Yaesu FT-2900R

This was the first mobile rig I ever bought.  It’s quite the heavy-duty radio.  It can operate at 75, 30, 10 and 5 watts. Behind the head and on top of the circuitry sits one very large heat sink, allowing it to be a completely fan-less design, which I appreciate.  Also the built-in speaker is more than adequate for what I needed in m Ford Flex.  If all you need is a 2 meter mobile rig, this will do what you need.  The only downside was that I couldn’t program it with Chirp, so I had to buy a separate application for it.
