Price/quality: great 100% transceiver!
Time owned: more than 12 months
I use FTdx3000d for almost 2 years: it is the best receiver and transmitter in my shack.
In 40 years of radio I've used many of transceiver. This receiver has good DSP DRN APF BW SHIFT CONT etc ... filters, the FTdx3000d do exactly what they need to do !!!
Working at 50Hz/APF CW is exceptional (50Hz and not 500Hz!!!) without the classic whistle when many dsp tight that would make it unusable: the FTdx3000d works very well.
I have had many radio, from the early FTdx500/505 to TS288 and 277 and similar to 1000 MKII,until the recent 950 and 2000, to the various DRAKE R4 / T4 to TR7, TenTec from ARGONAUT 509 to recents ... from Kenwood TS840 590 930 940 and 950SDX (great radio) and many others including Elecraft Kx etc ...
The last used a FT2000 that had and has several "flaws": with the FTdx3000d I are reborn.
Finally a trasceiver with ZERO structural defects and that works immediately as you turn it on, by menu default!!
With the latest UPDATE MAIN_0119 also the SSB power is adjusted on the front which was a complication of use.
It has a particular ergonomics, not a defect but a constructive choice that competes with the best brands on the market also four times more expensive.
Do you want a dual receiver and you like more buttons? Logically not choose it!
You want a transceiver more than 4 times expensive? Then take a TS990.
FTdx3000d has an essential feature: cheap and it works perfectly well and with a great menu and management with the filters and the dsp working so exceptional.
I have some collection of ideas and evidence on my PC server, try them to:
From the exceptional characteristics, quality price, definitely a transceiver certainly not to be underestimated!
