- When using the W4RT charger for the FT 897 and 897D, the red light on
the radio display doesn't light. When using the OEM charger from
Yaesu, it does. Larry is right in his wiring explanation.
If W4RT put all those extra wires in their charger, it would cost the
same as the OEM charger. As far as I can tell, they both work equally
well for me.
