A wide array of information, useful and easily understood displays, absolutely identical to those available on the FTDX9000 can also be yours by adding the optional DMU-2000 Data Management Unit and an after-market keyboard and PC display (not supplied).
Spectrum Scope with LBWS - The RF Band Scope allows you to view activity within a span of 25 kHz, 100 kHz, 250 kHz, 500 kHz, 1 MHz, or 2.5 MHz, depending on your requirements, with a fixed sweep speed for seamless transition between spans. Additionally, the YAESU-exclusive LBWS (Limited Band Width Sweep) allows you to reduce the bandwidth to 50%, 30%, or 10% of the original, imparting a corresponding increase in the sweep speed, if you like. By sweeping just a limited portion of the main Band Scope at high speed, you will get a superbly detailed view of activity in that segment of the overall band, allowing you precise zero-in capability not found with competing products. With a 50% reduction, you will get double the speed; with reduction to 30% of the original sweep, you will get a 3X increase in speed, and by reducing the bandwidth to 10% you will get a whopping 10X increase in the sweep speed. You can use the " " and " " keys to move the remaining window, as desired. You may choose the Spectrum Scope Function (which will plot your current operating frequency in the middle of the monitor screen) or the Band Monitor Function (which will be checking the whole band you are currently operating). At the Band Monitor Function, you will be able to set the lowest starting frequency at your preference (for CW or SSB operation). The lowest starting frequency will not be purged if once set up even if you change your bandwidth.
Audio Scope/Oscilloscope Display Function - The Audio Scope Function and the Oscilloscope Function of the DMU-2000 may be the most useful capability of the Data Management Unit. The Audio Scope portrays the audio spectrum of either the receiver passband or your transmitted signal, allowing you to visualize the frequency components as you hear them. This function also enables you to make adjustments to, such as, the Notch Filter, Contour control or (on transmit) the Parametric Microphone Equalizer. At the same time, you may use the Oscilloscope to look at the X-Y characteristics of an incoming signal with variable level and sweep speed, or to check CW tone pitch, etc.
Swept-Frequency SWR Display - As you tune across the Amateur band and transmit at different frequencies, the DMU-2000 will plot the SWR across the band, alerting you to any unusual SWR situations, etc.
Memory Channel List - You may edit and confirm your memory frequency channels, with easy on your big screen, such as to add an alpha/numeric "Tag" to each memory for quick recall of the channel's identification.
World Clock Display -The World Clock function includes a world map with entries for a number of locations throughout the world, so that you will see what the time of day at the other end of our QSO or anywhere in the world. Of great advantages value to serious DXers is the Sunrise/Sunset depiction, which shows the "Gray Line" area where propagation frequently is enhanced. An alarm feature is also included, to alert you of a schedule time.
Rotator Control Function - The Rotator Control Function includes the Great Circle Map that allows you to aim your directional antenna accurately (e.g. Tokyo seems to be located West from San Francisco though it is more actually located to the NNW direction) and the imbedded database of worldwide cities may be used to determine a specific bearing to a DX location, if you like. The Rotator Control function further lets you control the left(C-C-W)/right(C-W) rotation of your Yaesu G-800/1000/2800DXA series rotator, in addition to permitting speed control and setup of preset beam headings. And, if you use your after-market keyboard for input of your latitude and longitude, the DMU-2000 will lie out compute and display a Great Circle Map centered on your location! You may also connect a GPS Unit (one capable of output of NMEA0183 position data) to your DMU-2000 to download precise position data.
Log Book Feature - By connecting an after-market keyboard and monitor to the DMU-2000, you can utilize the on-board logging capability of the FT-2000. The Log Book includes an extensive database of DX information, and you may archive your log data to the supplied CF card using one of the popular and available logging formats like ADIF, Cabrillo, etc.
