For the past couple years, I've been using a Yaesu FT-991 as my primary ham mobile. It's a great radio, but it's somewhat less than ideal as a mobile. It only has one VFO, most of its features are understandably oriented for HF use, and it's enormous.
I recently decided to change things up. Yaesu's FTM-400XDR was the top choice on my list. They're also about to release their new FTM-300. But from the limited details available, it's not a very compelling radio. It allows digital mode operation on both VFOs which isn't particularly important to me, but the display is much smaller and not a touch interface. Sadly, the FTM0-400 has skyrocketed in price for no apparent reason. It used to be $399 all day long but when I ordered mine, it was $480 "on sale." The new higher price made me briefly consider Kenwood's D710 as some of our members are using that. In the end, I like the Yaesu better. The UI is much more elegant. Yaesu's digital modes are more advanced, in my opinion, if you have people to use them with. Which I do.
Ordered it at the end of April, yarded my FT-991 and TYT TH-9000D out, and made a new face plate for my radio console.
I opted to make the main unit accessible through the console since the mic plugs into it, not the control head. Also programming can be done via SD card so I wanted access to the card slot without taking anything apart.
Overall I'm happy with it. The UI is very similar to my 991's but just different enough that it takes some getting used to. My only gripe is the controller bracket. For $500 it should come with something much better. It lacks rigidity and isn't adjustable. I ended up bending it to the angle I wanted it. I'll be making something better at some point.
