The Yaesu FT-847 (which the company called it their Earth Station model), is a great choice as a do it all rig

Something that really makes this model stand out, is this one also has the very popular (yet so hard to
find in ham radios) is a cross band repeater built in, which allows you to create your own, "full-duplex"
repeater easily! The nice thing about working with crossband, is you normally don't have to invest in
expensive duplexors or cavity filters, that are necessary with "in-band" repeaters, due to receiver intermod and/or
