SOLID HT  Time owned: more than 12 months
Great HT. I own 2 of them, and cannot imagine life without one now. I just got into a nasty crash, sending my poor little 411 crashing ito the dashboard at about 60 mph. It broke one screw holding the case together, and dropped the battery. I squished it together, and it works like new. I've owned the older one since 1996, and my newer one for about 6 months. Rock solid and reliable. Best monoband HT I've used.

Great HT if you want 2M only!!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have been using Hts in work since the early 80's and for fun since becoming a Ham in 1992. Seen lots of good and bad.

I had a 411E from 1993 until recently when it went Tango Uniform after a bottle of suprisingly corrosive shower gel leaked into the bottom of my travel bag.

This is one tought little radio! It was dropped twice (that I know of) onto a concrete floor, once into a toilet (fortunatly and unused toilet) and survived a 400' fall from a helicopter - only cracking the AA case. After the fall I had it checked out at a radio shop and after they had put it through the test equipment they said it had better specs than most of the commercial HTs they serviced.

It is a very easy radio to use with plenty of bells and whistles. The essential programming steps are not hard to learn and although it is a small radio the keys are a reasonable size. Another plus is that Yaesu is still producing them after all these years.

I would recommend this HT to anyone who is looking for a single band 2m Ht.
