The Yaesu VX-7R is a triple-band (6M, 2M & 440 MHz) HT with extensive receive coverage, and leading-edge features. The American version even transceivers with 300 mW on the 220 band. Power output on 6 meters, 2 meters and 440 MHz is 5/2.5/1/0.5 watts. It receives the AM and FM broadcast bands, shortwave (AM), VHF and UHF TV audio, VHF Air and public service frequencies. This new model features a rugged magnesium case with rubber bumpers and gaskets. It clearly sets the standard in ruggedness, versatility and water resistance. It is actually submersible (3 feet for 30 minutes). There is even an optional submersible speaker mic. The Yaesu display at the Dayton Hamvention featured the VX-7R submerged over 1 meter and powered for over 8 hours!
Other features include: magnesium case, 24 hour clock, 900 memories, changeable icons, severe weather alert, and multicolor LED strobe. The VX-7R also has an Internet key to access the new WIRES™ system.
At only 2.5 x 4 x 1.2 inches it will go with you everywhere. Hikers and mountain climbers may connect the optional SU-1 Barometric Sensor for direct air pressure readings. The VX-7R comes with SMA Dual Section Antenna, FNB-80LI Lithium Ion Battery, NC-72B or PA-48B Battery Charger, Belt Clip and Wrist Strap. Please note that the VX-7RS was silverand the VX-7RB was black.
THE WORLD’S FIRST SUBMERSIBLE AMATEUR HAND-HELD
Protected against water ingress by a wide array of rubber gaskets and other weatherproofing techniques, the VX-7R is rated for 30 minutes of submersion at a depth of 3 feet (JIS-7), plus a tough magnesium body with rubber bumper pads, making it ideal for outdoor use. Plus you get Dual Receive, 50/144/430 MHz operation plus wide-band receive coverage, a full color status indicator Strobe, and an “Internet” key for quick access to the exciting new WIRES™ repeater-internet linking system.
The VX-7R case, keypad, speaker, and connectorts are carefully sealed to protect the internal circuitry against water damage. And the optional CMP460A Speaker/Microphone, like the transceiver itself, is rated for 30 minutes of submersion at a depth of up to three feet.
The VX-7R is available in both Silver (VX-7R) and Black (VX-7RB) versions.
50/144/430 MHz: 5 Watts of Power
Utilizing a reliable FET power amplifier circuit, the VX-7R provides a full 5 Watts of power output on the 50, 144, and 430 MHz Amateur bands, with bonus coverage of the 222 MHz band at 300 mW (USA version only). And for 6-meter AM enthusiasts, you also get 1 Watt of carrier power on the 50 MHz band. Four power levels may be selected, each offering its own degree of battery conservation.
The VX-7R is capable of four modes of Dual Receive, including simultaneous reception of (1) two VHF frequencies; (2) two UHF frequencies; one VHF and one UHF frequency; or one “general coverage” frequency and one “Ham” frequency.
And you can set up the VX-7R to reduce the audio level on the “Sub” band, if you like, when a call is received on the “Main” band.
