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.
State of the Art Digital Signal Processing
Recognizing an all-important Golden Rule Amateur Radio - “You cannot work them if you cannot hear them”– the FT 991A features a rugged state-of-the-art highly balanced receiver circuit configuration. The high-speed floating point TMS320C6746 DSP chip (3000 MIPS / 2250 MFLOPS) from Texas Instruments used in the receiver design guarantees excellent interference rejection with actual signals under real-world conditions, not only on HF but also in the VHF and UHF bands.
3.5" TFT Color Display
The FT-991A could not provide functions easier than at your fingertips with a 3.5" Full Color TFT Display for Superior Operability and Visibility.
100 Watts of Solid Performance
The RF Amplifier in the FT-991A provides a clean and solid 100 Watts of Operating Power (50 Watts VHF/UHF) and is combined with a large heat-sink and forced air automatic cooling fan to increase operating time and prevent overheating.
Compact, Lightweight & Portable
The FT-991A Comes in a compact, lightweight package suitable for portable, mobile and base installations. Measuring 8.8"(W) x 3" (H) x 9.9" (L) at just 9.7 pounds this robust full featured mobile/portable radio is ready to go when and where you are!
Internal Automatic Antenna Tuner
Internal High Speed Automatic Antenna Tuner included in the package. The antenna tuner uses a LC switching network that has a large capacity 100 channel memory. The tuning data is automatically memorized to reduce tuning time when changing frequency.
High Accuracy TCXO
+/-0.5PPM High Resolution DDS/PLL local Oscillator included as part of the standard package.
The FT-991A can be connected to a computer using a USB cable for CAT control and firmware updates, or the use of an optional SCU-17 Interface Unit to support USB Audio In/Out, TX Control (PTT, Key, Shift).
