* Built-in FTS-27 CTCSS Decoder Unit
* Large, High-Quality Speaker

WIDE FREQUENCY COVERAGE!
The FT-100D is the smallest transceiver in the world providing such wide frequency coverage. Providing transceive coverage of the HF, 50 MHz, 144 MHz, and 430 MHz amateur bands on SSB, CW, AM, FM, AFSK Teletype, and Packet, the MICRO MOBILE also includes receive coverage of 100 kHz through 961 MHz (cellular and digital telephone frequencies are blocked), so you can monitor public safety, weather broadcast, AM and FM broadcast, and TV audio transmissions, in addition to all the action on the ham bands. All this from a rugged compact case measuring just 6.3" (W) x 2.2" (H) x 8.0" (D) (160 x 54 x 205 mm).


RUGGED, HIGH-OUTPUT TRANSMITTER DESIGN!

The FT-100D's power amplifier section utilizes MOSFET devices, providing low noise, low distortion, and high reliability. The HF/50 MHz amplifier provides 100 Watts of output, while the VHF/UHF section generates 50 Watts of power on 144 MHz, and 20 Watts on 430 MHz. Reliability is assured thanks to the extensive cooling system, featuring twin cooling fans and an aluminum diecast chassis.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE RECEIVER DESIGN!
Building on the acclaimed performance of the FT-1000D, FT-1000MP, and FT-847, Yaesu's engineers have crafted the FT-100D's front end for a very low noise floor and wide dynamic range. Utilizing an up-conversion architecture for HF with a 68.985 MHz first IF, the FT-100D features a double-conversion superheterodyne system (triple-conversion on FM) with the 2nd IF at 11.705 MHz. The first mixer is a low-noise, high-intercept design using SST310 JFETs in a doubly-balanced configuration. On 144/430 MHz, the very-low-noise GaAs MES FET SGM2016 preamplifier is followed by an HSB88 diode-ring mixer, yielding the excellent Noise Figure required for weak-signal work. The front-end devices are individually selected and matched, ensuring a high level of performance consistency as units are manufactured.

ENHANCED TRANSCEIVER PERFORMANCE THROUGH DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING!
For superior interference rejection and transmitter "talk power," the FT-100D's DSP circuitry enhances both sides of the communications circuit. The FT-100D's DSP Unit features a 24-bit high-tech D/A chip for signal processing. •Digital Dual Bandpass Filter : Providing "brick wall" audio selectivity for voice modes, the Bandpass filter allows independent High-Pass and Low-Pass Filter adjustments, with cutoff frequencies of 100 Hz ~ 1000 Hz (HPF) and 1000 Hz ~ 6000 Hz (LPF). On CW, the Bandpass filter becomes an Audio Peaking Filter with available bandwidths of 60/120/240 Hz. •Noise Reduction Filter : Building on the highly-successful Noise Reduction feature of the FT-920, the FT-100D's DSP utilizes multi-parameter analysis for efficient processing and reduction of incoming noise. A total of 16 Noise Reduction settings are available for best results under changing conditions. •Automatic Seeking Notch Filter : For removal of annoying carriers or heterodynes, the DSP Notch Filter will identify and suppress one or more such signals automatically, thus improving copy and reducing operator fatigue. •Microphone Equalizer : To match the FT-100D's transmitter audio response to the waveform produced by your voice and the microphone in use, the DSP system includes a three-position Mic Equalizer circuit. The result is increased "talk power" as extraneous frequencies are suppressed, allowing all available power to be concentrated into your voice's pattern.

DIRECT DIGITAL SYNTHESIZER!
To ensure the dual goals of low receiver noise floor and wide dynamic range, Yaesu's engineers utilize an AD9850 Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) for the main local oscillator of the FT-100D. Providing fast lock time and excellent Carrier-to-Noise (C/N) ratio, the DDS also yields tuning steps as small as 1.25 Hz, for silky-smooth action indistinguishable from an analog VFO system. The PLL circuits in the FT-100D feature a low-noise custom J-FET device (FQ7925), thus enhancing system performance.

