More InformationThe FT-847 is an all mode (SSB, AM, FM, AFSK), all band (160M through 70cm) transceiver. This one does not appear to transmit on 450mHz, though, and I never looked to see why that is. All other bands and modes are fine. I used this in my office to work 2M and 6M FM, which was a waste of its capabilities. It deserves to be where it will be more fully utilized. There is some tape residue on the top but I don't believe there are any actual scratches. What appears to be a crack on the display screen in the photo was a cat hair. I'll retake that photo when time permits. I don't have it powered up at the moment, but it can be dragged into the shack for a demo any time.
Having just picked up an IC-7300, I now officially have too many radios. Given the apparent problem on UHF, I'll offer it at what I believe to be a low price for a 160M through 2M transceiver - $500 picked up in Wadsworth. Includes the original hand mike from Yaesu and a power cable but no box or manual.
