Yaesu FT-817/818 CW filter
« on: July 19, 2020, 1222 UTC »
It seems to be quite a challenge to find CW filters for the FT-817's. I have noticed that the price of filters in general have gone up quite a bit. I just ordered a new 818 and am trying to find a 300/500 filter. If anyone knows where I might find one,please give me a heads up. Thanks

Hello OM. Every Yaesu dealer will be able to send you a CW filter. In Germany like Wimo.de or lutz-electronics.ch or classicinternational.eu
for a "YF-122C/CN"  You won't find anyone in China - they only sell SSB filters ...

Some Filters has to be ordered..  Some companies that made filters has gone out of business due to the fact that the new radios comes equipped standard with DSP Technology that makes discreet filters obsolete.

You can double the cost of a new - cheap radio by adding a bank of filters.

Its cheaper to buy a better radio that already has filtering built in..
