It has 100 alphanumeric memories, spectrum display, Twin PBT, CTCSS encode/decode, APF, two stage preamp, keypad entry, automatic antenna tuner and electronic keyer. DSP digitally transposes receive audio components in all modes of operation to produce desired AF frequency characteristics at the IF stage of the transceiver. This built-in DSP provides: noise reduction, automatic notch filter and selectable APF. The digital bar graph meter displays ALC, power output and SWR simultaneously! The radio automatically selects from the three separate antenna inputs (HF, 6 meters, 2 meters). A built-in automatic antenna tuner operates on the HF bands plus 6 meters.
