YAESU FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D): High-performance Receiver Design utilizing
System-wide Gain and Intercept Balancing
• Triple-conversion Receiver
Design with Optimized Stage Balance
Designed with the same amphasis on efficiency as used with a transmitter, the receiver design of the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D) is centered around optimization of each stage's gain, intercept, and selectivity.
The triple-conversion design features a 1st IF of 69.45 MHz, a 2nd IF of 450 kHz, and a 3rd
IF of 30 kHz (FM: 24 kHz), and each stage's advanced filtering protects the stages to follow from unwanted signal voltage, leading to a quiet, ultra-robust receiver with impeccable total system performance.
• Robust Receiver Front End
The RF amplifier stage is designed for low and high intercept, utilizing two
strong serioes-connected 2SC3356 bipolar transistors with negative feedback
for consistent, repeatable performance. The front-panel IPO switch lets you
select direct feed to the first mixer (IPO), Preamp 1, or Preamp 2 (which adds
the second preamplifier stage in series), according to the antenna in use and
the noise and interference conditions present at the time. The low noise figure
and carefully-controlled stage gains ensures that only the precise amount of
gain needed is actually utilized. IPO (Intercept Point Optimization) is the
function which allows you to set the total front end gain, so as to optimize
RF stage performance.
The ultra-strong first mixer of the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D) features SPM5001
FETs in an active, doubly-balanced configuration optimized for a multi-signal environment. The active design results
in no loss in the mixer circuit, often eliminating the need for preamplification prior to direct
feed of received signals to the first mixer.
• Dual Receive (In-band) Featuring Independent IF Strips
The sub receiver of the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D) is an analog type, with a completely
independent IF section so that strong signals appearing on the main
receiver do not affect signals on the sub receiver. This brings you the true benefits
of dual receive operation. The IF passband of the sub
receiver may be varied between 2,4 kHz and 1,1 kHz, and an optional
Collins Mechanical Filter of 500 Hz (YF-122C) or 300 Hz (YF-122CN)
may be added, for sharper selectivity on CW.
• Variable RF Preselector (VRF) Covers the 1.8-28 MHz Amateur Bands
To provide protection for the RF stages, as well as the three IF stages,
the front end filtering system utilizes a combination of twelve fixed bandpass
filters and Yaesu's exclusive VRF (Variable RF) Preselector system. These
two RF filter systems protect the early stages of the receiver from overload
caused by strong out-of-band signals.
The high-Q VRF system, much narrower in bandwidth than the fixed bandpass
filters, are crafted using high-permeability toroidal coils (T-80 and T-37
type) and tuning capacitors, producing 44 tuning steps for optimal of broadcast
or commercial-service interference. The robust circuit design utilizer expensive
sealed surface-mount relays, capable of sustaining surges of up to 2500 Volts
down the antenna line. The center frequency of the VRF is manually adjustable,
allowing you to skew the filter response for maximum rejection of the undesired
• First IF 3 kHz Roofing Filter is Factory Installed
The 69.450 first IF of the FT-2000 features three roofing filters, in bandwidths
of 15 kHz, 6 kHz, and 3 kHz, optimized by mode for best performance on today's
crowded bands. Each roofing filter is a four-pole, fundamental-mode monolithic
crystal filter design to produce excellent shape factor.
Especially useful during busy contest weekends, the roofing filters are positioned
right after the first mixer, improving IP3 (3rd-Order Intercept Point) performance
for all stages that follow.
• High-speed Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) and 200 MHz High-spec Digital
PLL for Outstanding Local Oscillator Performance
In seeking to improve the strong-signal-handling capabilities of the receiver section, in a multi-signal environment, the YAESU design
team has developed a high-spec, ultra-low-noise local oscillator system that
produces a very clean first IF signal.
The high Carrier-to-Noise (C/N) ratio of the 200 MHz high-speed digital PLL is the
result of very fast lock time, because the local design does not entail the use of a
prescaler but rather locks directly on the 1st local frequency.
As a result, the spurious-free dynamic range and close-in blocking performance are substantially enhanced.
YAESU FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D): Unlock the Secrets of the Low Bands
• Fully-automatic External u-Tuning Ultra-sharp Preselector (option) features 1.1" (28mm) Coil for High Q
On the lower Amateur bands, the signal voltages impinging on a
receiver can create noise and Intermodulation effects that can cover up
weak signals you're trying to pull through. So YAESU's engineers
developed the u (Mu) Tuning system for the FTdx 9000, and it's now
available as an option for the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D). Three modules are available
(MTU-160, MTU-80/40, MTU-30/20), and these modules may be connected
externally with no iternal modification required!
When u-Tuning is engaged, the VRF system is bypassed, but the fixed
Bandpass Filters are still in the received signal path.
The u-Tuning filters utilize a stack of large 1.1" (28mm) Ni-Zn Ferrite
cores, driven through a silver-plated coil assembly by a precision
stepper motor. The resulting high Q (typically over 300) provides a
very steep resonance peak near your operating frequency. The typical 160-meter bandwidth,
at -3dB, is +-12 kHz, and at -30 dB the bandwidth is typically +-450 kHz. The
peak may be adjusted away from your frequency, for even greater protection from a specific station, and
a graphical depiction of the u-Tune filter alignment appears on the front panel of the transceiver.
