FTdx-3000 Utilizes a new innovative and easy menu settings system and a new 4.3-inch wide color LCD displays the operating information and the status of the transceiver functions selected. (now… like Icom inc.)
To enter into SET MENU mode, simply press the [MENU] button and turn the [CLAR/VFO-B] knob to scroll Up or Down your desired Menu number displayed on the Main LCD and access to many settings and speeds up the operation.
The layout settings [MENU-1] are very fine and offer a nice array of features for the operator. The directional arrows (keypad) and [SELECT] button help you with quick and intuitive access to settings. (please click the picture to enlarg) -
These systems have been newly developed by Yaesu Musen Co., LTD with new substantial design changes, compared to previous devices under the Vertex Standard Inc. Brand! – I have to commend Yaesu Musen Co. for coming up with such an innovative and easy approach.
In Dayton and Friedrichshafen Expo as you can see the buttons [VFO B/A] are reversed! than usual [VFO A/B] – Now in Tokyo Ham Fair these buttons to select the two VFO have been reported in the usual position: [VFO A/B]
The Main operating frequency is the most important in the radio display, with [VFO-A] frequency located just above the Main dial. The [VFO-B] frequency can be displayed on the 4.3-inch color LCD display (left). - For the [MODE] change (USB LSB CW RTTY etc.) you have a single button with sequential selection or via Memory channels!

FTdx-3000 Receiver is double conversion, with the first IF at 9 MHz and the second DSP IF at 30 kHz for SSB and CW and 24 kHz for AM and FM modes (like FTdx-5000′s) but the 1st mixer is different from the 1st mix used in the 5000′ series (8x3SK294 !) (see the picture)
Independent Frequency display although the FTDX-3000 has only one receiver; the rig uses dual VFOs, essential for split operation. General coverage receive is available from 30 kHz to 56 MHz.
On the rear panel Signal are furnished: Output for an external receiver and the 9 MHz IF output and two connectors for optional u-tune unit … etc. (see picture)

Digital System: GMSK 4.8kbps digital voice (DV) mode and 128kbps data (*) (DD) mode communications are available. When using DD mode with a PC and the D-STAR® radio, high speed data communication is possible. (*) DD mode (128 kbps) is available with Icom ID-1 only at this time.
In DV mode operation, you can simultaneously send up to 950 bps of data, such as call sign, short data message or GPS position (DPRS) with a voice transmission.
When you communicate with other D-STAR® stations using a D-STAR® Repeater, it is ncessary to set repeater’s call sign in RPT1/RPT2.

Opera is still in Beta test, the latest version is V.1.8.8 (Download from Link below!!) – The new “Opera” Single carrier Data/Beacon mode Tx/Rx, is created by EA5HVK, Jose Alberto Nieto Ros, by request of GØNBD for Ham Radio CW Community – This software, complete windows compatible Tx/Rx package with internet spotting and chat facility, COM-port keying and audio tx drive, is free!
Opera QRSS. Il nuovo software sviluppato da EA5HVK, Jose Ros su idea iniziale di GØNBD, si utiilizza per comunicazioni CW standard QRSS per segnali deboli, anche immersi nel rumore e con potenze QRP. – Opera è simile al già noto WSPR/JT45, ma con propri algoritmi in ambiente DSP e codifica tipo OOK (On Off Keying), con selezione di tempi di intervallo da 1 a 60′ e in più altre novità in evoluzione. – Infatti è ancora in Versione Beta, V.1.8.8 – [Nota] Anche gli spots di Opera si possono seguire in tempo reale sui sistemi automatici: PSKreporter e Hamspots.com (vedere Link)
The new software “Opera” Beta, developed by EA5HVK, Jose Ros (author of the now established ROS Data mode!) using DSP techniques, it’s a alternative QRSS for weak signal experiments on 136 & 500 kHz and for HF all bands (80 to 10 mt) for Ver. 1.1.2 up – Better than standard QRSS, similar like WSPR, but with Opera you can choose your own interval time between 1 and 60 minutes.
CAT Link embodied and Tx by COM port Key or Audio drive Tx\Rx COM port switch faclity – Decoder are possible with S/N – 26 to -38 dB (Rx speed auto-selected!) The spots are visible in near realtime to interested parties with PSKreporter and Hamspots.com (see the links) – This as a way of providing data operations for stations that only had the CW capability. The most up to date information on this mode can be found at groups.yahoo.com (see the link up)
R&S®M3TR Software Defined Radios (Front panel on the image) – The new software Ver.7.0 supports third-generation Automatic Link Establishment (ALE 3G)* in line with the STANAG 4538 NATO standard. If a shortwave consumer receiver could do what this shortwave milspec transceiver hi!!
The heart of the new integrated communications system is the lightweight R&S®MR300xH/U manpack transceiver (1.5 MHz to 108 MHz or 25 MHz to 512 MHz), which offers solutions for all aspects of tactical communications - New Software Makes Rohde & Schwarz Shortwave Radios As Easy To Use As IP Phones -
Last-ditch voice enables reliable voice transmission even when the noise is stronger than the voice signal, ie with a negative signal-to-noise ratio. - The quality of shortwave links heavily depends on ambient transmission conditions such as solar radiation and atmospheric ionization – The software automatically adjusts the transmission rate to accommodate prevailing conditions. – Release 7.0 of the software also features the high throughput data link (HDL) protocol that allows transmission rates of up to 10 kbit/s under optimal conditions.
ALE 3G * - The latest ALE standard uses accurate time synchronization via GPS-locked clocks or a time server to achieve faster and more dependable linking. – It is generally known as 3rd generation or 3G ALE.

