    apparently not, though I haven't opened one personally...

    Corrupt memory? seems to be a trend for these sets...

    Hello Jim,

    The FT-897D does not have a Button Battery but it does have a provision for internal batteries to operate portable. The Yaesu batteries and charger is a bit expensive but I found an article about the use of other suppliers batteries: http://www.eham.net/articles/4114 Perhaps you could do some thing like this modification.
