FTDX1200 by YAESU MUSEN CO., LTD Higashi-Shinagawa, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo Japan – FCC Part15B Class B already approved: ID K6620581X50 – 09.04.2013. – FTdx-1200 & FTdx-3000 (WxHxD): 14.4″ x 4.5″ x 12.3″ / 365 x 115 x 312 mm (Click the pictures to enlarge)
FTdx-1200 intuitive operability with the new Display & Panel layouts. The VFO-A & VFO-B frequency and status are displayed only on the main TFT Display. The trasmit and receive status, and the “basic” VFO-a, VFO-B settings and FAST or LOCK settings are displayed in the high contrast display above the Main Dial (dial using machined aluminium parts with torque adjistment).
The Band Scope can be switched to FULL-screen display by simply pressing the Scope key, and spectrum can be viewed on the Full TFT Color screen! – Now the most important meters amd frequency examination, are displayed in central view!
The PA-Unit amplifier, which has 2 x RD100HHF1 MOS FET’s in a Push-pull configuration with power level of 100W. – The aluminum used for the die cast has high thermal conductivity and lowers the heat resistance (see the Yaesu brochure!) – A large 60 mm axial flow fan is placed a the side of the PA & ATU Unit’s. – The FTdx-1200 ATU (Automatic Antenna Tuner) is the digital type that uses LC switchinh
The IF DSP using the 32-bit floating point DSP, TMS320C6727B at a clock speed of 300 MHz similar to the FTdx-5000 and FTdx-3000 series. – The 1st IF frequency is now set at 40 MHz (Up-conversion) and is protected by selectable 3 kHz, 6 kHz and 15 kHz Roofing Filters. – Yeasu writes in the brochure (page 5): IDR (IMD Dynamic range) 104dB / IP3 (3rd-Order IP) +31dBm at 14MHz Band CW (BW=500Hz) Roofing Filter = 3kHz @ 10kHz Separation two-tone signal ANT Imput (dBm).
Optional SCU-17 USB Interface Unit ! Can be connected to a PC with a USB cable, the SCU-17 USB Interface supports: External control (CAT), USB Audio IN/OUT, TX control (PTT, KEY, SHIFT), and Firmware update functions. (CAT is possible via the RS.232 without SCU-17).
Optional FFT-Unit adds AF-FFT (Audio Frequency Fast Fourier Trasform) scope function demonstrates the AF characteristics of the TX/RX signal. , RTTY/PSK31 Encode/Decode, CW Decode and CW Auto Zero-in.
