I am new to this list and also a new owner of the FT-1000MP Mark-V. I bought
the radio without any additional filters and I am looking for some suggestions
as to what to get for it.
I am considering INRAD filters over the optional Yaesu filters? Does anyone
know of a reason not to do this?
I read somewhere that I might have problems with the IDBT feature if I don't go
with the Optional 2.0 Khz filter that Yaesu offers. I don't believe that INRAD
carries a replacement for this filter although they do have a 1.8 Khz and (I
believe) a 2.1 Khz filter. Is this really a problem and, if so, is there a way
to work around it?
On CW, I haven't seen anything that would indicate that I need to stay within
the Yaesu optional filter values. INRAD offers a nice 125 Hz filter for one of
the IF's (but not both) and this might be a good one to go with.
Since I am asking about filters, can anyone point me to a document that
explains "simply" what all the various filtering options are with this radio
and how to configure them? The manual doesn't seem to cover this topic very
Thanks and 73,
