But using the Menu, you can assign, for example, 50 and 144 MHz to the rear panel, if your coaxial cables have matching plugs.
FT-817ND Receiver Enahncement Features
IF Shift for reduction of adjacent-frequency interference. IF Noise Blanker Ð For reduction of ignition and other impulse-type noise. IPO (Intercept Point Optimization) Bypasses RX Preamp on HF/50 MHz for improved performance during strong-signal conditions. ATT (Front End Attenuator) For more pleasant reception of very strong signals.
Outstanding CW Features
CW Semi Break-in, with T/R recovery delay programmable from 10 ms - 2500 ms. At 10 ms setting, performance emulates QSK operation. CW Reverse: provides BFO injection from LSB-side, instead of default USB-side. CW Pitch Control: adjusts TX offset and (identical) sidetone between 300 Hz and 1000 Hz in 50 Hz steps; this allows precise spotting on DX stations. Sidetone level is adjustable. ¥ Built-in Electronic Keyer, with speed adjustable between 4 WPM and 60 WPM, and Weight (Dot:Dash Ratio) adjustable between 1:2.5 and 1:4.5.
