News is a fickle thing. Sometimes a lot comes and sometimes a little. I’ve been sent an email from Japan with limited information about a new radio with 0.3-56Mhz receive and with that transmit enabled in the amateur bands although I expect MARS/CAP to be possible a little further along the line shall we say. So below is the information I’ve got just now.
The Yaesu FT-891 is an amateur HF transceiver covering the 160 to 6 meter bands with 100 watts. It features a general coverage receiver tuning 30 kHz to 56 MHz. Modes include AM, USB, LSB and CW. Features include: attenuator, noise blanker, keyer, compact size, backlit LCD and backlit keys.
The FT-891 comes with: hand mic, mic clip and DC power cord. It requires 13.8 VDC at 23 Amps.
The radio is FCC Approved 5/4/2016
