Yaesu FTA-310 NAV-COM Aviation Transceiver


The Yaesu FTA-310 is the new replacement to the very popular Vertex Standard VXA-300 Pilot III.

The Yaesu FTA-310 is a professional grade hand-held transceiver providing communication (transmit and receive) capability on the International Aircraft Communication Band ("COM" band: 118 ~ 136.975 MHz) and also provides 8.33 kHz synthesizer steps for operating on the new narrow-band channel plan. Additionally the FTA-310 provides VOR and CDI navigation features on the "NAV" band (108 ~ 117.975 MHz).

The Yaesu FTA-310 features a submersible design that can withstand water intrusion at 3 feet for up to 30 minutes. Great for flight line personnel, airshow use, and anyone using a transceiver outdoors where it may rain. In addition it's 700 mw audio amplifier makes the FTA-310 louder than any other handheld transceiver available today (for example, it's about 30% louder than the Icom IC-A23). The Yaesu FTA-310 is powered by a high capacity 1400 Mah Ni-MH battery that will last over 14 hours between charges.

The FTA-310 includes both temperature and supply voltage displays with Yaesu's exclusive Omni-Glow display back-lighting for minimal degradation of your night vision, NOAA weather band monitoring, 8-character Alpha/Numeric Display, 150 Memory Channels, and up to 100 "Book Memory" Channels. The channel configurations can be easily programmed in minutes using the optional PC Programming Kit and your PC.

More great features for the Yaesu FTA-310:

  • 5 watt TX output power
  • 8.33 Khz channel spacing (RX only)
  • Built in VOX (voice activated) for "hot mic" that is fully adjustable
  • Nav-Comm display
  • 150 memory channels with 8 character alpha-numeric titles
  • NOAA weather receive
  • Back lit keypad and display with Omni-Glow back-lighting for minimal degradation of your night vision
  • 700 mW of clean audio output from its 1.4" (36-mm) diameter loudspeaker
  • Built in P.A. mode
  • Extra large LCD display (30% larger display characters)
  • Standardized BNC antenna connection allows quick and easy connection to an external antenna giving the user greater transmit and receive range and clarity.
  • One touch squelch adjustment
  • Receive battery saver (extends battery charge life)
  • Three (3) Year Parts and Labor Warranty

The Yaesu FTA-310 meets the demanding ruggedness requirements of MIL-STD 810. The durable high impact housing and die-cast chassis assure reliable performance even under the most adverse operating conditions. And Yaesu's extensive rubber gasketing system around the housing seams, keypad, knobs, microphone jacks and speaker grill ensures that the Yaesu FTA-310 is submersible that can withstand water intrusion at 3 feet for up to 30 minutes.

For quick access to operating frequencies, simply enter the frequency information directly from the 16 button keypad, then press the "Push To Talk" (PTT) button to transmit. There's no need to store frequencies in memory before you can operate on them.

150 memory channels can be easily programmed into the FTA-310 allowing quick easy access to frequently used channels on the aviation band. Additionally, 100 "book memory" channels can be programmed into the unit using the optional PC programming software and cable. All memory channels can be labeled with either a channel number assignment, operating frequency display, or an alpha-numeric channel name display.

Breaking the squelch threshold has never been easier. Press the monitor (MON) button for two seconds and the FTA-310's squelch remains opened for monitoring weak and distant signals. Pressing MON again restores squelch settings. This is TRUE one handed operation. No need to fumble with tightly spaced concentric knobs!

Receiver Battery Saver feature is designed to maximize the life of the transceiver's battery. When the FTA-310 is in the standby mode the battery saver de-energizes the transceivers circuitry, waking up at user selected intervals to sample for radio activity. If no activity is detected the FTA-310 goes back into its sleep mode. Current consumption is minimized, thereby maximizing battery life. This feature is only found on Yaesu's air band transceivers! The 1400 Mah Nickel Metal Hydride Battery will last over 14 hours between cycle charges.

The FTA-310 can receive all 10 NOAA weather broadcast frequencies. The Automatic Active Weather Channel Locator automatically scans for active NOAA weather stations in your area when the Weather band is selected.

The Yaesu FTA-310 allows easy access to the Menu ("set") mode. The Menu mode is a straightforward and intuitive feature for changing the operating parameters. This will allow easy user access to squelch settings, clearing memory information, scanning, scan lamp, keypad beep, battery saver settings, display backlighting and priority channel check time. Setting the more advanced features of a transceiver has never been easier.

