A great mixture of traditional functions and latest technology-the new flagship of the Yaesu FT-DX9000D has it all.
The FT-DX9000D utilizes two independent receivers (triple conversion superhet) offering the best opportunity for hunters to rare DX. A high sensitivity (2μV @ SSB 2.4 kHz) and excellent selectivity are Yaesu standard. The transceiver covers all amateur bands from 160 through 6 meters, the receiver covers from 30 kHz to 60.
The newly designed preselector filter "μ-Tune" covers from 160 to 20 m and continues the well-known tradition of VRF filter of the first radios Yaesu. Provides a very narrow filtering and optimization of first stage HF filter.
Three selectable roofing filters (3, 6 and 15 kHz wide) work on the first level of IF and are vital in providing an excellent dynamic range. Using the latest 32-Bit DSP technology to the level of "IF you don't need to purchase expensive Crystal filters. You don't have to commit to tried and tested functions on filters-Yaesu extends the tradition of the earliest known contour filters transceivers, giving an almost analog DSP filters.
A newly developed 400 MHz DDS synthesizer works in the heart of the FT-DX9000D, resulting in a greater reduction of phase noise and a transceiver very quiet.
The transmitter offers solid 200 watt output, the power amplifier has a very low distortion offering class A or class AB operation. Antenna tuner allows the use of various antennas, the range goes from 16.7 to 150 Ω agree (160-10 m)
Another feature of Yaesu is to maintain such complex transceivers still usable. Under the traditional frequency display the FT-DX9000D offers a 6.8 "display at 800 x 480 pixel resolution color. In addition to the important sights of the screen provides some functions which help the user in its daily operations. Some features are: State information, Audio display (spectrum or waterfall), HF spectrum, a log book, world map with grey-line, world clock, map pointing and direct control of rotors (Yaesu rotators). All individual settings are stored in the CF card.
Two large analog S-Meters for the two receivers will provide vital information at a glance
Yaesu offers a CD ROM with information and documentation about the new FT-DX9000. The cost for this CD including shipping is 5.00 Euro. Please send a $ 5.00 Euros or your credit card details to receive this CD ROM from WiMo.