PropNET PSK network. IW0SAF, Moreno Momi ARI Perugia, captured by a member of the PropNET project! – See the Link below
IW0SAF, Moreno è attivo in HF e non solo, opera anche nei modi digitali come è il PSK31 nel suo eccellente Shack, dotato di ottimi apparati ed accessori. Qui si nota il suo recente IC-7700 molto adatto e performante anche nelle comunicazioni Digitali RTTY e PSK31 con e senza computer
Nell’IC-7700 il modulatore e demodulatore Boudot RTTY e PSK31 (Ecoder/ Decoder basati sul DSP) sono entrocontenuti, ed è capace di operare in RTTY e PSK31 con il collegamento diretto di una Tastiera (alla porta USB) senza la necessità di utilizzare un Computer esterno.
Collegando, invece, ad un Personal Compuer con tastiera, le operazioni in RTTY e in PSK31 ed altri modi digitali possono essere anche eseguite con un apposito software esterno, installato nel Computer. Nel caso è il MixW multimode software (V2.18). I collegamenti trà PC e RTX di Moreno avvengono tramite l’interfaccia “microHAM USB Interface II ™”
Baudot RTTY and PSK31 modulator/demodulator (DSP-based encoder/ decoder) is builtin to the IC-7700 and direct keyboard connection capability (port-USB) for RTTY and PSK31 operations without a Personal Computer. Connecting a Personal Compuer and keyboard, RTTY and PSK31 operation can be performed with MixW multimode software installed and “microHAM USB Interface II™” connected from PC and RTX.
IW0SAF, 13.03.2009 received this Mail by KF6XA:
Recently a PSK31 CQ transmission of yours was automatically captured by a member of the PropNET project.
PropNET is a system for analyzing and recording HF and VHF circuit quality.
It uses a distributed network of PSK31 stations automatically transmitting and receiving messages and reporting them to a central database, where real-time displays and statistical analyses are generated. We’re interested in real-time propagation detection and long-term analysis of circuit usability, and other interesting uses that the combination of radio and computers can facilitate. You’re obviously interested in digital modes and computers … please………

[Nota]: IT – Per la partecipazione al progetto PropNET è richiesto l’utilizzo di un software (PropNETPSK – Relesase: 188.8.131.52 Update: January 26, 2009) Scaricare liberamente sia il software sia la User-Guide sul sito web ufficiale di cui ai link qui sopra.
PropNET PSK analizza e registra in HF e VHF la qualità della popagazione in tempo reale con report e displays via internet dei segnali PSK . Lo scopo principale del progetto PropNET è sviluppare un sistema avvanzato dedicato al Servizio Automatico di Controllo nell’area Digitale. PropNET ha un codice PHG che è in realtà una stringa PHGDRA/code (include nell’ordine: Potenza, Altezza, Gain, Directivity, Rate, Altezza).
In pratica, PropNET opera in modo molto simile ad APRS (http://www.aprs.net). Come l’APRS le stazioni PropNET formano una rete per la condivisione delle informazioni, proprio come in una tavola rotonda in SSB. Ciò significa che le norme che disciplinano PropNET possono essenzialmente essere le stesse di quelle che disciplinano l’APRS nei vari paesi.
