Holiday season, Christmas season approaching and Yaesu have something new they’d like us to spend money on. A new 50 watt mobile radio with 144-146 and 430-440 MHz transmit coverage and 108-999.995 MHz extended receive coverage. Below we’ve got the mock up / PC design photo I suppose. Cost and availability sadly at the moment I’ve no news.

Yet another caveat: it has no FM broadcast support 😦
It’s the same foot print as the ftm-300. It’s pretty much looking like an updated FT-90. The tiny little 50 watt analog dualband they made years ago. Doesn’t have a lot of appeal. At least not for me.
According to the review on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLwWGK9BVCg, the price could be around $319. Too high for an analog only radio.
Thank you very much for the link and news. Indeed that’s a high price and guess won’t come quickly due to freight costs and availability.
