Keyboard Frequency Entry
Operating frequencies may be entered directly from the front panel keypad, which may also be used for quick recall of memory channels by number.

Weather Broadcast Channels
In the U.S. version, a dedicated special memory bank of ten NOAA Weather Channels is available, with a "Severe Weather" alert capability.

EAI (Emergency Automatic ID) Feature
Ideal for search-and-rescue work, the EAI feature can be commanded on so as to identify your FT-270R, 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.

Split Tone Capability
Besides the usual CTCSS and DCS Encode/Decode features you've come to know and love on a Yaesu transceiver, the FT-270R includes a "Split Tone" capability that allows you to Encode a CTCSS tone, and Decode DCS, or vice-versa. You can also Encode (without decoding) either CTCSS or DCS.

Rugged, quality build
I have been nothing but impressed with this radio from the start. The build quality is unmatched, and with the battery save options, the battery lasts forever. I've gone a week between charges with light transmitting, and mostly monitoring. Easy to read display, I was able to program it easily without any software. If you're looking for a mono-band 2m, this is an excellent choice.

Great HT
I have had this HT for about 2 years now. I found it easy to program, and simple to operate. I live in a rural area, but can still hit some repeaters with the rubber antenna. I often use it as a mobile in the minivan (my wife won't let me install one) with a magnet mount antenna and get nice range. (I use the speaker/mic when in the van.
