The Yaesu FT-200 / FT-250 is an SSB/CW transceiver that covers the pre-WARC amateur bands from 80m to 10m. An early hybrid transceiver mostly tubes with a solid state VFO, it provides around 180watts PEP, good stability and a very good receiver design even under today's crowded band conditions. The design first saw the light of day in the late 60's in a gray and silver case. It was also sold by the European importers as the Sommerkamp FT250 and by Henry Radio of Los Angeles California in the USA as the "Tempo One" (black and silver case). Accessories included an accompanying FP-200 AC power pack to provided necessary voltages from one transformer for 117 or 234 volt AC mains and front firing loudspeaker. An external VFO FV-200 and a DC-200 12 volt power unit was also available for mobile use. The Ft-200 was introduced in October of 1968 and sold into the 1970s.
