The Yaesu FTDX-10 is a shortwave transceiver with 100W transmit power and a Hybrid SDR receiver. Hybrid SDR means that Yaesu uses two receiver trains simultaneously - a narrowband SDR with downconverter to 9 MHz, switchable roofing filters and digital SDR technology from the IF. And in parallel, a wideband, direct-scanning SDR that provides the colour 5" LC display with a high-resolution waterfall and precise spectrum. This way, excellent values such as 116 dB RMDR and 141 dB BDR are achieved. It is not without reason that the FTDX-101 with the same receiver concept is ranked number 1 in the renowned Sherwood list.

Three built-in roofing filters (500 Hz, 3 and 15 kHz), together with the well-known DSP filters, ensure silence on the band, QRM becomes controllable. The 15 (!) bandpass filters also contribute to this, ensuring that the AD-converter does not have to process unnecessary out-of-band signals. Last but not least, the 250 MHz DDS synthesiser should be mentioned, which ensures exceptionally low phase noise - just like the FTDX-101. All in all, these features contribute to one of the best shortwave receivers of our time.
The rugged transmitter delivers up to 100 W output power (25 W in AM). A MOSFET power amplifier in 'push/pull' technology is used. This ensures clean signals. The transmitting power can be reduced to a minimum of 5 W.
The Hybrid SDR receiver concept from Yaesu, as used in the FTDX-101D and FTDX-101MP, offers the chance to be at the top of the game. The new compact FTDX-10 HF transceiver from Yaesu uses exactly the same receiver system.
The operation of the FTDX-10 is based on the good experience of the larger models. The colour 5" touch display offers fast and precise navigation on the bands and selection of the most important operating parameters. By the way, the screen content can also be displayed on an external monitor, a DVI connection makes this possible. The VFO knob is surrounded by another ring on the outside, typical for Yaesu, which greatly facilitates the operation of the clarifier, memory and user-specific functions. At the same time, the more compact design of the FTDX-10 provides a thoughtful arrangement of the most important controls. Everything is easily and quickly accessible - as you would expect from Yaesu. The 60m band is ready to use as delivered. If the 4m band should be of interest, the transmitter can also be extended for this band.
The use of operating modes such as PSK-31, RTTY and CW is greatly facilitated by the built-in decoder. The interfaces are both RS-232 (CAT, PTT) and USB (audio, CAT, PTT). A special feature are ide USB inputs, to which a conventional PC keyboard and mouse can be connected! This makes the clearly structured menu system even easier to use. If the FTDX-10 transceiver is to be controlled remotely over the internet, the SCU-10LAN option is available.
