Author Topic: Yaesu FT1000MP - MARK V vs. FIELD model  (Read 710 times)

Am thinking of starting up my station again and the Yaesu FT1000 Mark V sure looks attractive.

Can someone tell me if the only difference in the standard model and the field model is the reduced power and no additional (12 & 30VDC) power supply?

Are they identical otherwise?  US$500 more for 100w is a lot.

Anyone have either model and care to tell me about it?

Thanks!

There are numerous differences that generally favor the MK-V (non-Field version), and they are pretty well outlined in the QST product review on line here:

http://www.arrl.org/members-only/prodrev/pdf/pr0208.pdf

I've used the 1000MP and the 1000MP-MK V, but not the Field, so I relied heavily on the product review noted above in drawing my conclusion that I'd prefer to have a used MK-V than a new Field -- unless, that is, I'd be operating "portable" (such as Field Day) a lot with it, in which case the Field's ability to work from a 12V battery renders it more useful.

Thanks for the fast response.  Unfortunately, my ARRL membership lapsed a year ago when I dismantled my old station.  I'll have to renew and purchase that review.

I suspected there was more of a difference than met the eye between the two, and you confirmed it.

Thanks again for the heads-up!
