Public safety officers demand and require ruggedness, reliability, and versatility, and the Vertex Standard VX-800 excels in every respect. With its invertible Alphanumeric display, super-long-life battery, and unmatched versatility in programming flexibility, the VX-800 series is a public safety user's ideal communications partner.
VERSATILITY

200 CHANNEL CAPACITY (Yaesu VX-800, VX-800, VX 800, VX800)
The huge 200-channel capacity may be partitioned into as many as 10 Memory Groups, with no limit on the number of channels in each Group. A single radio may therefore be programmed with channels sets for a number or different jurisdictions or organizations.

2 PROGRAMMABLE SOFT KEYS + 1 MULTI-POSITION PROGRAMMABLE TOGGLE SWITCH (Yaesu VX-800, VX-800, VX 800, VX800)
Customization of feature access is easily accomplished at the time of programming. Flexibility in assignment of features ensures compatibility eith existing-system requirements.

CTCSS/DCS ENCODE + DECODE (Yaesu VX-800, VX-800, VX 800, VX800)
High-performance Encoder/Decoder circuits for both CTCSS and Digital Code Squelch are provided, for access to tone/code controlled systems. DCS is ideal for crowded RF environments, providing superior immunity from false opening of squelch.

PROGRAMMABLE/USER DEFINABLE SCAN MODES (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
Scanning of a single Memory Group or multiple Groups is provided, along with Priority Scan, Follow-Me Scan, and Follow-Me Dual Watch. The scan list may be locked in during programming, or the user may be allowed to edit the scan list.

PC PROGRAMMING (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
The channel and feature configurations are easily programmed in minutes by the dealer, using the optional CT-42A Programming Cable and CE31 Programming Software.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

5 WATTS POWER OUTPUT (selectable to 2.5, 1.0, 0.25 Watt) (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
The VX-800 is designed to produce up to five solid Watts of power output, for extended communications range. For more localized applications, the power output may be reduced to 2.5 Watts, 1 Watt, or 1/2 Watt, for enhanced battery life.

12,5/25 KHZ BANDWIDTH PROGRAMMABLE BY CHANNEL (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
When programming radios for use in different jurisdictions, the VX-800 portables may be set up, by channel, for use either in 12.5 kHz or 25 kHz enviroments, with deviation and bandwidth automatically set when this selection is made.


LONG LIFE LITHIUM-ION BATTERY (1600mAh) (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
The FNB-V62LI Lithium-Ion Battery Pack, holding 1600 mAh of capacity, is capable of providing up to 16 hours of operation (VX-800V, Battery Saver on), even when using 5 Watts of transmitter power (5-5-90 duty cycle). The FNB-V62LI is ideal for long public-safety or surveillance operations.

LOUD 500 mW AUDIO OUTPUT (Yaesu VX-800, VX-800, VX 800, VX800)
Ideal for reception in noisy enviroments, the VX-800's high-powered audio is coupled to a large internal speaker, assuring solid copy throughout difficult crowd control, fire, or sporting-event operations.

EASY USER INTERFACE

ADVANCED 8 CHARACTER INVERTIBLE ALPHANUMERIC DISPLAY (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
Providing indication of either the channel number or an Alphanumeric Channel Label of up to 8 characters, the LCD display also provides convenient operation function icons to provide instant recognition of radio status.

 

KEY LOCK (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
A soft key may be assigned as a "Key Lock" control, to prevent inadvertent frequency change or unwanted activation/deactivation of functions. This is especially valuable in surveillance operations, where the radio may be concealed and subject to accidental pressure on its keys.

ERGONOMIC CONSTRUCTION (Yaesu VX-800, VX-800, VX 800, VX800)
The carefully-engineered case construction features a gently rounded shape for a solid grip, whether the radio is wet or dry. Its over-sized front panel keys are easy to activate, even for users with large fingers.

RADIO TO RADIO CLONE FEATURE (Yaesu VX-800, VX-800, VX 800, VX800)
For quick programming of VX-800 radios for an emergency task force, the Clone feature allows copying of all channel and configuration data from one VX-800 to another, using the optional CT-72 Cloning Cable.

SECURITY

BCLO, BTLO AND TOT FUNCTIONS (Yaesu VX-800, VX-800, VX 800, VX800)
To facilitate efficient channel management, the VX-800 provides Busy Channel Lock-Out (BCLO) and Busy Tone Lock-Out (BTLO) features. What's more, the transmitter's Time-Out Timer (TOT) function prevents a "stuck microphone" condition from jamming a channel for an extended period of time.

EMERGENCY FUNCTIONS (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
The VX-800 may be programmed to transmit an emergency DTMF ANI burst, with or without a "live microphone" engaged, to alert the dispatcher to an emergency situation requiring assistance to the officer.

ENCRYPTION (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
The FVP-25 Encryption Unit provides security for your omportant public safety and private security communications, and it also includes a DTMF Paging function for selective calling.

EMBEDDED MESSAGE (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
At the time of programming, an I.D. number may be imbedded in the radio's memory, allowing identification of a stolen radio if its serial number or other external identification tags have been removed.

DURABLE CONSTRUCTION

MIL-STD 810 C/D/E (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
Built to meet or exceed the requirements of the U.S. MIL-STD 810 C/D/E standard, the VX-800 is designed to survive under difficult operating conditions of shock, vibration, and driving rain. Cost-performance begins with durability, and the MiL-Spec toughness of the VX-800 is your guarantee of its design quality.

DIE-CAST CHASSIS AND WEATHERPROOF CASE DESIGN (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
The VX-800's ruggedness begins with its one-piece die-cast aluminium chassis, which provides hihg strength and durability along with light weight. Surrounding the portable's circuitry is a one-piece high-impact case, sealed against water ingress by a robust O-ring.

WATER SHIELD MICROPHONE CONNECTION (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
The multi-pin accessory connector on the side of the VX-800, sealed for protection against weather, provides a convenient connection point for the MH-50A7A Speaker/Microphone ot other accessories. Its gold-plated contacts ensure many years of reliable service.

INTRINSICALLY SAFE VERSION AVAILABLE (Yaesu VX-800, VX 800, VX-800, VX800)
Included in the VX-800 Intrinsically Safe version's certification is approval for use in the hazardous Hydrogen and Acetylene enviroments. This difficult-to-obtain certification attests to the superior design and manufacture of the VX-800.
