21.07.2011 Yaesu Fix QSK con Ver.537 EDSP e 0119 Main — Test di VE3MSC, Colin Haig – Qth: Milton, Ontario CA – [Source] : http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Yaesu_FT-5000/
Tokyo and US engineering teams has been trying to improve the CW QSK Full or Semi-breakin operations of the FTDX5000. There have been concerns expressed on the Yahoo FTdx5000 Group about the dot and space ratio (..1.1.) and timing of the CW characters.
I team di ingegneri a Tokyo e in Usa con il rilascio del MAIN Ver.0121 del 29.09.2011, migliorano il tempo di risposta dei segnali per lo Spectrum Scope quando i comandi [VRF] o [µTUNE] sono ON !
In precedenza hanno cercato di migliorare l’operatività in CW sia in QSK Full o Semi-breakin dello stesso FTDX5000. Nel Gruppo di discussione Yahoo molti utilizzatori sostengono che siano state….. segue… > (continua…)

FTdx-5000 Series coming soon in Italy – June, 2010 in Italia il Transceiver HF 50MHz 200W, lo ha annunciato Yaesu Italia/ ICAL Spa – Official Importer and distributor Vertex Standard Yaesu.
FTdx-5000MP arrived in US. One of the first exemplary, probably assigned to who have classified the order, arrived in US on 27 Feb. 2010. .Dick K6GAK – See more info, Link and Photo..

The FTdx-5000 HF/50 MHz Transceiver has a new architecture!
Circuit Type: VFO-A Double-conversion superheterodyne – VFO-B Triple-conversion superheterodyne – Inrmediate IF’s: VFO-A 9 MHZ/30 kHz (24 kHz for AM/FM) – VFO-B 40.455 MHz/455 kHz/30 kHz (24 kHz for AM/FM)
The Main RX (VFO A) is a two-stage down-conversion design – Yaesu engineers take the down-conversion architecture, only for Main RX A, with narrow ham-band filtering for superior close-in dynamic range. – (Like K3 Elecraft and Orion II Ten-Tec – …US made!)
See The list prices for Japan market in the CQ ham radio n. 1/2010, and on the Tomei Denshi Co., Ltd. Jp website – See The retail prices for US released on 01/10/2010!!
The Version MP has been FCC approved on 01/29/2010 – FCC id: K6620361X61 – The FTdx5000 had been FCC approved on 12/11/2009 – FCC id: K6620361X60…
See List prices Japan and retail US, update now and more… (continua…)
FTdx-5000 Has the FCC Certificate, ID: K6620361X60, receved December 10, 2009!
That Was Fast….. will be bringing out very soon!
The Main RX (VFO A) is a two-stage down-conversion design 9 MHz first IF and 30kHz second IF . – Yaesu engineers take the down-conversion architecture with narrow ham-band filtering for superior close-in dynamic range. – (Like K3 Elecraft and Orion II Ten-Tec, see the [Note] below!)
The sub RX (VFO B) is not the same! It is a three stage Up-conversion design. The 40.455MHz first IF stage feature 3 roofing filter 15, 6, 3kHz. Each roofinf is a four-pole, monolithic crystal filter (like FT-2000, FT-950). This Sub RX uses a new subdisplay with two EL (Eltro Luminesense) to indicate Sub frequency, graphical wave and menu functions. One EL functions is dedicated at the Main RX.
[Note] Like Orion II IFs: Main Receiver IF1=9 MHz, IF2=455 kHz, IF3=14 kHz (IMD3 101 dB IP3 +24 dBm @ 5kHz) – The Sub Receiver is not the same! IF1=45 MHz, IF2=455 kHz, IF3=14 kHz (+5 dBm @ 20kHz.
See the Some more RX information and the Links below. Here are some more pictures and the EN User Manual (Part 1/Part 2) in PDF….
FTdx-5000 Series – The new Yaesu HF/50 MHz 200W Transceiver: FTdx-5000MP, FTdx-5000D, FTdx-5000 and the SM-5000 Station Monitor.
The Yaesu FT DX 5000 Series will be formally introduced by Yaesu very soon. Pricing and availability is currently unknown (www.radiocronache…23.11.2009)
!!! FTdx-5000 by Yaesu Broshure: 14 MHz band 2kHz offset 105 dB 3rd-IMD, IP3 +36 dBm, way better than the Elecraft K3 @ 102 dB IP3 +26 dBm!
The FTdx-5000 (Main Receiver only) includes a rather traditional 1st IF 9 MHz (Elecraft K3 1st IF 8,215 MHz) and provides for selectable roofing filters (6-pole crystal) at the first IF to limit the off-frequency signals getting into the receiver.
Note that the roofing filter’s job is only to protect the rest of the receiver, and that the operating bandwidth filtering is performed by the IF DSP (like Elecraft K3 Transceiver).
