FTDX-9000MP HF/50MHz 400W Transceiver
FTDX-9000MP HF/50MHz 400W Transceiver
The ultimate machine in the FTDX-9000 range, the MP offers an incredible 400W transmission power and is supplied with the FPS-9000H  external power supply with dual speakers and audio filters.  Like the Contest, the MP is fully customisable to suit your own particular needs.
Advanced 32-Bit IF DSP

The FT DX 9000 utilizes a 32-bit floating-point IF Digital Signal Processing system to provide a wide range of interference-suppression and intelligence-recovery features. Included are Variable IF Bandwidth with preset "Narrow" settings, IF Shift, Digital Noise Reduction, and a Parametric Equalizer "Contour" system for enhancing or suppressing sections of the IF passband. On transmit, the bandwidth is adjustable, and the SSB voice parameters may be precisely adjusted using the Three-Band Parametric Equalizer system.

400 Watt Power Output
The FT DX 9000MP provides 400 Watts of power output with real-time metering of the bias level and heat sink temperature, for adjustment of the operating conditions between Class AB and Class A. Class A output is 100 Watts.

Yaesu Exclusive: Full Duplex (for One-Radio SO2R Operation!)
The FT DX 9000MP is the only Amateur HF Transceiver to provide Full Duplex capability when operating on two different bands. So, in a contest, you can be calling CQ on 10 metres while simultaneously receiving on 20 metres, looking for new multipliers! This unique capability is found only on the FT DX 9000 series

Three Roofing Filters for Outstanding Close-In Dynamic Range
The FT DX 9000MP provides three "Roofing" filters in the first IF, allowing you to select (on the fly, or automatically by mode) front-end bandwidths of 15 kHz, 6 kHz, or 3 kHz. Choose the bandwidth that best matches the band occupancy and your operating mode at the time!

Leading-Edge Receiver Performance
The receivers in the FT DX 9000MP are crafted using an ultra-quiet 400 Mhz High-Resolution DDS local oscillator, for extraordinarily low noise close to the carrier. The high-level mixers and robust IF amplifier stages are designed to yield a 3rd-order Intercept Point in excess of +40 dBm, your assurance of high performance on today's crowded bands.

Parametric Microphone Audio Equalizer
Another unique FT DX 9000MP feature is the 3-band Parametric Microphone Equalizer, independently adjustable for the front panel (XLR) and rear panel (8-pin round) microphone connectors! The Parametric Equalizer system allows the operator to tailor the transmit passband more precisely than with other equalizer systems. You can adjust the center frequency of each of the three audio passbands, the width of each of these bands, and the amount of boost or suppression you wish to engage within each of these frequency ranges. This allows you to focus available power where you want it, and maximize fidelity according to your voice pattern and the response of your microphone. And because you can adjust the front and rear microphone jacks independently, you can equalize one way for a "DX" mic element on the rear panel, and equalize differently for a "studio" microphone on the front panel mic jack.
