The Yaesu FT-900 is a compact and affordable HF transceiver which features a detachable front sub-panel that can be mounted separately from the main body. This capability allows the FT-900 to be configured for maximum safety, best display visibility, and ease of operation in mobile installations. Perfect as a high-performance base station, the FT-900 quickly doubles as a full-featured mobile or field-day rig. The FT-900 provides up to 100 watts adjustable power output on all HF amateur bands in CW, SSB and FM modes, and up to 25 watts carrier in AM. General coverage reception is possible from 100 kHz to 30 MHz. The lightweight, detachable sub-panel permits separating the transceiver and mounting the main unit in a remote location. This enables you to keep the most commonly used front-panel controls and display where you need them. Four microprocessors are programmed to provide the simplest possible control interface for the operator. The 2 x 5 keypad also serves as a quick band select. Two independent (A/B) VFOs for each band hold their own frequencies and mode settings. 100 memories store all of this data for both VFOs, giving a total of 220 independent sets of frequency, mode and other selections. The top panel has a speaker. There is carry handle on the right side. The rear panel features an SO-239 antenna jack and other I/O jacks. The FT-900 requires 13.8 VDC at 20 amps.
