I have tried many mics on this rig and have found that the Heil PR-781 is best suited.

SSB bass  +3

SSB treble  +5

Compression ON wide 3

Running the compression at 3 gives the audio a well rounded response and is not too much, be sure to keep the mic gain set so that the ALC is at the lower to mid range on the meter, don't go any higher that half scale as it will begin to overdrive.

This will give you as close to a flat response as you'll get without external equalization.

  

ANOTHER GOOD TS-990 SETUP

Run the bandwidth at 10/3500 for normal ragchew OR 10/3000 can be used.

This setup is using the Heil PR-40, W2IHY EQPlus & 8 band Equalizer

The TS-990 equalizer is flat/off

8 band equalizer as follows:

50hz       +4

100hz     +3

200-1600hz    0

2400hz   +3

3200hz   +8

EQPlus as follows:

Mic Imp 600 ohms w/PR-40

Bass is 11 o'clock

Treble is 1 o'clock

Comp is 9 o'clock

DE Level is 7.5 o'clock

Output is 5 [almost max to accommocate iplus requirements] W2IHY recommends this, otherwise 12 o'clock without iplus

Gain is 12 o'clock

Delay is 9 o'clock

Level is 7.5 o'clock

Mon Level is 7 o'clock

  

The above is using the W2IHY 3x4 switch plus and the IPlus so that you can easily switch the mic/audio to any transceiver and any transceiver to any linear...

Thanks to Rod/WA0HHX for these settings!

To download newest firmware, click here.

  

If you are using the new firmware update:

Go to menu 085 (SSB TX BPF)

  

Where you used to find 3000WB, you will now find TTBF (4 kHz bandwidth ESSB mode) .

  

Push "MENU" button in and listen for beep to save the settings.

  

The FT-2000/FT2000D is now in the 50 Hz to 4 KHz transmit bandwidth.

  

To receive 4 kHz, put the "WIDTH" knob fully clockwise; You will see all of the LED's lit. Put the SHIFT knob in the center. You will see these changes on your DMU.

There is a secret "Power On" function built into the FTDX-5000 that allows the rig to transmit from 50Hz to 4kHz. It is called TTBF which stands for Total Transmit Bandwidth Frequency. Once enabled, it will extend your transmit bandwidth right out to 4kHz. You may need to re-EQ your mic to tailor it to this new bandwidth.

  

To enable TTBF, turn the radio ON while holding in DNF on the CENTER VFO-A and DNR on the FAR RIGHT VFO-B.

  

Note: The DNF and DNR are right next to each other in between these 2 Sub VFO's. Once done, push the MENU button and turn the CENTER Sub VFO-A to MENU 104 A3J. Next, turn the FAR RIGHT Sub VFO-B fully clockwise and TTBF will appear. If you did this Power On mod correctly, should see TTBF instead of 3000WB. If you still see 3000WB, that means your little Power ON "mod" is not done right. Ya gotta do it again.

  

Pprogram your CS button to take you directly to this menu so that if I need to change the TX bandwidth on a fly, I just hit the CS button and it'll prompt me right to it and change the BW quickly. This is one of the neatest feature of this rig since sliced bread :)

  

Note: The WIDTH control on the rig is the receiver's bandwith adjustment. For hi-fidelity audio reception, turn this knob fully clockwise. This is the one and only knob out of the whole rig that is turned "All The Way To The Right!" :) You'll see that the display will show WIDTH 4.00kHz and the receiver will open up nicely.

151 = 100

152 = -7

153 = 3

154 = 800

These settings are after performing the latest firmware updates and running a Electrvoice RE-20 with a EQ plus ( EQ plus settiings only using Equalizer function with bass at the 6th hash mark and treble fully clockwise.

W4JCW "new settings"

104=50-3000, 152=100, 153=5, 154=1, 155=1500, 156=6, 157=3, 158=3200,  159=10, 160=1, 161=200, 162=0, 163=2, 164=800, 165=0, 166=1, 167=2100, 168=0, 169=1.

With these settings, I am using the Electrovoice RE-20 into the W2IHT EQPlus and ONLY untilizing the equalizer with the bass set at  the first mark past 12 o'clock and the treble set at the second mark past 12 o'clock...adjust your gain/output setting and mic gain for proper ALC.

2) Hold the "AFL" and "ACM" buttons in while turning the power on.

3) Under menu "No. 070", the TTBF should now be ON. You're done!

4) To reverse the process, just repeat the process.

If you have a 6 kHz filter installed,

you can use WIDTH to select a wider passband.

  

In CONFIG:TX eSSB, change the parameter

from OFF to one of the provided selections

(3.5, 4.0, etc.).

  

With eSSB enabled, the transmit EQ menu entry name changes to MAIN:TX*EQ to allow you to independently adjust EQ at the selected wider bandwidth. The amount of adjustment required at each EQ band may vary depending on the selected eSSB transmit bandwidth. (See manual pg 36)
