Yaesu FT-818

Time to play "Is it real or is it fake?" But, this time it is with a Japansese radio... a Yaesu FT-818? Looks like a photoshop job to me.



    Thats the third item from googling "FT-818".
    A blog from August 2010.

    The display is from the ICOM IC-7000 advertisement.

    I do wish there would be an updated FT-817 though.

  2. Hi all,
    The original message is from August 5 2010 by Roger the G3XBM.
    Would be nice to have a radio like this, inclusive the 70 MHz band and for a price like the FT-817.
    70 MHz because this band is open since Jan. 1 for radio-amateurs in the Netherlands and some other Country's.
