Yaesu FT-2900R 2 Meter Mobile




What do you think about this video?

mememojo: Can it be used for radio to radio communication ?

ImageJPEG: 0:43, I like how you want to listen to the Walmart employee VHF radios.

lawman1995: I'm assuming that is an older model ranger? I had about a 6 hour long fight with my 04 ranger trying to find a place to mount my ft-2900r there are hardly any spots to mount a ham radio in a 5 speed ranger. I have mine hooked up to a wilson antenna sitting on the roof. I noticed you said you were in northern Alabama. I'm from lawrenceburg, TN and part of the Lawrence County Skywarn. We have maybe 2 locals here that will talk but it is usually just adjusting repeaters and trying to install a voter for several recievers.

hutanu ion: How do you get station set it to issue on a channel and to receive the well's onybody at exp.tx-155.725 rx-155.125

SoundAdvice4u: Y'all talk to Walmart alot down there? :42 channel 34. I don't think the unions will them up north.

Rustifer: Do you recommend the optional Yaesu ADMS-2900-USB ?

Colin Zapalac: I have a picture of mine somewhere. I was working a repeater 62 miles away in Burnet, TX from Kyle, TX…internal temp got up to 165ºF.

kk4aum: i normally run about 10 watts on mine, for some odd reason it was left on full power lol

Dave S: Great radio, I have one as my base station at the moment, but it will eventually go in my FJ60. Just FYI, you should use the minimum wattage necessary to make your contacts. 75W is a quite high for hitting local repeaters and/or simplex!

kk4aum: Im not sure where exactly mine was made I am pretty sure it was made in Japan though. I really like the built in WX feature on these radios.. I have heard alerts from North Mississippi and central Tennessee before storms even got close to my area. Another thing to note is that these are really easy to program. Very good starter rig for someone moving up into ham radio.

fawooter sevilla: yo tengo una pero esta hecha en china decirme si este modelo lo hace ya china en vez de japon o esque me an timado gracias ea5hrp

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
