Introduction
The VX-150 is an ultra compact FM hand-held providing up to five watts of RF power and
a wealth of convenient features for the 2m amateur band. The VX-150 has rubber gasket
seals around all external controls and connectors to help keep out dust and rain or spray,
assuring years of reliable operation even in harsh environments.
Sixteen multi-function keys provide the ultimate in programmability, with 199 freely tunable memories and two VFOs. All memories store repeater shifts or separate tx/rx frequencies, CTCSS (Continuous Tone Controlled Squelch System) or DCS status. You also get
one instant-recall “Home” channel memory and ten special purpose memories for limited
subband tuning/scanning. Busy channel band or selective memory scanning is provided
along with priority channel monitoring; 1 MHz up/down stepping; ARS (automatic repeater shift) when tuned to repeater subbands; plus a top panel rotary dial for memory and
frequency selection. The keypad serves as a DTMF encoder during transmission, and up to
9 DTMF memories can store 16 digits each for quick playback of commonly used numbers.
The liquid crystal display shows seven frequency digits, memory selection, CTCSS tone
frequency, and includes a bargraph S/PO meter. Yaesu’s power saver system can be set by
the operator for optimum sampling/standby ratio, or can be turned off for packet operation.
And our new APO (Automatic Power Off) system shuts off the transceiver to avoid dead
batteries if you doze off or are called away unexpectedly.
Operation under difficult conditions is simplified by a lamp button illuminating the display
and backlit translucent keypad, diatonically assigned function-dependent keypad beeps.
Please read this manual carefully to gain a full understanding of the features of the VX150.

Basic Operation
BATTERY PACK INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL
To install the battery, hold the transceiver with your left hand, so your palm is over the
speaker and your thumb is on the top of the belt clip. Insert the battery pack into the battery
compartment on the back of the radio while tilting the Belt Clip outward, then close the
Battery Pack Latch until it locks in place with a “Click.” To remove the battery, turn the
radio off and remove any
protective cases. Open the
Battery Pack Latch on the
bottom of the radio, then
slide the battery downward
and out from the radio while
unfolding the Belt Clip.
Do not attempt to open any of the rechargeable Ni-Cd packs, as they could explode if
accidentally short-circuited.
If the battery has never been used, or its charge is depleted, it may be charged by connecting the NC-72A/B/C/F/U Battery Charger, as shown in the illustration, to the EXT DC
jack. If only 12 ~ 16 Volt DC power is available, the optional E-DC-5B (with its cigarette
lighter plug) or E-DC-6 DC Adapter may also be used for charging the battery.
The optional FNB-V57 high-capacity battery can not be charged using the NC-72; please
use the optional CD-16.

VX-150 OPERATING MANUAL
Basic Operation
ANTENNA INSTALLATION
The supplied antenna provides good results over the entire frequency range of the transceiver. However, for enhanced coverage in remote areas, an external mobile or base station
antenna may prove beneficial.
To install the supplied antenna
Hold the bottom end of the antenna, then screw it onto the mating connector on the transceiver until it is snug. Do not over-tighten by use of extreme force.
Notes:
m Never transmit without having an antenna connected.
m When installing the supplied antenna, never hold the upper part of the antenna while screwing it onto the mating
connector on the transceiver.
m Remember that a large base-station antenna will have
considerably more gain than the supplied rubber flex
antenna, and this added gain may degrade the ability of
the VX-150 to resist intermodulation-type interference. The installation of a suitable
144-148 MHz bandpass filter in the coaxial line to a base station will usually eliminate
such interference, if encountered.

Basic Operation
SWITCHING POWER ON AND OFF
 Be sure the battery pack is installed.
‚ Connect the antenna to the top panel ANTENNA
jack.
ƒ Switch on the transceiver by rotating the VOL control clockwise out of the click-stop (a momentary
beep will sound).
ADJUSTING THE VOLUME LEVEL
Rotate the VOL control (immediately to the right of the Antenna) to set the desired audio
level. Clockwise rotation increases the volume level.
SQUELCH SETUP
Set the SQL control fully counterclockwise, rotate the
VOL control out of the click-stop and adjust for a comfortable volume on the noise or received signal. The
BUSY/TX indicator LED should glow green. If a signal is present, rotate the DIAL selector on the top panel
to a channel where only noise is heard.
Adjust the SQL control just to the point where the noise is silenced and the LED is extinguished. If the SQL control is set further clockwise, sensitivity to weak signals will be
reduced. Now, whenever a signal reaches the receiver that is strong enough to open the
squelch, the indicator will glow green.
TRANSMITTING
When you wish to transmit, wait until the channel is clear (BUSY/TX lamp off), and squeeze
the PTT switch. During transmission the BUSY/TX indicator glows red, and relative transmitter power output is indicated graphically along the bottom of the display. Release the
PTT switch to receive.
If using a “B” version (in Europe), press the
T-CALL switch (just below the PTT switch)
to transmit a 1750 Hz tone to access repeaters that require it.

