WIMO Expert opinion

The very uncomplicated handling makes the FT-65E ideal for beginners or experienced users. Thanks to its robust design, this device can also withstand demanding conditions - ideal for outdoor use. With the quick memory access, you can quickly select important frequencies, saving time and eliminating long searches. You don't need an additional radio set (e.g. when on vacation) because you can receive FM radio stations as well as amateur radio.
The device only supports analog signals, so it is not possible to participate in radio traffic via C4FM or similar.

Technical description FT-65E

The FT-65E features the highest industry standards: 200 memories, 10 programmable scan ranges, independent transmit/receive frequency in memory, multiple scan options, VOX operation (with optional accessories), ARTS and much more. The operating frequency can be set in steps from 5 to 100 kHz in VFO mode, CTCSS and DCS filter functions ensure undisturbed operation and targeted addressing of individual subscribers or entire groups. A VHF broadcast receiver (78 ... 108 MHz) is also built in. With the optional programming cable, memory and other functions can be set from the computer, and cloning functions are also provided.
The antenna connection on the unit is a high-quality recessed SMA connector, i.e. female thread and male inner conductor. Accordingly, the antenna has an external thread and a female inner conductor. This means that in addition to the SMA SRA-15 supplied, certain antennas from other manufacturers also fit, including those from Diamond with a "J" in the product name, such as the SRJ-77CA. The unit is particularly robust and splash-proof (IP 54, MIL-STD 810 C, D, E).

Application description FT-65E

With the FT-65E, Yaesu continues its successful series of compact dual-band handheld radios. The FT-65E offers a wide range of features in a compact and robust design. Up to 5 watts of transmit power are available (switchable to 2.5 W and 500 mW), a 36 mm diameter loudspeaker provides 1 W AF power – and thus good intelligibility even in noisy environments. The included LiIon battery has 1950 mAh capacity and thus offers up to 17 hours of operating time, optionally also 2500 mAh and up to 22 hours. The included charger provides full power again in just 3.5 hours.
This radio is designed for easy and uncomplicated operation. For example, four "quick memories" (QRK) provide direct access to four channels or functions that can be set by the user as desired. The unit is robustly constructed and complies with protection class IP54. This means that it can also be used in bad weather or off-road without any problems. Emergency signalling and a bright torch increase safety on mountain hikes, for example, where an amateur radio has great advantages over a mobile phone anyway, which suffers from lack of network coverage there, while the radio can even benefit from an exposed location. At 52 mm wide, 90 mm high and only 30 mm deep, the FT-65E is very handy and yet not too small.
