Bought a Yaesu FT-891 several years ago when they first came out because it's a small radio with a nice receiver. I'm not a ham, I only use it to listen to shortwave but they're reasonably priced and have a great receiver. I've always had it hooked up to the 12v power supply but last night I thought why not buy a battery to supply power to it and make it portable and a little quieter so I bought a 12v sealed lead acid battery this morning. Don't know why I didn't think of this year's ago! Hooked up to the Wellbrook loop antenna and enjoying the nice weather in Arizona.
