Measuring just 7.9" x 3.2" x 9.1" (without knobs), the FT-897 is unmatched in performance versus size. With the optional FC-30 Automatic Antenna Tuner installed, the convenient carrying handle of the FT-897 lets you easily transport your HF/VHF/UHF station to a portable location and get on the air instantly.
Innovative FC-30 (optional) Automatic Antenna Tuner:
Adding less than 2" to the total width of the FT- 897 assembly, the optional FC-30 is a high-speed, relay-controlled Automatic Antenna Tuner utilizing a combination of sixteen capacitors and nine low- loss coils to reduce SWR as presented to the FT- 897 feedpoint. Impedances of 17 to 150 Ohms may be tuned by the FC-30 on HF (25 to 100 Ohms on 50 MHz), and the lightning-fast tuning ensures that you won't miss out on the DX. (optional) TC-30 Automatic Antenna Tuner
Big-Radio Tuning Dial and Ergonomics
in Ultra"Compact Transceiver:
Ease of operation of the FT-897 is enhanced by the large-diameter (1.8") Main Tuning Dial,similar in size to the tuning knob of a large base- station transceiver.
Selectable tuning steps of 2 kHz/4 kHz per revolution ensure that fine tuning is always available, while allowing easy navigation around your favorite bands.
Easy Receiver Offset Tuning (Clarifier):
The convenient "Clarifier" (R.I.T.) knob, located at the bottom right-hand corner of the front panel, allows offset of the receiver frequency from the transmitter frequency, to follow a drifting station or to tune around a DX pile-up. But if you want a larger knob for offset tuning, you may use the Menu system to assign the Clarifier function either to the Selector knob, or the Main Tuning Dial.
Easy-to-Use "Scrolling Front Panel" Keys:
The compactness of the FT-897 is made possible by the easy-to-use "multi-function keys," which allow adjustment of a number of transceiver operating functions during operation. Pressing the [F] key allows selection of the operating function row, using the Selector knob, and you may then press the [A], [B], or [C] switch, as needed, to change the setting. What's more, a number of these keys provide instant "hot key" switching to a related Menu item, for "set and forget" configuration adjustment.
Rugged, High-Output Power Amplifier with Efficient Heat Sink:
Achieving 100 Watts of power output from such a compact package is a difficult mechanical and electrical engineering task.
2SK2975S On HF, push-pull 2SK5125 MOSFETs driven by push-pull provide the 100-Watt power capability, while on VHF maximum efficiency during battery operation is yielded by 2SC3102 bipolar PA transistors.
The rugged aluminum die-cast chassis provides a solid foundation for the heat sink for the power amplifier, with a total of almost 40 cubic inches of heat sink surface area available. With its quiet, thermostatically-controlled twin cooling fans, the FT-897 will stand up to the rigors of DX-pedition or home contest use, with dissipation capability to spare.

Take the QRP Challenge
Ideal for low-power operation under battery power, the FT-897 is easily adjusted down to the 5-Watt limit for "QRP" operation, and you'll enjoy the thrill of having those rare DX stations come back to your "flea power" portable station.
Legendary YAESU Receiver Design
When you've traveled a great distance to find that ultimate quiet operating location, you want a great receiver so as to take advantage of itIYaesu's top receiver design team crafted the front end of the FT-897, accounting for the dramatic differences between low bands like 160 meters and the 430 MHz microwave band. Wide dynamic range and low noise low noise figure are the product of the advanced preamplifier stage with negative feedback for stability, and the GaAs balanced mixer design, with careful gain distribution from the RF through the audio stages.
Flexibility in strong-signal operation is also provided by the RF Gain control, input attenuator, input preamplifier bypass capability (IPO), and Slow/Fast/Off AGC selections.
High-Performance PLL Design
The quiet, fast-acting local oscillator system of the FT-897 borrows extensively from the renowned FT-847, using a Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) to achieve fast lock times and silky-smooth tuning in 10 Hz steps. The excellent carrier-to-noise ratio helps preserve spurious-free dynamic range in a crowded band, and the smooth tuning leaves you with the feeling you're using an analog VFO.
