For those who might use this set at a bedside with it's sleep timer, it very well might keep you awake UPDATE : After in use for a few years the LED backlight has become a bit less "intensive" bright, so this is not as much of a problem.

Its contrast while being adequate, could be better.

Not a problem with the lighting as the bright back light will not allow you to fall asleep in front of it..

The Yaesu FT-450 is an entry level amateur radio transceiver made by Yaesu.

It transmits on eleven amateur bands, from 160 meters through 6 meters.

Included near the bottom of this review are recommended PC software programs for the VR-5000.

(sold later in the USA as the CCR-708) receiver in 1992 that had a very similar concept to this VR-5000.

In addition to the front-end features the Yaesu FT-450 provides complete computer and accessories interface connections on the back panel.

The (10 pin) output jack provides band selection data, commonly used for the optional VL-1000 solid-state linear amplifier.

The AX-700 did NOT cover the shortwave / HF bands , 50 to 905 MHz only.

But in many ways its spectrum scope and other features are quite similar and the VR-5000 . NOTE : It uses good old incandescent panel lamps for the LCD backlight and of course by now most have burned out and are NOT easy to replace.

Buttons are of a hard plastic variety, so no rubber buttons are used.

From my own personal experiences with other Yaesu hand held radios (transceiver models VX-1R, VX-2R , VX-5R and VR-500 receiver), these sets have rounded "rubber" buttons and the silk screening of the letters/numbers actually have started to come off within days out of the box.

Very late samples paint have a more "sandy" cabinet feeling finish.
