Hello, I am having a bit of a clear out and have the following items for sale:

Yaesu VX7R (Black) Good Condition with original tri-band antenna, Yaesu charger and a case for putting other batteries in. Unmodded. Super 6m/2m/70cm handheld. Hardly used the TX section, mainly used for listening.

 

Yaesu FT 450 (Non-inbuilt tuner variant). Good condition, Wide TX'd by W&S from whom I purchased the unit new. Has had very little use due. Fist microphone and 12V lead included.

 

Yaesu FT 857 - For spares only  - not working! I purchased the unit new, sold it, and then purchased it back again with a view of doing something with it. The chap I sold it to removed the top PCB (I suspect he that did a wide TX mod that went horribly wrong and was rather embarrassed). I have been able to test the front control panel (Turns on an illuminates - no visible faults on LCD screen). Has fist microphone and 12V lead. I have no idea what else may or may not work on it, an is being sold for parts.

I am open to offers on any of the above. Thank you for reading.

John

Hi. Possibly interested in the VX7R to get started on the 6m band.

What sort of price are we talking?

Cheers

Hi - Looking around they normally go for £180 plus, however, I think that £135 would be a keen price - what do you think? John.

Hi John

Yes, I can do £135, and pay for postage and packing, if you can post/courier it (I'm not in Essex).

I can arrange payment any method that suits you.

Arrived promptly, and well packaged.

A pleasure doing business with John G7JYR.

PS. The cat is really enjoying the big box and all the packaging material. He has made a den of it.

UPDATE: The price for the FT 450 is £370.00 which is an absolute steal! The FT 857 Head / Control Unit plus spare parts is £100 (I saw a faulty one selling for £140 on eBay recently, this one has no faults on the LCD screen. Both units are priced below market value as I do not want the hassle of selling them on eBay and would rather they went to an enthusiast. Please note these items are collection only. Thank you for reading - John.