Your Yaesu FTA-310 includes:

  • NiMh battery (1400 mah)
  • Overnight charger (PA-48B)
  • Charger Cradle (CD-28)
  • Exclusive charging sleeve (CD-59)

Yaesu FTA 310 Transceiver Review
by David from San Francisco CA USA 

Pros: 1. Right size for single hand use
Review: 1. Radio is easy to use , even with one hand .
2. Receiver however, needs to be more sensitive to get distant ATIS information .
3. A separate squelch is nice to have , even though using the monitoring button basically allows one to reduce the squelch to zero for maximum sensitivity .
4. Excellent battery life since you can use your own higher capactity Nickel Metal Hydride batteries instead of the included battery pack.

Nice radio
by RV Niner from Montana 

Pros: Ruigged, good audio, comfy in the hand, and a perfect size.
Cons: Does not have an active/standby flip flop in VFO mode. Poor belt clip.
Review: One reviewer said you had to do programming protocol in-flight. I have no idea what he was referring to, because it is very quick and simple to tune and operate. You can type in the frequency directly in VFO mode, select from your own user memories by merely turning the knob to scroll through them, or use the book memory mode that is pre-programmed with common frequencies.

The old model of this radio used a funky antenna connection. The new model went to a regular BNC connector, like it should be. Oddly, the product video on this page shows the old Vertex model with the antenna connector that needs an adapter.

by Jeffrey from Woodville VA USA

Old technology
by Wiley from Greenville NC USA 

Pros: May be a back unit only.
Cons: Why buy old, obsolete equipment?
Review: This radio design should be trashed in favor of available, user friendly hard and software. It's simply not a good idea to be distracted by trying to program a much too complex protocol of entries on a way too small display while trying to do an approach in a relatively difficult to handle home built.

High Quality product
by Nick from Melbourne Australia 

Pros: Nice and loud, solid construction, great battery life
Review: Was looking around for a radio and this one was the winner! It is a really well built and has had a pretty good battery life so far. Been using it quite a bit around the aerodrome does all the jobs

Takes a few minutes to go through the manual and learn to program it but apart from that - really good.

I am based in Australia, so some of the features including all the pre-programmed features dont really apply - but nothing major to affect you for day to day use.

Excellent Radio
by C from Central Indiana USA 

Pros: Quality, price, features
Cons: Outdated PC software
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] High quality from Yaesu (parent company) that has been making superb 2-way radios for quite some time. Less expensive than Icom and has a few more features. Only negative is the software to be used with a PC. It has not been kept up-to-date for Windows 7 and Windows 8....maybe they will update it soon!

Great unit.
by Tony from Melbourne VIC Australia 

Pros: Price, extras, solid, waterproof, ease of use
Cons: Needs different country plugs, not a big drama
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Another great delivery to Australia from My Pilot Store. Basic functions are easy to use straight from the box, entering a band etc, alot easier than some I`ve had in the past. Certainly haven`t used all the functions it can do, but will get there. Although unit does feel slightly heavy, I do prefer that, feels a very solid reliable unit. Did come with some free extras which made it even better value, only thing it didn`t have was an Australian plug to charge it, but a cheap adapter fixed that. No dramas working with my headset (Telex) just plug and play. I would expect alot of years use out of this.

LOTS better than the older transiever I have.
by Rick from Buckner MO USA 

Pros: Power packed and water resistant. A good buy!
Cons: None
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Does all I want it to do and much more. I like that it hase time to learn the functions, but every good a VOR function that is very sensitive and very accurate. It does take some time to learn to use all the functions, but that's normal with any sophisticated instrument.

Looks very familiar!
by Fred,at Travelers Aid JFK from Forest Hills NY USA 

Pros: Fits in your hand;light weight;receive both LGA/JFK from my Apartment approx.7 miles away from either airport.
Cons: Price seems somewhat high.But what isn't these days?
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] This unit is basically identical to my Yaesu "Aviator Pro II" except for a better Antenna; the keyboard lights up;the batteries are interchangeable BUT I LIKE IT !!  Which is most important.  Receiving Tower,Approach,Departure and Ground Controls at JFK is poor from inside the Terminals due to too much metal/flourescent fixtures etc. but outside these reception and transmission is fine.

