Yaesu FT-4XE

My FT-4X with a Diamond SRJ77 antenna.

This is the first handheld radio (and the first radio at all) that I got.

I bought this from the local club I was member at that time for 60 €. The actual price of this radio at that time was about 70-80 €. As of today, the radios price is at 79 € (

This is a very basic radio, it is analog only. The speaker is loud enough to let the integrated broadband receiver run on your favourite radio frequency when working outside.

The radio is also small enough to just take it with you when you want to quickly have a radio with you.

I’m not using it that much. Mostly when I want to listen to a FM radio station.
