AUTO-MODE, AUTO-STEP, HIGH-PERFORMANCE RECEIVER! (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
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!
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.
Broadcast Station Memory Bank
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!
MEMORY SYSTEM PROVIDES 2000 CHANNELS OF OPERATING VERSATILITY! (VR-5000,
VR5000, VR 5000)
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.
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!
Memory Display (PMR)
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
erasure of channel information
away from a memorized frequency in a pseudo-VFO mode.

ALL THE ACTION WITH THE VR-5000's EXTENSIVE SCANNING CAPABILITIES (VR-5000,
VR5000, 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"

incoming signal disappears; and "Hold" Scan, whereby scanning stops when
activity is encountered.There Is a wide array of scanning features available

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.
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 ).
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!
SPECTRUM SCOPE FOR VISUAL ACTIVITY VIEWING (VR-5000,
VR5000, VR 5000)
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.
BAND SEARCH (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
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.
SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR LEADING-EDGE SELECTIVITY (VR-5000, VR5000, VR 5000)
optional DSP-1 Digital Signal Processing Unit includes a number of features
which can significantly enhance reception through improved interference
Bandpass Filter (SSB/AM/FM Modes)
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.
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.
notches out annoying "beat" signals ("heterodynes") which can spoil reception,
especially when listening to the Shortware Broadcast bands.
