FT-950 Elite-Class 100 W HF/50 MHz Transceiver
We proudly introduce the elite-class HF/50MHz transceiver FT-950 providing exceptional performance both on transmit and receive. The FT-950 is designed for the most competitive operating situations, whether you primarily operate in contest, DX, or digital-mode environments. The FT-950 comes complete with its own Antenna Tuner.
Built on the foundation of the popular FTDX9000 transceiver, and carrying the proud tradition of the FT-1000
series, the FT-950 provides up to 100 Watts of power output on SSB, CW, and FM (25 Watts AM carrier). Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is utilized throughout the design, providing leading-edge performance, both transmit and receive.
The Data Management Unit (DMU-2000) is available as an option for the FT-950. It provides extensive display capabilities via a user-supplied computer monitor. Included are Band Scope, Audio Scope, X-Y Oscilloscope, World Clock, Rotator Control, extensive Transceiver Status Displays, and Station Logging Capability.
For exceptional protection from strong signal interference, optional RF μ-Tuning Kits may be connected via the rear panel. The μ-Tuning Kits provide extraordinarily sharp selectivity, and protect your receiver from close-in interference on a crowded band.
In the front end, you may select one of two RF preamplifiers, or IPO (Intercept Point Optimization) providing direct feed to the first mixer. Three levels of RF attenuation are available in 6-dB steps.
The FT-950 receiver utilizes DSP filtering, incorporating many of the features of the FTDX9000, such as, Variable Bandwidth, IF Shift, and Passband Contour tuning. Also provided are Digital Noise Reduction, Digital Auto-Notch Filtering and a manually tuned IF Notch filter.
On the transmit side, the Yaesu-exclusive Three-Band Parametric Microphone Equalizer allows precise and flexible adjustment of the waveform created by your voice and microphone. The Amplitude, Center Frequency, and Bandwidth are adjusted separately for the low, mid-range, and high-frequency audio spectra. The transmitted bandwidth may also be adjusted.
Advanced features include: Direct Keyboard Frequency Entry and Band Change, Speech Processor, IF Monitor for Voice modes, CW Pitch control, CW Spot switch, Full CW QSK, adjustable IF Noise Blanker, and all-mode Squelch. Two TX/RX antenna ports are provided on the rear panel. Front and rear panel key jacks are provided to allow the operator to set the radio up to his or her own ease of operation. The key jacks may be configured independently for paddle input, connection to a straight key, or computer-driven keying interface. The CW Message Memory is provided.
Frequency setup is straightforward on the FT-950. Enter frequency selection directly for both VFO-A and VFO-B. Separate keys are provided for band selection. Each band key provides three separate VFO settings for three different parts of each band. You can establish three independent VFO settings of frequency, mode, and filter for each band.
In addition, 100 memories are provided to store: Frequency, Mode, IF filter selection, Clarifier offset, and Scan-skip status. What’s more, five quick-recall (“QMB”) memories can instantly store operational settings at the push of a button.
The built-in Antenna Tuner includes 100 memories that automatically store antenna matching settings for rapid automatic recall later.
Interfacing for digital modes is extremely simple with the FT-950, thanks to the dedicated RTTY/PKT connection jack on the rear panel. Optimization of the filter pass-band, DSP settings, carrier insertion point, and display offset for digital modes is possible via the Menu programming system.
