Yaesu FT-902DM HF Transceiver
When this was in production it was described as “Yaesu’s Flagship Transceiver” - it certainly is a classic from the time HF transceivers all had valve PA stages.
Covers 160m to 10m including the WARC bands
CW SSB AM FM & FSK modes
TUNE control with auto timeout
Still sounds good today - tested and 100+ watts out on 20m
There is NO user manual - this is easily available as a download - take a look on the " fox tango “ website for a full guide to owning and using the transceiver.
Are there any faults ? Yes some of the controls and switches are a bit noisy but it is 30 years old and the loudspeaker sounded horrible, this has now been replaced and the audio is back as it should be, when you look where the speaker is located at the back corner on the underside of the radio you can then understand why the speaker has to work a bit harder than normal - but the transceiver is packed so tight with electronics there is nowhere else to put it !
So you are buying a classic the FT-902DM - yes it needs a bit of time with some switch cleaner, if you are a perfectionist maybe a run over the alignment would bring out the best, but it is 30 years old.
MOST IMPORTANT - this is a valve PA transceiver - tuned correctly the PA’s last for years - do it the wrong way and you can destroy them in minutes - this is one reason I have specified no returns. You are welcome to come and test it on the antennas I have here before the end of sale.
Due to the age of this unit no returns will be accepted.
