The VFO 1000/Drake is a direct digital synthesizer programmed to enhance the operation of the Drake R4 series receivers.  There are 30 tunable memories that are programmed to provide the functions of VFO, MEMORIES, and GENERAL COVERAGE reception. The first 7 memories are factory assigned for the 160 meter to 10 meter ham bands. The remaining bands are assigned to provide general coverage of the shortwave bands. They can be easily user re-assigned in any way you wish up to 30MHz.  Some memories could be your favorite net frequencies, others could be used for general coverage of the shortwave broadcast bands.  The encoder has 5KHz, 1KHz, 100Hz, and 10Hz tuning steps, and a optional 1Hz step can replace the 1KHz step. The encoder can be locked to prevent accidental changes.  An  LED indicates when the encoder is active.  There is a 50KHz step available in the setup mode to speed-up  frequency entry.     The LCD is blue backlite with white characters.  No mods to the receiver are required.  Installation is by plugging the VFO 1000 output cable into one of the auxiliary crystal sockets on the back of the receiver.
