Equipment on Rodrigues
Remember those big signals
from 9M0C and D68C?
They were from Yaesu FT-1000 transceivers (MP at 9M0C and MkV at D68C),
coupled in both cases to Yaesu VL-1000 amplifiers.
On both DXpeditions, all the Yaesu equipment performed flawlessly, despite
round-the-clock operation in extremes of temperature and humidity. That’s a
total of over 230,000 QSOs without a single failure.
10 x Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark-V transceivers. Yaesu’s latest ‘top of the
range’ HF transceiver for elite DXers.
2 x Yaesu FT-847 HF/VHF/UHF transceivers.
Fully capable of HF operation but
also ideal for specialist operations including satellite.
Other Yaesu transceivers including FT-1000MP,
FT-890, FT-897, FT-920 and an FT-817.
