1FT-857D Operating Manual 
NTRODUCTION 
The
FT-857D
is a rugged, innovative multiband, multimode mobile/portable transceiver for the amateur radio MF/HF/VHF/UHF bands. Providing coverage of the 160-10 meter bands(include the 60 m band: USA version) plus the 6 m, 2 m, and 70 cm bands, the
FT-857D
includes operation on the SSB, CW, AM, FM, and Digital modes, yielding the most compre-hensive performance package available for mobile and field operation.Engineered for high performance, the
FT-857D
provides 100 watts power output on the 160through 6 meter bands, 50 watts power output on 2 meters, and 20 watts output on 70 centi-meters.The multi-function Liquid-Crystal Display includes attractive backlighting (32 colors avail-able!). The display includes bar-graph indication of power output, ALC voltage, SWR, modu-lation level, and/or signal strength. Also included are a number of operating status icons, aswell as the function displays for the three operating function keys([
A
],[
B
], and[
C
]).Among the advanced features of the
FT-857D
are many incorporated only in large base-station transceivers. These include Dual VFOs; Split-Frequency operation; Digital SignalProcessing (Bandpass Filtering, Noise Reduction, Auto-Notch, and Microphone Equalizer);IF Shift; Clarifier (“R.I.T.”); IF Noise Blanker; AGC Fast/Slow/Auto/Off selection; RF Gainand Squelch control; IPO (Intercept Point Optimization) and a receiver front-end Attenua-tor; AM Aircraft reception; AM and FM Broadcast reception; U.S. Weather Band reception;VOX; Built-in Electronic Keyer with Memories and a Beacon mode; Adjustable CW Pitch;Automatic FM Repeater Shift (ARS); Built-in CTCSS Encoder/Decoders; ARTS™ (Auto-Range Transponder System); Smart Search™ Automatic Memory Loading System; Spec-trum Scope; 200 Memories plus Home Channels and Band-limiting Memories; Alpha-Nu-meric Labeling of Memories; Automatic Power-Off (APO) and Time-Out Timer (TOT) func-tions; Computer Interface capability; and Cloning capability.We urge you to read this manual in its entirety, so as to gain a full understanding of theamazing capability of the exciting new
FT-857D
Transceiver.