Good stuff but............
by Peter Pan1 from Singapore 

Pros: Compact and weatherproof.
Cons: Nil
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] I'm satisfied with the Vertex that I've bought. If only the freight to Singapore could be more less costly, I'll probably ordered more stuff.

It would be nice if Vertex charger can come optional with either 110v or 220v. The package which I've got comes standard with 110v only. I need a 220v charger instead.

Good radio for the price
by Jared from Houston, TX, USA 

Pros: Small size, long battery life, included hardware
Cons: Could be more intuitive to program
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] I really like the compact size and long battery life. The NAV receiver with CDI works great. This is a good all-around handheld either for ground use or as a backup in the airplane.

The NAV receiver gives a valid reading 30 miles away from a VOR at 2000 feet, so it works as well as I would expect.

The only thing I would call a negative is that it could be more intuitive to program, especially the CDI function. Some of it may be that I am a relatively new pilot and not familiar with handhelds in general, so I did not reduce the rating because of it. The manual is comprehensive and well written.

The radio should fit nicely in any flight bag. I am able to put it in the pouch that came with my flight bag without removing the antenna.

Another positive is that the radio came with the base charging station, cigarette lighter adapter, belt clip and aircraft antenna adapter. That is a very good deal for the price.

Excellent Value!
by A Customer from Redding, CA 

Pros: Better quality than I-Com (Icom not waterproof) and less costly than SP-400 which has contrast problems.
Cons: None. Manual is easy if you have half a brain and a free morning or afternoon, and don't suffer from attention deficit disorder.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Obviously the complaints about this unit are due to pilots not willing to sit down with the manual (which to me is the fun part), or non-pilots who don't know any different. The buttons are not hard to press; they are easy to press. Reception is great. You don't "need" to program freqs into the memory; just key in the freq you want, same as in your airplane. You don't program 200 freqs in your airplane do you? Of course hand-helds are not for tranmitting 20 miles out; they are an emergency back-up. For example, use it to report directly over the field 500' or more above Class D airspace (just to be safe); you will be effectively less than a mile from the tower (vertically) and they will hear you just fine. Stop complaining because you expect panel mount strength from a 5watt hand-held and a two page user manual! Take an afternoon and study the instructions.

Robust
by Paul from State College PA USA 

Pros: sturdy
Cons: not really functional unless further accessorized.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Robust well built unit. Needs some extras to use in the cockpit: a quality push to talk switch to use with head set, and augmentation of the antenna. I used the provided sma(male) to bnc adaptor, and added some bnc cable and a sma(female) to bnc adaptor to extend the rubber duckie antenna to the back of the plane.

Good for the price
by Brian from Chico CA USA 

Pros: A lot of features
Cons: Transmission a little weak
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] It's amazing they can pack so much into a small radio. Receiving works great and is clear, except when setting on the seat next to you when the engine is running, too much interference. I got this as a second radio as I only have one radio and it only monitors one frequnecy. I can get ATIS now by holding the radio up to the mike and hearing it through the headset. The VOR works quite well, even from inside my house 4 miles away. Transmitting is a little weak, even on the field. Hooking to the ships antenna may help.

Great Radio Poor Software
by Kurt from Elizabeth CO USA 

Pros: Great Radio
Cons: Poor Software doesn't work. Radio not recognized by computer.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] The radios are excellent quality. The features are extensive and there is a huge amount of technology for the money.

There is a software program for programming the radios which I cant get to work on my computer. The computer wont recognize the radio so I cant import or export data to the radios. In this situation I cant remove the dozens of useless NYC Arinc frequencies that are programmed into the radio for some reason or organize the local frequencies Ive manually programmed into the radio. This has me quite unhappy with this portion of the radio operation as Ive spent hours trying to get this to work and there in NO available help or additional troubleshooting information on this that I can find. According to the software its supposed to work but it obviously doesn't.

solidly built
by James from North Andover MA USA 

Pros: Well-built and fair price
Cons: Not easy to use, default antenna has very limited range
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] It's a solidly-built unit, and looks like it'll hold up to extended use. Controls are less than intuitive, so be prepared to spend quality time with the manual. Reception with just the default antenna is poor; will likely need a ship's antenna connection to use in a real emergency, unless I happen to have an emergency directly over an airfield.

Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Instructions are clear and programming was fairly easy. Still waiting for battery to prompt me it's low -- haven't used it a lot and it's holding a charge for a month or so. Great price for a lot of bells and whistles -- which I won't use. I wanted a radio that had great reception and from some distance and am getting that.

by Chronis from Leroy MI USA 

Pros: size, back lit, emergency, flip flop
Cons: none
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Nice, solid product, delivers as promised. I like its compact size and simple to use if you take a moment to read instructions. Receiver quite strong, transmitter not yet tested from air but seems weak on ground. I could be wrong on that one. Buttons maybe little small for fat fingers. Nice back lit display. So far it seems as a great product. Time will show.

Really is waterproof!
by Gene from Antioch, IL 

Pros: Light, waterproof, great scanner.
Cons: You really need the manual to program it.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Just got back from Airventure, used this radio all week rain or shine. Took a few minutes with the manual to get the scanner set up for the OSH frequencies and it worked well as a scanner all week, it was outside on a table during one of the rain storms, and was clipped on my belt during other showers. The belt clip worked much better than I expected. The rechargable battery lasted about 20 hours, the AA batteries lasted even longer and are still going strong. But I never could figure out how to get the foam pad that comes with the AA case to fit.

Tried the VOR function on the way home, worked well, and cross checked with the panel mounts.

I'm not going to miss my old KX99 a bit. The Vertex is light, receives well, and in every respect exceeds my expectations!

Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] The key pad and features are a little hard to use. You have to use it a lot to get any confort with the key pad.  It may just have too many features to use as a back up Com.

by Rick S from New Fairfield CT USA 
Pros: Quality / Value for the money
Cons: none
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] I have had the opportunity to use the transceiver four times since it arrived and it has worked very well. I fly in both a J-3 and L-4 Cub and the transmission and reception has been very loud and clear using external antennas. The L-4 has an antenna problem so I am working with the noise reduction settings on the radio to attempt to reduce interference. Since the problem exists with other radios I've used, I hope the newer Vertex will help avoid an antenna replacement. Overall, a first class piece of equipment at a reasonable price.

You get what you pay for.
by Av8or from Waco, Tx. 

Pros: Very Well built, Long Battery Life, Reliable.
Cons: Squelch Adjustment could be easier.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] It's a great radio for what it is. a "HANDHELD" tranceiver. This is not a replacement for a good permanent mount VHF radio installed in your aircraft, but an excellent Backup. If your expectations are that you can replace your VHF receiver you're just plain IGNORANT. The radio works great for what it is designed for and with the Headset option integrated with my Aircrafts Intercom system. I appreciate the ability to use my Primary VHF radio for Flight Following etc, and have this one off tuned to CTAF/advisory frequencies. Plus the Peace of mind of having a backup radio, and the ability to tune a VOR frequency and validate my primary receiver(or even identify an intersection) is priceless!

Also reading the owner's manual goes a long way to understanding/using ANY piece of equipment REGARDLESS of AGE.

Be sure to read how to assemble the belt clip before assembly. Quickly programmable. Unable to set squelch so static is always in the background. Battery long lasting. VOR easy to use however no DME on VOR.

Exceeds the Mission Requirement
by Roger from Spokane WA USA 

Pros: Nice compact size. Knobs easy to use. Good Value
Cons: Larger screen would be nice
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] The radio is easy to use and offer many features potentially desired by certain users. Both Comm and NAV work as advertised and the receiption range is suprising good. I can pick up the local airport transmitters. that are about 5 miles line of sight. Seems to be a very well made unit. I have not tried many of the functions yet but the basics work well for me.

Hear you loud and clear
by Philipp from Wilen Switzerland 

Pros: compact, easy to use, stable, long accu lifetime
Cons: transmission range
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Easy to use, structurized menu. It's easy to get in touch with the key functions. The audio output is clear, even if the product is very compact. It is quite stable and I'm sure it would get over a fall out of the hand.
The accu is very strong. The negative point is: I believe, the output power is a bit weak. So sometimes other people don't hear my transmission even if we are at the same altitude and I may hear them.

