Yaesu FT-857D for only $10?

How would you like to add a Yaesu FT-857, all mode, 160 through 70cm rig to your mobile or home shack? It’s easy; you can either pick up the phone, call HRO and order one (and plunk down almost a kilobuck) OR — buy a $10 raffle ticket at the next HCRA meeting.

We are proudly announcing the latest HCRA *250* Raffle. The prize this time around is a brand new Yaesu FT-857D, HF/VHF/UHF transceiver. Here’s a brief rundown of this cool radio’s impressive features:

(Yaesu FT-857)


  • 160-2 meters +440
  • Electronic Keyer
  • 200 Alpha Memories
  • DSP-2 Board Built-in
  • 100 Watts HF Output
  • 50 Watts 2 Meter Output
  • 20 Watts 440 MHz Output
  • Spectrum Display

The *250* means only 250 tickets will be sold. Even if you purchase only one ticket your chances are much better than the lottery. Buy two tickets and double your chances, buy four and… I think you get the picture….

This is a great little rig that would look nice in any shack or vehicle. Tickets go on sale starting at our June 7th meeting. The drawing is scheduled for March 7, 2014 HCRA meeting. It could be earlier if we sell all the tickets. Included with the radio is the YSK-857 separation kit that makes it easy to mount the radio in almost any vehicle.

We appreciate the support you’ve given the club with the past raffles and look forward to giving away this great radio next March.

Tickets go on sale at the June 7th meeting!

Don’t forget to buy your ticket(s) early before they’re all gone!

’73 and good luck,
