USED FT-2000 HF/6m TXR, 100W, built-in PSU
Excellent condition, almost mint. Original box, hand mic, and cables, all in excellent condition. Original manual is in good shape with some wear. They are not making this radio any more, and this one has been very well kept!
The FT-2000 is the 2nd Generation in the proud lineage of the FTdx9000 Series! Featuring extensive DSP filtering, 100 Watts of power output, and a host of outstanding ergonomic and performance features, the FT-2000 is destined to be the centerpiece of your HF/50 MHz station!
- 160 - 6 Meter Coverage, 100 Watts of Power!
The FT-2000 provides a full 100 Watts of power output (AM: 25 W) on the 160-6 Meter Amateur bands, and the U.S. version includes a special memory bank containing the five 60-meter channels, as well. Continuous receiver coverage from 30 kHz to 60 MHz is provided. Note: frequency coverage may differ in your country.
- Extensive Receiver DSP Filtering!
The power of IF Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is yours to enjoy with the FT-2000. Variable IF Width and IF Shift allow precise interference rejection, and the receiver DSP also includes an Auto-Notch, Manual Notch, Digital Noise Reduction, and a continuously-variable passband Contour control. The WIDTH control has a mode-determined adjustment range of 200 Hz – 4 kHz for SSB, and 25 Hz to 2.4 kHz on CW, and a mode-optimized “Narrow” key provides one-touch narrowing of the bandwidth to a user-determined preset value.
- User-Adjustable Variable TX Bandwidth!
With the FT-2000, you have tremendous control over the fidelity and/or “talk power” of your SSB signal, thanks to the variable SSB bandwidth capability in the Menu. The default bandwidth is 2.4 kHz (300 – 2400 Hz @ -6 dB), but you also have selections of 50 – 3000 Hz, 100 – 2900 Hz, 200 – 2800 Hz, and 400 – 2600 Hz, allowing you to select the bandwidth best suiting your operating needs.
- 3-Band Parametric Microphone Equalizer!
The power of DSP also provides tremendous benefits for transmission, as well as reception. The Three-Band Parametric Microphone Equalizer allows unmatched capability to tailor your speech characteristics: in each of the three bands, you may adjust the center frequency of the equalization, the frequency spread over which the equalization is applied, and the amplitude (peaking or nulling) within that equalization range. The result is sparkling, clear audio that will be the envy of everyone else on the band!
- Outstanding Strong-Signal-Handling Capabilities Derived from the FTDX9000!
Following in the renowned path of the FTDX9000, the FT-2000 is crafted with a comprehensive design view that accounts for all aspects of the strong signal environment, and especially with optimization of weak-signal in a multiple-strong-signal environment. The receiver of the FT-2000 is a triple-conversion type, utilizing great care in the gain distribution through all IF stages. The first mixer is a GaAs FET Doubly-Balanced Mixer type, fed by a four-VCO PLL synthesizer (30 kHz – 10.5 MHz, 10.5 MHz – 24 MHz, 24 MHz – 39 MHz, and 39 MHz – 56 MHz). The resulting first IF is at 69.450 MHz, utilizing an up-conversion technique that yields excellent image rejection.
- FTDX9000-Lineage Triple Roofing Filter System for Crowded Bands (Main Band VFO)
The first IF of the FT-2000 features three roofing filters, I bandwidths of 15 kHz, 6 kHz, and 3 kHz, optimized by mode for best performance on today’s crowded bands. Especially useful during busy contest weekends, the Roofing Filters are positioned right after the first mixer, improving IP3 (3rd-Order Intercept Point) performance for all stages t
