Yaesu FT-450D Review
Yaesu FT-450D Overview
The Yaesu FT-450D Transceiver is a great entry level hf radio with exceptional customer reviews. It is compact in size however everything is still very accessible and easy to operate. The FT-450D has a very nice, quiet RX and the addition of DSP makes it a pleasure to operate. The digital readout is large and easy to read while the TX whacks out a very strong 100 watts of RF power. As with all Yaesu radio’s the speech processor is a delight to use and when coupled to a Yaesu MD-100A8X mic the audio reports are unbeatable. A great low budget HF rig with some great features.
Great entry level rig
The FT450D is perhaps the best entry level radio on the market. It is robust, compact and has a brilliant RX. I prefer the later FT450D as it has the backlit knobs and DSP built in. Certainly a nice little radio at a budget price too.
Big performance on a small budget
The Yaesu FT-450D represents great value as an entry level rig. Great receiver, easy to use and compact size. Great rig for the beginner as well as the avid user. 5 star performance all the way !
