Yaesu Transceivers

Yaesu FT-DX5000MP LTD (w/o SM-5000) Premium Class Shortwave/50MHz Transceiver


Aside from the FT-DX9000 the FT-DX5000 is the flag ship of Yaesu shortwave transceivers. An excellent main receiver, working as a double superhet with 9MHz 1. IF is complemented with an independent second receiver (triple superhet, 40MHz 1.IF). This concept is perfect for the demanding DX chaser or contester, whether at home or in a DX location. The main receiver achieves top values, for example a non-blocking dynamic range of up to 112 dB, with a 3rd order IP of 40dB. These superb values are also independently verified by Sherwood Engineering Inc. (USA), who list the FT-DX5000 at the top position in their receiver list.

Yaesu arrives at such excellent receiver values by using numerous roofing filters. The FT-DX5000 includes the following roofing filters: 600Hz, 3, 6 and 15 kHz. The model FT-Dx5000MP has a further 300Hz filter installed, which can be retrofitted to other models as well.

The FT-DX5000 is supplied with a built-in 230V AC power supply, operation with 13.8V is not possible. The power supply has enough 'juice' for the MOSFET finals, which run on 48V with a very good linearity. The max. output power of all FT-DX5000 models is 200 W (75 W in class A operation).


Last but not least both receivers are supported by a state of the art IF DSP. This system allows to set nearly any IF bandwidth for any mode. Audio peak filters raise and limit the audio, perfect for much better intelligibility, variable automatic or manual notch filters suppress interferences. Further the IF DSP is used for noise reduction, a perfect transmit modulation and much more.

The FH-2 keypad and also the Microphone MH-31B8 is included in the shipment of the FT-DX5000D!

Yaesu Station Monitor SM-5000


The Station Monitor SM-5000 is optional available. This monitor offers a graphical spectrum view of the currently selected band. This is very helpful for a quick overview of activity on a band, perfect for contesting and breaking that pile-up. Additionally the SM-5000 offers two built-in loudspeakers, one for each receiver.

µ-Tune Kit

µ-Tune Kit

µ-Tune Kits are external filters for the bands 160m, 80 + 40m and 30 + 20m. These filters work with a motor driven coil and achieve a very high Q, again increasing the strong signal handling capabilities of the transceiver. The bandfilters require some assembly before use. All required cables are included. Size 330 x 120 x 120mm, weight 2.6kg.

Data Management Unit DMU-2000

DMU-2000 + Scope-Board

The DMU-2000 is an optional device for the FT-DX5000, FT-2000 and FT-950 and offers some very useful functions. For operation of the DMU-2000 a SVGA monitor is required (not included). Furthermore some functions require a computer keyboard (not included).

  • Spectrum display: This display offers a quick overview of the selcted band, bandwith can be choosen between 25 kHz and 2.5MHz.
  • Audio scope: Offer audio analysis functions of the transmitted and received audio signal, waterfall display for digital modes etc.
  • SWR display: Over a selected band the SWR is measured and graphically displayed. Further some vital parameters like PA voltage, current, temperature etc. can be displayed.
  • Memory management: Shows the 99 internal memories, offers edit of memory names etc. (requires keyboard)
  • World clock: A world map with daylight zone displayed, ideal for greyline DXing. Alarm clock for your next sked.
  • Rotor control: Supports various Yaesu rotors. The screen shows a great circle map (beam map) centered on your home location.
  • Log book: With the optional keyboard a comfortable logging is possible directly to the transceiver and DMU-2000. The log data can be exported later to a CF memory card (supplied) in various formats (Cabrillo, ADIF, CSV, TXT).
  • Menu Setup: The usual menu setup can be done also with the DMU-2000, offering a comprehensive view of all options of the FT-2000 transceiver.

Frequency Extension for Radios

Please note:
All radios supplied by WiMo normally cover only the amateur bands (transmit wise).

The frequency extension of a radio (TX open) is done on explicit request by the customer.

Amateur Radio transceivers are usually not specified for use outside the amateur bands. In some cases the radio and especially the final amplifier or output filters can be damaged when transmitting outside the amateur bands. These damages are not covered by any warranty.

The manufacturer warranty might be voided in some cases as well.
