    Any antenna to be used with the FT-2000D must, ultimately, be fed with 50 Ohm coaxial cable. Therefore, when using a “balanced” antenna such as a dipole, remember that a balun or other matching/balancing device must be used so as to ensure proper antenna performance.

    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. A good ground system can contribute to station efficiency in a number of ways: It can minimize the possibility of electrical shock to the operator.

  • Page 12

    Please refer to the illustration for the proper connection of the antenna coaxial cables and the FP-2000 Power Supply.

    PERATION The Standard Memory of the FT-2000D allows storage and recall of up to 99 memories, each storing frequency, mode, and a wide variety of status information detailed previously. Memories may be grouped into as many as six Memory Groups, and additionally you get nine pairs of band-limit (PMS) memories along with five QMB (Quick Memory Bank) memories.
