5 Watts Ouput
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 three feet).
Outstanding Receiver Audio
The FT-270R's hefty 700 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.
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.
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.
