Great power supply and agree about no meter lights, so added my own. Very simple. Looking for a new power supply can be a grueling process, with lot's of time spent comparing the pro's and con's of each one.

My decision to buy this one was based on reviews from various sources, including eham. I've had some issues in the past with switching power supplies, so I went old school. I consider this purchase as money well spent.

I'm happy with my purchase. Never a single problem.

Yaesu FT-857D Review

Its very quite too. No RFI. Top notch in my book. I have two of these and a few other brands also. Great product, last one you will ever buy.

This is my second FP A in 4 years. I bought it based on the good track record with my original one. It's a five in performance. The problem is the loud whine or 'siren' sound as the fan winds down. Sent the first one back to HRO and the second one they sent does the same thing. My 4 year old FPA does not do this. There is no mention of the fan whine in the instruction sheet but it is well documented in e Ham as well as U Tube.When you subscribe, you receive only messages for the product you have subscribed to.

Best on 20m. Grounding is critical. Recommend direct ground wire from antenna mount to nut that holds the seats down. Alligator clips work fine. I think my vehicle was not big enough. So far it performed excellently.

Also, do not tune when vehicle is moving, you have to fully stop, as written in the manual. This prevents damage to its gears and motor. As for signals, If I could hear the station, I could work it. I have had this over six months.

I bonded it to the trunk lid and then to the body of my car and get it to tune 6-meters thru meters. Most of my contacts are on meters, due to my commute times. This antenna complements my FT in my Camry very well. I also have the mounted a short distance from the antenna. My only complaint is that sometimes the antenna gets "lost" after I press tune I have assigned to the A soft key.

I have to use the mic up and down to manually tune. Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.When you subscribe, you receive only messages for the product you have subscribed to.

Humss strand

Time Owned: more than 12 months. I purchased this radio in spain about 12 years ago. When I heard they were going extinct I bought one along with the CW filter about 9 months ago. After I got the rig setup, I instantly loved it. For 9 months Ive used it on the desk as my main rig on a daily basis and chased a ton of SOTA stations, and taken it portable a couple times.

You can see where this is going. This was an outstanding radio, right up until the receive became intermittent. Bad relay s. Next time I would transmit, s7 or 8 signals instantly dropped to s1 or 2 or just plane gone. I did some googling and found out that this is such a common issue that the rig has a relay cleaning routine baked into the firmware.

You hold down the band up and band down buttons when you power up the rig and the relays chatter a bit and thats it. This routine would also clear the issue. Right up until the next time you transmit. You come back to receive and its just deaf. I think this is so disappointing because I really like this radio.

It does everything, it works great, and it is so portable, and it doesnt draw 2 amps setting there doing nothing. Its a great radio. Unfortunately Yaesu has obviously decided to, or perhaps had to, use tiny marginally good enough relays in order to get the rig down to the size they wanted. Either way, Im pretty sure the relays are just not good for the kind of use I put it through. Its obviously a known issue in this rig and the D or they wouldnt have the relay cleaning routine programmed into it.

SO, unfortunately, after 9 months of fun, its going back to Yaesu. Im confident they will fix it, and I am also confident that it will just do the same thing again in less than a year so I will with much disappointment sell it. Interestingly, a few years ago I owned a FTD, which I also really liked, and which also failed in less than a year.

In hind site its failure may well have also been a relay related issue. It too went back to yaesu, was repaired, and I gave it to a new ham. This is a tough radio to rate.

If not for the failure, I would have absolutely given it a 5. If the failure had just been a random fluke, well, that happens and I would still have given it a 4 or 5. However, since this is obviously a known issue, and the radio has been in production for so long with no resolution, I cant even say its average. It also doesnt do much for my confidence in any more yaesu purchases and other potential time bombs they have waiting and havent fixed.When you subscribe, you receive only messages for the product you have subscribed to.

The site will be something of which everyone involved can be proud to say they were a part. Toggle navigation. Forgot Password. Reviews Home. Time Owned: more than 12 months. Simply a Fantastic Radio!

Great for mobile and really has great reception on all bands. So many features to learn about. Great audio reports and have talked around the USA on 10m with easy with a Wilson mobile antenna! The receiver is excellent, and it is a very feature rich radio for the price.

Is this a top of the line I give it 5 stars because of the price, features, and performance. For me, the top two attributes of this radio are the fact that it puts out watts in such a small package along with its attractive price point. The radio is so compact that it is easily carried in a daypack along with a lithium battery and a resonant lightweight wire antenna.

The radio does have some deep menus that have been described in other reviews, but I was willing to overlook some of the minor cons in order to enjoy such a small, watt radio at a great price.

The FT fills a need for me and is a 5 star performer. I got this rig specifically for remote digital ops only.

Reviews Home. Time Owned: more than 12 months. It was especially useful portable with batteries, but I cannot bring myself to replace those, so expensive are they and heavy.

