Mobile Allmode Transceiver HF/VHF/UHF
The FT-857D now includes a DSP unit and separation kit YSK-857, too!
The FT-857, the world's smallest HF/VHF/UHF mobile transceiver, provides base station-type performance from an ultra-compact package that's ideal for mobile or external battery portable work. Wide frequency coverage, outstandig receiver performance, and the convenience of optional remote-head operation make the FT-857 the expert's choice for high-performance mobile operation!
Ultra Compact Design
Measuring just 6.1" x 2" x 9.2" (155 x 52 x 233 mm), the FT-857 is the world's smallest full-power HF/VHF/UHF multimode transceiver! Its rugged case design is a masterpiece of ergonomic design, with often-used switches and knobs conveniently positioned for easy access.
High-Performance Receiver Design
Building on the acclaimed performance of the FT-1000D, Mark-V FT-1000MP, and FT-897, Yaesu's engineers have crafted the FT-857's front end for a very low noise floor, along with wide dynamic range. Utilizing an up-conversion architecture for HF with a first IF of 68.33 MHz, the FT-857 features a double-conversion superheterodyne system (triple conversion on FM), with the 2nd IF at 10.7 MHz. Extensive bandpass filtering in the front end, along with careful device selection and gain distribution, yield a receiver system ready for the strong-signal challenges of today's crowded bands!
Wide Frequency Coverage
Providing transmitter coverage of the HF, 50 MHz, 144 MHz, and 430 MHz Amateur bands, the FT-857 also includes receive coverage on 100 kHz to 56 MHz, 76 to 108 MHz, 118-164 MHz, and 420-470 MHz. Enjoy the excitement of public safety monitoring, along with weather broadcasts, AM and FM broadcasts, aviation communications, as well as the action on the Ham bands!
Versatile Memory System
The FT-857 provides up to 200 main memory channels, each of which may be named with an Alpha-Numeric label of up to eight characters. These 200 Memories may be separated into as many as 10 Memory Groups of 20 Memories each. For added convenience, you also get a Quick Memory and a Home Channel on each band, plus ten pairs of band-limit memories, to let you restrict operation to a sub-band, if you like.
Digital Signal Processing (option)
For superior interference rejection and transmitter talk power, the FT-857's optional DSP circuitry enhances both sides of the communications circuit. The FT-857's DSP Unit features a 24-bit high-tech D/A chip for signal processing. Included are Bandpass Filter, Auto-Notch, and Noise Reduction filters, along with a Microphone Equalizer.

More accessories for FT-857
Due to the amount of available accessories for the FT-857 and other Yaesu mobile radios, we have put all these product on a separate Yaesu Accessories Page.
Carry your radio on planes, trains, or on your back.
Holds all mobile radios built in the last 10 years, and specifically designed with the newer HF mini mobiles in mind such as the FT-100 or the IC-706. Also works beautifully carrying the FT-817 along with the Z-11 antenna tuner.
Overall dimensions of the pack: 17" H x 8" W x 3" D.
- Inside dimensions of upper radio compartment: 11½" H x 7½" W x 2.5" D.
- Inside dimensions of the lower power supply compartment: 4½" H x 7½"W x 2½"D
*These are "soft" dimensions. The WorldPack is not a hard box, but is constructed of soft padded fabric. Therefore, if your radio is slightly larger in one dimension or another, the pack can still fit quite well.
There is a clever "elevator" in the upper portion of the pack, that can adjust the height of the radio in your pack. This allows you to raise or lower your radio within the pack, or accommodate shorter radios securely within the pack.
Heavy duty, weather resistant nylon exterior, padded throughout to protect delicate electronic instruments. Contoured shoulder straps keep you cool with their mesh construction. Multiple tie-down points to attach whatever you need to bring along. Shoulder straps have webbing loops to attach your handheld radio in an upright position, and easy to reach by your chest. Higher on the shoulder strap is a point to attach your GPS receiver, so that the antenna gets a full sky view to avoid receiver drop-outs.
Separate lower compartment for power supply with passthrough holes for wiring. To keep your signal clear on those windy mountaintops, we've thrown in a fleece microphone cover to virtually eliminate wind-noise in your mic. Exterior pockets, straps and sleeves for multiple antenna elements with a little extra room for your favorite fishing rod.
Looking down from the top, alongside the right hand side of the pack, you can see that the antenna is held securely in place by a pocket at the bottom, and two Velcro style tie-downs along the body of the pack. The left hand side can carry the extra antennas with an identical pocket at the bottom and an adjustable nylon sleeve running the height of the pack.
The contoured shoulder straps are comfortable and cool for long wear. Webbing cross straps give you a place to attach your handheld, GPS, or other handheld device in antenna-up position. There are other nice little details like the D-ring on the strap adjustment to keep dangling loose strap ends from tickling your arm as you maneuver.

Frequency Extension for RadiosPlease note:
All radios supplied by WiMo normally cover only the amateur bands (transmit wise).
The frequency extension of a radio (TX open) is done on explicit request by the customer.
Amateur Radio transceivers are usually not specified for use outside the amateur bands. In some cases the radio and especially the final amplifier or output filters can be damaged when transmitting outside the amateur bands. These damages are not covered by any warranty.
The manufacturer warranty might be voided in some cases as well.
