A PRA Exclusive Deal.  Only offered here through Memorial Day Weekend, if no one takes it I will put it up for sale on those other sites.

Yeasu FT-817 Plus Accessories

This is an older Yeasu FT-817 (Not an 817D) with several accessories. The radio is in excellent working order and puts out the full 5 watts on TX according to my MFJ Power Meter. The display is crisp and bright. Cosmetically it has a couple of scratches on the body and the grey power button as some gouging, however it functions normally and is just an appearance problem.

This is an all band all mode QRP radio. Comes with an internal battery (9.6V 1700mAh) that does not last for very long, but will operate the radio. It also operates on 13.8V DC power with DC Power cord Has an ACC port on the back for Cat control/Programing with RT Systems software/antenna tuner interface. SO-239 Antenna connector on the back and a BNC antenna connector on the front. It has been a good radio and I have been pleased with its performance as a QRP radio. I am selling to buy a different QRP radio.

I used it at Winter Field Day on JS8Call and made 4-5 contacts with just 5 watts and an inverted V Dipole on 40m. At my shack it has been connected to a TNC and my APRS Radio on 2m. (It has the typical Yeasu 6 pin mini Din data port on the back). This would be a good choice for the Crested Butte DX-pedition in August.
