Yaesu FT-710 AESS, why you won’t be purchasing one anytime soon! To be released maybe in September.

So with Yaesu Japan releasing the news of the FT-710 for the Japaneses market there was some confusion to what the U.S. version would be. The next day Yaesu USA released their info on the U.S. version. In this video I try to clear up some of the confusion and show the little we know for sure is included in this new radio.
