Product Description

This unit is for 110 Volt U.S. Power sources.

Best of the Basics Airband Transceiver

The Yaesu FTA-230 Handheld VHF Transceiver is a compact, stylish, solid and affordable hand-held transceiver providing communication on the International Aircraft Communication Band. Additionally, it receives audio on the Navigation Band.

The FTA-230 boasts 700 mW of clean audio output and it also provides 8.33 kHz synthesizer steps for the new narrow-band channel plan.

The FTA-230 displays information with the exclusive Omni-GlowTM display back-lighting for minimal degradation of your night vision. NOAA weather band monitoring, 8-character Alpha/Numeric Display, 150 Memory Channels, 100 “Book Memory” Channels, VOX, and Side Tone are just some of the many features provided. The channel configurations can be easily reprogrammed in minutes using the optional PC Programming Kit and your PC.

BNC Antenna Connection

Re-engineered with a standardized BNC connection the FTA-230 will now allow a quick easy connection to an external antenna giving the user greater transmit and receive range and clarity.

Exclusive 12VDC charging sleeve

The FTA-230 comes value packaged with the CD-59 charging sleeve. The CD-59 gives the operator the freedom to keep the radio powered on continuously while it is connected to a 12VDC source. The slim form fitting design allows for easy radio operation.

Improved Channel Recall Flip-Flop feature

The software has been updated with a new advanced channel Flip-Flop feature. The FTA-230 will automatically store up to 10 of the last channels used, and allow quick access to recall those channels with just a few simple steps.

Submersible Construction

The FTA-230 was engineered for safety and durability. The radio is built around a solid die cast aluminum chassis with heavy duty gasketing throughout, allowing the radio to be submerged up to 3' for 30 minutes (JIS7 waterproofing standard) making this the most durable aviation transceiver on the market today.

NOAA Weather

The FTA-230 can receive all 10 NOAA weather broadcast frequencies. The Automatic Active Weather Channel Locator automatically scans for active NOAA weather stations in your area when WX band is selected. The FTA-230 includes a special feature that sounds an alarm when the special "Severe Weather" alert tone is received from a weather broadcast station. This can warn you of potentially hazardous flying conditions.

Yaesu FTA-230 is solid and easy to use
  • Overall a solid radio with an excellent form factor. An easy fit in the flight bag. I am impressed with the battery life and the antenna's BNC connector which I have always found to be more rugged than SMA connectors on other handhelds. When scanning multiple frequencies it is possible eliminate the annoying 'beep' when stopping on an active channel. I do wish, however, that Yaesu had left the concentric channel and volume knobs on top. The extra AAA battery pack and headset adapter are very useful.
  • Pros: solid, weatherproof, long battery life

Average quality
  • I find that the antenna is not too good and the range is quite poor on the ground. I get a lot of static and broken transmissions if I am more than 1/4 mile from the tower.
  • Pros: waterproof, robust and handy
  • Cons: awkward to program, very poor range with the included antenna
A Lifesaver!
  • I’ve had this transceiver for a couple months now and it has already saved my hide. The intercom went out in a 150 I was flying and luckily I had my Yaesu within arm’s reach. The transceiver is a nice, compact size, and has held up really well for the amount I’ve been using it. I highly recommend this transceiver.
