I have a (2014 model) really nice condition FT-897D which I would like to offer in exchange for an FT-920AF + SP-8 external speaker(2nd choice) or an FT-1000MP (1st choice).
Now this radio comes boxed with an uncut power lead, a very clean original manual, the original microphone and it’s original box (which is of some importance to some folks!!)
It also has the added benefit of an LDG AT-897Plus atu and the FP-30 power supply making it into a base-station multi-mode transceiver!
Oh and it’s from a smoke-free home and had no cats, dogs, rabbits, gerbils, rhesus monkeys, cows or donkeys laying atop of it!
As I haven’t the foggiest how to add pics on here I will be happy to send them to anyone interested!
I’m also happy to travel to you so you can try-before-you-buy, alternatively come and see it in play before you take it away!
