Yaesu FT2000 HF/6m Beautiful radio, Located in Adelaide for a week or two, then in Tangambalanga North East VK3 After.  It also may be able to be dropped to a new buyer in the Riverland if your part of the club.  Owner, well its kind of me, but a funny situation with my mate Dene VK5DO.  The good news  its a bargain at $1500, they should pull $2000 generally so contact me if your interested and we may be able to help with the freight situation once we know where you are.  If neded, easily can be posted at buyers expense.
OK, read below the usual Brenton cut and paste information and pix and youtube videos.
If not sold, Im definately keeping and chasing a DMU2000 to suit it.  I have no room for it, but if someone does not grab it at $1500, Im just going to bite the bullet even with the space issues.
The new radio shack as to be finished one day, building with a broken foot is proving a testing time.  The new shack would be finished if I could just stay on a ladder without falling off...Doh!!!!
Trust me, my 7.105 net mates have it covered, best one has been the new nickname Pegleg.

The Yaesu FT-2000 follows in the tradition of venerable FT-1000 series, and incorporates an amazing number of advanced features from the FT-9000 series. The FT-2000 provides a full 100 watts of power output (AM: 25 W) on the 160-6 Meter Amateur bands, and the U.S. version includes a special memory bank containing the five 60-meter channels, as well. Superb continuous receive from 30 kHz to 60 MHz is provided. The receiver front-end includes VRF (Variable RF Tuning) preselector which works in conjunction with a bank of fixed bandpass filters. This provides a front-line defense against strong out of band signals. The result is improved dynamic range and a higher intercept point than other designs. The First IF roofing filters (3/6/15 kHz) increase dynamic range in crowded band conditions. Variable IF Width and IF Shift allow precise interference rejection, and the receiver DSP also includes an Auto-Notch, Manual Notch, Digital Noise Reduction, and a continuously-variable passband Contour control. The WIDTH control has a mode-determined adjustment range of 200 Hz – 4 kHz for SSB, and 25 Hz to 2.4 kHz on CW, and a mode-optimized “Narrow” key provides one-touch narrowing of the bandwidth to a user-determined preset value. You can also tailor your transmit signal. You have tremendous control over the fidelity and/or “talk power” of your SSB signal, thanks to the variable SSB bandwidth capability in the Menu. The default bandwidth is 2.4 kHz (300 – 2400 Hz @ -6 dB), but you also have selections of 50 – 3000 Hz, 100 – 2900 Hz, 200 – 2800 Hz and 400 – 2600 Hz, allowing you to select the bandwidth best suiting your operating needs. The DMU-2000 Data Management Unit shown above is optionalandnot included in this sale. This radio comes with the MH-31 B8 hand mic.

This transceiver is available in two configurations, this is the  
   Yaesu FT-2000:    A 100 watt version with internal power supply.

PS.....My favorite youtube video on the list is number 4, you wont learn a thing about the radio but the non english music is just excellent.  Music that would work well in "Vikings" or any of the new medieval TV shows...
