 said about his recent FTdx3000 purchase from ML&S:

"Dear Martin,
I was made very welcome and 'looked' after in the proper customer service sense on Saturday, never pressured and allowed to explore all of the wonderful delights out on show. I bought a new Yaesu FTDX 3000, initial reaction it has everything I'd hoped for.
A very big thank you has to go to every one there, some I don't know their names, from the coffee maker to Tony who spent time on the phone with me on Friday to Steve the technical man (star of YouTube and looks better in the flesh) to Richard your Sales Manager.  The 270 mile round trip was worth it, even the M25 was a doddle both ways.
Congratulations on a super new store and I wish you and everyone at ML&S all the best and continued success.   
Kindest regards,
Mike - M0AZE, March 2015"

Read what David G7LJV said about his recent FTdx3000 purchase from ML&S:


Many thanks for your advice, assistance and patience in helping me (finally) choose the right radio!

Unsurprisingly, the FTDX-3000 is absolutely superb and in performance terms is significantly better than any radio I have previously owned.  It is also remarkably logical and easy to operate, although I have yet to absorb every page of the weighty user's manual!

Whilst I never thought I would spend so much on a transceiver (parsimonious is my middle name), the Yaesu is worth every penny (even if the price reported to my wife had the decimal point moved one place to the left).

Finally, in this age of disposable consumerism, it is refreshing and reassuring to receive such excellent customer service - thanks Richard!

Kind regards,

David - G7LJV, April 2013"

FT DX 3000 Brief Description:

The Amazing Crystal Roofing Filter performance has been proven in the FT DX 5000

The Down conversion 9 MHz 1st IF frequency receiver construction can realise narrow 300 Hz (optional), 600 Hz and 3 kHz bandwidth roofing filters.

Implementing the extra sharp Crystal Roofing Filters provides superior close-in dynamic range and affords the best receiver performance possible.

Outstanding Receiver performance is the heritage of the FT DX 5000
The Essential elements in receiver performance are the RF amplifier and the 1st mixer.
The RF Amplifier has optimized NF points, and the over-sized wide range RF transformer exhibits minimum saturation in strong signal processing. The optimized devices were selected to guarantee superior multi-signal RX performance.
The desired maximum performance has been realized in the development of the FT DX 3000 receiver circuitry. This new radio has the high dynamic rance IP3 performance that was realized and proven in the FT DX 5000.

IF DSP provides effective and optimized QRM rejection
The 32 bit high speed floating decimal DSP (max 2800 MIPS) provides effective cancellation/reduction (DNR) of the random noise that is frequently found on the HF Frequencies.
Auto-Notch (DNF) that automatically eliminates the dominant beat tone
CONTOUR and APF; very effective receiver noise reduction tools in the HF band operations.
Yaesu original DSP QRM and noise reduction are also provided with the new FT DX 3000.

Large and Wide Colour LCD Display
The high-resolution (480 x 272 dots) 3.5-inch wide colour LCD displays the operating information and the status of the transceiver functions.
The various FT DX 3000 functions are displayed on this LCD and provide the operator with easy to read operating information.

High Speed Spectrum Scope built-in
Although the FT DX 3000 only has one receiver, a high speed Spectrum Scope is built into the radio.
When in Auto Mode, the Spectrum Scope display is updated in real time.
The maximum bandwidth of the scope is 1 MHz, and the minimum span width setting is 20 kHz. The best desired span is selectable for the high-resolution display. The current band activity can be monitored in real time.

AF SCOPE display and RTTY/PSK encoder/decoder (optional)
The optional AF SCOPE and optional RTTY encoder/decoder functions have been developed for the FT DX 3000.
The wave form of the AF SCOPE signal can be displayed on the TFT LCD. Also, the RTTY/PSK text may be displayed on the LCD.

Independent Frequency Display
The Main operating frequency is the most important display in the radio, with VFO-A frequency located just above the main dial.
The newly-developed LCD has a wider viewing angle and higher contrast for convenient and effortless viewing.

Other Features:

  • Built-In Specialised Receiver amplifier for 50 MHZ
  • Three antenna connectors are provided, with the possibility of assigning the "ANT-3" connector to "RX-Only"
  • Signal output for an external receiver
  • 9 MHz IF output
  • High Speed Automatic antenna tuner built-in
  • Optional µ-tune unit available

I couldn't believe how good the filtering is on this radio, the audio from this radio is brilliant, so glad I got this radio.

