The Yaesu FTDX5000 series of HF/50 MHz 200 watt transceivers are a new premium class of Yaesu radios with two fully independent receivers plus many unique options and accessories designed to meet the performance requirements of even the most demanding amateur radio operator. Yaesu engineers have achieved 112 dB dynamic range and an IP3 [3rd Order Intercept Point] of +40 dBm (CW, 500 Hz BW). Newly designed, extra sharp roofing filters for VFOA/Main receiver are selectable between 300 Hz (optional on some versions), 600 Hz, 3 kHz, 6 kHz and 15 kHz. Yaesu incorporates two of their famous custom designed 32 bit floating point DSP chips based on the TI TMS320C6727B running at 300 MHz … one for VFO A and one for VFO B. Enjoy state of the art on the transmit side with a pair of reliable VRF150 FETS in a push-pull configuration yielding 200 watts (75 watts class A operation). Three electro-luminescent subdisplays indicate sub frequency, graphical wave and menu functions. The rear panel features a 9 MHz IF out from VFO Main receiver.
