2 m & 80 cm Yaesu FTM400-XDR
80cm? Am I missing info about a new band coverd by the FTM-400XDR. I thought it was a 2m/70cm only rig… didn’t know it covered 80cm as well… or did you mean 80m? Even then the 400XDR doesn’t cover the HF bands.

btw, just hackling your feathers. Congratulations on getting your ticket. And nice radio… it’s on my very short list of radios I need to get…

Sorry. 70 cm is correct.
It was late and I should have put my phone away an hour or so prior! My ‘tired texting’ is worse than my ‘drunk texting’…
Hahaha… it’s all good man… like I said I was rumpling your feathers… I knew what ya meant… just didn’t want some greenhorn that just got his ticket to try searching 80cm and thinking that a UHF/VHF radio would also do 80m HF…
