The FT-270R is a compact, high-performance FM hand-held providing up to five Watts of RF power, along with big audio output (800 mW) and unmatched protection against the elements!
This radio is a very good choice for pilots due to the locking nature of the headset plug. The plug threads into the radio so it can NEVER accidentally come out during flight. And it is built to be really tough, handling all the extra abuse we pilots can dish out!
The 16-key FT-270R includes direct keyboard frequency entry and lots of memory space.
