had two 990's both worked well, really well built radio, but they suffer hiss noise coming out of the speaker, this clears up if you switch on the scaf [sign in to see URL] is the pin diodes.

Re: yeasu ft990


I used the 990 for a few years, I have to say it was an absolute dream. The tuner would tune anything I threw at it, RX was fantastic, no problems with any hiss for me. Never had a bad audio report from anyone while using that radio. Like has been said it is the same as a FT-1000 but without some of the extra bells and whistles, same tuner, same PSU and 90% of the same internals.

Only problem is Yaesu don't support the radio any more so if any faults did develop it would be extremely hard to find replacement parts. 10 out of 10 for me though, fantastic radio.
