60 Meter Mod. for Yaesu FT-857D?
--Hi, all. I own a Yaesu FT-857D that already has the 60 meter channels built in and was wondering how I can add the upcoming frequency of 5357? I think the change to the 60 meter band will come in March and I want to be ready.
--I emailed Yaesu yesterday regarding this and they have already given me a response. I (in a nutshell) asked them if there was an approved modification to get this new 60 meter frequency. The answer given was this: "Adam:
At this time Yaesu has not announced any plans to change the existing
60-meter feature on our radios.
Thank you for your interest in and support of Yaesu Amateur Radio products."
--I see a "MARS mod of the FT-857" on the mods.dk site, but it says nothing about whether or not the mod is compatible with the "D" model, which mine is. Also, the mod is dated June, 2003, and I bought this radio from the dealer about a year and a half ago. I was just needing from Yaesu, an "approved" mod to get this upcoming new frequency, but gave me an answer that didn't quite answer my question, lol. Thanks for any help!
