Yaesu FT-3D HT radio

February 8, 2021, I purchased a Yaesu FT-3D HT (hand held) portable radio.

It’s a full featured radio in a sub compact size.

I have had it for a month now and have had some great experiences with it.

My first contact with it was with a Diamond 77 (sma connection) antenna through the John C. Lincoln repeater run by the Thunderbird radio club.

But first, a little story how I got there.

I began programming the radio and got to the point where it was time to see if I was doing it right. I keyed the mic but no one was answering.
