This radio was purchased new (from HRO) in November 2006. I'm mainly a CW guy so I added the Collins CW filter about 6 months later. The rig has never been
mobile and always located in an A/C smoke-free home. About a year and a half
after I bought the rig Yaesu announced the FT-450 and I bought one of those
because of the IF DSP and I've been using the 450 almost exclusively since
then. I had the 857D on 2 Meters and 440, but never used it much. Now I have
the urge to upgrade to the FT-950, so the XYL says something must go. As much as I hate to part with it, I'm offering my prestine condition FT-857D with CW filter, manual, DC cable, separation kit, and mic for $625 including shipping.
I will ship in the original box with the control head dissembled just as I received it from HRO. CONUS and PayPal only. If interested, please email me at
email@example.com and I'll be happy to send photos and my phone number to
assist further discussions.
