The Yaesu FT-2000 follows in the tradition of venerable FT-1000 series, and incorporates an amazing number of advanced features from the FT-9000 series. The FT-2000 provides a full 100 Watts of power output (AM: 25 W) on the 160-6 Meter Amateur bands, and the U.S. version includes a special memory bank containing the five 60-meter channels, as well. Superb continuous receive from 30 kHz to 60 MHz is provided. The receiver front-end includes VRF (Variable RF Tuning) preselector which works in conjunction with a bank of fixed bandpass filters. This provides a front-line defense against strong out of band signals. The result is improved dynamic range and a higher intercept point than other designs. The First IF roofing filters (3/6/15 kHz) increase dynamic range in crowded band conditions. Variable IF Width and IF Shift allow precise interference rejection, and the receiver DSP also includes an Auto-Notch, Manual Notch, Digital Noise Reduction, and a continuously-variable passband Contour control. The WIDTH control has a mode-determined adjustment range of 200 Hz – 4 kHz for SSB, and 25 Hz to 2.4 kHz on CW, and a mode-optimized “Narrow” key provides one-touch narrowing of the bandwidth to a user-determined preset value. You can also tailor your transmit signal. You have tremendous control over the fidelity and/or “talk power” of your SSB signal, thanks to the variable SSB bandwidth capability in the Menu. The default bandwidth is 2.4 kHz (300 – 2400 Hz @ -6 dB), but you also have selections of 50 – 3000 Hz, 100 – 2900 Hz, 200 – 2800 Hz, and 400 – 2600 Hz, allowing you to select the bandwidth best suiting your operating needs. The DMU-2000 Data Management Unit shown above is optional.
