This manual provides technical information necessary for
servicing the FT-897 HF/VHF/UHF ALL MODE Transceiver.
Servicing this equipment requires expertise in handling
surface-mount chip components. Attempts by non-qualified
persons to service this equipment may result in permanent
damage not covered by the warranty, and may be illegal in
Two PCB layout diagrams are provided for each double-sided
circuit board in the Transceiver. Each side of is referred
to by the type of the majority of components installed on
that side (“leaded” or “chip-only”). In most cases one side has
only chip components, and the other has either a mixture of
both chip and leaded components (trimmers, coils, electrolytic
capacitors, ICs, etc.), or leaded components only.
