Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E) : "Emergency" Feature
Activating the "Emergency" feature from the front panel, you’ll place the VX-2 series on the 430 MHz "Home" channel frequency you’ve selected, an alarm beep will be emitted from the speaker (containing a CW "SOS" message, if you like), and the front panel’s Strobe LED will flash a brilliant white visual beacon.

Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): Ultra Compact, Ultra Rugged!
The VX-2 series unbelievably small, 1 Amp-hour Lithium-Ion battery pack powers a high-efficiency PA circuit to provide as much as 3 Watts (144 MHz) when using an external power source. This from a case even smaller than that of the VX-1R: 1.89" x 3.19" x 0.91" WHD (47 x 81 x 23 mm, w/o knob and antenna), weighing just 4.7 ounces (132 g, including antenna/FNB-82LI Battery). With its rugged die-cast aluminum chassis, the VX-2 series is built to last, and its big voice will get your transmission through!

Yaesu VX-2E: Up to 3 Watts of Power Output!
Despite its compact size, the VX-2 series provides 1.5 Watts of 144 MHz power output (430 MHz: 1 Watt) while using the internal FNB-85LI Lithium-Ion Battery pack. Connect the optional E-DC-21 DC Adapter Cable, and power output increases to 3 Watts on 144 MHz, and 2 Watts on 430 MHz! And while the "Low Power" setting may be used for short-range communications, you can just touch the [F] key to engage "High" power for one transmission!

Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): Wide-Band Receiver Coverage!
Besides 144- and 430-MHz transceive operation, the VX-2 series provides receive coverage of the AM (MF) and FM broadcast bands, HF Shortwave Bands, VHF and UHF TV bands, the VHF AM aircraft band, and a wide range of commercial and public safety frequencies, from 500 kHz up to 999 MHz are blocked.

Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): Special Memory Banks!
Special pre-programmed Memory Banks are loaded, at the factory, for monitoring of the Marine, Shortwave, and NOAA Weather Bands, for quick access to stations of interest. The Weather Band feature includes a "Severe Weather" alert that sounds an alarm when the 1050 Hz alert tone is transmitted by a NOAA weather broadcast station (U.S. version), ideal for emergency operations.

Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): CTCSS and DCS Systems Built In!
Both 50-tone CTCSS and 104-code Digital Code Squelch (DCS) Encode/Decode systems are built into every VX-2 series, for ease of repeater access or silent monitoring of busy channels. For systems requiring mixed CTCSS/DCS operation, a "Split Tone" mode is included, too. And if you don’t know the CTCSS or DCS information you need when operating from a new location. Tone Search and DCS Search functions are also provided!

Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): User-Friendly Front Panel!
Thanks to the large button size, ergonomic case design, and carefully-crafted operating firmware, the VX-2 series is incredibly simple to operate the first time you pick it up! And its keys and large LCD screen become illuminated whenever a key is pressed or the tuning dial is turned, for ease of nighttime use.

Yaesu VX-2E (VX2E, VX 2E): WiRES™ Internet Access Key and DTMF Autodialer
For ease of access to a local node station utilizing Vertex Standard’s WiRES™ Internet Linking system, the front panel "Internet" key generates the DTMF tone needed for system access. And 16-digit, 9-memory DTMF Auto-dialer for autopatch use, or Internet access via a

Yaesu Vx-2E: Scanning Modes for All Occasions!
The VX-2 series allows you to scan just the memory channels, the entire operating band, or a portion of that band. It will halt on signals encountered, so you can talk to the station(s) on that frequency, if you like. The VX-2 series display will automatically become illuminated when an active channel is found.

Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): 100 Programmable Band-Limit Memories!
To limit scanning within a user-defined sub-band range, or to prevent incursion into the SSB/CW portions of the bands, you may utilize the 50 pairs of Programmable Memory Scan memories to establish sub-band limits for tuning or scanning.

Yaesu VX-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): Preferential Scan List
Within the "regular" memories, you may designate certain memories in a "Preferential Scan List." If scanning is initiated while operating on one of the "preferred" channels, the scanning loop will only include those channels on the "preferred" list.

Yaesu Vx-2E(VX2E, VX 2E): Over 1300 Memory Channels
The VX-2 series incredible memory capacity includes 900 "regular" memories, 11 "Home" channels, 50 pairs of "Band Edge" memories, in addition to 100 channels which allow you to "skip" particular frequencies during band scanning. And each memory may have a sixcharacter Label appended, for quick channel identification.
