A great compact do it all Radio.
This my second FT857D and I love it.<br>This is a do it all radio. The only Frequency not available as far as I can tell is 220. It can be easily modified to Mars and Cap Freq.I will be selling both my Icom IC 718 and Yaesu FT7800 because I now have one radio that fills all of my needs.

Awesome radio. Great performance from a small package.
This is an awesome radio. I recently received my General ticket and was looking for a rig that would handle all bands and modes. This radio does it all. I couldn't be happier with the performance of this unit.

Great multipurpose unit, performances like a larger radio at half the cost
I bought this radio to use as a base/mobile unit that combines the capabilities of multiple radios into a small efficient unit. While I will admit, that in the month or so that I've had it, there are many aspects of its use that I have yet to explore. However, the first time I hooked it up to a G5RV, I made a contact 600 miles away and not from a direction that the antenna was oriented for. The separation kit allows the head unit to be installed within reach, while keeping the bulk of the radio in an area out of sight.
