Twenty years ago, I purchased a brand new Yaesu FT-847 Tranceiver. Its had almost no use during the last 2o years. Over the last twenty years, I drifted away from amateur radio, all the business travel, other responsibilities, etc... I find that the Yaesu FT-847 has a very excellent track record, and some amateurs are still trying to acquire them used these days because of their wide range of versatility, and their build quality. But, the down side is, the FT-847 is twenty years old. I can still probably get about $1000.00 for the FT-847. Financially, I can afford to buy a new rig, especially if I sell the FT-847, but I'm not willing to spend over about $1800 for a new digital base rig. I'm trying to decide whether to sell it, and buy something new, something that has digital capabilities, that's as close to compatible to the range of capabilities that the FT-847 has, or to add a new rig to the shack, keep the FT-847 for it's versatility and range of capabilites, even though it is only analog, and just use it as a backup to the new digital rig. If I acquire a new base station radio that's as close as possible to the Yaesu FT-847 with respect to it's wide range of capabilities within the analog realm, but the new one with digital capability, what would be your recommendation with respect to current new production brand, model number, etc...? Here are the specs on the Yaesu FT-847: Three radios in one -- HF, VHF/UHF and satellite. You get 100 watt output on HF and 6 Meters, plus 50 watts on both 2 Meters and 430 MHz bands.

The FT-847 is also 1200/9600 bps Packet ready. 10.2 x 3.4 x 10.6 inches. With MH-31B8 hand mic.
