Yaesu FT-8500 Dual Band with extras

For your consideration, is a Yaesu FT-8500 with not one, but two legendary “Mr. Potatohead” microphones, original separation kit, control head mounting kit, and original programming software. Radio has seen some use but has been tested on both VFO’s on both bands for TX and RX without issue. Band scope has also been tested, Screen is bright and vibrant with no contrast loss. Radio also features a packet port if you’re into that. Only notable issue is the VFO knob has some slight stutter to it when turning, could likely be resolved with use or contact cleaner. The fan is a bit loud (what mobile isn’t?)

Willing to deliver within a reasonable distance in the Okanagan, BC, or ship Canada wide at your expense. 

to recap, what is included with this package:

  • FT-8500 with as-new FS-10 in box with all accessories’
  • Second used FS-10 Potato head microphone
  • YSK-8500 Separation kit
  • ADMS-2D Programming kit (sealed)
  • MMB-62 Face mounting kit


I feel like the price is fair given the included hard to find accessories, but if interested please feel free to make an offer. additional photos are available upon request.
