Yaesu FT-818 Official Photos & Manual


Hot off the press is news that Yaesu have issued official photos and the operating manual for their new FT-818 which is set to replace the trusty and very popular FT-817.


Looking almost identical to it's predecessor the FT-818 has been criticised by many for not being different enough and not having more features but I think Yaesu have decided that if it wasn't broken there's no need to fix it!

The real reason for bringing out this new radio is probably down to the difficulty in sourcing components for the old model rather than any need to update the features on the radio.

Anyway whatever your feelings about this new radio you can see high resolution images and download the operating manual from the Yaesu website: CLICK HERE
