Compact keyboard for control of the FT-817 and direct frequency entry.

 Best FT-817(D) battery pack available.

Why?  Because it packs a whopping

2500 mAh, has current protection on

BOTH positive and negative leads, has

thermal protection, and allows FAST 

Charging with the batteries in the radio.

To further protect your radio, the battery

is automatically disconnected from the 

FT-817(D) during charging.  All fuses are 

Self-Resetting!  Get great operating 

performance and protection for your 

FT-817(D) with the OPP-817.
 2700 mAh

An excellent FAST Charger for the OPP-817

specifically designed by W4RT Electronics to

minimize the charge time while optimizinge the 

charge capacity.  Takes a bit over 2 hours to 

charge a fully discharged OPP-817.  Can be 

use to charge other packs as well.

 The One Board Filter (OBF) affords you the opportunity to have both the Collins CW and SSB mechanical filters available in your FT-817 or FT-817ND together! No one else offers this option.  You can install yourself or have W4RT Electronics do so for you.

This filter is a must for any serious

CW operator.  Same Collins Mechanical

Filter used by Yaesu, but much more

affordable!  Simple plug-in installation.

The dynamically-adaptive neural-network technology

to achieve noise and tone reduction is remarkably more impressive than other noise reduction technologies available for the FT-817(ND).  K4YHQ said "... the static, the hash, the white noise just gone, all gone, as if by magic."  No magic, just great engineering.  Available for

DIY or W4RT Electronics installation.

Increases the average TALK POWER

by about 5 dB.  Typical report of users

is that they are now making contacts

impossible before!  Why buy an amplifier

before using the One BIG Punch?

Thousands of happy users!  W4WB

says "I never operate my rigs without 

the One BIG Punch in my microphone!"

The Z-817 is the ultimate autotuner for QRP radios including the Yaesu FT-817(ND). The Z-817 interfaces to the CAT port (ACC) on the back of the FT-817 radio with the provided cable. Tuning could not be simpler; one button push on the tuner is all that is needed and the Z-817 takes care of the rest. It will switch to PKT mode, transmit a carrier, tune the tuner, then restore the radio to the previous mode! It has 2000 memories to cover 160 through 6 meters.

The Z-11Pro is a SOA autotuner and the Ultra version contains its own batteries for base and portable operation.  It weights more than the Z-100 Ultra, but it has many more features.  W4WB particularly likes the steel cover option so that the autotuner serves to hold the Palm Paddles for CW operation when portable.

This filter improves transmit audio quality

 by about a 2 dB gain in TALK POWER

and improves articulation.  Also improves

receive operation by having a much flatter

passband and great out-of-band rejection.

Same Collins Mechanical Filter used by

Yaesu, but much more affordable!  

Simple plug-in installation.

The bhi CAT-MATE is an electronic “Y” splitter that enables the bhi Radio Mate compact keypad to operate with many other accessories for the Yaesu radio series, and also be used as a standalone product. The key benefit of the CAT-MATE is that it allows more than one accessory to be used with the radios CAT port at the same time.

Easy to use adjustable stand for the FT-817(ND).  Really reduces stress trying to see the display!

Never have to get into the "tangle"

of wires behind your radio when you

want to operate CW.  This cable just

plugs into the microphone jack and,

with a single Menu you setting, is ready 

to go on CW.  Great for portable and

mobile operation.
