Yaesu FTA-550L Airband 8.33kHz (COM/NAV)

 295,00 395,00

The YAESU FTA-550L is an Airband COM/NAV radio with ILS and VOR Radio navigation. You can save some money if you take it without the Lithium battery and just use the provided AA Battery tray.

This Handheld radio does not have GPS like the FTA-750L and does not have GPS, Bluetooth or a color display like the FTA-850L. If you don’t need the ILS or VOR functionality you can get the FTA-450L which is COM only.

Due to Component shortages, the European Distributor does not have stock. We expect to get devices in June. Please email us if you want to be notified when they arrive.
