The FT-991A is the next-generation of the widely popular FT-991. Like its predecessor, the FT-991A is
creatively designed to fit into a very compact (W9.0” xH3.2” x D9.3”) rugged case and will deliver up to 100
Watts solid output power (50 Watts on 140/430MHz) on SSB, CW, AM, FM, Packet and C4FM Digital on the
popular HF/50/140/430MHz bands.
In keeping with the spirit of the rich performance of the FT-991, the new FT-991A provides two new stimulating
and useful advanced features - a Real-time Spectrum Scope and a Multi-Color Waterfall Display.
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 color differentiation allows operators to easily recognize weak signals at a glance; signals that might
otherwise be missed on the spectrum scope.
These additional exciting functions enable more efficient and satisfying operating time while making important
contacts on the crowded HF and 6 meter bands. We believe that the new FT-991A will be widely accepted as
an ideal field gear rig by the majority of the ham radio operators who want to enjoy reliable and flawless
communication on all the HF and V/UHF bands with just one radio.
The new FT-991A naturally contains all the features packed into the original version of the FT-991 including a
3kHz roofing filter for the triple conversion receiver that effectively attenuates interfering signals and enables
outstanding performance while still producing high quality audio. The 32bit high speed floating point DSP
provides effective cancellation and reduction (DNR) of random noise, and the Auto Notch (DNF) automatically
eliminates QRM caused by dominant beat tones while the receiver’s Contour function and APF (Audio Peak
Filter) can be used to further reduce undesired noise. A built-in 3.5inch full-color touch screen high
resolution display allows stress-free operability and visibility.
