    My first HF rig - Had Clint Millet (VE6CMM) tune it to full factory specs, MARS mod it, added new final PA and a shiny new mic. While waiting for all this to get done, my wife got me a new DX3000 so it has sat basically unused for over two years now.

    Lots of really cool features on this rig, especially if you want to learn code. And audio VFO feedback for poor eyesight.

    Comes with All the software to program etc, a set of XCOMMS Digital-audio CAT cable setup. (Optical isolation) for a typical computer for all digi modes out there. Custom designed for Yaesu. New hand mic, desktop mic, new power connectors on cable with Anderson Power Poles.  I'll put all the software on disk, or USB key if you prefer.

    Like to get $625 for everything - the digi cables alone are over $120 to order.

    Last few pics were of my testing mobile to a contest station in Minnesota.

    ALSO included -matching MFJ 929 Auto Tuner (Not shown)

    Ameer, Yaesu does not make this radio anymore. I think you should keep it.

    I have 4 HF rigs now, and someone could definitely have a lot of fun with it.  I just do not use the silly thing.  Might set it up as a SOTA rig if there is no interest - but for now it's time for a home where it will be used regularly.  Especially anyone that's interested in digital.    But thanks for the  reply.
