Hall constant, conductivity and magnetic susceptibility of Pb1-x-ySnyMnxTe semimagnetic semiconductor were investigated as a function of Mn content (x = 0.04, 0.09, 0.16, y = (0.7-0.8)) in the temperature range T = (4 -300) K. A ferromagnetic phase transition takes place at T = 5 K for samples with x = 0.04, at T = 10 K for x = 0.09 and at T = 20 K for x = 0.16. For crystals with x > 0.09 the strong temperature dependence of the Hall constant is observed for temperatures below 40 K. Magnetic