I have owned this transceiver for a couple of weeks now. Excellent in all respects, from the operation and performance of the radio to the faultless service from ML&S.
Bought this radio to replace my FT 1000mp and the difference is amazing., the signals that i can hear are loud and clear.and morse code just jumps out the radio . The filters are amazing.and all the features are to long to list.. If you are looking at the ftdx1200n like i was, then i recommend the extra for this radio...its amazing. and the guys from M&L wher great in answering any questions i had.
Yeasu ftdx3000
My last three hf rigs I purchased from ML&Sons. They were an ICOM 706, Yeasu Ft950 and the last one the Yeasu FTDX3000. Th 3000 has been my dream machine and the receiver is amazing. I spent quite a bit of time in HRO comparing rigs and this one was the best. Sorry HRO I ended up purchasing from ML&Sons because of the excellent customer service I have had from them over 20 years!

Just purchased the FTdx3000 to replace my old FT950 and what a difference. Not that the 950 was bad but the FTdx3000 is just amassing. Connecting 3 antennas and still have RX Out for my SDRplay RSP makes for a formidable combo. Noise levels has gone down on all bands and the display/menu structure makes for easy management. CAT control is just as easy as anything. Had the FTdx3000 for only 2 days but already a very positive addition to the shack.
Excellent Radio
after owning this radio for a few years now I can honesty say this is a radio with a brilliant receiver the noise reduction combined with contour brings out weak signals like they are in the same room, I cannot find fault with this radio other than the fact I should have purchased it long before I did this combined with my Heil PR-781 and innovantennas xr6c yagi have enable me to get past the 100 countries worked mark very happy ML & S customer de G0UDG
Still Brill
I have owned many radios - many more than once (probably bought Mr Lynch a car over the years, or a pushbike at least!) so have lots of experience of radios to form the basis of what is good and bad when it comes to HF Transceivers. I have recently gone back to the FTDX-3000. What a receiver! Its so close to the FTDX-5000 - for the casual op, there's no difference. With most radios on the market having excellent specs nowadays what sets the 3000 apart? Its the warm, rich audio - even from the internal speaker and the DSP that pushes the noise and dirt down, and brings the otherwise hard to hear stations up that puts it up there as one of the greats. I toyed with trying an FTDX-1200 but the 300Hz roofing filter and general selectivity numbers made me go for another FTDX-3000. I promise to keep this one - at least for a month!
De G4AZC I have held a callsign and been professionally involved with Marine and Amateur radio for over 40 years. I would not have belived it possible for a radio to be as good as this. Faultless in every respect, Put the DNR on and 7MHz WAB sounds like FM, just like 30 years ago before Mf and HF noise levels rose to S9. 5W on topband gives S9+ reports all the time. Superb audio reports. Unbelievably good radio. Well built and ergonomially superb. No I am not being paid to write this, just very very impressed ....................................................

Having owned an FT950 for some time and with very noisy HF ,I was looking for something ' a bit special' to try an eliminate some of this noise and to upgrade to a suitable rig, a swift phone call to Martin Lynch put me right and I purchased an FT3000 and never looked back, what a rig!! has surpassed ALL my expectations WELL DONE Martin Lynch!! (again)
Purchased my 3000 from Lynch's back in March. Fantastic service, delivered next day and blown away by the radio. First class as always from ML&S. Thanks.
Highly Recommended I Purchased this radio only a few weeks ago to replace my Ft900at, and have to say its the best purchase I have made in a long time well done on the excellent service and quick delivery time. The transceiver is excellent on receive and I have been getting great audio reports despite only using the default microphone that came with the radio worth every penny paid
FTDX 3000 D
FT 920, FT 950, ? , = FTDX 3000 D. Looked at numerous mid range TXVR's. Kept returning to the 3000. After much research, talking to owners, and Yaesu's cash back offer, I bought one. Had it three weeks now, and thrilled, to say the least. Good layout, quiet receiver, very good filtering, easy to operate. Use a Heil PR 781 with it, now got the EQ, Gain, and processer, set up for DX, and the comments are most pleasing. The only feature I would not miss, is the scope, I now use waterfall, which is quite good. This is a 6/5 rig ! David. SM7JKD, G4HUT.
I purchased my FTdx3000 from ML&S in January. 2013 This transceiver is a gem it is very versitile come with good spec, its performance is all that a discerning amateur would wish for at a realistic price. the menu system is very easy to use, the large display panel is excellent, the scope is a very useful feature useful when searching for free frequencies on some of the congested bands, the DNR is again a feature that works well, handbook is very comprehensive and easy to use. All in all a very good piece of kit. I upgraded from FT950 which was in its self excellent, but in my opinion if you can afford that little extra cash go for it. Martyn Lynch Ltd are to be recommended for their professional customer service. George G0CMF
