Before plugging in the transceiver, check your in-
stallation to make sure your AC voltage is correct, and
that your ground and antenna are connected as de-
scribed in the Installation chapter. Then preset the fol-
lowing controls as indicated:
[ POWER ] , [ ANT RX ] , [ MOX ] , [ VOX ] , and [ AF REV ]
buttons all off
AGC selector to AUTO
[ IPO ] button to off
AF GAIN and SUB AF knobs matched at approxi-
mately 9 o'clock
MIC, PROC, RF PWR, MONI, SQL, SUB SQL, and
NB knobs all counterclockwise
RF GAIN knob fully clockwise
SHIFT, WIDTH, and NOTCH knobs 12 o'clock (de-
[ LOCK ] , [ FAST ] , [ SPOT ] , [ BK-IN ] , and [ KEYER ]
switches all off .
Connect your microphone and CW key/paddle, then
plug the AC cord into the wall outlet.
The MARK-V FT-1000MP incorporates a wealth of
operating functions and features. For flexibility in con-
figuring these capabilities, and to keep the front panel
controls to a minimum, an internal Menu Programming
routine is used. This allows customizing the functions
via menu selections that previously required many
elaborate DIP switch settings, power-on/button hold-
ing routines, or additional front and rear panel controls/
switches. This permits each rig to have a custom "per-
sonality" that specifically matches your operating re-
quirements, with the capability for easy modification
as your requirements change.
Menu programming is enabled by pressing the
[ FAST ] button, followed by [ ENT ] . You may then rotate
the VRF/MEM CH knob to display the desired setting.
Each of the settings can be changed or customized,
as you like, in this mode. For clarity's sake, transceiver
functions that have several settings or options are ref-
erenced to the Menu Programming chapter separately,
where details of programming are covered. Descrip-
tions for most transceiver functions in this chapter as-
sume default (factory-configured) transceiver settings.
There also are some "short-cuts" to certain Menu
settings, and these will be described in the appropriate
chapters to follow.
Note: the following procedure assumes the transceiver
has not been used before, and not already set for Dual
reception. If "DUAL" appears on the display when you
switch on the set in the next step, you should press the
blue [ DUAL ] button to return to the single-receiver mode
Press the [ POWER ] switch on. The meter and dis-
play should light up. If the display is too bright for your
taste, it can be switched to a more subdued level using
menu selection 3-4 (see page 100).
Take a moment to study the display. You should
" at the bottom, with the operating frequency
of the Main VFO just above the main tuning knob. To
the right of that is the Clarifier offset ("0.00"), followed
by the memory channel number ("1-01" CH by default).
At the right side of the display are the current mode
and frequency of SUB VFO-B, which we'll talk about
Press a keypad key
(between the two tuning
knobs) to select a band for
which your antenna is de-
signed. Refer to the white
"MHz" labels, and press
the appropriate one.
Pressing a front-panel button normally produces a
beep. Its volume is independent of receiver vol-
ume, and can be set by adjusting a trimmer via a
hole on the bottom panel of the transceiver case.
To change the pitch of the beeper, recall menu sec-
tion 4-2 (page 101) and select the desired pitch
(between 220 and 7040 Hz) by turning the dial. You
can also disable the beeper via menu selection 4-1
(also page 101).
