The FT-2000is the 2nd Generation in the proud lineage of the FTdx9000 Series! Featuring extensive DSP filtering, 100 Watts of power output, and a host of outstanding ergonomic and performance features, the FT-2000 is destined to be the centrepiece of your HF/50 MHz station! 160 - 6 Meter Coverage, 100 Watts of Power! The FT-2000 provides a full 100 Watts of power output (AM: 25 W) on the 160-6 Meter Amateur bands, Continuous receiver coverage from 30 kHz to 60 MHz is provided. Note: frequency coverage may differ in your country. Extensive Receiver DSP Filtering! The power of IF Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is yours to enjoy with the FT-2000. 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.




3-Band Parametric Microphone Equalizer!
The power of DSP also provides tremendous benefits for transmission, as well as reception. The Three-Band Parametric Microphone Equalizer allows unmatched capability to tailor your speech characteristics: in each of the three bands, you may adjust the center frequency of the equalization, the frequency spread over which the equalization is applied, and the amplitude (peaking or nulling) within that equalization range. The result is sparkling, clear audio that will be the envy of everyone else on the band!



A HIGH value for Q corresponds to a very narrow filter and a LOW value of Q corresponds to a wide filter. HIGH Q values are useful for picking out sounds that occupy a very narrow part of the audio spectrum, and LOWER Q'S produce a smoother type sound. As for the FT- 2000, the suggested BANDWIDTH for SSB is to use a BANDWIDTH of around 3 for the LOW FREQUENCIES, a BANDWIDTH of around 2 for the MID FREQUENCIES and a BANDWIDTH of 1 for the HIGH FREQUENCIES. These are values that have been proven to work not only in the lab but also in the "hamshack".



Following in the renowned path of the FTDX 9000, the FT-2000 is crafted with a comprehensive design view that accounts for all aspects of the strong signal environment, and especially with optimization of weak-signal in a multiple-strong-signal environment. The receiver of the FT-2000 is a triple-conversion type, utilizing great care in the gain distribution through all IF stages. The first mixer is a GaAs FET Doubly-Balanced Mixer type, fed by a four-VCO PLL synthesizer (30 kHz – 10.5 MHz, 10.5 MHz – 24 MHz, 24 MHz – 39 MHz, and 39 MHz – 56 MHz). The resulting first IF is at 69.450 MHz, utilizing an up-conversion technique that yields excellent image rejection.The first IF of the FT-2000 features three roofing filters, I bandwidths of 15 kHz, 6 kHz, and 3 kHz, optimized by mode for best performance on today’s crowded bands. Especially useful during busy contest weekends, the Roofing Filters are positioned right after the first mixer, improving IP3 (3rd-Order Intercept Point) performance for all stages that follow. On the lower Amateur bands, the signal voltages impinging on a receiver can create noise and Intermodulation effects that can cover up weak signals you’re trying to pull through. So YAESU’s engineers developed the µ (Mu) Tuning system for the FTDX9000, and it’s now available as an option for the FT-2000. Three modules are available (MTU-160, MTU-80/40, MTU-30/20), and these modules may be connected externally with no internal modification required! When µ-Tuning is engaged, the standard VRF (Variable RF Preselector) system is bypassed, but the fixed Bandpass Filters are still in the received signal path. The µ-Tuning filters utilize a stack of large 1.1” (28 mm) Ni-Zn Ferrite cores, driven through a silver-plated coil assembly by a precision stepper motor. The resulting high Q (typically over 300) provides a very steep resonance peak near your operating frequency. The peak may be adjusted away from your frequency, for even greater protection from a specific station, and a graphical depiction of the µ-Tune filter alignment appears on the front panel of the transceiver.

FT2000 High-visibility Fluorescent Display and DMU-2000 Spectrum Scope



Unique Receiver Configuration Display  When operating at a frantic pace, it’s a comfort to have such comprehensive information available on the front panel’s huge display. The FT-2000’s unique "Receiver Configuration Display” calls out status for each step in the receiver’s RF and IF, and the fluorescent display also provides both graphical and numerical depiction of the bandwidth and the alignment of the various interference-rejection filters. And the high-resolution analogue multi-meter allows you to monitor PO/COMP/SWR/ID/VDD/ALC both effortlessly and precisely.


 

As can be seen from the above image,  the display indicates a lot of information related to the control settings and selections activated from the front panel covered with knobs and buttons:

  • ATT:3-step front-end attenuator: -6/-12/-18 dB
  • IPO ON:bypasses the RF preamplifier
  • AMP 1:low distortion RF preamplifier
  • AMP 2:high gain RF preamplifier
  • R.FILT: switch selects first IF roofing filter 3/6/15 kHz bandwidth for VFO A only (Main RX)
  • FLT: VRFVariable RF Filter (preselector) on all bands
  • DSP:32 Bit IF DSP with adjustable filter response contours, Noise Reduction, IF Notch, etc.



A Host of Features for the CW Enthusiast!
The front and rear panels have their own key jacks, which may be set up independently for connection of a keyer paddle (for use with the internal keyer), a straight key or bug, or a computer-driven keying interface for use with contest logging software, etc. With the FT-2000, you can use both your ears and your eyes to zero in on another CW station. The CW SPOT switch engages a spotting tone that matches the offset of your transmitted signal (as set by the CW Pitch selection), allowing you to match that pitch to that of an incoming signal perfectly. And the CW Tuning Indicator provides a graphical depiction of the tuning process, with a ? marker lighting up when the incoming signal is precisely aligned with yours.






Five-Channel Digital Voice Memory and 15-Second Digital RX Recorder For storage and playback of repetitive messages you have to transmit in a contest, the four-channel Digital Voice Recorder (5 channels when using the optional FH-2 Keypad) will quickly and efficiently let you store CQ, Contest Number, and “QRZ” messages. On receive, a running 15-second loop recorder lets you stop the recording and play back the just-received audio, so you can confirm a callsign, for example.


EDSP TX Bandpass Filtering With the FT-2000, 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.





Huge Precision Main Tuning Dual!The front panel’s oversized 2.67” (68 mm) Main Tuning Knob is crafted using a brass JISC3604R alloy, for easy flywheel-effect frequency excursions or precision tuning of weak digital signals. The torque of the tuning knob shaft may be adjusted for just the amount of drag you prefer, and all it will take is one spin of the dial for you to know that you are in command of a serious radio!


Built-in 100-Memory Automatic Antenna Tuner
The 100 memories of matching-point data allow you to tune around the bands without the need to re-tune as you go. The special antenna tuner memories ensure efficient operation, as well as lightning-fast matching at new operating frequencies, as needed. The Automatic Antenna Tuner has a matching range of 16.7 to 150 Ohms (50 MHz: 25 - 100 Ohms).

I use the line isolation box in front of the balanced mic input of the Flex 5000. The line output of the EX 3200 goes to the Channel 1 Line IN and the Output to the balanced Mic input of the Flex 5000.

And the second input is used for the RCA Mic input (15) of the YAESU FT 2000. The Output of the W2IHY EQ Plus goes to Channel 2 to the Input and the Output is connected to the RCA (15) Mic in of the FT 2000.
