My Two Favorite Ham Radios For Christmas Presents

 I have been looking around think what two ham radios would make excellent Christmas Presents this year. Well my two favorite picks for Ham Radios are the Yaesu FT-450D Base Transceiver and the Yaesu FT-857D HF Transceiver. Both of these radios are HF or High Frequency Transceivers. They both do an excellent job and are rated very well at Amazon. They are not the cheapest of Ham Radio Transceivers and they are also not the most expensive.
 I love the fact that they have some unbelievable features and are not big in size. They could easily be used in a mobile type environment. I would however have to say that the Yaesu FT-450D is much more suited for mobile use mainly due to it's size. Just at amazon it has 4 out of 5 stars and 24 reviews presently at 79%, which is not bad at all. The 450D has a solid 5 star rating and with 15 customer reviews. So you can see they are doing pretty good. I would also check out eham.net at http://www.eham.net/reviews/products/14 and read what Ham Radio Operators are saying about these transceivers as well as many other Ham Radio Transceivers.

Handheld Transceiver Makes An Excellent Gift For The Ham Radio Operator

Since Christmas is getting closer we all start thinking about all those wonderful Ham Radio pieces of equipment we would like. One of those favorite items I can think of is a nice Handheld Transceiver. There are quite a few different ones to choose from and they all do an excellent job. In fact I remember watching a video where a ham radio operator used a hand held transceiver with a homebrew quad 2 meter antenna. He was getting some excellent results with it on the 2 meter band.
