The 857D has almost all the features and performance of a standard size HF base rig, except tucked into a tiny form factor.The small display is hard to read for us old guys, but it can be remoted which is good.Very useable in a one-radio car or truck as a most-of-the-time mobile 144/440 FM repeater/simplex and still having decent access to HF when you are stopped or field. Full tone and duplex support for repeater access. Will do VHF/UHF FM satellite with some setup. I've had several QSO's comme
nt that the audio sounds very clean. Full digital data support for rtty/packet/psk.DSP noise/filter functions seem (to me) less effective than on newer, costlier base rigs, but hey, this guy is mobile. DSP filtering/gain of mike input for SSB/FM optimization seems fine.It's really made to use with a powered screwdriver antenna like the Yaesu ATAS and will automatically run the extend/retract motor to tune this antenna.

Always wanted this particular transceiver, and I couldn't be happier with it. The quality is remarkable and the price was well worth it.