I am completely amazed by it
by Sid from Charlotte, Nauth Carlina 

Pros: Every thing is as advertised
Cons: More capability that I'll ever use = waste
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Haven't used it except here at home. It has excellent sound from a/c departing CLT. One, however must remember my basis of comparison is from late '60's when the Corps got the dregs from all services except Nigeria. There's way more capability in it than I ever expect using. It seems complex and too full of play things but it will pay for it's self with one needed transmission. You young'uns will play with it with ease [while flying into a cloud of rocks]. Need to adapt it to '60's NAVY helmet.........HELP!

Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] I was surprised by the many features of the Vertex VXA - 300 Pilot III. I finally finished reading the manual which took me quite a while. I still do not know all the operations well enough to feel comfortable using them but I am sure as I use the unit, I will get better. The only disappointment, I have, and this is a minor one, is I would rather the Navigation portion was GPS instead of VOR, but I can use it like it is.

all you need for a backup
by Dangerous Dave from Dumont CO USA 

Pros: Bulletproof
Cons: 12 hr recharge time,make sure the battery is dead or you will ruin it
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] If you follow the instructions, it will do a lot.  Practice is the key to using it.   If all you want to do is dial in frequencies, it's simple.  The rest takes some educating.  If you got your pilots license you can operate it.  Don't expect to take it along and figure it out in the air, you didn't do it with your airplane and you wont do it with this radio.  It functions as advertised and for the price it cant be beat.

A good balance
by Latewings. from Auckland, NZ 

Pros: Solid, with valid clear aviation functions.
Cons: Takes a few minutes more concentration to master.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] I bought the Icom IC-A14 and the VXA-300 and will be taking the VXA-300 flying with me and using the A14 as a solid base station. The headset adaptor alone on the 300 is a great addition as a 172 cockpit can be rather noisy without the ear-muffs on. Having navigation functions, backlighting, and a very rugged feel, I'm sure if I needed it in the cockpit I'd be fine. I actually find it intuitive to use (having other yaesu products) and don't find it fiddly.

vertex VXA-300 Nav/Com Tranceiver
by kathy from Eureka MT USA 

Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] Might be a life-saver some day. Had fun with it while talking to airplanes while I was on the ground. Is hard to hear in an airplane with all the noise and removing just one ear-piece on your headset. Need to be able to plug it into the headset direct, and have your outside antenna installed.
{Reply from MyPilotStore:  The VXA-300 does come with a headset adapter to allow you to plug directly into your headset.}

This Product is Fantastic
by A Customer from Saint Cloud MN USA 

Pros: Durable, heavy-duty, qaulity construction.
Cons: None
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] In my opinion this product is of very high quality. It is a small tough and durable transceiver almost of military quality. I would most definitely recommend this product to any pilot looking for a quality "back-up" hand-held radio. It does have a lot of features, but you do not have to use all of them to be able to operate this really simple-to-operate transceiver.

External antenna, open squelch can be fixed - Radioman
by Radioman from Mesa, Arizona 

Pros: excellent radio
Cons: It is too easy, when turning it on, to accidentally depress the volume control and change the mode. You have to look at the display and ensure you are in the mode you want to be in.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] As a radioman, I have previously reviewed this transceiver and gave it five stars. I had noticed another reviewer had complained that when hooking it up to an external antenna on the aircraft, the squelch was always open (presumably with noise, broadcast AM radio, etc.). Having now used the radio for some time, I have to say that I have encountered the same problem around town, using an external antenna on my car -- some places one or more AM radio stations just force their way through the squelch. THERE IS AN EASY FIX, and reading the manual helps: All you have to do is press the function switch, then depress the volume control once. Roatate the channel selector until you get Menu Item #1 (SQL) and press the volume control again to make it blink. The default setting is 6, using the channel selector, I set it to 7. Then press the volume control again to make it "take" the setting, and press PTT briefly to exit the setting mode (it won't transmit). Haven't had a problem since, and it receives the control tower at Falcon Field from all over town just as before.

