This is my newest radio. Yep, I actually bought it new this past May. It is a Yaesu FT-817ND portable HF/VHF/UHF Transceiver.
From Universal Radio:
It is also unique in that it is the smallest self-contained multiband HF radio on the market. It has many of the same features as the FT-857D and FT-897D but without the power amplifier. It only outputs 5 watts instead of the 100 watts of the FT-897D. However it is significantly smaller and can operate off of AA batteries if need be.
I used it to receive the audio for the posting on Amateur Radio Satellite. The first thing a person notices is how small it is. The next thing is how heavy it is relative to its size. It has a die-cast metal chassis and metal covers. Very little plastic.

Side showing headphone and microphone jacks. It is sitting on an AA battery.
All in all a fun radio. It is very popular with the QRP folks and satellite operators. I guess its handy in the Alaskan outback too.
