The radio... YAESU


Once in a life time will you have a chance to come across such excellence in engineering at your finger tips. The new powerful FT-2000 is the second generation in a line of transceiver as the direct descendent of the world renown FTdx-9000 series transceiver.  The new FT-2000 debuted at the Dayton Hamvention May 2006, with much enthusiasm and excitement at the Yaesu exhibit.  With an expected delivery late June or early July 2006, marketing is targeted at competition with other similar priced transceivers such as the IC-756 Pro-III category with pricing in the $3000 plus range.  Now if you're one of those amateur operators who was first licensed in 1956 saying to themselves "I never thought I'd see the day that the average price of a transceiver would be $3000 dollars" well your not alone.  However before you run and hide your head in the sand this transceiver is very much worthy of a closer look and your  consideration, especially if you are in the market for a new top of the line transceiver.  Not since the Yaesu FT-101 have I seen so much excitement for a transceiver, and if I may remind you the top of the line for 1982 was the Yaesu FT-One, it also sold for nearly $3000 U.S. dollars.  Considering the advancements in technology that this transceiver has to offer and inflation over the past twenty four years that makes the street value of the FT-2000 look like real bargain for the money.  Comparing weight and size of the FT-2000 with it's big brother the FTdx-9000 it is definitely smaller and much lighter in weight, but don't be fooled the FT-2000 has nothing but class written all over it.  And while many an ardent amateur and Yaesu fan waited for the launch of the FT-2000, I'm sure you will soon agree that it was worth the wait. Remember good things come to those who wait, we at Fox Tango International feel that Vertex Standard (Yaesu) has a real winner on it's hands with their new FT-2000 leading edge transceiver.  (W4CLM)

Loaded with leading-edge performance capabilities, the 2nd generation of the FTdx9000 series transceiver,  in the tradition of venerable FT-1000 series, it incorporates an amazing number of advanced features from the FT-9000 series. Covering 160 through 6 meters, this transceiver will be available in two configurations:
A 100 watt version with internal power supply.
A 200 watt version with external power supply.
