Yaesu FT-450 HF


My first HF rig – Had Clint Millet (VE6CMM) tune it to full factory specs, MARS mod it, added new final PA and a shiny new mic. While waiting for all this to get done, my wife got me a new DX3000 so it has sat basically unused for over 2 years now.

Lots of really cool features on this rig, especially if you want to learn code. And audio VFO feedback for poor eyesight.

Comes with All the software to program etc, a set of XCOMMS Digital-audio CAT cable setup. (Optical isolation) for a typical computer for all digi modes out there. Custom designed for Yaesu.  New hand mic, desktop mic, new power connectors on cable with Anderson Power Poles. I’ll put all the software on disk, or USB key if you prefer.

Like to get $575 for everything – the digi cables alone are over $120 to order.

If you need a MFJ 929 Tuner, I have one for it included for an additional $75.00 (No din cable, my dog literally “remodeled” it when I was not looking.) Autotuner works in Manual Tune start mode perfectly. The cables are still available to buy if you need one.


Last time I tested it mobile in my truck, Calgary to MN for a contest station.  Pics of my mobile setup on a 20m hamstick.
