[Yaesu] FT-1000MP 160M Spurious
Wed, 6 Nov 1996 13:37:52 -0500
Saw my friendly YAESU Dealer today. They checked the FT-1000MP
Indeed they found them. Another brandnew unit from stock produced exactly
the same spuriouses.
They called various european YAESU reps to get advice. The outcome was:
YAESU is aware of the problem. However they claim the spurious is attenuated
well enough. There is NO FIX on hand to improve the situation.
Again: Using the FT-1000MP in the range of 1820-1827 produces spurs which
be heard all over Europe. Other FT-1000MP owners have reported the same.
The dealer about said:
Use low power not to interfere with others and burry the antenna 2 feet
below ground level or better, get rid of the FT-1000MP and buy Kenwood.
When I asked for his opinion of the FT-1000D he said that Yaesu had stopped
making it. Only rest of stock is sold...
Which radio should one buy if you like 160m and QSK-CW?
