Fox Tango International Presents the ZL FT-200 Newsletters

A series of articles of interest to the

 FT-200, FT-250, Tempo One

Owners on CD ROM

Brief History: The FT-200 club was originated by ZL1BBU in December 1971 by 1974 the articles were dwindling and club produced the FT-200  instruction and maintenance manual.  The manual contains most of all the technical articles about the FT-200 less the social issues of the club.  Since no original copies of the manual could be found after much searching, we decided to publish this disk with what was available (copies made from copies) so  we apologize for the quality of the FT-200 Newsletters.  When and if we ever find originals this disk will be reissued.

The Yaesu FT-200 is an SSB/CW transceiver that covers the pre-WARC amateur bands from 80m to 10m. An early hybrid transceiver mostly tubes with a solid state VFO, it provides around 180watts PEP, good stability and a very good receiver design even under today's crowded band conditions.  The design first saw the light of day in the late 60's in a gray and silver case. It was also sold by the European importers as the Sommerkamp FT250 and by Henry Radio of Los Angeles California in the USA as the "Tempo One" (black and silver case).  Accessories included an accompanying FP-200 AC power pack to provided  necessary voltages from one transformer for 117 or 234 volt AC mains and front firing loudspeaker. An external VFO FV-200 and a DC-200 12 volt power unit was also available for mobile use.  The Ft-200 was introduced in October of 1968 and sold into the 1970s.
