Taking the backlit transceiver screen to a whole new level, Yaesu's FTA-550L features an impressive 1.7" x 1.7" full dot matrix LCD display with a user-friendly, icon-driven menu system. The backlight's brightness is fully adjustable to accommodate virtually any lighting condition, and the entire unit boasts an IPX5 water protection rating for reliable operation in all environments. Also impressive is the -550L's VOR navigation capabilities. When the unit picks up a VOR signal, the display automatically goes to the NAV screen and displays a CDI for the signal. The transceiver also supports ILS localizer navigation and receives both NOAA weather channels and alerts. Additionally, the transceiver can store up to 200 memory channels with 15 alphanumeric character designations. A compact, lightweight, incredibly versatile unit for all your aviation communication needs.
Great seller! Fast and professional!!!
The contents of the packaging was in new condition with no damage. Radio works well and the accessories are top notch. Learn the features of the radio by reading over the instructions BUT really, just fiddle with it. Exterior box was slightly crushed during shipment. I would recommend this product to others.
Radio was everything I expected it to be. Customer service @ pilot mall exceptional. Shipper on this item was UPS. Their service not so much.
Excellent, Everything I expected.
Good, sturdy handheld
I have not used this radio in the air but on the ground it picked up signal well. It was not great at long distance signals but I did not expect it to because it is a handheld. I would want to have an external antenna connection in the plane for best reception but as a backup it is great.
Awesome. Love my new purchase already.
