The FT DX 3000D - Building on the YAESU FT DX Heritage
The FT DX 3000D is the newest member of the YAESU FT DX Series. It inherits the design concepts of the FT DX 9000 and FT DX 5000 transceivers that have received high praise from all over the world by those pursuing the highest ideal of Amateur HF communication equipment.
The FT DX 3000D exhibits phenomenal multi-signal characteristics first demonstrated in the top-rated FT DX 5000. Using the two signal dynamic range measuring method with 10 kHz signal separation, the FT DX 3000 performance is 108.5 dB, IP3 +37 dBm. With frequency separation of only 2 kHz between the desired signal and an interfering signal, the dynamic range measures 106 dB and IP3 +33 dBm.
With all its features and amazing performance, the FT DX 3000D is a terrific rig for home or for a DXpedition at a truly affordable price.
|160 through 6 Meters - SSB/CW/FM/AM/Digital |
With efficient dimensions of 14.4" x 4.5" x 12.3" (W x H x D) and weighing in at only 22 pounds, the FT DX 3000D is a solidly packed tranceiver ready to give very high performance on all Amateur Radio bands from 160 to 6 meters.RTTY/PSK31 Encode / Decode Included
Various easy connections available for RTTY, SSTV, PSK31, JT, and other Digital Modes100 Watts of Solid Performance
The RF Final Amplifier produces a clean 100 watt (some modes less)transmit signal. A large heat sink is combined with the die cast aluminum chassis for efficient heat dissipation. A cooling fan located beside the final amplifier and the TX Low Pass Filter ventilates the heat away from inside of the transceiver cabinet. This large axial flow fan is mechanically isolated from the chassis to reduce vibration and noise. The speed of the fan is continuously controlled by the temperature of the PA amplifier; starting at 40 degree C.Antenna Tuner Included
High Speed Automatic Antenna Tuner included. The antenna tuner uses LC switching. It has a large capacity 100 channel memory; the tuning data is automatically memorized to reduce tuning time when changing frequency.Famous Yaesu Main Tuning Knob
A heavy weighted balanced brass core knob is used to give the famous Yaesu smooth flywheel operating feel to the FT DX 3000D Main Dial Knob. Each user may set his/her favorite torque feeling of the Main Dial rotation.IF Output
1st IF 9MHz signal with wide bandwidth IF Output available on the Rear Panel for after-market band scopes, CW Skimmer, etc.USB Capable
USB input included for firmware updates. This input can also facilitates CAT, USB AUDIO IN / OUT and USB TX Control (PTT, KEY and FSK)Remote Control From A Distant Location
External control (CAT) is possible using USB or Serial Port; this feature means the FT DX 3000D can be remotetly controlled from a distant location!Big TFT Full-Color Display For Superior Operability and Visibility
The FT DX 3000D presents a wide view angle, high contrast LCD 4.3 inch TFT impressive full color display that provides a convenient view of the radio’s working functions. Superior operability is realized with this convenient display. It permits excellent visibility from different viewpoints. Even with the many FT DX 3000D features and functions, the TFT display makes operation of the radio easy and comfortable.Top Performing RF Front End
The RF Front End circuit is the most important element because it ultimately determines the HF Receiver performance. Our Yaesu Engineering team has concentrated superior RF Engineering knowledge into the design of the FT DX 3000D front end.Down Conversion Receiver and Powerful Narrow Bandwidth Crystal Roofing Filters
The powerful narrow bandwidth crystal roofing filter enhances the receiver multi-signal characteristics. The FT DX 3000D "Down Conversion" receiver construction is similar to the FT DX 5000. The first IF frequency is 9 MHz. This makes possible narrow bandwidth crystal roofing filters (300 Hz, 600 Hz or 3 kHz) with a sharp shape factor that creates amazing multi-signal receiving performance. The powerful narrow bandwidth crystal roofing filter enhances the receiver multi-signal characteristics.Effective QRM and QRN Rejection
Effective QRM rejection is achieved from the FT DX 3000D IF DSP. The 32-bit high speed floating decimal point DSP, TMS320C6727B (maximum 2800 MIPS/ 2100 MFLOPS) made by Texas Instruments, is used for the IF section of the FT DX 3000D. The signal is processed with the high speed 300 MHz clock frequency.Very Low Noise Floor - Terrific Signal to Noise Ratio
The S/N ratio (signal-to-noise ratio) of the local signal that is injected into the 1st IF mixer is one of the most important factors for improving the receiver properties in the ultra-multi-signal environment.Three IPO Settings - Best Signal Reception During Changing Band Conditions
3-step IPO settings permit the operator to select the most appropriate gain for best signal reception. This variety of selections provides superior receiver performance and the best possible communications with changing band conditions.High Quality Audio With Punch
The modulation circuit of the FT DX 3000d utilizes digital variation operational modulation, which creates ideal high quality transmission audio.Three Antenna Inputs
Three antenna connectors are available on the FT DX 3000D Rear Panel.CW Features Galore
• CW APF (Receiver Audio Peak Filter) with 3 bandwidth steps5 Digital Voice Messages
Each memory channel is capable of storing up to 20 seconds of audio using the optional DVS-6.RX Output
The "RX Output" connector on the FT DX 3000D Rear Panel accesses the signal from the receiver RF amplifier. The signal can then be output to an external receiver for in-band simultaneous receiving.Optional Fully-Automatic µ-Tuning Kit
The u-Tuning Kit that was developed for the FT DX 9000, is optionally available for use with the FT DX 3000D. No other Amateur Radio radio manufacturer offers a comparable device that may improve your DXing performance in some challenging operating situations.
