Re: Low audio from FT-847

Hi Lee

        As a fellow FT-847 owner I have run into this also.
I have quite a few headphones here that range in a wide
variety of impedances. Some of my phones sound fine
in this jack while others are low and distorted. I can only
conclude that the headphone jack on the FT-847 is very
impedance sensitive.
      Page 20 of the manual says "This jack's impedance
is optimized for use with 16 to 32 ohm headphone types."
      I get around this by using the speaker output on the
rear of the radio into my DSP-9 and plug the phones into
that. I prefer the Timewave DSP for Sat work anyway. 73.
