Status Request

FT2000RC requests all YAESU Transceiver parameters - roundabout 90 parameters - when the application starts, when the transceiver is switched on, when you connect to a remote server and automatically every three minutes. You will notice how all controls are updated within a few seconds. So you don't really need a manual status request.

Controls

There are a couple of track bars (sliders) to adjust the most important transmitter and receiver settings. The transmitter controls have a red background, the receiver controls a green one. Some of the controls are grayed out/disabled unless you switch on the function through the buttons, for example NB, Notch, Contour and DNR. Selecting one of the controls from the Controls Menu sets the focus to the control.

Control Sliders

Use the Cursor Up, Cursor Down, Page Up, Page Down, Pos 1 or End keys or the mouse to adjust the values when the control has received the focus. The focus is shown with a yellow-dotted line around the slider.

Page Up / Page Down allow to faster change values. Pos 1 sets the control to the maximum possible value, End to the minium possible value with one keystroke. If the IF Shift control has the focus press 0 to set it back to zero. Same applies to the Clarifier control.

Meter  

The value of each control is displayed at the bottom of the control as well as hint when you hold the mouse over the control - some relative in percent, others absolute. At the same time the control name and value is displayed in the meter for a few seconds.
