Another scanner/radio question?
« on: July 08, 2013, 07:27:00 PM »
Has anyone purchased the Yaesu FT-270R? If so, what about the programming software, etc.?

The only one in our group that owns one is Bob J.  I programmed it for him, wasn't hard doing it manual.

Figured as much, but just was wondering about the software...

I don't use the software, but both my FT-270R and FT-277R are easy to program manual.

The most annoying thing, is unlike my FT-1900 mobile, it gives no indication if your in narrow or wide mode.

But then again my older FT-2600R doesn't ether.
If in doubt, Notch it out!
