For the sake of the archives, here's a corollary to the earlier replies.
Having now had a chance to look at a 1990-vintage manual for the FT-1000,
there's a section entitled 'Changing the mains transformer primary winding
for different AC voltages' on page 5. Above it is a section on power
connection, which amongst other things gives the mains fuse capacities for
100-117V (15A) and 200-234V (8A). Curiously, there isn't a specification as
such with this manual but I don't know anywhere in the world that uses
200-234V supplies with a 60Hz supply frequency, so it seems reasonable to
assume that the transformer is specified with both 50 and 60Hz  operation in

So unless the later models are substantially different, it would seem that
we can put this one to bed.
