UPDATE 2016: I have tried ALOT of different model hand held ham radios, most with ALOT more features like aprs and wider receive/transmit capability and digital. I still believe for basic 2m/440 use this radio is the best, radio is not hard to learn to program and does not have a ton of different options that will require you to have the manual always close by just to operate it. One features that I wished this radio had but doesn't is dual receive, sometime but not always its kinda nice to monitor 2 channels at once , this radio doesn't offer that feature however to get a radio that does be prepared to pay almost double the price. Probably my second favorite hand held is the kenwood th-f6 and it has all the bells and whistles you could want in a radio, on rare occasion you can catch it on sale but still costs more than the ft-60r. One thing I have learned though about hand helds is since they are low transmit power (5w max) features like aprs are almost worthless unless you have lots of repeaters dedicated to aprs like in a large city, also wide receive radios sometimes open the door to intermod issues which can drive you nuts.. buy the ft 60r, im a BIG fan of it for sure ( and I generally prefer kenwood radios!)
First the physical qualities: It's built solidly! Its body is cast aluminum, not plastic. It's not waterproof, but it is water resistant. I've been out in the rain with it and never had an issue. It's also taken a few drops onto hard surfaces without a hitch. The battery pack fits in real tight and never wiggles out of place. BTW, I highly recommend getting the FBA-25 battery pack that takes six standard AA cells as a backup if the rechargeable pack (included) dies.
Programming the radio: This is a professional piece of equipment, and as such it is more complex to program than a regular walkie-talkie. As compact user interfaces go, this one's pretty good, but you'll get tired of programming lots of frequencies, so I recommend buying the USB programming cable and software.
Operating the radio: This unit transmits with 5W of power; pretty common for this type of device. It's very good at pulling in weak signals. Voice is clear and stable, even when range becomes an issue. I like that the squelch is an analog dial and not a pair of up/down buttons. It has a control lock feature that prevents accidental button presses from detuning the radio unintentionally. It also has a scanning feature that can scan either stored channels in memory, or run sequentially up the dial.
Overall its a great buy, for the beginner ham whether you need emergency responder features or not, its 2-3x the price of certain other supercheap handheld ham radios for good reason. There are also budget friendly upgrades available to make it even better for volunteer emergency response use but i have no regret in buying it over the cheapest options as it is.
