A good friend of mine in JA has found out that it is possible to
add bandpass filters of FT1000D to the FT1000MP, allowing
concurrent cross-band receive in the FT1000MP. Masa, JO2AJT,
obtained this information from the noted-below Yaesu Web page in
Japan, and he translated it to english.
I've quoted his translation below, along with the original
postings that motivated the research.
I don't have any further information about this, and I don't
have a FT1000MP so I don't have any more information about this.

It is OK for you to post this information to mailing list.
