    Selling my 857D. I bought it new about 8 months ago, or less. I had it in my mobile for a short time. It does have low hours. The unit operates as it should and is in great cosmetic condition. It has minor markings on each side from the mounting bracket.

    It comes with all original accessories. It is widebanded for 11 meter goodness. I removed the Molex plug and replaced it with Anderson Power Poles. When I did this, it disabled the low voltage wire. If you plan to operate portable, and that feature is important to you, you'll need to change it back. It's an easy fix.

    I installed the Collins 2.3 Hz SSB filter and Yaesu TCXO. Both of these options are OEM, not the Chinese junk clones.

    Rig will ship with: DC lead, mobile bracket, manual, remote separation kit and microphone.

    I'd sell it for less, but the SSB filter and TCXO would be removed.



    I'd take pictures, but isn't necessarily as it looks new, except for the tiny tidbit scratches on each side of the mounting holes.

    I do not own, buy or sell junk.

    CONUS shipping only.

    PayPal, USPS MO or local pickup

    $680 shipped

    Did you end up selling or off the market? Seemed like good price with the included options...thought someone would pounce on it. Anyway, good luck.

    EDIT: Didn't read the rules to know I wasn’t supposed to respond...

    I pulled the filter and TCXO out of it and selling those separately. Figured I'd have better luck selling the radio cheaper without. I'm kinda bummed out. My wife threw my box away. It had the separation kit, manual, bracket and stock mic in it.

    Well, I ended up finding the box today. It is now complete system. This was purchased last April. It still has well over 2 years on the warranty. Some say that Yaesu doesn't transfer the warranty, but some say they do. I suppose if something untoward happen, I could send it in for repair then ship it back. I'm lowering price to $660 shipped. I'm also gonna list it on eBay and couple other venues. If you don't want the SSB filter and TCXO, I'll ship it for $630

    That is a good price for that radio, if I did not already have one I would snatch yours up.

    Also a bad time of year to sell anything. Figured I'd take to our local hamfest next month, but it's rough also. So close after Christmas everyone is broke. I'm looking for the ham that wants to buy him/herself a gift.

    I've given myself so many presents this season that I'm sending myself gift receipts in the event my logical side (wife) demands some returns...:D ...
