The ever popular FT-991 has now been replaced with the new FT-991A. The two main improvements are a realtime spectrum scope and a multi-colour waterfall display. Here at Waters & Stanon we have tested out the new FT-991A and there is a video now available on our YouTube channel. The waterfall display is a big improvement and can be switched on or off in the menu system. The total bandwidth of the display is 50 / 100 / 200 / 500 and 1000kHz. It is a very worthwhile addition. Check out our videos on YouTube.
The manufacturer's information:
The FT-991A is the next-generation of the widely popular FT-991. Like its predecessor, the FT-991A is creatively designed to fit into a very compact (W9.0" xH3.2" x D9.3") rugged case and will deliver up to 100 Watts solid output power (50 Watts on 144/430MHz) on SSB, CW, AM, FM, Packet and C4FM Digital on the popular HF/50/144/430MHz Bands.
In keeping with the spirit of the rich performance of the FT-991, the new FT-991A provides two new stimulating and useful advanced features - a Real-time Spectrum Scope and a Multi-Colour Waterfall Display.
The new dynamic real-time spectrum scope gives radio operators the ability to graphically view the location of signals on the band while they listen to the received audio allowing them to quickly move to the desired signal. The strength of signals on the band can readily be seen on the multi-colour waterfall display. Chronological order colour differentiation allows operators to easily recognise weak signals at a glance; signals that might otherwise be missed on the spectrum scope.
These additional exciting functions enable more efficient and satisfying operating time while making important contacts on the crowded HF and 6metre bands. We believe that the new FT-991A will be widely accepted as an ideal field gear rig by the majority of the ham radio operators who want to enjoy reliable and flawless communication on all the HF and V/UHF bands with just one radio.
The new FT-991A naturally contains all the features packed into the original version of the FT-991 including a 3kHz Roofing Filter for the triple conversion receiver that effectively attenuates interfering signals and enables outstanding performance while still producing high quality audio. The 32bit high speed floating point DSP provides effective cancellation and reduction (DNR) of random noise, and the Auto Notch (DNF) automatically eliminates QRM caused by dominant beat tones while the receiver's Contour function and APF (Audio Peak Filter) can be used to further reduce undesired noise. A built-in 3.5inch full-colour touch screen high resolution display allows stress-free operability and visibility. for further detailed information, please refer to the attached specification sheet.
The new FT-991A will be avaliable October 2016.
