    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. :)

    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.

    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..
