FT-897 O 
PERATING 
 ANUAL
The
FT-897
is a rugged, innovative multiband, multi-mode portable transceiver for the amateur radio MF/HF/VHF/UHF bands. Providing coverage of the 160-10 meter bands plus the 6 m, 2 m, and 70 cm bands, the
FT-897
in-cludes operation on the SSB, CW, AM, FM, and Digitalmodes, yielding the most comprehensive performance pack-age available for field operation.Designed for use from (1) an external DC power source,(2) internal battery (requires optional
FNB-78
Ni-MH bat-tery pack), or (3) AC power source (requires optional
FP-30
External AC Power Supply), the
FT-897
provides 100watts of power output from a 13.8-Volt external power sup- ply or AC operation. When using the optional
FNB-78
Ni-MH Battery Pack, the
FT-897
automatically switches to 20Watts (430 MHz:10W) of output power.The multi-function Liquid-Crystal Display includes at-tractive backlighting, which may be disabled for battery con-servation. The display includes bar-graph indication of power output, ALC voltage, SWR, and modulation level. Also in-clude are a number of operating status icons, as well as thefunction displays for the three operating function keys (A,B, and C).
NTRODUCTION 
Among the advanced features of the
FT-897
are manyincorporated only in large base-station transceivers. Theseinclude Dual VFOs; Split-Frequency operation; Digital Sig-nal Processing (Bandpass Filtering, Noise Reduction, Notch,and Microphone Equalizer); IF Shift; Clarifier (“R.I.T.”);IF Noise Blanker; AGC Fast/Slow/Auto/Off selection; RFGain and Squelch control; IPO (Intercept Point Optimiza-tion) and a receiver front-end Attenuator; AM Aircraft re-ception; AM and FM Broadcast reception; U.S. Weather Band reception; VOX; Built-in Electronic Keyer; Adjust-able CW Pitch; Automatic FM Repeater Shift (ARS); Built-in CTCSS Encoder/Decoders; ARTS™ (Auto-Range Tran-sponder System); Smart Search™ Automatic Memory Load-ing System; Spectrum Scope; 200 Memories plus HomeChannels and Band-limiting Memories; Alpha-NumericLabeling of Memories; Automatic Power-Off (APO) andTime-Out Timer (TOT) functions; Computer Interface ca- pability; and Cloning capability.We urge you to read this manual in its entirety, so as togain a full understanding of the amazing capability of theexciting new
FT-897
Transceiver.
