Does Yaesu have a new HF radio coming out, many of the hams who attended the Orlando show seem to be hearing some scuttlebutt about Yaesu bringing a new HF radio to market.

Apparently...


There are several threads around the 'net about it. Including here at eham https://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php?topic=119116.0


Here starting with post # 24

And this https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/yaesu-ft-818-test-results-posted.598493/


There was a rumor going around since 2012 that Yaesu was going to release the FT 818 and nothing materialized. However there has been FCC documentation released this month showing that there is a new radio coming from Yaesu. While reports from six years ago were just rumors, now it looks like it maybe finally coming true.

By the way, someone came up with a picture of the FT 818 (Six Years Ago).  This is nothing but a Photoshopped mock up of someone's idea what it would look like. Truth is there are supposed pictures of the new Yaesu radio, but it is right now considered proprietary information and pictures will NOT be released until August of this year according to the FCC filings.
