The Yaesu FT-991A transceiver has proved a very popular radio in recent years. It is not hard to see why, as this compact radio with a full colour display delivers up to 100 Watts on SSB, CW, AM, FM, Packet and C4FM Digital on the 160-6m, 2m and 70cm bands. However, are users getting the best from everything that this radio has to offer? That is where well-known author Andrew Barron steps in with another in his Radio Today series that brings you the practical guide to getting the most out this highly rated transceiver.
The FT-991 was released in 2015 and the FT-991A replaced it in 2016. The major difference between the two models is that the FT-991A has a 'real time' spectrum scope with a multi-coloured waterfall display. Andrew not only looks at the features that are included in this radio but it is presented alongside a practical and easy to understand guide to getting the most out of this radio. The big advantage of the FT-991A is that it is a "shack in a box." As it provides all-mode coverage of the 2m and 70cm bands as well as the HF bands. This gives you FM repeaters, VHF or UHF DX, Satellites, System Fusion, or Wires-X all of which come in for the same Andrew Barron treatment - a practical guide to using them and making the most of them. There is much more included in radiotoday guide to the Yaesu FT-991A that makes this a comprehensive guide to what is without doubt a great radio.
As always, the Radio Today series the radiotoday guide to the Yaesu FT-991A is not simply a 'rehash' of the Yaesu User Manual, nor does it try to replace it. If you own a Yaesu FT-991A or are just interested in how they work before buying one this highly illuminating guide is something no owner or potential buyer should be without.
