Note reduced price for local (Zip 20170 / grid FM18hx) sale. Including
QRP-L for awareness. Both radios are fully functional and produce full
output power. These are the pre-ND models.
Reason for sale: Acquired a IC-9700 for satellites and not operating HF
portable enough. Radios are meant to be used.
Contact me direct if questions, OK to forward to other lists.

I am selling my IC-821H all-mode 2M/70cm satellite radio (funds to go
towards acquiring an IC9700). I am the original owner; this was my 1st new
true satellite radio, used at home non-smoking) and Field Day. More
recently, this was my radio for roving. It is in excellent electronic
condition, outputs full power on 2M and 70cm. Good-VG cosmetic condition:
has some scratches on panels and abrasion of the front buttons, but
EVERYTHING works as it should. Comes with MH26 mic, DC cable with Power
Poles, acc plug, manual and schematics, and original packaging.
This radio will let you work almost every FM and SSB/CW and Data satellite
currently operating, including Falconsat-3 (9k6 data). Fully compatible
with SatPC32, the new S.A.T tracker/controller (I helped them test the code
for the 821H), and probably other software (MacDoppler, hamlib, etc.).
Also good for terrestrial VHF & UHF modes (CW, SSB, WSJT modes, APRS,
FM...). Ergonomics for manual satellite ops (e.g. managing doppler
control) are excellent.
Lower price for LARG, SPARC, and DC-area AMSAT: $400 delivered.
Still to come: A pair of FT817's (not ND) I set up for satellite roving.
