Yaesu FT-DX9000 D
A good mixture of traditional functions and latest technology - the new Yaesu flagship transceiver FT-DX9000D offers all.
The FT-DX9000D utilizes two independent receivers (triple conversion superhet) offering the best possibilities for hunting that rare DX. A high sensitivity (2μV SSB @2.4 kHz) and excellent selectivity are Yaesu standard. The transceiver covers all amateur bands from 160 to 6m, the receiver covers 30 kHz to 60MHz.
The newly designed "μ-Tune" preselector filters cover 160 to 20m and continue the well known VRF filter tradition from earlier Yaesu radios. The provide a very narrow filtering and optimisation of the first stage HF filter.
Three selectable roofing filters (3, 6 and 15 kHz wide) work on the first IF level and are vital for providing an excellent blocking dynamic range. By utilizing the latest 32-Bit DSP technology at the IF level there is no need for buying costly crystal filters. Still you don't have to give up tried and tested filter functions - Yaesu extends the tradition of the contour filters known from earlier rigs, giving the DSP filters an almost analog feeling.
A new designed 400MHz DDS sythesizer works at the heart of the FT-DX9000D transceiver, resulting in superior reduction of phase noise and a very quiet receiver.
The transmitter offers solid 200 W out, the final amp has very low distortions and offer Class A or Class AB mode operation. The built-in tuner allows the use of various antennas, the tuning range is 16,7 to 150Ω (160-10m)
Another achievement of Yaesu is to make such a complex transceiver still easily useable. Besides the traditional frequency display the FT-DX9000D offers a 6.8" colour display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. Besides basic status information the screen offers a lot of functions which help the user in his daily operations. Some functions are: Status information, Audio display (Spectrum or waterfall), HF spectrum, a log book, world map with grey-line, world clock, beam map and direct rotator control (Yaesu rotators). All individual settings and the log is stored on a supplied CF memory card.
Two large analog S-Meters for the two receivers provide vital information at a glance
