Great radio, especially for a newbie. Easy to program, transmits and receives beautifully. Only had my license and this radio since November 2022 but have appreciated the time I’ve had this radio transceiver.

My RMS VHF node runs on this
Review by Alex KA3BQE
I got this radio to run my RMS node on 2m. It has been running now for over a month and with 80W has great reach through the Diamond 17' vertical.

Just buy one--Great Value on a Rock Solid Radio
Review by Dan
No complaints on this one. Easy to program even without spending $50 on a cable and programming software. Does Wires X, but I have never used that. Just perfect for the purpose it was built for. Simple, rugged, powerful, large display, clear audio, 2 meter perfection, beast of a radio.
Excellent 2 meter mobile radio
Review by Robert
Solid built mono-band mobile or base station radio. Easy to program. Easy to see amber display. Ready to use right out of the box. A delight to operate 5, 10, 30 and 80 watt output.
Best 2 Meter mobile transceiver for the price
Review by Steve ASA7275
Like it's predecessor, the FT2980r leads the pack when it comes to 2 meter radios. It is the most powerful with a full 80 watts output on high, and like it's ancestor the FT2900 it is tougher than any other mobile rig you can find.

The only thing it lacks is a data jack for operating digital modes. Perhaps they will add a digital port or USB in the future, but right now this is as good as it gets. It would be easy to make up an adapter cable set for the audio in and out so working digital can be done, but not without some expertise in electronics. Perhaps a cable solution is already available, but I haven't seen one up to this point. For under $140.00 you will not find it's equal and once it is programmed you can't find a better 2 meter transceiver.
A performer!
Review by Joe
This rig is easy to program with a racing engine under the hood. Run it easy or run it all the way up to 80Watts. It is not a luxury thing. It only does 2 meters analog but that is what I wanted.
Great radio..
Review by David
Great performance all the way around. Would highly recommend. This is year 2 and I have zero complaints.
