Topband: Re: FT-1000mp MK V
Sun, 16 Sep 2001 22:24:13 -0400
The MP does a yeoman's job suppressing BCB problems. Virtually every other
rig I've had in the shack has suffered. I've just brought an FT-1000 into
the shack and it's side-by-side with the MP. With the Beverage feeding the
FT-1000, problems start as soon as I tune up past 1800Khz. 1800-2000Khz
sounds like the AM broadcast band, with "stations" every 10Khz. With the
MP, the garbage is held below 1800. As soon as I tune up past 1800, no more
problems. Yaesu added some great front end filtering in the MP.
"Just a very important observation from this morning on 160M using my new MK
V. With my old TS-940 I needed to add 10DB attenuation or a BC filter to
kill the bc stations overload (S-Mtr pinned) at my QTH. With the MK V no bc
overlaod is noted"
