New digital Yeasu Radio

During the last Tokyo Ham Fair, Yaesu presented a new line of digital ham radios.

The label placed on the glass case in front of the HT has "C4FM" and "FDMA" in English.

Vertex has been making and selling P25 commercial HTs for several years now. It's not such a stretch for them to come out with a dualband P25 radio under the Yaesu (amateur line) brand. Remember that they're now owned by Motorola.

There is also a new page on the Yeasu website titled "The Dawn of Digital Communications in the Amateur Radio World."

"2012 will be a historic year that sees Yaesu lead Amateur Radio into the modern era of Digital Communications."
