Compact Air band Transceiver with Navigation and Multi-Band receiver
The Yaesu FTA-720 has it all! A compact case size with a functional layout gives it style, surrounded by a die-cast magnesium chassis with rubberized armor for durability, and a multi-band receiver covering the Aviation band, NOAA weather, BRS, and AM/FM bands makes it the smart choice for any aviation enthusiast.
In additional to full voice transmit and receive on the Aviation Band, the FTA-720 provides VOR navigation with course indicator and a course deviation needle giving TO and FROM bearing information.
The FTA-720 comes packaged with: BNC Helical Antenna (YHA-74), 110V charger (PA-48B), Li-Ion battery (FNB-80LI), and headset adapter (CT-96)
BNC Antenna Connection
Re-engineered with a standardized BNC connection the FTA-720 will now allow a quick easy connection to an external antenna giving the user greater transmit and receive range and clarity.
Rugged Die-Cast Magnesium Construction
The unmatched ruggedness of the FTA-720 takes away the worry of accidentally dropping your radio, thanks to the light weight die-cast magnesium chassis and rubber armor on the bottom corners.
160 Programmable Memory Channels
70 memory channels can be easily programmed into the FTA-720 allowing quick easy access to frequently used channels on the aviation band. Additionally, 90 "book memory" channels can be programmed into the unit using the optional PC programming software and cable. All memory channels can be labeled with either a channel number assignment, operating frequency display, or an alpha-numeric channel name display.
In addition to Aviation bands the FTA-720 will also receive music stations on the FM broadcast band, allowing the user to listen to their favorite FM music station during times when the aviation bands are not being used. Additionally the FTA-720 gives you access to reception coverage of the (BRS) Business Radio Service band.
Multi-Color LED Light
Among all the features of the FTA-720 the multi-color LED Strobe light is one of the most innovative. Different colored LED indicators can be programmed into the unit to designate RX, TX, Emergency mode, WX Alert, and the overheat warning.
The FTA-720 was engineered for safety and durability. The radio is built around a solid die cast magnesium chassis with heavy duty gasketing throughout, allowing the radio to be submerged up to 3' for 30 minutes (JIS7 waterproofing standard) making this the most durable aviation transceiver on the market today
This is an excellent compact handheld radio. This unit is a bit smaller than some of the other handhelds which makes it a great addition to the flight bag. With that, however, the unit has a learning curve. After you figure out the menus, this is absolutely the best handheld out there.
