Some European Yaesu dealers announced the price for the new Yeasu FT-991 HF/VHF/UHF all mode transceiver.
The suggested european price for Yaesu FT-991 is € 1425,00 (aprox 1775 USD).
Prices are subject to variations in europe due to different VAT.
Availability and delivery is foreseen for March 2015.
Note for the US market: this week the Yaesu FT-991 got its FCC approval.
I was hoping for about $1200. The $ 1800. is way out of my budget. Thanks Yaesu
That’s the suggested euro-price. It does not necessary mean that for US market will be the equivalent.
Wow, Is a lot more than I thought it would be, I will pass.
Street price is already $1700, not $1800. Look for additional price reductions after the initial flurry of “new” sales. I suspect prices will normalize around $1500-1600 after the first six months of sales.
Eve in my most beautiful dreams it would be less expensive than the FTDX-1200, as many thought. It’s portable, VHF, UHF and so on.
The FT-991 looks like an awesome little radio, but being a radio the size of the FT-450D, I just can’t imagine it having $1700 performance. It would have to perform at least as good as the FTDX-1200 to justify that hefty price tag, and I do not believe you can get that level of performance in a package that small, based on my personal experiences with a multitude of modern radios I’ve owned and operated since licensed. The ICOM IC-7100 is a much more reasonably priced radio for what the FT-991 offers. Sorry Yaesu, you got this one wrong…
HELLO,POSSIBLE CONNECTED THE MICRO CAMERA OPTIONAL TO FT-991 ?
The FT-991 is a very nice little radio. I was hoping for a price right around the 1200.00 mark to be competitive cost wise with the ic7100. Why so much Yaesu? Now to decide, do I hold out and wait for a price drop or just go get the ic7100? I really like the Yaesu better but I dont see an additional 600.00 in value or performance differance.
