Just wanted to let everyone know that our Search and Rescue Team (Search and Rescue of Central Florida) purchased 14 new Yaesu FT1DR for our ICS Command staff. All the command staff are amateur radio operators. We have been looking for a new radio system for a while and were torn between public safety or amateur radio. Based on this radio being able to transmit gps, aprs and digital voice, we went with it. The digital voice option also allows us more privacy from the media. I havent had a chance to play with it yet but as soon as I do I will update.
