I also have the FT-60R. Took it in on a trade for a scanner. I have three (3) HT. I have the Vertex VX-150 (VHF ONLY), an Alinco DJ-V5 (brand new) and the FT-60R. I tend to use the FT-60R 95% of the time. It also gets great reports, for an HT!
Hi. I have 2 FT-60's and have worn almost all the keys on one blank because I carry and use it every day. I keep the other one for possible selling. A great little HT! Anyway, to all who own the FT-60 E-DC-5B mobile power adapter, if you hear any noise in the part that plugs into the lighter receptical, stop using it ASAP! The heat sink has broken loose from the PC board and will soon break the traces. Mine started to rattle and then within a week quit working. Not a really big job to re-solder the traces that were broken, but shouldn't have failed. Cheap adhesive used. I rate the FT-60-R a 5 / 5.
