PDF Content Summary: FTDX9000 TFT OPERATION MANUAL FTDX9000 TFT OPERATION MANUAL PLEASE READ THIS FIRST When turning on the transceiver for the first time, please set the local time as soon as possible. If this is not done, the various functions of the World Clock and Great Circle Map will not function correctly. Note: If you wish to add a city to the City List that was programmed at the factory, you will need to supply your own USB or PS2 Keyboard. If you utilize one of the pre-loaded cities, a keyboard is not necessary. You may also set up the local time for other locations, without a keyboard, using the cities that have been pre loaded at the factory.

1. Powering Up the Transceiver ⑧ On the rear panel, move the Power switch to the “I” position to apply power from the power supply. The transceiver will not turn on yet, but power will now be supplied to the OCXO. ⑧ Hold in the front panel POWER switch to turn the transceiver on. Note: The opening screen will appear on the TFT dis play, and the self-check function of the CPU inside the radio will begin. Then, the μ-Tuning circuitry will receive the data from the CPU, and it will perform its own self-check, and will preset itself to the proper set tings for the current operating frequency. While the μ-Tuning circuitry is obtaining the data, the drive mechanism will move from one end of its range to the other end (fast), and this will cause a temporary “motor” noise that can be heard; this, does not repre sent any trouble or problem. When the radio is turned on for the first time, it takes about 50 seconds (from turning the radio on to com pleting the self- check) until the radio becomes ready to use; however, from the next time you turn it on, it will take around 10 seconds until the transceiver is ready for full operation. 2. Local Time-1 Setup ⑧ On the TFT, there should be a World Map dis played; if the World Map does not appear, find the [DISP](Display) key below and to the right of the TFT; press this key as many times as required to get the World Map to display on the TFT. ⑧ Below the TFT, press the [F1](SET) key; the TFT should now show LOCAL TIME -1; this setting has been pre-set for Japanese time at the factory.

HOW TO USE THE WORLD CLOCK ABOUT THE WORLD CLOCK

The World Clock displays the time in various coun tries, and the day/night areas are also indicated on the map, including the Grey Line near the terminator. The difference between the daylight areas in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres is displayed correctly, and is updated in real time. For DX hunt ing, this can be a very important and convenient tool for specific long distance HF QSOs, for example, as you can target the time the other station might have access to, say, the 80-meter band, enabling you to complete a QSO. In addition, an alarm is provided which beeps with respect to a designated area at a designated time, and the auto-off timer can also be matched to any desired area you stipulate. Note: When you turn on the transceiver for the first time after your purchasing this radio, please set the local time (the place where you operate this radio), and confirm this setting. If this is not done, the vari ous functions of the World clock and Great Circle map will not function correctly.

TEMPERATURE / SWR INDICATION ABOUT THE TEMPERATURE/SWR INDICATION It is possible to display the VDD (TX Final Amplifier) voltage, bias voltage, the temperature of the heat sink of the final devices, and the (swept) SWR characteristics/performance of the antenna connected, all together on the TFT screen. EXPLANATION OF THE FUNCTION KEYS ON THE TEMPERATURE/SWR INDICATION SCREEN ♍ ♎♏♐♑ ♒

♍ [F2](MARKER) This key turns the marker on the SWR character istic graph on and off. The marker lets you identify quickly the frequency on which a particular SWR reading is being ob served. ♎[F3](⍽) This key moves the marker cursor to the left. ♏ [F4](⇪) This key moves the marker cursor to the right. Page 30 ♐[F5](ERASE) Press this key when you want to clear the mea sured SWR at the marker’s current point. ♑[F6](SWR CK) To check the SWR on a particular frequency, ro tate the Main dial, and set the frequency to be measured Now press [F6](SWR CK); the SWR will be measured and the result will be displayed on the screen. ♒[DISP](DISPLAY) Pressing this key momentarily takes you to the “GREAT CIRCLE MAP/ROTATOR CONTROL FUNCTION” screen. If you press and hold in this key for 2 seconds, the screen will move to the “LOG BOOK” screen. FTDX9000 TFT OPERATION MANUAL

