The Yaesu FTDX5000 series of HF/50 MHz 200 watt transceivers are a new premium class of Yaesu radios with two fully independent receivers plus many unique options and
accessories designed to meet the performance requirements of even the most demanding amateur radio operator. Yaesu engineers have achieved 112 dB dynamic range and an IP3 [3rd Order Intercept Point] of +40 dBm (CW, 500 Hz BW). Newly designed, extra sharp roofing filters for VFOA/Main receiver are selectable between 300 Hz (optional on some versions), 600 Hz, 3 kHz, 6 kHz and 15 kHz. Yaesu incorporates two of their famous custom designed 32 bit floating point DSP chips based on the TI TMS320C6727B running at 300 MHz … one for VFO A and one for VFO B. Enjoy state of the art on the transmit side with a pair of reliable VRF150 FETS in a push-pull configuration yielding 200 watts (75 watts class A operation). Three electro-luminescent subdisplays indicate sub frequency, graphical wave and menu functions. The rear panel features a 9 MHz IF out from VFO Main receiver. Other enhancements include: large multi-function meter and variable CW audio peak filter. Now shipping.

Yesterday it was a very nice and sunny afternoon.
I had a day off from work and still had to ajust a “mod” om my home made 2 elm SteppIR.
First locate the driven elment without a balun. And made this one my driven element.
The other driven elem has to be like a director or a reflector.
So there is one thing i really have to do and forgot in the first place. Solder a copper wire between the two pols.
Ok for only that fix i had to disable the complete motor again 🙁

After a hours of two i fixed the problem, and still need to test it in the field.
Hope this will work. I will let you know as soon as possible.

Today we got home and turned on the radio.
I was listening on 15mtr and did notice some nice propagation.
Well lets try the magic band 17mtr. What will this bring us.
After getting there who did i hear. W8ERN Angelo very strong. 9+10 +15 all the time.
Make a Qso with him and had a nice chat on the band. And that only with 200w from the rig at the present time.
Talk about the 7700 in compaire with the 9000D. I also made a recording Qso from Angelo with me.
