Any ham radio that scans, whether FT-60 or Baofengs, in my opinion, are very poor scanners. With newer Public Safety communications, a lot of them are digital and trunking systems. Ham radios do not do tracking, and very few can do digital. You listening will be very limited

Yaesu FT-60R. One of the selling points of this model, along with many other Yaesu portables, is the wide RX range. The FT-60R receives from 108 MHz up to 999.99 MHz, with some gaps in between.

I turned off the repeater shift for 146.520 so when I press the ptt, it doesn't change the frequency but I still see a small T on the screen. So I am thinking the tone is still on. Don't I have to disable the tone as well in order to transmit/receive on the same (simplex) frequency The Yaesu FT-65R is kind of an odd bird, blending some of the inexpensive Chinese radios with the high-end of the Japanese radios. As hard as it is, the radio needs to be judged on its own. Sure, comparing the Yaesu FT-60R vs FT-65R shows that the 65R is far less of a radio, but it is far more of a radio than radios like the Baofengs
With the Yaesu FT 60R already doing so well, it would be easy to assume that 65R is an upgrade on the predecessor; maybe, this is Yaesu cashing in on the success of the FT 60R.. But what this Yaesu FT 65R review shows is that the gadget is not an upgrade. Some functions and features have been removed which accounts for the cheaper cost Some FT-60R owners have experienced - usually when using aftermarket audio accessories - the plug can be partially yanked out without realizing it - causing accidental transmissions.

The 950 really shines over the older yaesu DSP technology on the 857/897 which is over ten years old anyways. This control allows one to dial up or down the bandwidth.