And, within the u-Tune passband, the 3rd order Intercept Point is increased by 4 dB.
The ferrite cores utilized in the u-Tune filters are
driven by a high-resolution, high torque stepper motor (4-phase inupolar
motor/2-phase magnetization system) with angular resolution of 1.-8°, and the synchro
belt drive has an estimated lifetime of 10,000 hours of actual operation.
for 160-meter operation, the ferrite core diameter is 2.2" (55 mm), and
on all modules the u-Tune system tracks your operating frequency,
although you can manually skew the frequency response when special interference conditions require it.
If you the u-Tune system off, just a press of the (VRF) switch will re-engage the u-Tune system,
re-centering the u-Tune filter on your current operating frequency.
• Quick Split Feature
Pressing the (SPLIT) key for two seconds or more engages the "Quick Split" feature
, which automatically separates the receive and transmit
frequencies by 5 kHz (the TX frequency will be 5 kHz higher). For
other Split operating situations, just press the combination LED/switches near each VFO dial to set the VFOs as
you want them,
• Tracking Feature
During Split operation, you may command the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D) to operate in a
"Tracking" mode whereby the Sub VFO frequency tracks the frequency change on the Main VFO, maintaining a constant split between the two
frequencies. you can even do "Band Tracking" whereby you can cause both bands to vhange simultaneously, using this feature.
• TXW (Transmit Frequency Watch) Feature
When operating Split, pressing the (TXW) key instantly
lets you receive on your transmit frequency, to hear activity in the pile-up
you are working to break through.
• Preset NARROW Switch
While the WIDTH control is generally used for setting of the IF DSP
bandwidth, a one-touch (NARROW) key is provided, allowing you instantaneous access to a
narrower than the default value on
the current operating mode. For SSB, for example, where the default
bandwidth is 2400 Hz, you have "Narrow" selections available of
1500/1650/1800/1950/2100/2250 Hz, while on CW, "Narrow" selections of 25/50/100/200/300/400/500/800/1400/1700/2000 Hz
are available. So, for example, you can set up "Narrow" bandwidths of 1.8 kHz for SSB, 500 Hz for CW, and 300 Hz for RTTY
and PSK operation. What's more, for AM Broadcast operation, you may use the (NARROW) key to toggle between bandwidths of 6 kHz
and 9 kHz, depending on interference.
• IF Noise Blanker
The IF Noise Blanker is ideal for suppression of automotive ignition
noise, and it may be utilized in conjunction with the Digital Noise
Reduction system, or by itself. A front-panel Noise Blanker gain control
allows precies control of the blanking level to be applied, and
both wide and narrow pulse noises may be suppressed using this feature.
• Sloped AGC Feature
During certain conditions whereby both weak and strong signals are
being encountered, a "flat" AGC response (whereby signals above a
certain level are all clamped so as to produce the same audio output) may not be optimal.
So the FT-2000 menu lets you select a traditional "flat" response or a "Sloped" response, whereby louder signals are allowed
to rise up to a slightly higher level than are
weak signals, thereby allowing you to use your brain to discriminate
between signals according to
signal strength, not just frequency characteristics. This provides superior
signal recognition during contest pile-up operating situations.
YAESU FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D): A CW Enthusiast's Dream Come True
• CW Zero-in Feature
With the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D), you can use both your ears and your eyes to zero in
on another CW atation. The sidetone generated when you transmit
(as set by the CW Pitch selection, with a range of 300-1050 Hz), allows you to match that pitch to that of an incoming signal perfectly. As you
tune closer and closer to that pitch, the CW Tuning Indicator provides a
graphical depiction of the tuning process, with a marker lighting up
when the incoming signal is precisely aligned with yours.
• CW Spot Feature
The CW SPOT switch engages a spotting tone that matches
the offset of your transmitted signal (as set by
the CW Pitch selection), allowing you to match that pitch to that of an
incoming signal perfectly. The CW pitch frequency will be shown while
pressing the "SPOT" switch.
There's no more accurate way to be sure you're exactly

• Contest-ready Antenna
The Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000,FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D)
is designed with today's fast-moving contest operator in
mind. Two TX/RX antenna jacks are provided on the read panel, along with one
RX-only jack, with one-touch access to any antenna.
The antenna selection is memorized in each VFO
and memory channel register, so you don't need
to switch antennas when changing VFOs-the radio
remembers which antenna you last used on that
band or memory! And, if you have a special bandpass
or other filter you want to engage, "In" and
"Out" javks for the RX-only path are
• Built-in TCXO for State-of-the-Art Stability
A highly-stable Temperature-Compensated
Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) is built into every FT-2000, providing 0.5
ppm stability at room temperature, and better than 1 ppm stability over an ambient
temperature range of 14 to 122 deg F (-10 to +50 deg C), making the FT-2000
ideal for your PSK31, EME or other applications requiring high stability.
