|The YAESU FTA-750L combines tradition with innovation. Born from a history of high quality communications the FTA-750L now includes a 66 channel GPS receiver for reliable navigation. Boasting an oversize full dot matrix LCD display, the FTA-750L Airband Transceiver / GPS provides full communication on the Aircraft communications Band and additionally provides VOR and ILS navigation features on the "NAV" band, and waypoint navigation with the built in GPS receiver. The FTA-750L includes NOAA weather band monitoring and the capability of programming up to 200 memory channels with a quick and easy channel recall feature. The brand new easy to operate menu system is icon driven making it simple to navigate through all of the powerful features this transceiver / GPS has to offer. Additionally the FTA-750L can easily be reprogrammed in minutes using the optional PC Programming software and the supplied USB programming cable.|
I was happy to buy this unit from AS it was actually a bit less than buying from Amazon, and I would rather patronise a regular business than the behemoth Amazon. The device was well packaged, arrived quickly. I havent used all the features yet, but I have been impressed with the Comms so far. For such a small radio, the clear-sight range is really good, way better than the 5-6 mile range others reported. I live 14 miles from KDYL, and I am able to hear the Unicom clearly from this distance, also from aircraft at 30,000 feet! I have yet to experience the poor battery life others have reported, but I have not used the GPS yet. I would advise however, like with all battery-operated rechargeable devices, perform a FULL charge first. If you dont, you will never realise full battery potential, whether it is your car, lawn tractor, or this radio.
It loads quickly when turning on. Saves favorite frequencies. Has GPS
Always happy with Spruce. Good job.
more than I expected, the service is fantastic.
Very happy, Clear sound, accurate GPS. Two channel monitoring feature a big plus.
Works as advertised. Amazing how many features can be packed into such a little device!
Tested the ILS function on this radio against the twin 430Ws in the aircraft that I fly professionally. Picked up the Localizer and Glideslope earlier, and matched the certified equipment exactly down to minimums. This feature alone makes the purchase of this radio an excellent decision as an emergency backup.
Excellent standby - the Lithium ion battery pack is supplemented with AA battery back up. I already went through the cost of another battery pack so you can use AA batteries is a big asset. Easy to use, adapter for headset. All you need to add is a push to talk for hands free.
Just purchased. Replaced an older different brand handheld that was in disrepair. I just used this radio to contact ATC from 8,000MSL, as a test. Unit works well and is easy to operate. There is nothing I would change. Great handheld radio. Excellent choice for an emergency radio.
This works exactly as advertised. It was delivered on time. Was very impressed with the accuracy and functions of this radio. On it maiden voyage it matched perfectly to all instruments on the panel, very accurate. Clarity is excellent. Wasnt to sure what to expect on range but I have no issues with it even on the ground in mountains. You want a new safety buddy? This is it!! Customer service was excellent when I had a few questions. Very impressed all the way around.
