This year I purchased a FT-1000MP from the son of a silent key. The plan was to finally set up a proper shack in my house after a decade of only working mobile and portable.
It turns out the noise floor at my QTH is well over S9 and no amount of hunting for electrically noisy neighbours and pestering the power company has helped. If anything it’s gotten worse.
I’m giving up and selling my base radios (please see my other ads) to pursue better gear for POTA activations.
This Yaesu is in top condition. It has some very minor wear and tear on the paint but works flawlessly for as much as I’ve been able to test it. The tuner works fine and for the few stations I’ve been able to hear, sounds fantastic. Reports on my signal are always stellar. This unit has one of the best feeling VFO knobs I’ve ever had the pleasure to spin. The power supply seems to be in top shape. The radio is otherwise stock with no additional filters or modules. No box. Just the MH-31 mic and AC power cord. I’ve printed a copy of the owners manual which I will include. It’s only been with me since the spring but it will be missed.
Tested at 93.73W into a dummy load at full power.
Will deliver within the Edmonton area or will ship at my cost.
