Yaesu FT-DX3000 has been discontinued

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, John (VA1JG), who notes:

As per the following exchange on the Yaesu Facebook group, the FTDX3000 is the latest Yaesu HF model to be discontinued:

John Kruk is the national sales manager for Yaesu USA, so this is real news. This was posted on Tuesday.

Many thanks for the tip, John! I’ve noticed a number of retailers have listed it as discontinued. If memory serves, I believe this FT-DX3000 was first introduced at the 2012 Hamvention, so it has had a decent market run. No doubt, the new FT-DX10 will be Yaesu’s focus in this price bracket.

    I owned the 3000 since 2012 and in 2018 I sold it. Yes it did have greater conectability and gave the 590 a good run but if the ftdx10 is the replacement then that radio was head and shoulders above the 3K . Like the 3K I bought the 10 when it first came out so as they say the beat goes on and yaesu seems on the right track.

    I have an FTdx-3000. It is a great radio with excellent reception and features. It’ll soon become one of Yaesu’s classic radios. No matter how old, it will always deliver.
