Yaesu Radio Officially Changes Name
By WBØRUR, on the scene
BURBANK, California – In a move that has many amateur radio operators nodding their head in agreement, Yaesu Radio company officials are announcing an official corporate name change.
Company president Mike Lovington says it’s a move that is long overdue.
“Have you checked QRZ, eBay or other online ham radio forums recently? Most hams already spell it like that anyhow. It’s always spelled Y-E-A-S-U.”
Additionally, Yaesu/Yeasu executive say the company will soon start marketing name plates, so existing Yaesu owners can become Yeasu owners.
This nameplate mod (Yeasu part # 67-3158NP) will retail for $59.98 at most amateur radio retail stores.
