With the FT-450, Yaesu extends its desktop product line with a compact HF-6m transceiver with tuner. The double conversion receiver is equipped with a roofing filter and eight bandpass filters to prevent distortion of strong signals. The powerful DSP in IF (24 kHZ IF) offers many controls to be able to discriminate even the fastest signals from noise: IF shift, contour, noise reduction, manual notch filter, etc. And the DSP is also used in transmission where it implements a digital equalizer and controls the VOX very precisely, etc.
Regardless of whether you operate SSB, CW or RTTY - the FT-450 meets all expectations: split operations for the rare DX, integer keyer and multifunctional and FSK-RTTY and PSK31 functions using the data connector. Up to 500 memories organized in 12 different banks and the possibility to use the CAT interface to control the device from the computer (it is necessary to use the optional software).
Up to 100 W of transmission power are generated in the final at Mosfet of newest design. The aluminum frame, helped by a fan as generous as it is silent, helps to reduce thermal stress. An optional tuner (AT-450) can be installed at a later time, or - on request - we can install it for you. the FT-450AT version already has the factory-installed tuner. 12V DC power supply, 22 A max.
Dimensions: 229 x 84 x 217mm, approximate weight 3.6kg. Included in the shipment are the power cord, the MH-67A8J palm microphone and the instructions.
