The New FT-991A now includes a high-resolution full-colour 3.5″ TFT Touch panel for superior operability and visibility, incorporating a High-Speed Spectrum and High-Resolution real-time scope with ASC (Automatic Spectrum-scope control) built right in.
The FT-991A is designed for the most competitive operating situations, with a suite of new features to enhance the experience. Whether you primarily operate at home, mobile or in the field, the FT-991 will provide outstanding fundamental performance plus give you easy access to the full range of exciting modes available on the ham bands today.
Multi-colour waterfall display
The FT-991A now includes a Real-time Multi-colored waterfall display that enables you to quickly and easily identify and pick out signals without the need to mute the received audio.
Real-time Spectrum Scope with Automatic Scope Control (ASC). The new dynamic real-time spectrum scope gives radio operators the ability to graphically view the location of signals on the band while they listen to the received audio allowing them to quickly move to the desired signal. The strength of signals on the band can readily be seen on the Multi-color waterfall display. Chronological order colour differentiation allows operators to easily recognize weak signals at a glance; signals that might otherwise be missed on the spectrum scope.
Advanced Spectrum Scope with ASC (Automatic Spectrum-Scope Control) located just below the LCD display gives the operator all the information for comfortable QSO on the DXing scene.
3 kHz Roofing Filter for Enhanced Performance
The FT-991A now includes a 3Khz roofing filter for the triple conversion receiver that effective attenuates interfering signals and enables outstanding performance while still producing high-quality audio.
3.5 Inch Full-Colour TFT
The FT-991 could not provide functions easier than at your fingertips with a 3.5″ Full-Colour TFT Display for Superior Operability and Visibility.
State-of-the-art 32-bit Digital Signal Processing System. Recognizing an all-important Golden Rule of Amateur Radio – “You cannot work them if you cannot hear them”– the FT 991 features a rugged state-of-the-art highly balanced receiver circuit configuration. The high-speed floating point TMS320C6746 DSP chip (3000 MIPS / 2250 MFLOPS) from Texas Instruments used in the receiver design guarantees excellent interference rejection with actual signals under real-world conditions, not only on HF but also in the VHF and UHF bands.
100 Watts of Solid Performance. The RF Amplifier in the FT-991 provides a clean and solid 100 Watts of Operating Power (50 Watts VHF/UHF) and is combined with a large heat-sink and forced air automatic cooling fan to increase operating time and prevent overheating.
The FT-991 can be connected to a computer using a USB cable for CAT control and firmware updates, or the use of an integrated SCU-17 Interface Unit to support USB Audio In/Out, TX Control (PTT, key, shift).
High Accuracy TCXO
+/-0.5PPM high-resolution DDS/PLL local Oscillator included as part of the standard package.
Compact, Lightweight & Portable. The FT-991 Comes in a compact, lightweight package suitable for portable, mobile and base installations. Measuring 8.8″(W) x 3″ (H) x 9.9″ (L) at just 9.7 pounds this robust full-featured mobile/portable radio is ready to go when and where you are!
Internal Automatic Antenna Tuner. Internal High-Speed Automatic Antenna Tuner included in the package. The antenna tuner uses an LC switching network that has a large capacity of 100 channel memory. The tuning data is automatically memorized to reduce tuning time when changing frequency.
