    I wish these various blog sites and YouTube uploaders would stop posting pictures of what THEY think the FT 818 looks like.....

    No one except Yaesu and the FCC has pictures of the FT 818......

    Pictures of the radio will remain confidential until August of this year.

    Until then, whatever pictures that do make it onto the 'net is Photoshopped and totally fake.

    Whatever other details other than what is already stated in the public FCC filings, is just pure speculation and rumor.

    Unless Yaesu decides to publish promotional material before that date.

    Found this photo on the internet of the 818 undergoing testing. Seems legit, right?

    Anyone know if the 897d is being replaced?

    Check the FCC equipment authorization grants every day and see if Yaesu files one for something with a similar description.

    If this question is no joke? It was replaced by the FT 991 / FT 991A
    I have an FT 897D and played with a 991. For me, "I would not trade my 897D for a 991A for FREE !"
