Yaesu FT-2000 HF Transceiver

Why I think the Yaesu FT-2000 HF Transceiver is one of the Best radios for any Shack..

I have been after a new Amateur Radio for years and just like busses they all seem to come at once.

I have got quite a few very old Vacuum Tube transmitters and receivers, but having given up Amateur Radio quite some time back I either moth-balled what I wanted to keep or got rid of it to some very close friends, and sadly for me anyway my biggest regret to date was parting with all my Drake Gear.

But I do have the thought that they went to the best friend I have left over here and also knowing that they not only are being looked after incredibly well, but also in the knowledge that any issues with them after I purchased them have also been sorted out under his very capable care, something at the time I was aiming to do but never got around to it.

I have always wanted to get hold of a new radio, top of the wish list has always been the Icom IC-7610 or even the Elecraft K3, but alas never seen any of them available when I had the money available, and now that I am not working at all due to illness the chances of getting hold of the dream rig is somewhat very remote indeed.

Also on my wish list of old has always been the Yaesu FT-2000 HF Transceiver, yes it would also include the Yaesu FT-5000 but that is totally out of my reach, but I always wanted a good radio for contesting which is something that I used to enjoy, and the Yaesu FT-2000 HF Transceiver is certainly capable of handling this.

Another reason for always wanting this, is that you can, if you are lucky enough to locate one, fit the RF-Space IF-2000 to the radio to give it a true Panoramic Adapter, problem here is finding one of these units now, but saved searches on eBay will hopefully throw one out of the cobwebs in the years to come.

The Yaesu FT-2000 HF Transceiver is also perfect for data modes, mainly RTTY, but also Packet, both of which I really enjoy.

I never really do any other modes but this is because unlike some people out there that use software such as Ham Radio Deluxe for their data modes with Macros, and Short Cuts.

I have always produced RTTY (FSK) via old school methods, originally via my Drake TR-4CW and the Drake Theta 7000E Communications Terminal, you don’t get macros’ with this old gear and RTTY was a real challenge, The ease of use of AFSK and HRD along with set macros’ means that it’s not really operating as I see it, it’s like sending CW via a keyboard and using software to decode the return QSO, it’s not CW and RTTY using macros and computers is not RTTY.

Anyway, I looked into it quite a bit and I can still do FSK for RTTY and without the computers taking over with the Yaesu FT-2000, just like I used to, yes the keyboard will be a lot newer and I will need to use an interface for which I have also got hold of a microHam MicroKeyer III, this will also help logbook entries using my favourite software UCXLOG, but it handles FSK really well.

The Settings on the Yaesu FT-2000 HF Transceiver at time of Purchase

Below are the current settings that I have copied from the radio that were changed from the default by the previous owner, the good thing about doing this is that you kind of get a feeling to how the transceiver was used but what settings were changed.

I started to copy these down and had the manual on screen at the same time and already noticed that there were a few items missing, and therefore the radio was possibly on a early firmware revision.

I checked the current version by holding down the ‘GEN’ ‘50’ and ‘ENT’ Keys on the Frequency Keyboard Entry on the Radio and then whilst held down, turn on the radio, you may need to do this a few times as they do not hang around for long and you need to read off two different sets where the VFOA Frequency is displayed, in my case:

My Current Firmware versions are:

10.24.1.33

This means that I have got ‘EDSP’ Firmware version 10.24 and also ‘Main CPU’ Firmware version 1.33 currently installed upon the radio.

So before I do the Upgrade I have made a note of all of the current settings, it is advisable to do this as the update of the firmware will also set everything to default.

In my case it is not a real issue as I will get fiddling later and make a few changes to the default settings as required for my own use.

This is the most up to date Firmware available now:

Accessing the "Hidden Menu" on the Yaesu FT-2000 HF Transceiver

WARNING !!!!!

Unlike the regular menu, this ‘Service Menu’ does not have ‘Default’ values assigned to it.

If you change any of the values in this ‘Service Menu’and then ‘Save It, even a Full Factory Reset will not return any of the values that you set here to what they left Yaesu.

Changes made here could void your Warranty with Yaesu even though by now these radios are all out of warranty, think that making changes here could “Brick” your radio.

If you do make changes here and you are worried that they will become set within the radio, Cut the power imediately so that no changes will be set.

This menu is VERY dangerous if you are not totally aware of what you are doing.

Please be aware that the settings below are for my radio alone and there is a VERY strong chance that the settings for your own radio may be very different!
Settings in this ‘Hidden Menu’ are set by Technicians at Yaesu using alignment tools that most individuals will not own or have available.

To Access the ‘Hidden Menu’ Hold down the ‘1’, ‘2’, and ‘3’ Keys whilst powering up the radio.
