  1. Call it FT-817 MKIII!
    Seriously, take a 817 and put in recharchable AA batteries from a shop next door using the supplied battery pack and cut the green wire. Then capacity will be more than 2000mAh.
    TCXO is availible in China for $10 incl. delivery.
    The 5MHz Band is for free if TX is open.

    But nice to see that this nice typ of radio is still availible for the next years.

  2. Over here in N.A. it will be 130$ more than the 817,the new 818 will have 1 watt more,larger capacity batterry and better frequency stability. A lot of money but you also get a lot for your money in this radio ! it’s espescially well suited for portable operations in CW. Nice little “do it all” radio.