• "My Bands" Feature
In order to increase operating
efficiency, you may use the Menu system to command the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT-2000, FT2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D) to skip over
any Amateur bands on which you do not operate (because you don't have an antenna
for that band, etc.). For example, for contest operation, you do not need to
use the 10/18/24 MHz bands, so you may eliminate them from the band stepping
sequence, if you like.
• CS Key
The CS (Custom Selection) key, located below and to the left of the Main tuning
Dial, lets you select any Menu item for one-touch access via the CS key.
This lets you bring up your favorite Menu item without having to scroll through
the many available Menu selections.
Variable IF WIDTH and IF SHIFT Interference-reduction
The IF Shift system is
highly effective for removing interference. While leaving the pitch of the incoming
signal unchanged, as well as the bandwidth of the IF passband, the IF Shift system
allows you to vary the passband higher or lower in frequency, eliminating interference
that you tune outside the passband. The IF Shift control is concentric with the
IF WIDTH control the passband maybe reduced to as little as 25 Hz on CW/RTTY/PSK,
or 200 Hz on SSB. What's more, if you like to listen in a wider bandwidth for
greater fidelity on SSB, the SSB bandwidth may be Expanded to 4000 Hz by simply
rotating the IF Width control clockwise.
|• Passband Response Contour Control with an Analog Touch
The incredibly sharp "brick wall"
filters of the IF DSP system can expose characteristics of incoming signals that you've never heard before,
not all of them pleasant to listen to. But, using the Contour control, you can roll off low-fraquency or high-frequency components so as to shape the
receiver passband differently, or null out part of the mid-range area, with continuous
adjustment throughout the passband. By nulling
out interfering or irrelevant frequency components, the desired frequency components are allowed to rise out
of the background noise, improving fidelity and signal-to-noise ratio.
Manual IF Notch and Beat-reducing Automatic Digital Notch Filter (DNF)
The IF Notch features very high Q, producing a deep notching effect
typically in excess of 70 dB. Using the Menu mode, either a "Wide" or "Narrow" notch
filter can be selected, depending on the interference profile you are encountering.
To aid in tuning such a high-Q filter with precision, concentric (COARSE)
and (FINE) tuning controls for the IF Notch are provided, yielding the ability
to adjust the Notch filter precisely yet effortlessly.
And, for reduction of multiple carriers within the passband, the DSP Auto
Notch (DNF) filter may be engaged, independently from tne manual Notch
DSP Digital Noise Reduction

found on competing products. With a 50% reduction, you get double
the speed; with reduction to 30% of the original sweep, you will get a 3X increase
in speed, and by reducing the bandwidth to 10% you get a whopping
10X increase in the sweep
speed. You can use the "<-" and "->" keys to move the remaining window, as desired.
Scope/Oscilloscope Display Page
When you have connected your after-market monitor to the DMU-2000 the Audio
Scope and Oscilloscope "page" of the display may be the most-used
capability of the Data Management Unit.
Audio Scope portrays the audio spectrum of either the receiver passband or
your transmitted signal, allowing you to visualize the frequency components
as you hear them. Then you can make adjustments to, for example, the Notch
Filter, Contour control or (on transmit) the Parametric Microphone Equalizer.
At the same time, you may use the Oscilloscope to look at the X-Y characteristics
of an incoming signal, with variable level and sweep speed. The Audio Scope
also includes a two-speed "waterfall" display that is very useful
for precise tuning of digital signals, or for Notch Filter adjustments.
World Clock Page
The World Clock page includes a world map with entries
for a number of locations throughout the world, so you can know
what the time of day is anywhere. Of great usefulness to DXers
is the Sunrise/Sunset
depiction, which shows the "Gray
area where propagation frequently in enhanced. An alarm feature is also
included, to alert you of a schedule time.
The Rotator Control page lets you control the left/right rotation
of your Yaesu G-800/1000/2800DXA
series rotator, in addition to permitting speed control and setup
of preset beam headings. And, if you use your after-market keyboard
for input of your latitude and longitude, the
DMU-2000 will lay
out and display a Great Circle Map centered
on your location! You may also connect a GPS Unit (one capable
of output of NMEA0183 position data) to your DMU-2000 in order
to download precise position data. The Great Circle Map allows
you to aim your antenna accurately, and the imbedded database
of worldwide cities may be used to determine a specific bearing
to a DX location, if you like.
• Log Book Feature
By connecting an after-market
keyboard and monitor to the
DMU-2000, you can utilize the on-board logging capability of the Yaesu FT-2000 (FT2000, FT-2000, FT 2000, FT-2000D, FT2000D, FT 2000D, Yaesu FT-2000D).
The Log Book includes an extensive database of DX information, and
you may archive your log data to the supplied CF card using one of the popular
logging formats like ADIF, Cabrillo, etc.
• Swept-Frequency SWR
As you tune
across the Amateur band and transmit at different frequencies, the DMU-2000
will plot the SWR across the band, alerting you to any unusual SWR situations,
• Memory Channel List
The 99 available memories may be grouped into as many as five Memory Croups,
and all these memories may be viewed on the Memory Channel Listing
You may add an alpha/numeric "Tag" to each memory, as well, for quick recall
of the channel's identification.
