Yaesu FTM-10R / Bluetooth

Post by 2W0PWR on Wed Jan 23, 2008 2:20 am


Has anyone used one? This radio has the option to use it with a bluetooth headset. Is it any good? It's very costly with all the extras but a very durable radio.

Had one and freebanded it, nice as it has the 6.25 step but sold it as it seemed not to be (for me) as good as the past stuff that they had released. Mine was revision 1 software and now is different types so guess they are a lot better

Yaesu FTM-10R Review

Post by 2W0PWR on Thu Jul 17, 2008 9:58 pm

I have one it the car. The Bluetooth option works really well. If you buy the optional board for the Bluetooth you can fit it in the head of the unit or in the main unit. It's a great option to have both as you may fit the base of the radio away which would mean you will have a weak signal for it to work.

The radio does not come with a normal mic as the face of the radio has a built in ptt and mic. I have not used this option as I always use the handsfree kit.

I have not had any connection issues with pairing the radio and Bluetooth since I had it so am really pleased.

The face of the radio comes with a mini speaker an a main one on the back of it. You can turn them either on F (Front) R (Rear) or both. You also have the ability to turn them both off if your using the optional Bluetooth kit so you don't hear the echo from the slight delay using Bluetooth.

Can highly recommend the radio and would be great if you had the VX-8R so you could use the same headset.

Good Points

  • Bluetooth
  • Separation Kit inc
  • Nice display

Bad Points

  • No Std mic inc
  • Single band receive
  • Menu not the most simple
