Somebody heard something about new Yaesu FT DX 5000MP?
Is it real or is it Memorex, I mean Photoshop.
Strange that Vertex USA has a brochure, yet there is no info on Vertex Japans site on this rig.
But if it is Photoshop, someone is very good at it.
I do not think so..
Very strange way to leak this info out, but it looks like a real item.
I wonder how many sub-menus layers to change RF Power and Keyer speed?
Nice lookin' rig. Probably way out of my price range. Maybe I can swap 2 Tootsie Pops and a Tricycle for one.
Another new rig: FTdx6000.
It looks like FTdx9000.
Indeed appears to be genuine. I'd love to see specs and images.
Preliminary info posted, will update when possible:
Hm, well, both of those have their own knobs on the FT-2000 so if I had to guess, none.
Can't imagine it's a replacement for the FT-2000 though, there's lots of room between 2000 and 9000 for them to add models. Looks like a combination of the 9000 display on that 6000, the 5000 sure looks a lot like the FT-2000.
Interesting. That would be a very short lifecycle for the FT-2000 if indeed it's being replaced
That monitor looks interesting - i wonder if it will fit the 2000. looks rather nicer than the huge computer display if you don't have to buy the expansion chassis.
One or the other:
Or FT5000 - cardinally new decision from Yaesu, or FT5000 - repetition FT2000.
That is why I so think:
FT2000= FT950+Power Supply+SubRX
FT9000= FT2000+DMU2000+Monitor+(3 X MuTuneKit)
What is FT5000? Just think about...
I saw an email that was sent to all of the Ham Radio Outlet stores 2 weeks ago about the FTDX5000MP. The email implied that delivery would occur before the end of this year..