ADVANCED FEATURES FOR ACTIVE DXERS!
•IF Shift : Use the IF SHIFT feature to vary the center frequency of the IF passband, so as to eliminate interference above or below the current operating frequency.
•IF Noise Blanker : Optimized for use in the mobile environment, the FT-100D includes an effective IF Noise Blanker specially designed for suppression of ignition and other pulse-type noises. The Noise Blanker's threshold is adjustable via the MENU system.
•Intercept Point Optimization (IPO) : For reception on the lower frequencies, where very low Noise Figure is not required, the IPO feature causes the RF preamplifier to be bypassed, allowing direct signal input to the first mixer. An input attenuator is also available, for reception under extremely noisy conditions.
•Adjustable AGC : The Automatic Gain Control (AGC) circuitry of the FT-100D's receiver may be adjusted, via the MENU, for SLOW or FAST receiver recovery times. A convenient "AUTO" setting programs "FAST" AGC for CW, and "SLOW" for voice modes.
•Clarifier (RIT) : For split-frequency pile-ups or to follow drifting signals, the Clarifier control provides up to ±9.99 kHz of adjustment of the receiver's frequency, without changing the transmitter frequency. For wider-split pile-ups, the "SPLIT" mode allows you to use VFO-A and VFO-B separately, too.
•RF Gain Control : For noise reduction and/or variation of the AGC system threshold, the MENU allows the front panel's Squelch control to be switched to operate as an "RF Gain" control.
•VOX : For hands-free voice operation, the VOX system includes MENU adjustments for both VOX Gain and Delay. A separate setting is also provided for receiver recovery in the CW mode. CW OPERATING FLEXIBILITY!
•Built-In Electronic Keyer : The FT-100D's built-in Electronic Keyer includes Dot : Space and Dash : Space weight adjustments.
•CW Message Memory : For repetitive "CQ DX" or "CQ TEST" messages, the FT-100D includes a 50-character CW Message register.
•CW Full Break-In (QSK) : Both "Full QSK" and "Semi-Break-In" CW modes are available, with excellent keyed waveforms in both modes.
•CW "Reverse" Reception : When interference is encountered in the CW mode, the "Reverse" feature allows the injection sideband to be changed between "USB" and "LSB" by a simple press of the "MODE" switch on the front panel.
•CW Pitch/Sidetone Control : The CW PITCH control allows the transmitted signal to be offset 400/500/600/700/800 Hz from "zero beat" with the receive frequency. This adjustment simultaneously varies the center frequency of the RX passband (including the DSP BPF), as well as the CW Sidetone's pitch. The sidetone therefore serves as a "Spot" signal during tuning.
•Optional Narrow Filter: The ultra-narrow XF-117CN 300 Hz CW filter is an available option for the FT-100D, providing an additional CW filter selection for use during very crowded conditions.

MULTI-FUNCTION "SELECT" KNOB
The front panel's SELECT knob acts as a Quick-QSY dial for tuning, with independent steps on different bands and modes. The SELECT knob is also used for Memory Channel and MENU item selection, as well as CLARIFIER tuning and IF SHIFT adjustment.

ONE-TOUCH SCROLLING FRONT PANEL

•QMB Scan : When operating on the QMB channels, you can also elect to scan just those memories.
During scanning operation, the FT-100D can be set up to Stop completely when a signal is encountered; to Hold until the incoming transmission ceases; or to Resume after a delay of 1 to 10 seconds.

HIGH-RESOLUTION DOT-MATRIX DISPLAY!
The large (70 mm x 30 mm) blue LCD dot-matrix display provides easy-to-read indication of many operating functions, including frequency, RX and TX metering, operating functions, status icons, and the Spectrum Scope bar-graph. And to set the illumination level precisely to the brightness you want, the MENU provides a "Dimmer" feature with 64 degrees of illumination.

OPTIONAL REMOTE MOUNTING KIT!
For mobile operation where mounting space is very limited, the optional YSK-100 Separation Kit allows the front panel to be remotely mounted on your dashboard, with the transceiver stashed away in available space. Data is transferred between units at a lightning-fast rate of 62,500 bps, for seamless remote operation.

LEADING-EDGE FEATURES FOR VHF/UHF OPERATORS!
•Automatic Repeater Shift : On the 144 MHz and 430 MHz bands, the FT-100D will automatically activate the repeater shift appropriate for the part of the band in which you are working.
•CTCSS/DCS Tone Systems : For repeater access, a CTCSS Encoder/Decoder is built into the FT-100D, and for advanced repeater systems a 104-code Digital Code Squelch system provides improved immunity from false decoding.

•Smart Search™ : When visiting a new city, use the Smart Search™ system to scan the FM band for activity. When busy channels are found, they will be automatically loaded into a special Smart Search™ Memory Bank, for easy recall.

•Spectrum Scope : If you have to be away from your radio for a few minutes, turn on the Spectrum Scope to keep watch on band activity. The Spectrum Scope will create a bar-graph display of activity on 15 channels above and below your current operating frequency.
•ARTS™ (Auto-Range Transponder System) : During Search-and-Rescue operations, the ARTS™ feature will notify you if a field station (for example, a hand-held unit) has gone out of communications range, so you can instruct them to move to a better location.
