Yaesu FTDX-3000D (*), FT-950, FT-2000 Transceivers: the firmware upgrades are available from the end of February 2013 (02/25/2013 YAESU USA website – before downloading, please read the Yaesu original “Important Notes”!) – See the summary informations, the links, the new Video “Probando el notch, contour, nb, ipo (amp), width, r.filters, ect.” and pictures below !
Yaesu FTdx-3000D Firmware, new update Main CPU Ver. 0111 and TFT Ver. 0106 flash programming for the Transceiver. !!! (*) Note: FTdx-3000D now update Main Ver. 0112 03/29/2013 see the new page radiocronache >link)
Before installing new firmware, please verify your current version firmware with the following procedure:
(1st) press and hold the [POWER] key to turn ON the Transceiver, (2nd) while pressing and holding the [SCOPE] key, [GEN] key.  key, and [ENT] key on the FTDX-3000 front panel. The versions of each firmware will be displayed on the TFT main screen.
[Note] The rig has to be started in different ways for each of these two updates to work! The Yaesu “Firmware Upgrade Manual” (PDF) has the update procedure for all of the Firmware-modules (MAIN .SFL – DSP .dat – TFT .bin – FFT .dat), and for all Trasfer-softwares (!! FSW018 – FW-DSP – TFW – FW-FFT !!) not just the two module updates we got, so save that PDF file for future use!
[Note] Improvements etc. Ver. 0111 MAIN CPU and Ver. 0106 TFT
* Correct minor bug and implement improvements
* MENU #104 SSB TX BPF now includes 3000WB
* When VFO is in LOCK during split operation, holding the TXW button will permit tuning the VFO frequency. – (*) to see also new firmware Ver.0112 (03/29/2013 link below)
L’ultima voce dovrebbe consentire ora di bloccare sì il VFO (esempio A), ma adesso si permette in modo SPLIT (tenendo premuto il tasto TXW) di sintonizzare ancora il VFO (esempio il B), … una buona cosa quando si sta cercando di ascoltare le stazioni chiamanti nel Pile-Up … ora questo sarà di aiuto all’operatore ! (*) risoluzione di ulteriori problemi con il Firmware V.0112 (29.3.13) il link e più sopra.
