Author Topic: Recommendations for VHF/UHF Mobile w/Remote Head  (Read 176 times)

I'm looking for a new mobile radio for the vehicle. Looking at the available space, I need to find a radio that has a detachable (remote) head. I have been looking at a Yaesu FT-7900R. Which has a 20' remote mount capability.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a VHF/UHF radio with the smallest possible remote head?

Thanks and 73s!

The Yaesu FTM-10 is pretty small, but is QRP.

FTM-10r is 50 watts on 2 meters, 40 watts on 440.
FTM-10sr puts out 10 watts VHF, 7 watts UHF.

They both use the same control head. Looks like the body for the SR, is strictly for remote mounting.

Take your pick. They all do the same thing essentially.

Just pick the one that has the features you desire more than the other models you desire less.

I really like the Alinco DR735T/E   http://www.alinco.com/Products/ham/mbl/DR-735/

The Icom 2730 is nice too

I like Yaesu but their dual and quad banders are too small for my taste to really see good in the truck while underway..
