New kid in the hood

This Sunday we spend a very nice morning in the shack of Spiros, SV8CS. Theotokis, SV8AXZ, also joined us.The reason was the brand new FT-2000 by YAESU he got the previous day. The new shiny transceiver, object of desire of many hams, it was just in front of us. After several touches of the dial and the bottoms just to get the feel of the new machine, we started to explore it deeper. Actually it is an astonishing rig. The digital facilities is the most worthy addition comparing with FT1000MP that prevailed the previous decade. The display is a beauty. At last very bright and colorful. The needle power meter is also welcome. The software that controls the rig it is also very well done. The receiver, helped by awesome digital filters delivers a very smooth listening. The only thing I would like to be kept from its predecessor FT-1000MP Mark V, it is the mechanical heavy feel of its dial. Well Spiros I wish you good DX with your new toy and I am sure that you have a lot of things to discover playing with it in the next days.
