ULTRA-CONVENIENT AUTO-MODE, AUTO-STEP, HIGH-PERFORMANCE RECEIVER! (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
Despite its incredibly compact size, the Yaesu VR-5000 provides coverage from 100 kHz to 2599.99998 MHz on all popular operating modes: LSB, USB, CW,AM-Narrow, AM, Wide AM, FM-Narrow, and Wide FM. Making operation simple and efficient is the "Auto" mode, whereby the tuning steps and operating mode are automatically programmed according to the frequency you have selected. You won't miss those quick, important transmissions with the Yaesu VR-5000! 

•Dual Receive
When monitoring on the "main" displayed frequency, you can simultaneously listen to a second station operating within 20 MHz of the main frequency in the AM and FM-Narrow modes. This can be especially helpful while monitoring public safety communications.

•Preset Shortwave Broadcast Station Memory Bank
Featuring a handy world map showing the station's location, the special Shortwave Broadcast Station Memory Bank includes several different frequencies from a number of popular shortwave stations, including Voice of America, BBC, Radio Japan, Voice of Russia, etc. The operating frequencies may be changed by the owner, to keep up with changing station schedules! 


POWERFUL MEMORY SYSTEM PROVIDES 2000 CHANNELS OF OPERATING VERSATILITY! (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
The incredible 200-channel memory capacity of the Yaesu VR-5000 allows an astounding array of operating possibilities! The memories may be arranged in up to 100 Memory Groups, and you can attach an alpha-numeric label to both Memory Channels and Memory Groups to aid in channel identification. The memories store operating frequency, noise blanker status, and DSP information separately, so each channel is optimized for best reception. The Yaesu VR-5000 provides a number of other special features. 
 
•PS (PreSet) Memories
Five special PreSet memories provide one-touch access to favorite channels, such as local AM broadcast stations. Just press the large PS key on the front panel to step through the PreSet channels! 

•Graphical Memory Display (PMR)
For monitoring activity patterns on up to 50 channels, use the Programmable Memory Readout display mode. Similar to the RC Graphical Display mode, the PMR Display mode will show active channels as a black square on the display's memory matrix, allowing you to gauge activity levels while investigating possible operating frequencies.

  • Memory Over-write Protection Mode

  • Prevents accidental erasure of channel information
  • Memory Offset Tuning 

  • Allows tuning away from a memorized frequency in a pseudo-VFO mode.
  • Memory-Skip during Scanning

  • Prevents annoying lock-up of scanning on Weather-alert and other broadcast stations. 
  • Memory Sort Mode

  • Sort according to channel name, ascending/ descending frequency, or operating mode. 

CATCH ALL THE ACTION WITH THE VR-5000's EXTENSIVE SCANNING CAPABILITIES (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
The Yaesu VR-5000* s versatile scanning system allows lightning-fast scanning of operating frequencies, so you won't miss any of the excitement on the bands! The scanner allows you to select from three scan-resume options, too: "Delay" Scan, which Icjits scanning resume after a programmed interval Of aiting:on:annn active channel; "Pause" Scan, which holds on an active channel until the incoming signal disappears; and "Hold" Scan, whereby scanning stops when activity is encountered.There Is a wide array of scanning features available to the Yaesu VR-5000 user: 

•VFO Scan
Sweeps the entire frequency range of the receiver (0.1 ~ 2599.99998 MHz)

•Memory Scan
Choose from scanning of all memory channels, or channels within a particular memory group.

•PMS (Programmable Memory Scan) 
Scan within user-defined band limits, as though you were on a VFO. As many as 100 band-limit memories may be utilized for the setting of scanning borders. 

•Smart Search™
Automatically loads up to 100 channels where activity is found.

•Main-Sub Two-Channel Scanning 
Allows watching of the Main and Sub VFO frequencies without listening to them simultaneously.

•Priority Operation 
Allows operation on one channel while periodically watching a "Priority" channel for activity. Operation will shift to the Priority channel if it becomes active. 

 

WORLD CLOCK WITH UTC/LOCAL SETTINGS AND PROGRAMMABLE TIMER (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
The World Clock will show you local time anywhere in the world, and you can label the cities in each time zone according to your individual requirements. 

•Program Timer
Don't miss important broadcasts while you' re busy monitoring other frequencies! With the Program Timer feature, the Yaesu VR-5000 will automatically switch to a designated frequency at a programmed time, ensuring that you don't miss an important broadcast. 

•Alarm Timer
The Yaesu VR-5000 also includes a handy Alarm Clock feature, which will wake you up via a broadcast ( Radio Alarm ) or a beeping tone( Beep Alarm ).

•Sleep Timer 
Go to sleep listening to your favorite program! The Yaesu VR- 5000 can be set to shut off after 30/60/90/120 minutes. It's a great way to begin a great night's sleep! 


REAL-TIME SPECTRUM SCOPE FOR VISUAL ACTIVITY VIEWING (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
To aid in finding band activity, the Yaesu VR-5000's Real-Time Band Scope used while operating in the "VFO" mode, Will sweep the band in search of activity, displaying the received signals graphically according to frequency and signal strength. The sweep width can be set to 1/2/2.5/5 or 10 MHz.
The sweep rate can be set to 100/200/250/300 or 500 kHz, and you can adjust the channel steps for best resolution of the frequency range in use. 


NEW RADIO-CONTROL BAND SEARCH (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
For checking activity on popular radio-control frequencies, a special graphical display feature is available for the U.S., British, and Japanese RC frequency banks. This feature is ideal for monitoring activity during races, and you have a selection of Surface," "Aircraft," and "27 MHz" frequency graphs. 


DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR LEADING-EDGE SELECTIVITY (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
The optional DSP-1 Digital Signal Processing Unit includes a number of features which can significantly enhance reception through improved interference rejection

•Digital Bandpass Filter (SSB/AM/FM Modes) 
Provides razor-sharp selectivity for reducing adjacent- frequency interference and for shaping of the incoming stations audio frequency response. Both the low- cut and high-cut frequencies of the DSP Bandpass Filter are adjustable. 

•Digital Noise Reduction Filter 
The DSP will analyze the incoming passband and suppress noise which is not directly associated with the incoming signal, providing quieter reception.

•Digital Notch Filter
Automatically notches out annoying "beat" signals ("heterodynes") which can spoil reception, especially when listening to the Shortware Broadcast bands. 

•CW Narrow-Bandwidth Peaking Filter 
Provides ultra-narrow bandwidths of 25/1(BO/200/ \ 400 Hz for single-signal reception. 

•CW Tone Pitch Control
Allows you to adjust the center frequency of the CW filter for most comfortable reception
