That is correct. The Portland, OR store is the one closest to me so they will handle my order. My guess is, they get their shipments of the radios from Yaesu or their main warehouse sent to them then they ship them to the customer. First time I've actually purchased anything from HRO.
I can't seem to find anything on this but the Yaesu FTM-400XDR is on sale for $409 at HRO. Thinking of picking one up myself as I get ready to schedule my HAM test!
EDIT: I have purchased the radio. Looks like I need to schedule my HAM test next!
Howdy neighbor. I'm located in Oregon City but used to live in Gresham. Silverfox and La-Dee are great trail spots. If you're in the Molalla area, go down Sawtell Rd until it becomes Family Camp Rd and there are TONS of trails and shooting spots up there.
I have been debating in getting my HAM license and an in-car radio. Would it be wise to add the in-car radio before I do my test? I've been hearing conflicting arguements that you can listen on them without a license, you just can't speak. Is that true?
