The Yaesu brand is well known among ham radio aficionados and is synonymous with premium quality ham radios. From stationary multi-feature communications equipment to portable devices, we have led the ham radio market for nearly half a century. Communicating through radio waves with people all over the world is what ham radio is all about and what keeps many people hooked. Finding that distant but recognizable signal buried in a sea of noise is the type of enjoyment of discovery unattainable from sending an instant e-mail overseas through the Internet.
Since successfully developing the highly stable SSB generator and balanced modulator back in 1957, we have been a part of HF SSB (Single Side Band) history. We also subsequently developed independently the ultra narrow IF crystal filter, a breakthrough that paved the way to commercialization of SSB communications. These breakthroughs in basic research not only demonstrated our technological prowess to the world, but was also instrumental in diffusing the concept of SSB communications in the HF band, the current standard, throughout the world. The YAESU brand has consistently represented the best in communications equipment to the world's Top DX'ers for almost half a century.
