Yaesu Twin with FTdx-5000's
« on: 2020-10-20, 23:22:00 »
I would like to hear from any other members using these radios in the Yaesu Twin configuration.  I have been operating a pair of FT5K's for the past few months, still working out a number of things between my control QTH in Boston and the remote QTH in Quebec.  The Remoterig manual shows the configuration of the two sites with the recommendation to connect dummy loads to the antenna ports of the control radio.  But the control radio does not actually generate RF except in the Tune mode--the RF is generated at the remote site.  Is Tune the only reason for a dummy load at the control site?  I also find some FT5K functions are not passed by the RRC--the audio filter width and IF shift are not adjustable.  Is this confirmed by other users of this radio?

 DSP filter width and IF shift are passing via the RRC.  But I have not heard from any others on this Forum who use FTdx-5000 radios in Yaesu Twin configuration.  Am I alone?
