VFO only works with the FT-101.
With the VFO 1000, tuning SSB is a snap. Most
hams operate on even 1KHz frequencies. So using
the 1KHz tuning step, SSB signals are received without
careful tuning as required with analog tuning.
Usually no tweaking is required. The VFO 1000 /
FT-101 is a Direct Digital External VFO for all Yaesu
FT-101 models except the FT-101Z and FT-101ZD.
It provides the VFO function of the FV-101B, with the
extreme accuracy and stability of modern digital
techniques. There is no installation except to
plug it into the External VFO connector on the
FT-101. A separate PTT connection is required to
use the RIT function, but is not required for normal
VFO operation. Each band can be easily
calibrated to compensate for aged crystals in the
transceiver. Once that is done, you will never
again be told that you are off frequency. There
are a total of 14 bands so the 3 extra bands could be
used to display the bands of a transverter. The
LCD is backlit. Power is from the FT-101.
EVEN IF YOU DON'T WANT A SECOND VFO, YOU CAN USE THE
VFO 1000 AS YOUR PRIMARY VFO, AND ENJOY THE ACCURACY
AND STABILITY OF THE LATEST DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY.
JUST SWITCH THE FT-101 TO EXTERNAL VFO FOR BOTH
RECEIVE AND TRANSMIT.
