Yaesu FT-450D HF/50 MHz All Mode DSP Amateur Transceiver with Internal Auto Tuner
This sale is for a beautiful Yaesu FT-450D transceiver that came to us from a gent who was thinning out his amateur radio gear. We typically offer and specialize in communications receivers, but are happy to offer this beautiful Yaesu transceiver. If the unit remains unsold, we will be reducing the price and perhaps it will match your budget if it does not currently do so. In looking at the front panel, it appears to look virtually new in appearance. Operationally we tested the receive functions, but did not test the transmit functions as we do not possess a proper arrangement to manage this. We turned the transmit power down to 5 watts during our testing of the receiving section so that we could minimize the risk to our amplified receiving antenna should we hit the "tune" button by accident. We also blocked out the 10, 20, and 50 meter bands for receiving option when selecting operating bands and so the new owner will want to go through the menu options and restore the transceiver back to the original factory defaults. According to information found online, this transceiver offers the following features. 400 MHz built-in IF DSP.
Built-in TCXO ± 1 PPM/hour (after warmup). Built in Antenna Tuning System. Dedicated Data Jack for FSK-RTTY. Digital voice announcement of frequency, mode and S-meter. 500 Regular Memories and Two voice memories.
500 & 300 Hz CW Filters. This transceiver comes with a copy of the user manual, an unused MH-31A8J hand microphone, and a DC cable to attach to your power supply.
Dave Zantow also does a comprehensive review, but this was done more from the perspective of using as a shortwave receiver and so he mentions that the FT-450D is best served as an amateur transceiver.
