The MARK-V FT-1000MP's three antenna connec-
tors, plus innovative microprocessor-based memory
and switching circuits, provide excellent flexibility in
setting up your antenna connections.
Typical antenna configurations are shown below.
Remember that Antenna A and Antenna B (which are
"SO-239" or "M" connectors) may be used for trans-
mission and reception, while the RX Antenna port
(which is an "RCA" type connector) may only be used

LARGE RECEIVE ANTENNAS
Although surge suppression is provided on all an-
tenna ports, you may wish to consider building a
simple external circuit which will disconnect, on TX,
any antenna connected to the RX ANT IN jack,
particularly if you are using a very long wire an-
tenna such as a Beverage. Very long antennas can
build up very high RF and static voltages on them,
and the circuit below may provide better protection
for your receiver's input circuitry.
