This is really an old post, but you dont have to go through all the trouble as listed at that link..

Just call INRAD and get the 3.8 filter on a board for the FT-897. Cost me $147.00 shipped..

How can ya go wrong, a teenie wennie eSSB Rig !

For those who care: Managed to do a couple mods to the 857, mostly already known stuff. Combined with the 3k8 inrad the unit now sounds at least "ok" in tx and "good" in rx :) Using a headset mic now. (Remember, this thing still shall stay a mobile trx)

Are there any others out there to share the 857 experience?

I miss my 850, but the circumstances make big fat audio gear impossible for me in this period. Just no space for rig, rack, antennas.
