The new Yaesu FTDX10 ranks third on Sherwood Engineering’s list of receiver test data, only surpassed by the premium FTDX101 and Flex 6700. It has amazing performance in a compact package, at a very reasonable price!

I called Giga Parts and HRO today on placing an order for the FTDX10 but did not go ahead cause they wanted the full price of the radio down as the deposit not the customary $50 or $100 down. I would like to by this radio but I don't want my Credit card billed until they ship this radio, I would also place more deposit moneys down but it seems like the big retailers are getting like Flex and Elecraft were the want at least half the money down or paid in full if you want to be low on there list when the actual purchase date could be months or a year away. I asked how many orders they have now and there reply was not so many, maybe two or three.
Acom 1000 & FTDX10
I was looking at the back of the Acom1000 now and saw that it ONLY uses the PTT/KEY to send it to TX.
From what I can see it has no CAT or ALC, only PTT.
So you don't need anything, just a cable connecting the PTT of the radio to the ftdx10 PIN TX GND + GND then to the TUNER connector.
The FT991 TUN/LIN use the pin 2-3 (2-TXGND 3-GND) same as TUNER on FTdx10
We take a look at one of the most recent HF transceivers to come onto the ham radio market. Could this be the new FT-101E that was one of the best sellers of the 1960s? Peter Waters G3OJV, takes a look and reports on his three weeks of using this radio.
