Does anyone know how to power a Yaesu FT-65 handheld DIRECTLY from a battery instead of using a battery and a DC-AC INVERTER?
OR- Can it not be done?

Thanks- Peter K6PAA

Unless you are willing to go in and rewire the radio, it can't be done.
Many radios have a connector for DC power but the FT-65 does not.
