Congratulations on the purchase of your Yaesu FT-920! Whether this is your first rig, or if Yaesu equipment isalready the backbone of your amateur radio station, it is our sincere hope that you will derive many years ofoperating enjoyment from your new transceiver.The FT-920 is a state-of-the-art amateur transceiver incorporating a multitude of advanced features to give youthe competitive edge in a wide variety of operating applications. The FT-920 offers up to 100 Watts of adjustablepower output on all amateur bands between 160 meters and 6 meters (25 Watts carrier in the AM mode),utilizing rugged, low-distortion MOS FET final amplifier transistors. Operation in the SSB, CW, AM, AFSK, andFSK modes is built in, and an FM module is available as an option.Yaesu’s renowned Omni-Glow™ LCD display provides a wealth of information regarding transceiver status, andit includes enhanced tuning aids for many operating applications.The built-in high-speed automatic antenna tuner may be utilized both on receive and transmit, providing im-proved impedance matching for the transmitter and protection from out-of-band signals on receive. A built-inDigital Voice Recorder allows storage and playback of incoming signals, and also allows you to store up to fourrepetitive messages (such as “CQ Contest. . .”) of up to 16 seconds each. And the Electronic Memory Keyeralso provides storage of CW messages, including incremented, imbedded contest numbers, to reduce operatorfatigue in contests. Independent K
EY
jacks on the front and rear panels allow connection of keyer paddles to one jack and a computer or straight key to the other, for optimum contest work. A CW Pitch control and Spot toneprovide efficiency in operating, and both full QSK and semi-break-in CW (VOX switching) are provided.The receiver section is highlighted by the high-performance Digital Signal Processing filters, which providerazor-sharp selectivity, an automatic seeking Notch filter, and Noise Reduction. The high-intercept front endcircuitry includes ten input bandpass filters with PIN diode switching, optimized RF preamplifiers for both highand low bands, and Intercept Point Optimization (IPO) for high-signal, high-noise environments. A separatereceive-only antenna jack is provided, in addition to the two main TX/RX jacks, for connection of a Beverage orother low-noise receiving antenna.Yaesu’s exclusive Shuttle Jog tuning dial provides simple yet quick frequency excursions around the band.Independent tuning knobs for the two VFOs join direct keyboard frequency entry, one-touch band change, andextensive scanning capabilities to make the FT-920 a joy to use. And the FT-920’s extensive memory system,sporting 99 regular memories, ten split-frequency memories, five QMB (Quick Memory Bank) channels, and aneasy-access “C
ALL
” channel for each band, provides the utmost in operating ease. Each of the memories (ex-cept the QMB channels) can be assigned an alpha-numeric label of up to seven characters, to aid in memorychannel identification.A host of convenience features is provided, including a Digital Speech Processor, SSB monitor circuit, all-modeSquelch, VOX, and a continuously-variable RF power control. Yaesu’s CAT System for external computer con-trol includes a built-in RS-232C level converter and DB-9 serial port on the rear panel, for easy connection toyour home computer. And the extensive Menu system allow the owner to configure literally dozens of transceiverperformance characteristics, such as voice audio response patterns, keyer weight, tuning steps, and poweroutput to be applied to each antenna jack. The FT-920 clearly is the cost-performance leader in the AmateurRadio industry today!Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the many features available in the FT-920, as described in thepages to follow. At Yaesu, we appreciate your investment in this fine transceiver, and we hope that you will takethe time to read this manual thoroughly so as to get the most out of your new FT-920!
