Yaeus FT-897D FOR SALE

...owner is asking $800

We may have been a little light on hamfests this year, but the number of radios that have been circulating between us seems to be steady…

Our Secretary, K3WJC, was contacted by a gentleman who would like to sell his recently purchased, lightly used rig; Bill is acting as the go between for now. Up for grabs is a Yaesu FT897D, for which the owner is asking $800. As far as condition, pictures are below. If you are interested, please contact K3WJC (Bill Collins) @ colli020@gmail.com; you may also call his cell (304-676-9391), but please be aware that you will most likely get voice mail.
