I have for sale a Yaesu FT897D HF/6m/2m/70cm in excellent condition. It is
a 2011 model and works fine. It comes with the mic, power cord, manual, and
box.  This radio does 100 watts on HF and 6m, 50 watts on 2m, and 20 watts
on 70cm. Would make a great rover or VHF contesting rig as it gives you the
3 most popular VHF/UHF contesting bands.

It also comes with 4 of the Yaesu FNB-78 batteries for the Yaesu FT897, as
well as the CD-24 and PA-26. If purchased new, each battery costs $140, the
CD-24 costs $130 and the PA-26 goes for $80 so this setup would cost $770
for just the batteries and charger.  The Yaesu charging setup allows you to
charge the batteries using 110 volts AC or 12 volts DC so you can charge
the batteries under all circumstances, and with 4 batteries you can always
some spares ready to go.  You can charge the batteries when they are
outside of the radio also. The radio puts out 20 watts on all bands when on
battery power.

This is a great rig with a built in keyer, TCXO, SWR meter, DSP, and many
other features. Does 100 watts on HF and 6, 50 watts on 2m, and 20 watts on

I am asking $900 shipped for the entire package, or make an offer. I would
sell the batteries and charger separate if you are interested in just
those. I can take paypal/check/MO.