♍ VDD TEMPERATURE / SWR INDICATION GRAPHIC METER DISPLAYS ♍ ♎♏♐ The measured temperature range of this meter is The drain voltage of the final FET is measured and displayed here. The measurement range is 0-60 V, and the proper voltage is around 50 V. On TX, if around 50 V is displayed, the transceiver is operating normally. ♎BIAS While operating with the Class-A, and the bias is changed by rotating the BIAS knob from class A to class AB, this indication can be used to observe the current setting. The indication is 0-100 % and “0%” means class AB, while “100%” means class A. Even if the Bias is varied, the RF output will not change (up to the 75 Watts of maximum power under class A), and you can change the bias safely even when you are using a linear amplifier. ♏ TEMP This indicates the temperature (measured) of the final amplifier FETs’ heat sink. 0 - 100 °C, and above 80 °C is the “Red Zone” temperature range to be avoided, so as to ensure a safe operating temperature range. When the temperature rises above 80 °C, the fan speed will increase by a factor of four, providing a signifi cant increase in air flow. The heat sink tempera ture may rise appreciably during Class-A opera tion, especially if the ambient temperature is warm, and we recommend that you monitor the tempera ture during Class-A transmission, adjusting the Bias control downward (more toward Class AB) if excessive heating is observed. A lower bias level will cause less heat to be dissipated, thus reduc ing the heat sink temperature. ♐SWR This displays the SWR characteristic of the ama teur band that you are currently using, with points along the graph indicating the frequencies that have been measured.

SWEPT SWR DISPLAY It is possible to show the SWR characteristics and antenna performance on a graph by measuring the SWR at various points across an amateur band.

In order to measure the SWR of the antenna system correctly, please turn off the antenna tuner before measuring the SWR. 1. Please confirm that the RF output is over 10 Watts. In order to measure the SWR correctly, 10 Watts of RF output will be required. The TX RF output may be adjusted using the RF PWR knob. 2. Please confirm that the test transmission will not cause QRM to other stations (be sure to ask if the frequency is clear, and identify in accordance with regulations). Then press the [F6](SWR CK) key. 3. Perform the above procedure several times across the band, and the SWR measured at the various test frequencies will automatically be plotted on FTDX9000 TFT OPERATION MANUAL the chart, creating a performance characteristic graph for the current frequency range. Advice: For the purposes of plotting the SWR across the band, the resolution of the graph is every 10 kHz on the 1.8 ~ 24 .9 MHz bands, and 100 kHz on the 28/50 MHz bands. If a measurement is done on the same frequency as where a previous measurement was made, the old data will cleared and the new measurement data will replace it. Always observe proper operating courtesy to oth ers, and check to be sure the frequency is clear before performing any SWR measurements. Page 31

TEMPERATURE / SWR INDICATION USING THE MARKER ON THE SWR GRAPH It is possible to read the measured SWR value by placing the marker onto the desired frequency (measurement test point) of the SWR graph.

1. Press the [F2](MARKER) key to turn the marker function on; the marker cursor will be displayed. 2. Use the [F3](⍽) and [F4](⇪) keys to move the marker line and select the desired frequency for which you want to read the previously-measured SWR. Page 32 Advice: Please use an antenna with the SWR below 1.5:1. If the SWR is over 1.5:1, the final protection circuit activates, and the RF output power may be reduced. If the SWR is over 3.0 in the amateur band, there is a possibility that the coaxial cable or the antenna itself (antenna system) may have some problem. Please take the necessary corrective action so as to ensure optimum, safe performance in your station. The antenna tuner in the radio can match the SWR between the transceiver and the antenna; however, keep in mind that this is not affecting the SWR at the antenna feedpoint itself. In cases of higher-than desirable SWR, we recommend corrective action be taken at the antenna itself. When you want to clear the measured SWR value at the marker test point, press the [F2](MARKER) key. FTDX9000 TFT OPERATION MANUAL
