Yaesu FT-817ND Amateur Radio | HF/VHF/UHF Mobile Transceiver
This FT-817ND is boxed and in great condition as it has been well looked after. The radio is unmodified and gives 4w on all transmittable bands (40m is only 7 - 7.1Mhz although RX is up to 7.2Mhz).
All functions are tested and the only issue found is that the battery doesn't appear to hold a good charge anymore (however replacements can be easily purchased for around £20). The radio works perfectly on 12v DC input.
The Yaesu FT-817ND is the world’s first self-contained, battery-powered, multi-mode portable transceiver covering the HF, VHF, and UHF bands,For more than four decades, Yaesu has been a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance multi-mode base station and mobile transceivers, as well as FM hand held.
Yaesu broke ground with the introduction of the FT-817. Providing up to five watts of power output, the FT-817 is designed for operation on the 160-10 meter HF bands, plus the 6 meter, 2 meter, and 70 cm bands. Whether your preferred operating mode is SSB, CW, AM, FM, Packet, or SSB-based Digital modes like PSK31, the FT-817 is ready to join you on your next hiking, camping, or search-and-rescue adventure!
Now the 817 legacy is even better with the introduction of the FT-817ND, which includes coverage of the U.S. 60-meter (5 MHz) band, and it also includes a 1400 mah NiMH Battery pack (FNB-85) and NC-72B Charger. See the AT range of antennas in HF Mobile Antennas, these have been specially designed for single band use with the FT-817.
