[Yaesu] Info about FT900
Fri, 22 Nov 1996 18:58:13 +0000
Yes; the FT-890 and 900 use just about the same RF boards. The
difference is the user interface. Yeasu had good luck with the '890
so it looks like they decided to expand on a good thing. The Collins
filter gives the radio a different sound. What you are NOT hearing
are noise pulses ringing in a cystal filter. The odd way of turning
off the display is noted here too. I suspecet it's how the CPU
catches the front panel CPU during the scan cycle. Looks to be a
nice radio. Hope you are enjoying it. David. WA0ZZG

> Hi all:
> I have the FT-900 and I seem that the Collins filter makes really a difference. Does anybody have some experience on this? . Also, I noticed that the circuit is almost identical to the FT-890.
> s the FT-900 really better than FT-890 ?.
> Sometimes when I turn off the radio, the display lasts for about 100 ms turned ON but with low intensity. This is normal?.
