Yaesu FT2DR: Touchscreen HT

So Ford is replacing Microsoft's in-car infotainment platform and replacing it with QNX. Several of the comments to the Slashdot article are complaining about the lack of dedicated knobs and buttons. That complaint echos those I hear from those that don't want to do SDR, because they want knobs and not a mouse.

Makes me wonder what the response will be to the Yaesu FT2DR touchscreen HT. Universal Radio shows a list price of $640, so you know how interested I'll be.


  1. Looks like Yaesu has finally seen the light a produced a quality hand in the FT2DR
    Icom should be embarrassed with DSTAR, really icom wake up, why do you continue to still produce DSTAR? With the horrible sounding audio, the engineers at Icom must have been asleep
