I was at the Charleston Hamfest Saturday and found an old friend: My first ham radio, the FT-847, with my old desk mic and auto-tuner, was for sale at one of the tables there.
I sold this setup back last year. One of guys there, knowing I once owned an FT-847 pointed it out. I took a look at it and thought, “hey this is a good-looking 847” … then I looked closer and started seeing some familiar marks along the top. Then I spotted the LDG YT-847 tuner on the right, and the MD-100 mic. Yep, this was my old station.
I noticed the price they were asking was a good bit higher than I sold it for. Of course, at the end of the day, I saw the seller boxing it back up and carting it off without a sale.
