The world has never seen a dual-band amateur hand-held transceiver which provides such an incredible small size combined with ultra-wide frequency coverage until now...

Sporting dimensions of 81H x 47W x 25D mm (3.2" x 1.9" x 1"), weighing just over 4 ounces. The Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) provides superb local communications at a power level of 500 mW or 1 Watt, while including impressive memory and scanning capabilities in addition to wideband receive capability which includes VHF and UHF TV audio, AM broadcast, FM broadcast, AM aircraft band, and public safety channels. The world of Dual Band performance has just got smaller...much smaller.

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) UP TO 1 WATT PO!
Power output of 500 mW with the standard battery, and up to 1 Watt with external DC power!

The Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) 's power amplifiers are new technology MOSFET devices which allow for high power output while using low input voltage. When using the standard 3.6 volt lithium ion battery, the VX-1R transmits at 500 mW. When the optional E-DC-15 cable is attached, the power output is increased to 1 Watt. And for short duration operation the optional FBA-20 alkaline battery adapter allows for a power output of 100 mW using a single "AA" alkaline cell.

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) 10+ HOURS OF OPERATION!
11 Hours of. Use the Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) for more than eleven hours on a single battery charge

The high capacity (700 mAh) lithium ion battery yields operating times in excess of 11 hours per charge. What's more, the NC-66/C/U Charger/AC Adapter provides re-charge time of two hours or less, so you can be back on the air quickly. And if your battery is already charged, you can receive using the NC-66B/C/U and conserve the charge.

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) WIDE BAND RECEIVE!
The Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) provides continuous receive coverage from 76 MHz to 999 MHz!

Besides being a full-featured Dual-Band amateur transceiver, the Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) provides extraordinary wide frequency coverage which includes AM BC, FM BC, public safety, and audio from most TV channels. The operating mode (AM, FM-Narrow, FM-Wide) is automatically preset on each band (with easy mode change via Menu), and you'll marvel at the great audio of the FM broadcast band!

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) LITHIUM-ION BATTERY!
vx1r_battery.jpg (13747 bytes)High capacity Lithium-Ion Battery provides long life without charging "memory" problems!

The supplied FNB-52LI Lithium Ion battery is a breakthrough in DC power technology in the amateur radio industry. While occupying the same space as a standard "AA" alkaline cell, the FNB-52LI provides 3.6 Volts at an incredible 700 mAh of current capacity! This voltage is approximately the same as that provided by three "AA" size Ni-Cd cells and allows theYaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) to transmit at a full 500 mW. Longer battery life and immunity from charge capacity memory is yours with the Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R)!

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) BATTERY CONSERVATION!
Extensive battery-saving features promote long operating times!

The Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R)'s microprocessor includes several important battery-saving features which may be enabled by the operator. These include:

  • Receive Battery Saver which puts the transceiver into "sleep" mode, checking the receive frequency periodically (0.2/0.3/0.5/1/2 seconds) for activity.
  • Automatic Power Off (APO) feature, which will turn the Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) off after a programmable interval of non-use (0.5/1/3/5/8 hours).
  • TX/Busy lamp off feature allows the operator to disable the TX/Busy LED, thus conserving battery life. The VX-1R's LCD includes a convenient low battery warning indicator, which alerts the operator of a low battery condition.
Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) DUAL WATCH!
Dual Watch enables you to check sub-band activity while receiving on another frequency!

The Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R)'s Dual Watch feature lets you monitor a main operating frequency while periodically checking a second frequency for activity. If a station appears on the "Dual Watch" frequency the transceiver will lock onto that frequency so that you can respond to the calling station.

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) 291 MEMORY CHANNELS!
vx1r_memory.jpg (12181 bytes)The Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R)'s extensive memory system provides as many as 291 memory channels with 6-digit alpha-numeric label capacity!

Included in the Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R)'s memory system are two main channel groups with different levels of capability, depending on your operating needs. Group 1 (52 channels) can store simplex or semi-duplex frequencies ("odd splits"), CTCSS/DCS tone mode and frequency, power output level, and alpha-numeric labels. Group 2 (142 channels) stores frequency plus standard repeater offsets, CTCSS/DCS tone mode, power output level, and alpha-numeric labels. Additionally, 31 Smart Search memory channels, ten pairs of band-limit memories and ten dedicated AM broadcast memories bring the total memory capability to 291 channels (including 31 Smart Search memories).

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) EMERGENCY FEATURE
vx1r_emergency.jpg (12166 bytes)One touch Emergency button can be used for quick access to your home channel!

The emergency button automatically changes thYaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R)'s operating frequency to your selected home channel, increases the Volume to a very high level, and causes the transceiver to emit a loud "Alarm" beeping tone. Press the PTT switch, and this alarm sound will be transmitted on the UHF Home channel, alerting family or friends to an emergency condition.

Yaesu VX-1R (VX1R, VX 1R) AUTOMATIC RANGE FINDER!
 

The Automatic Range Transponder System (ARTS) provides one-touch "in-range" confirmation!

The ARTS system provides an audible confirmation of your communication range. When activated, the ARTS system sends out a periodic transponder tone (including DCS code) so that you and one other ARTS equipped station will always know that you are within simplex communication range. The ARTS system will also send a CW identification of you call sign if desired.
