Finally, details surfaced about the Yaesu FT-817 replacement. We know it’s still a superheterodyne and covers 0.1 to 470MHz, but not much else. probably just a refresh of the FT-817 because some parts went obsolete.
I guess ETA will be early 2019.
I’m hoping for LiPo internal battery, a large screen and IF-DSP, at least.
