FT1000mp MkV power supply question

Post by ian »

Hi guys I've went and bought a Yaesu FT1000mp MkV and was reading that the power supply is 30v and 13.8v . My question is can I run it with a 13.8v power supply or do I need to use a 30v supply, I've been looking on the internet for some info about it but cant find any. Also can someone explain about the rx antenna in and out, I don't understand about the rx out, again can't find anything about it on the net and the manual doesn't say much about it either .

No unless its the 1000mp mkv field, 100w runs off a regular 13.8v DC supply, the 1000mp mkv is a 200w radio & comes with an external dual voltage AC supply.

"An antenna with a poor ground using few radials cannot have a support mast grounded to the radial common point (at least it shouldn't if designed properly) There is no exception to this!

the out put tranies require more volts hence the bigger supply. As far as i remember it will only run on that supply and will not on a 13.8v
rx antenna here is what i have saved in my mp file
If you want to receive on a separate antenna (such as a Beverage) than
the Tx antenna ("A" or "B"), connect the separate Rx antenna to the "Rx
In" jack and depress the "ANT RX" pushbutton just below the S-meter (next
to the "IPO" pushbutton).

Depressing the "ANT RX" pushbutton connects the "RX ANT IN" jack to the
receiver and disconnects the selected main (transmit) antenna ("A" or
"B") from the receiver.

Depressing the "ANT RX" pushbutton also connects the selected main
antenna to the "RX ANT -OUT" jack while not transmitting. The block
diagram shows that you can use this feature in two ways:

1) You can connect the "RX ANT OUT" jack to an external receiver (which
will receive signals from the selected main antenna).

2) Or you can connect it to the input of an external pre-amp (or external
filter), with the output of the pre-amp (or filter) connected to the "RX
ANT IN" jack. The pre-amp would then be used for amplifying received
signals from the main antenna.

So, to use the "OUT" jack, the "ANT RX" must be depressed. Of course, if
you use the "OUT" jack for an external pre-amp, then you'll also be using
the "IN" jack for the pre-amp, so then you can't hook a Beverage to the
"IN" jack.

If you have a separate Rx antenna that requires a pre-amp, don't use the
"OUT" jack. Hook the separate Rx antenna directly to the input of the
pre-amp and hook the output of the pre-amp to the "IN" jack, and depress
the "ANT RX" pushbutton. (Of course, the "OUT" jack can still be used
for an external receiver.)

Thanks for the information I understand about the rx antenna in and out now. I'll be stuck if I need a new power supply I'll need to get a back up 30 volt supply. Thanks guys
