FTDX-3000 HF/50MHz Transceiver
Yaesu FT DX 3000 HF/50 MHz 100W Transceiver

The FT DX 3000 Transceiver is the newest additions to the Yaesu family of fine Amateur Radios, incorporating down conversion and sharp edged crystal roofing filter technology. These features provide outstanding receiver performance which is a handed down heritage of the FT-DX5000. The FTDX3000 transceiver incorporates many other new features in a compact housing using a 3.5" TFT screen for displaying operating frequency, mode and other essential operating information. 
FT DX 3000 Brief Description

Rugged 100 Watt Output Power

The Amazing Crystal Roofing Filter performance has been proven in the FT DX 5000

The Down conversion 9 MHz 1st IF frequency receiver construction can realise narrow 300 Hz (optional), 600 Hz and 3 kHz bandwidth roofing filters.

Implementing the extra sharp Crystal Roofing Filters provides superior close-in dynamic range and affords the best receiver performance possible.

Outstanding Receiver performance is the heritage of the FT DX 5000
The Essential elements in receiver performance are the RF amplifier and the 1st mixer.

The RF Amplifier has optimized NF points, and the over-sized wide range RF transformer exhibits minimum saturation in strong signal processing. The optimized devices were selected to guarantee superior multi-signal RX performance.

The desired maximum performance has been realized in the development of the FT DX 3000 receiver circuitry. This new radio has the high dynamic rance IP3 performance that was realized and proven in the FT DX 5000.

IF DSP provides effective and optimized QRM rejection
The 32 bit high speed floating decimal DSP (max 2800 MIPS) provides effective cancellation/reduction (DNR) of the random noise that is frequently found on the HF Frequencies.

Auto-Notch (DNF) that automatically eliminates the dominant beat tone

CONTOUR and APF; very effective receiver noise reduction tools in the HF band operations.

Yaesu original DSP QRM and noise reduction are also provided with the new FT DX 3000.

Large and Wide Colour LCD Display
The high-resolution (480 x 272 dots) 3.5-inch wide colour LCD displays the operating information and the status of the transceiver functions.

The various FT DX 3000 functions are displayed on this LCD and provide the operator with easy to read operating information.

High Speed Spectrum Scope built-in
Although the FT DX 3000 only has one receiver, a high speed Spectrum Scope is built into the radio.

When in Auto Mode, the Spectrum Scope display is updated in real time.

The maximum bandwidth of the scope is 1 MHz, and the minimum span width setting is 20 kHz. The best desired span is selectable for the high-resolution display. The current band activity can be monitored in real time.

AF SCOPE display and RTTY/PSK encoder/decoder (optional)
The optional AF SCOPE and optional RTTY encoder/decoder functions have been developed for the FT DX 3000.

The wave form of the AF SCOPE signal can be displayed on the TFT LCD. Also, the RTTY/PSK text may be displayed on the LCD.

Independent Frequency Display
The Main operating frequency is the most important display in the radio, with VFO-A frequency located just above the main dial.

The newly-developed LCD has a wider viewing angle and higher contrast for convenient and effortless viewing.
