160 - 6M Coverage - 100 W Power Output The FT-2000 provides a full 100W of power output ( 25W AM) on the 160 - 6M ham bands. Contineous Receiver coverage from 30KHz to 60MHZ is provided. UK Versions include the 60M TX assigned frequencies.
Extensive Receiver DSP Filtering The power of IF DSP filtering is yours to enjoy with the FT2000. Variable IF width and IF Shift allow precise interfence rejection, and the receiver DSP also includes Auto Notch, Manual Notch, Digital Noise Rejection and a continously variable passband contour control. The Width control has a mode determined adjustoment range from 200Hz to 4KHz for SSB, 25Hz to 2.4KHz on CW and a mode optimized 'Narrow' key provides one touch narrowing of the bandwidth to a user determined preset value.
User adjustable Variable TX Bandwidth The FT-200 allows the user to adjust the Transmitter bandwidhth to provide unprecidented control over the fidelity and/or talk power of the SSB signal, thanks to the variable SSB bandwidht capabilities built into the FT-2000 software menu control system. The default bandwidth of 300 -2400Hz at -6dB gives the radio an excellent SSB signal that is useful for normal QSO's, but other bandwidths of 50 - 3000Hz, 100 -2900Hz, 200 - 2800Hz and 400 - 2600Hz are available. The first for example being suitable for hi- fi like audio quality and the narrow bandwidth of the latter being extremely useful for breaking the DC pileups.
3 Band Parametric Microphone Equaliser The Power of DSP also provides tremendeous benefits not only to the Received signal but also to the Transmitted signal. The three-Band parametric equalizer, allows unmatched capability to tailor your speech characteristics in each of the three seperate bands. Each band centre frequency and equalisation can be adjusted along with the bandwith of the band and the ampliture of the peaking or nulling of signals within the passband. The result is sparking clear audio that is the envy of anyone listening to the FT-2000.
Outstanding Strong Signal Handling capabilities Following in the renowned path of the FTDX9000, the FT-2000 is crafted with a comprehensive design view that accounts for all aspects of the strong signal environment, and especially with optimization of weak-signal in a multiple-strong-signal environment. The receiver of the FT-2000 is a triple-conversion type, utilizing great care in the gain distribution through all IF stages. The first mixer is a GaAs FET Doubly-Balanced Mixer type, fed by a four-VCO PLL synthesizer (30 kHz – 10.5 MHz, 10.5 MHz – 24 MHz, 24 MHz – 39 MHz, and 39 MHz – 56 MHz). The resulting first IF is at 69.450 MHz, utilizing an up-conversion technique that yields excellent image rejection.
FTDX9000-Lineage Triple Roofing Filter System for Crowded Bands (Main Band VFO) The first IF of the FT-2000 features three roofing filters, I bandwidths of 15 kHz, 6 kHz, and 3 kHz, optimized by mode for best performance on today’s crowded bands. Especially useful during busy contest weekends, the Roofing Filters are positioned right after the first mixer, improving IP3 (3rd-Order Intercept Point) performance for all stages that follow.
The Ultimate Low-Band DXer RF Preselection Filter: YAESU’s Exclusive µ-Tuning! On the lower Amateur bands, the signal voltages impinging on a receiver can create noise and Intermodulation effects that can cover up weak signals you’re trying to pull through. So YAESU’s engineers developed the µ (Mu) Tuning system for the FTDX9000, and it’s now available as an option for the FT-2000. Three modules are available (MTU-160, MTU-80/40, MTU-30/20), and these modules may be connected externally with no internal modification required! When µ-Tuning is engaged, the standard VRF (Variable RF Preselector) system is bypassed, but the fixed Bandpass Filters are still in the received signal path. The µ-Tuning filters utilize a stack of large 1.1” (28 mm) Ni-Zn Ferrite cores, driven through a silver-plated coil assembly by a precision stepper motor. The resulting high Q (typically over 300) provides a very steep resonance peak near your operating frequency. The peak may be adjusted away from your frequency, for even greater protection from a specific station, and a graphical depiction of the µ-Tune filter alignment appears on the front panel of the transceiver.
Enhance Operation using External Display (option)! A wide array of informative and useful displays, identical to those available on the FTDX9000D, can be obtained by adding the optional DMU-2000 Data Management Unit and an after-market display (not supplied). You get an Audio Scope (plus “Waterfall”) and Oscilloscope, Logging Page, Band Scope, World Clock with Sunrise/Sunset Terminator Display, Swept-frequency SWR display, Memory Channel listing, Rotator Control display with Great Circle Map, and a comprehensive Menu listing, as well. Enjoy the ultimate in operating ease by adding the DMU-2000!
Five-Channel Digital Voice Memory and 15-Second Digital RX Recorder For storage and playback of repetitive messages you have to transmit in a contest, the four-channel Digital Voice Recorder (5 channels when using the optional FH-2 Keypad) will quickly and efficiently let you store CQ, Contest Number, and “QRZ” messages. On receive, a running 15-second loop recorder lets you stop the recording and play back the just-received audio, so you can confirm a callsign, for example.
Huge Precision Main Tuning Dual! The front panel’s oversized 2.67” (68 mm) Main Tuning Knob is crafted using a brass JISC3604R alloy, for easy flywheel-effect frequency excursions or precision tuning of weak digital signals. The torque of the tuning knob shaft may be adjusted for just the amount of drag you prefer, and all it will take is one spin of the dial for you to know that you are in command of a serious radio!
A Host of Features for the CW Enthusiast! The front and rear panels have their own key jacks, which may be set up independently for connection of a keyer paddle (for use with the internal keyer), a straight key or bug, or a computer-driven keying interface for use with contest logging software, etc. With the FT-2000, you can use both your ears and your eyes to zero in on another CW station. The CW SPOT switch engages a spotting tone that matches the offset of your transmitted signal (as set by the CW Pitch selection), allowing you to match that pitch to that of an incoming signal perfectly. And the CW Tuning Indicator provides a graphical depiction of the tuning process, with a ? marker lighting up when the incoming signal is precisely aligned with yours.
Built-in 100-Memory Automatic Antenna Tuner The 100 memories of matching-point data allow you to tune around the bands without the need to re-tune as you go. The special antenna tuner memories ensure efficient operation, as well as lightning-fast matching at new operating frequencies, as needed. The Automatic Antenna Tuner has a matching range of 16.7 to 150 Ohms (50 MHz: 25 - 100 Ohms).
