Cleaning out some things, would rather see a fellow amsat-er enjoy this
radio on the Satellites

I have a Yaesu FT-847 which is an all mode (FM/CW/SSB) HF through 70cm
(less 220) Rig.    Its not had a lot of use since I got it, which means its
got little wear.

Asking $950 plus shipping to your QTH.    I have the original box for this
radio. There's a scratch on the top next to the speaker, but even so, it
looks nice, given this, its not museum quality, but it sure will get you on
the air if you like working the satellites and look nice in your station.

Also, it has RS-232 and is a late enough model that the RS-232 is
bi-directional, which means it works fine with SatPC32, where for instance,
you tune the receive dial on the radio, and SATPC then reads the downlink,
calculates doppler, then sets the uplink for you.  Works nicely, with 100w
on 6m and HF (plus Mode A on AO-7 = uplink on 2m down on 10M) and will
power mast mount preamps on 2m/70cm via the coax.

No Paypal - Cashiers Check or Money Order, then I'm glad to ship.   The
Radio Works - Selling As-Is because I'm not interested in being scammed and
have someone send me a carcass back....expecting a refund, sorry I even
have to say that...   For serious enquiries, I'm more than willing to
provide pictures.  (I don't think pictures go through the amsat-bb, I can
send pictures direct)

Here's the info from Yaesu's website about the radio:
