Subject: [CQ-Contest] FTDX5000 Firmware Upgrade

Thanks to neighbor N6TA, I've been able to measure the occupied bandwidth
of the Yaesu FTDX5000 before and after implementation of Yaesu's September
2014 firmware upgrade. The results of the upgrade are quite positive -- the
original FTDX5000 tested by ARRL Labs was pretty awful, close to the worst
of all modern rigs. My measurements are documented in the link below. If
you own one of these rigs, you owe it to your neighbors to do the upgrade.
It's still nowhere near as clean as a K3, but it's a lot less awful. :)
