broke new ground with the introduction of the FT-817: the
worlds first HF/VHF/UHF self-contained battery-powered
Multi-mode Portable Transceiver. Providing up to five watts
of power output, the FT-817 is designed for operation on the
160-10 meter HF bands, plus the 6 meter, 2 meter, and 70 cm
bands. Whether your preferred operating mode is SSB, CW, AM,
FM, Packet, or SSB-based Digital modes like PSK31, the FT-817
is ready to join you on your next hiking, camping, or search-and-rescue
the 817 legacy is even better with the introduction of the
FT-817ND, which includes coverage of the U.S. 60-meter (5
MHz) band, and it also includes a 1400 mAh NiMH Battery pack
(FNB-85) and NC-72B Charger!
Compact HF/VHF/UHF Multimode Rig
Despite its incredibly small size (5.3" x 1.5" x
6.5"), the FT-817 delivers big performance! Its next-generagion
PA puts out five watts on all HF bands, plus the 50 MHz, 144
MHz, and 430 MHz bands, on all popular operating modes: USB/LSB/CW/AM/FM/Packet/PSK-31/RTTY.
Wide Receiver Frequency Coverage
Enjoy shortwave and FM broadcasts, public safety communications,
and airband calls thanks to the extended frequency coverage
of the FT-817, which includes reception on 100 kHz - 56 MHz,
76 - 108 MHz (W-FM only), 108 - 154 MHz, and 420 - 470 MHz.
Two Antenna Connectors for Ease of Installation
The front panel includes a convenient BNC connector for attachment
of a whip or VHF/UHF rubber flex antenna (supplied). The rear
panel includes a type M (SO-239) connector.
As shipped from the factory, the BNC jack is active on 50/144/430
MHz, while the M connector is active on HF. But
using the Menu, you can assign, for example, 50 and 144 MHz
to the rear panel, if your coaxial cables have matching plugs.
Receiver Enahncement Features
IF Shift For reduction of adjacent-frequency interference.
IF Noise Blanker For reduction of ignition and
other impulse-type noise. IPO (Intercept Point Optimization)
Bypasses RX Preamp on HF/50 MHz for improved performance
during strong-signal conditions. ATT (Front End Attenuator)
For more pleasant reception of very strong signals.
Outstanding CW Features
CW Semi Break-in, with T>R recovery delay programmable
from 10 ms ~ 2500 ms. At 10 ms setting, performance emulates
QSK operation. CW Reverse: provides BFO injection from
LSB-side, instead of default USB-side. CW Pitch Control:
adjusts TX offset and (identical) sidetone between 300 Hz
and 1000 Hz in 50 Hz steps; this allows precise spotting on
DX stations. Sidetone level is adjustable. Built-in
Electronic Keyer, with speed adjustable between 4 WPM and
60 WPM, and Weight (Dot:Dash Ratio) adjustable between 1:2.5
and 1:4.5. For emergency use, the Menu allows you to
set up the Microphones [UP] and [DWN] keys for generation
of Dots and Dashes on CW!

but would like a visual indication of activity while youre
away, activate the Spectrum Scope Monitor. The Spectrum Scope
Monitor allows you to watch activity ±5 channels from
the current operating frequency. The LCD illumination
color may be set to either Blue or Amber color, using the
Menu. Watch for low battery trouble using the Battery
Voltage Meter display selection. For ease of viewing
while outdoors, you can double the size of the frequency display
High Performance Collins® Mechanical Filter Options
An optional filter slot is provided in the FT-817, allowing
the owner to install one of two available Collins® Mechanical
Filters. For CW operation, choose the 7-pole YF-122C (500
Hz bandwidth), or for very natural-sounding SSB select the
10-pole YF-122S (2.3 kHz bandwidth).
Internal Battery Power
The FT-817 is the only rig in its class with internal battery
operation capability. Shipped from the factory with a battery
tray for 8 "AA" batteries, the FT-817 may also be
operated from the optional FNB-72 Ni-Cd battery pack. full
power output is available under battery power. Other manufacturers
make you carry around a heavy external power source. . .but
