Receiver Enhancement Features;
â€¢ IF Shift â€“ For reduction of adjacent-frequency interference.
â€¢ IF Noise Blanker â€“ For reduction of ignition and other impulse-type noise.
â€¢ IPO (Intercept Point Optimization) â€“ Bypasses RX Preamp on HF/50 mHz for improved performance during strong-signal conditions.
â€¢ ATT (Front End Attenuator) â€“ For more pleasant reception of very
Outstanding CW Features;
â€¢ CW â€œSemi Break-in,â€ with T?R recovery delay programmable from 10ms ~ 2500 ms. At 10 ms setting, performance emulates QSK operation.
â€¢ CW Reverse: provides BFO injection from LSB-side, instead of default USB-side.
â€¢ CW Pitch Control: adjusts TX offset and (identical) sidetone between 300 Hz and 1000 Hz in 50 Hz steps; this allows precise spotting on DXstations. Sidetone level is adjustable.
â€¢ Built-in Electronic Keyer, with speed adjustable between 4 WPM and 60 WPM, and Weight (Dot:Dash Ratio) adjustable between 1:2.5 and 1:4.5.
â€¢ For emergency use, the Menu allows you to set up the Microphoneâ€™s [UP] and [DWN] keys for generation of â€œDotsâ€ and â€œDashesâ€ on CW!
A wealth of information is available on the front panel LCD:
â€¢ When you have to be away from the radio for a few minutes, but would like a visual indication of activity while youâ€™re away, activate the Spectrum Scope Monitor. The Spectrum Scope Monitor allows you to watch activity Â±5 channels from the current operating frequency.
â€¢ The LCD illumination color may be set to either Blue or Amber color, using the Menu.
â€¢ Watch for low battery trouble using the Battery Voltage Meter display selection.
â€¢ For ease of viewing while outdoors, you can double the size of the frequency display
