    Please read all safety and operating instructions before using this transceiver. For best results, be aware of all warnings on the transceiver and follow these operating instructions. Retain these safety and operating instructions for future reference. 1 Power Source Connect this transceiver only to the power source described in the operating instructions or as marked on the transceiver itself.

    INSTALLATION |nstall and connect an antenna system {page 1}. Install a ground system that satisfies DC and RF grounding requirements {page 2}. Install lightning protection to protect the antenna system, your personal safety, and your property {page 2}. ANTENNA CONNECTION The type of the antenna system, consisting of the antenna, ground, and feed line, will greatly affect the successful performance of the transceiver.

  • Page 8: Ground Connection, Lightning Protection, Dc Power Supply Connection, Replacing Fuses

    1 INSTALLATION GROUND CONNECTION At the minimum, a good DC ground is required to prevent such dangers as electric shock. For superior communications results, a good RF ground is required, against which the antenna system can operate. Both of these conditions can be met by providing a good earth ground for your station.

  • Page 26: Chapter 6 Basic Communicating, Ssb Transmission

    BASIC COMMUNICATING SSB TRANSMISSION SSB is now the most commonly-used mode on the HF Amateur bands. Compared with other voice modes, SSB requires a narrow bandwidth for communications. SSB also allows long distance communication with minimum transmit power. These reasons, combined with the fact that modern Amateur transceivers deliver reasonably good audio quality, make SSB the mode that most prefer on HF.

  • Page 27: Cw Transmission, Auto Zero-beat, Tx Sidetone/ Rx Pitch Frequency

    CW TRANSMISSION CW operators know that this mode is a reliable method of communicating under the worst conditions. Although it’s true that newer digital modes rival CW as being equally as useful in poor conditions, these modes do not have the long history of service yet nor the simplicity that CW can have.

  • Page 28: Fm Transmission, Tx Deviation Selection, Am Transmission

    6 BASIC COMMUNICATING FM TRANSMISSION FM operation on HF frequencies solves the problem of how to have long distance voice communication with the finest audio quality. When combined with the full- quieting aspect of FM signals that suppress background noise on the frequency, FM can be the best method for maintaining regular schedules with friends.

  • Page 29: Chapter 7 Specialized Communicating, Split-frequency Operation, Tf-set (transmit Frequency Set)

    SPECIALIZED COMMUNICATING SPLIT-FREQUENCY OPERATION Usually you can communicate with other stations using the same frequency for receiving and transmitting. In this case, you select only one frequency on either VFO A or VFO B. However, there are cases where you must select one frequency for receiving and another frequency for transmitting.

  • Page 30: Fm Repeater Operation

    7 SPECIALIZED COMMUNICATING FM REPEATER OPERATION Most Amateur radio voice repeaters use a separate receive and transmit frequency. The transmit frequency may be higher or lower than the receive frequency. In addition, some repeaters may require the transceiver to transmit a subtone before the repeater can be used. Compared to simplex communication, you can usually transmit over much greater distances by using a repeater.

  • Page 31: Selecting Subtone Frequency, Continuous Or Burst Subtones, Fm Ctcss Operation

    SELECTING SUBTONE FREQUENCY Some 10-meter FM repeaters require the transceiver to transmit a subtone, to prevent other repeaters on the same frequency from locking each other up. The required subtone frequency depends on the repeater you are accessing. In Europe, a 1750 Hz tone is generally used to access repeaters.

  • Page 32: Digital Operation, Rtty (frequency Shift Keying)

    7 SPECIALIZED COMMUNICATING DIGITAL OPERATION Since Multimode Communications Processors (MCP) have become popular, many Amateurs enjoy operating using a number of digital modes. The power and variety of Amateur radio increased greatly with the development of MCP that can use your transceiver as the communications link.

  • Page 33

    AMTOR/ PACKET/ PACTOR/ G-TOR Due to their error-handling capability and speed of transmission, these modes are more efficient than earlier forms of digital communication by machine. In the case of G-TOR , it was developed specifically to handle the adverse conditions of communicating across the solar system with spacecraft during their missions.

  • Page 34: Slow Scan Tv/ Facsimile, Satellite Operation

    7 SPECIALIZED COMMUNICATING SLOW SCAN TV/ FACSIMILE SSTV is now increasing in popularity as a result of the capability of computers. Using this technique, you can transmit and receive still monochrome or full-color images. Instead of trying to describe your station, just showing it is much faster.

  • Page 37: Vox (voice-operated Transmit), Transmitting, Microphone Input Level, Delay Time

    TRANSMITTING VOX (VOICE-OPERATED TRANSMIT) VOX eliminates the necessity of manually switching to the transmit mode each time you want to transmit. The transceiver automatically switches to transmit when the VOX circuitry senses that you have begun speaking into the microphone. When using VOX, develop the habit of pausing between thoughts to let the transceiver drop back to receive briefly.

  • Page 38: Speech Processor, Xit (transmit Incremental Tuning)

    8 COMMUNICATING AIDS SPEECH PROCESSOR The Speech Processor levels large fluctuations in your voice while you speak. When using SSB, FM, or AM mode, this leveling action effectively raises the average transmit output power, resulting in a more understandable signal. The amount of voice compression is fully adjustable.

  • Page 39: Customizing Transmit Signal Characteristics, Changing Transmit Bandwidth (ssb/am), Equalizing Transmit Audio (ssb/fm/am), Monitoring Transmitted Signals

    CUSTOMIZING TRANSMIT SIGNAL CHARACTERISTICS The quality of your transmitted signal is important regardless of which on-the-air activity you pursue. However, it’s easy to be casual and overlook this fact since you don’t listen to your own signal. The following sub-sections provide information that will help you tailor your transmitted signal.

  • Page 40: Cw Break-in, Using Semi Break-in Or Full Break-in, Electronic Keyer, Changing Keying Speed, Auto Weighting

    8 COMMUNICATING AIDS CW BREAK-IN Break-in allows you to transmit CW without manually switching between transmit and receive modes. Two types of Break-in are available, Semi Break-in and Full Break-in. Semi Break-in: When the key contacts open, the transceiver automatically waits for the passage of the time period that you have selected.

  • Page 41: Changing Locked-weight, Bug Key Function, Cw Message Memory, Storing Cw Messages

    CHANGING LOCKED-WEIGHT Switching Auto Weighting OFF locks the dash/dot weighting to 3:1. It is also possible to change this default locked-weight. Use Menu No. 49 to select from 16 ratios, in the range from 2.5:1 to 4.0:1. “2.7”, visible while making selections, for example, designates 2.7:1. Note: When the Auto Weighting or Bug Key function is ON, the selection made in Menu No.

    REJECTING INTERFERENCE IF FILTER The IF filters are designed for selecting the exact range of intermediate frequencies that are sent to the next stage in the receive circuit. Interference adjacent to the desired signal can be reduced by selecting a narrow bandwidth filter and/or shifting the center frequency of the filter.