I had to replace the shaft encoder on the main tuning knob. No idea how it got damaged, but I would recommend the protective aftermarket side handles I have not got them yet because I now use it in the shack. It was also simple enough doing the repair. Yes really. After that S5 upward is about 3dB per S point. I use a DSO instead of a ballistic meter and it truly adds another dimension to operating.

I find the radio tiringly noisy and I do not enjoy the user interface. Like all such arrangements infrequent and sparse use means tedious relearning. I have modified the MH microphone to incorporate an RF speech compressor which does help keep the talk level up. The cheap socket preempts using other microphones which I find annoying.

I have yet to attempt to lock the LO to GPS which would be handy for microwave transverter operation. It is a great pity there are not lithium batteries available that are made to fit — that I know about. Overall, the multiband versatility, the RF power output of the rig and its potential and convenience for driving microwave transverters makes it a keeper for me. I would however really appreciate having the IC spectrum display……. I had bought this transceiver second hand for Euro USD as my portable transceiver.

I compared my ft, came out inwith my ft, came out inwith my ft, came out in and my ftA came outhere are the results. After almost 20 years, I would have expected more and better performance differences rather than repackaging mediocre performing designs.

Приобрёл Yaesu FT-857.

After listening to ft and ft, the have more knobs but same mediocre performance. I understand if you spend more money you would expect better performance and defend your choices, but it is what it is! First the complaints The noise blanker is worthless, causes distortion from adjacent signals.

DSP button is not bi-directional. The SWR foldback is so fast I can't use an autotuner without lowering power to 10 watts. The accessories are way, way over priced.

The manual is poorly written. Good mic audio requires a mic modification. Now for the good things. General coverage receive, lots of memories and computer control is very nice all rigs have this. It's sort of portible and battery powered.

To modify the mic only requires a hot needle and a screwdriver.The Yaesu FT is a little marvel. Crammed into the enclosure is an MF, HF, VHF and UHF transceiver with most of the modern bells and whistles that anyone could want, and which can supply watts on meters, 50 watts on 2 meters, and 20 watts on the MHz band. The engineers have built what seems to be intended as a mobile transceiver, suitable for installation in a vehicle, with a removable face plate which can be mounted separately from the electronics package.

I purchased the FT with a dual purpose in mind. First I need a compact transceiver which can fit into a little folding desk in our den, so that there is a radio I can use when I am not able to get out to the the big station in the second building in our facility.

I have stage IV pancreatic cancer, and frequently am very sick. So in the near term, the FT would provide a radio I could use conveniently, which would fit into a small space. Furthermore, I needed a radio which could be the basis for a very portable station for field use. The FT fills both requirements nicely, and is quite affordable, so it arrived during July from Gigaparts great ham radio store in Huntsville, Alabama and I have been learning all of the features of this compact wonder since it arrived.

One of the first things I did after it arrived was to remove the covers to see what Yaesu had done to cram all of this functionality into such a small enclosure, and the pictures below show how it is built. The basic frame is an aluminum casting, which makes a very solid mechanical backbone for the radio. The covers are made from steel, and everything fits well. From what I can see, the FT is built to survive and work through long-term heavy-duty use.

The top circuit board contains all of the low level electronics. Although there is no space left over, nothing seems crammed into the space at all. As an electronic engineer who designs boxes and circuit boards for a living, I can appreciate the wonderful engineering which went into this design. It all looks so straightforward as to be obvious, although I can tell that there is nothing obvious about it. This was the result of very diligent hard work. Nevertheless, their work has made a design which is logical, clean, and should be very reliable.

Notice that in the top left hand corner there are two Collins mechanical filters. These are optional, additional cost items. I have had radios before which used the Collins filters, and they have always proven to be excellent performers, so I ordered both filters at the same time I ordered the radio.

They work excellently, and provide the improved receive and transmit audio on SSB, and the narrow bandwidth without ringing on CW, just as I have come to expect from the Collins filters. Once again, the board looks full but very logical, with a very clean layout. The heat from the power transistors is coupled directly to the main casting, and the twin fans provide the air movement necessary to extract the heat from the unit. The fans run only when necessary, so the unit is quiet most of the time.

It is also a good value, as far as the performance-to-cost ratio is concerned. The performance is better than all but two of the HF radios I have ever owned, and those two were expensive, high-end systems. Reading the manual is absolutely required in order to get the maximum functionality out of the FT However, the controls are well-thought-out, and benefit from a couple of generations of small equipment with few controls.

The function selection and the menus allow everything to be controlled, and they have obviously thought through the usability of these.

After a few weeks of trying every feature, I can go directly to what I need without referring to the manuals any more. For anything this complex, that is high praise. For any real use, it cries out for an external speaker. I have plugged in high-quality external speakers, and the audio is as good as or better than any other ham radio I have used.

There is also plenty of audio power available. Driving an inefficient old acoustic suspension speaker is no problem at all.
