The all-solid-state FT-7B mobile transceiver provides high
performance on the 80 through 10 meter bands. The operator
may select upper or lower sideband (USB, LSB), AM, or CW
operation, and the compact package contains many features
engineered for maximum convenience during mobile operation.
The TUNE control provides single-knob peaking of all
transceiver circuits, thus eliminating inconvenient plate
and load controls. Transmitter final amplifier input power
is adjustable, up to a level of 100 watts. A high
performance noise blanker minimizes impulse-type noise such
as that found in mobile applications. Also built-in are a
100 kHz crystal calibrator and receiver offset tuning
(clarifier). For CW operation, an audio peak filter plus
semibreak-in with sidetone are provided.
The receiver front end utilizes MOS FET and Schottky diode
circuitry for maximum sensitivity and immunity from overload.
The FT-7B operates directly from a 13.5 VDC power source.
For base station operation, the FP-12 power supply may be
used to provide the necessary voltage.
In order to derive the maximum satisfaction from your new
FT-7B, we recommend that you read this instruction manual
carefully, so as to understand fully the functions of the
controls and switches.
The YC-7B outboard digital frequency display unit is an
available option for your FT-7B, providing versatile digital
readout of your .operating frequency. The YC-7B may be
situated on the dash board, steering column, or other
convenient location, for maximum visibility and driving safety.
