    NSTALLATION AND NTERCONNECTIONS NTENNA ONSIDERATIONS The FT-2000D is designed for use with any antenna system providing a 50 Ohm resistive impedance at the desired oper- ating frequency. While minor excursions from the 50-Ohm specification are of no consequence, the transceiver’s Auto- matic Antenna Tuner may not be able to reduce the impedance mismatch to an acceptable value if the Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) present at the Antenna jack is greater than 3:1.

    NSTALLATION AND NTERCONNECTIONS ROUNDING The FT-2000D transceiver, like any other HF communications apparatus, requires an effective ground system for maxi- mum electrical safety and best communications effectiveness.