Review by a Radioman
by Don the frdmftr from Mesa Arizona 

Pros: Rugged, versatile, sensitive, great dynamic range, loud ... and more.
Cons: Given its purpose and its price, none.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] The Vertex Standard Pilot III Nav-Com transceiver is very similar in appearance to the Yaesu VX-170 2-meter FM amateur radio handie-talkie I've been using for several years as a ham radio operator. I knew that radio was good, and had high expectations for the Pilot III. The Pilot III not only met, but exceeded my expectations. I had been using a Radio Shack scanner to monitor the local tower frequency from various locations around town, and most of the time the tower was barely readable, aircraft on the ground couldn't be heard at all, and aircraft in the air came blasting in much too loud. By contrast, the tower is full quieting the Pilot III almost everywhere in town, I can usually hear the aircraft on the ground (weakly) and the aircraft in the air sound about the same as the tower. This indicates not only at least fifty percent greater sensitivity (.8-microvolts compared to 1.5-microvolts on the scanner) but also MUCH GREATER dynamic range. The audio quality and power output is also greatly improved, making even the foreign-accents heard from the local Part 141 school trainers understandable. I am very impressed, and I would give it more than five stars if more were available. (One recommendation to those whose reviews of this radio were less than sterling: It really helps to read the manual. Practicing with the various functions and procedures for five minutes makes all the difference in the world. It is an excellent and very versatile radio.)

Full of useful functionality, rugged, handy -- COM and NAV in on device !
by Guido Peterzelka from Luxembourg 

Pros: Full COM and NAV (VOR including CDI) functionalities, strong and clear, adjustable sound, rugged, handy
Cons: none
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] As I'm used to the excellent quality and functionality of YEASU's (USA: Vertex Standard) ham equipment, I ended up comparing between ICOM and VS devices for airband COM transceivers with NAV functionality. My decision for the VXA-300 Pilot III was based on trust, but also on a good presentation on the web, e.g. of technical specs and pictures and manuals. I've used the Pilot III a few times in flight for exercising the setting of VORs and as a NAVaid, but often on the ground to get the current ATIS. Will use it soon for air-to-air on the next fly-out, and hopefully never as backup for on-board COM-devices should they ever fail. I also got the Alkaline battery pack as backup- strongly recommended and easy to use, and at a very reasonable price.

Cons: Learn the basics before moving onto the more complicated functions.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] I like this radio. A little confusing on all the things it can do. So many things it can do. A teenager can master this radio quickly, but us older guys need a little more time. As long as you stay with the basics until you can move on to the other functions, it is a pretty nice set. Good volume and ease of operation. No regrets on this purchase.

Compact - Long lasting battery
by Joe B. from Northern CA 

Pros: Small, light
Cons: The only drawback to this radio is when it is connected to an external aircraft antenna. When flying over populated areas that have FM radio stations, the squelch is always open. Even with the ANL feature on and the squelch set at 8. It is very frustrating to have to turn your radio off unless you are near an airport.

Absolute Quality
by DENNIS from Kansas City MO USA 

Pros: Sensitivity is outstanding, From my home I not only hear pilots in the air but pilots and controllers on the ground as well. I can also pick up ATIS and one VOR station from home.
Cons: I'm trying hard, but can't think of any.
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] One of the best bang-for-the-buck purchases I have ever made. I innitially purchased a Grundig G6 Avaitor to familiarize myself with ATC terminology before becoming a student pilot. The G6 was junk, couldn't pick up anything unless parked at the airport. Replaced it with the Vertex VXA-300 and now I enjoy hours of listening from my home, and all around town. I turn it on and carry it all day, recharging after two full days of listening.

4 OUT OF 5 STARS

Pros: Price, size, durability
Cons: Somewhat complex to operate without regular use
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] The Pilot III has met my expectations: feature rich, reliable back-up, rugged, clear sounding, affordable. The only gripes I have are that it has so many features that it requires more regular usage to remember how to activate without the manual, and I thought I would be able to pick up more from the ground further from the airport.

Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] I purchased this transciever for my son-in-law, who is the owner of Sky Dive Houston, http://www.skydivehouston.com/.

He carries this transciever with him while out in the drop zone or anywhere around the property.

Pros: Small, feature-rich, well prices, long battery life, water resistant.
Cons: None
Review: [This review was originally posted for the predecessor, the Vertex VXA-300] The VXA-300 replaced my Icom which has served me well for over 15 years. The VXA-300 is an excellent replacement. More sensitive, longer battery live, an almost excessive list of features, waterproof and very rugged. In response to the posting of Lester from Gretna om March 31, 2008: It also took me some time to find out how to display the frequency of a preset (MR or BOOK) channel. This is actually very easy and described in the manual: push the Enter key (top-right key on the keypad) to switch between display modes.
