Lo-D FT-30
33,000yen(1979 release)

The FM/AM tuner of A4 size which the improvement in an operationality also planned while improving the basic performance.

Low noise FET (field-effect transistor) excellent in the cross modulation property is adopted as FM front end part, PLL IC is adopted as FM multi-circuitry, and three good two-element ceramics filters and quadrature detection customer specific ICs of a phase response are adopted as the FM IF section.

The tri-state tuning indicator by three light emitting diodes is carried, and a tuning point can be checked easily just.

The loop antenna is carried only in AM.

The mode/muting switch which summarized the mode switching and the muting functionality to one are carried.

The 9kHz traps coil which eliminates the beat interference by the adjoining office at the time of AM reception is carried.
