When you finish your QSO, remember to press the
Clarifier RX button again to turn off the Clarifier. You
might also want to clear the offset when done.
The MARK-V FT-1000MP has an independent
Clarifier for each VFO, on every band, plus one on each
of the 99 memories. This means that Clarifier TX/RX
and offset settings are not (improperly) carried over
when you change bands or memory channels, but
rather are stored in the same condition you last set
them until you return to that VFO, band, sub receiver,
or memory again.
There are several settings that affect Clarifier op-
eration and the way the frequency is displayed that you
should be familiar with. After understanding their rela-
tionships, you can set them as desired.
Tuning Steps -The default 10-Hz tuning steps for
the Clarifier can be changed similar to the VFO's using
menu function 1-9 . Choose between 0.625 Hz, 1.25 Hz,
2.5 Hz, 5 Hz, 10 Hz or 20 Hz Clarifier steps.
Clarifier M-Tune - Programmed memories can be
re-tuned using the Clarifier when this is enabled ( menu
function 1-8 ). We will discuss memory tuning in detail
A display can be configured to show one of four differ-
ent operating parameters.
However, this can be changed to the channel frequency,
split offset (difference between VFO-A and VFO-B), or
else the CW Pitch setting. Which display you choose,
of course, depends on your operating habits, but can
be easily changed using menu function 3-5 . The fol-
lowing is a brief description of each display mode.
