The Yaesu FTdx101D and FTdx101MP transceivers are superb and highly rated radios but, if you own one or are considering buying one, are you aware of all the useful features and how achieve the full potential it offers? This is where the radiotoday guide to the Yaesu FTdx101 comes in. In common with all the other books in this Radio Today series, this book provides a practical and easy to understand guide to these great radios.
Covering both the Yaesu FTdx101D or FTdx101MP transceivers, the radiotoday guide to the Yaesu FTdx101 as always does not simply duplicate the manuals that describe each button, function, and control but is a 'how to do it' book. From the front panel that is dominated by the full-colour 7" touchscreen display to the VFO tuning knob, the book describes the use of the 'proper' buttons and knobs alongside setting the myriad of touchscreen controls. The function screen alone displays a bewildering array of 29 options including several Soft Keys that access deeper menu layers. This book describes what is needed from these options to get you operating the radios at their best. The Yaesu FTdx101 is described as a contest grade transceiver identical and cutting edge Hybrid SDR receivers to ensure top of the range IMD (intermodulation distortion) performance. The practical use of these is described, as is much of the book, in a step by step style. The book certainly does not stop here either with over 20 sections on setting up, different modes, troubleshooting and there is even a Quick Reference Guide.
The radiotoday guide to the Yaesu FTdx101 provides an easily understood insight into the setup and operation of these great radios that every owner or potential buyer will find invaluable.
