A few years ago 2 friends of mine each bought a Yaesu FT 8900. I had the opportunity to observe and also use the radio. I thought it was nice, but certainly priced too high to be worth the investment for me. Up until recently I had only ever used and needed a single band 2 meter or dual band VHF/UHF rig in the vehicle and that met my needs. 4 bands? Who really uses or needs 4 bands? I Thought to myself.

In recent years I've been both more active on the ham radio and doing more on the road. Often times there were UHF repeaters that would lend themselves better to a particular situation but I only had 2 meters available. Or sometimes If I had dual band it was just a 5 watt HT hooked to a mobile antenna. It performed well but I needed more power and less clutter than having speakers, microphones, power cables and coax strung all over the car.

It had been since I got my ticket in 2001 I last purchased a brand new mobile radio. Yes, I was definitely due for new mobile rig. I figured it may as well be the best mobile I can afford. But $400+ for a Yaesu quad bander? Still no way I could justify it. With lots of chatter amongst the locals about the new budget priced Chinese rigs I began to pay attention. A year before the TYT-TH9800 was even produced I found out it was in the design stages. I made a point to follow the progress and buy one if it turned out to be worthwhile.

So was it worthwhile? Well, turns out my job is now sending me on road trips as much as 300 miles or more a day. Remote wilderness areas of upstate PA. No cell service dead zones. The HT had to go and I replaced it with the TH9800. Now I wonder how I ever got by on anything less. Paired with a tri-band Radio Shack "scanner" antenna this rig has been pure mobile operating bliss.

I really like this radio. I wasn't expecting to, but I do. Mine had a couple of issues, such as the left VFO knob pushbutton being flaky, and the lack of any kind of mounting mechanism for the face, but nothing terribly serious. I've gotten good audio reports on 2m and 70cm so far - haven't tried 6 or 10 yet but I am sure they are fine.

In a moment of terrifying bravery, I decided to see if this radio would tolerate a 4S LiPo battery, fully charged, at 16.8V. It appears to tolerate it just fine! I didn't key down for too long, but I gave it a good 15 seconds of transmit and nothing blew up. This is only 1V above the "spec" of 13.8 + 15%.

I also ran some quick current measurements at a couple of different voltages:

Single VFO
Dimmer 4 (brightness all the way up)

Quiescent: 8.1-8.4W / 0.55A @ 15.42V
5W TX, 70cm: 2.43A / 37.4W
10W TX, 70cm: 3.13A / 47.4W
20W TX, 70cm: 4.27A / 65.4W
40W TX, 70cm: 7.32A / 112W

Quiescent: 6.1W / 0.55A @ 11.6V
5W TX, 70cm: 2.45A / 27.5W
10W TX, 70cm: 3.31A / 37.2W
20W TX, 70cm: 5.48A / 59.4W
40W TX, 70cm: 10.94A / 109W @10V (Li-Ion pack getting dragged down)

I also tried using this radio as part of a digipeater using Linux, soundmodem, and aprx, along with an EasyDigi interface. It worked great at 1200bps on 70cm.

Anyway, here are a couple of things I would like to see on a future version:

1) An access jack to get direct access to the exciter and discriminator for doing higher baud rates using a soundcard modem
2) Mounting holes on the back of the face plate so that it can be panel-mounted or mounted on a gooseneck in the car or something
3) For the love of Pete, TYT, put the schematics on the web or include them in the box! So far they are unobtainium.

I was first hesitant investing this much on a Chinese mobile radio for my car. This is an exact clone of the FT-8900, which is about $180 more more expensive AND less capabilities. To my surprise, I am very happy with this purchase. Chinese radios has been criticized by many ham operators but little do they know that all "Japanese made" radios are actually made also in China, or parts of it at least. This is no exception. I see a well built and very good quality ham radio. It does exactly what the FT-8900 but with unlocked transmit in all bands! It can also transmit in AM in 10 and CB bands. All this the FT-8900 can not do. This is a good addition to your shack if you are really objective in evaluating quality, performance, and capabilities. I own a Yaesu FT-8800 and other Yaesus but I have to admit that this is better that the FT-8900 in so many aspects.

The only thing I did not like about it out of the box is it is set not to transmit if the frequency is busy or has a carrier (Busy Lock). This will be frustrating and can turn off any ham operator. To add to that frustration, there is no option in the radio's menu that can turn that off. Imagine checking into a net but you cant because you're waiting for the repeater to drop, which rarely happens.Bottom line, you won't be able to use it out of the box if you are going to work repeaters. This is the only thing that kills this radio and why TYT designed it as a default is beyond me. Make sure you purchase the programming cable and have the TYT program ready to disable that function.

Shipping was fast and seller stands by their product.