Advanced Operation
VFO SPLIT MODE
For working on repeaters with odd splits, or communicating with astronauts on orbiting
space vehicles, it may be necessary to use non-standard splits between the receive and
transmit frequency. If the application is infrequent enough not to warrant the dedication of
a memory channel for this purpose, the “VFO Split” mode may be used. Here is the procedure:
 Press the [VFO(PRI)] key, as needed, to select VFO-A. Set VFO-A for the receiving
frequency (for example, 144.950 MHz).
‚ Now press the [VFO(PRI)] key, and set VFO-B for the desired transmit frequency (e.g.
144.750 MHz).
ƒ Press the [VFO(DW)SC] key once more to re-establish VFO-A as the “Main” (receive) VFO.
„ Press the [F] key, then press the [0(SET)] key, to enter the Set mode.
… Rotate the DIAL to select Menu #5 (“V-SPLIT”).
† Press the [F ] key, then rotate the DIAL to set this function ON.
‡ Press the PTT key once to save the new setting and exit to normal operation.
ˆ You will now be operating in a Split mode. When you press the PTT key to transmit,

etc.), just press the [VFO(PRI )] key, then make the necessary change, then press
[VFO(PRI)] key once more to restore VFO-A to the “receive VFO” position.
Š When you have finished with Split operation, re-enter the Set mode, and set Menu #5 to
OFF.
A split frequency pair set up via the VFO Split feature cannot be stored directly into memory.
You can, however, store odd frequency pairs using a different (slightly simpler) procedure.
See page 18.
RECEIVE BATTERY SAVER S ETUP
An important feature of the VX-150 is its Receive Battery Saver, which “puts the radio to
sleep” for a time interval, periodically “waking it up” to check for activity. If somebody is
talking on the channel, the VX-150 will remain in the “active” mode, then resume its

CTCSS O PERATION
Many repeater systems require that a very-low-frequency audio tone be superimposed on
your FM carrier in order to activate the repeater. This helps prevent false activation of the
repeater by radar or spurious signals from other transmitters. This tone system, called
“CTCSS” (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System), is included in your VX-150, and is
very easy to activate.
CTCSS setup involves two actions: setting the Tone Frequency and then setting of the
Tone Mode. These actions are set up by using the [1(SQ TYP)] and [2(CODE)] keys, or
Menu Items #25 and #26.
 Press the [F] key, then immediately press the [1(SQ TYP)] key. This provides a “Shortcut” to Menu #25 (“SQL TYP”).
‚ Rotate the DIAL so that “T” appears on the display; this activates the CTCSS Encoder,
which allows repeater access.
ƒ You may notice an additional “DCS” icon appearing while you rotate the DIAL in this
step. We’ll discuss the Digital Code Squelch system shortly.
„ Rotation of the DIAL in step ‚ above will occasionally cause “SQ” to appear adjacent
to the “T” icon. When “T SQ” appears, this means that the Tone SQuelch system is
active, which mutes your VX-150’s receiver until it receives a call from another radio
sending out a matching CTCSS tone. This can help keep your radio quiet until a specific call is received, which may be helpful while operating in congested areas.
… When you have made your selection of the CTCSS tone mode, press the PTT key.
† Press the [F ] key, then immediately press the [2(CODE)] key. This provides a “Shortcut” to Menu #26 (“TN SET”).
‡ This Menu selection allows setting of the CTCSS tone frequency to be used.
ˆ Rotate the DIAL until the display indicates the Tone Frequency you need to be using
(ask the repeater owner/operator if you don’t know the tone frequency).
‰ Press the [F] key to save the new settings and exit to normal operation.

Advanced Operation
DCS OPERATION
Another form of tone access control is Digital Code Squelch, or DCS. It is a newer, more
advanced tone system which generally provides more immunity from false paging than
does CTCSS. The DCS Encoder/Decoder is built into your VX-150, and operation is very
similar to that just described for CTCSS. Your repeater system may be configured for
DCS; if not, it is frequently quite useful in Simplex operation if your friend(s) use transceivers equipped with this advanced feature.
Just as in CTCSS operation, DCS requires that you set the Tone Mode to DCS and that
you select a tone code.
 Press the [F] key, then immediately press the [1(SQ TYP)] key. This provides a “Shortcut” to Menu #25 (“SQL TYP”).
‚ Rotate the DIAL until “DCS” appears on the display; this activates the DCS Encoder/
Decoder.
ƒ When you have made your selection of the DCS mode, press the PTT key.
„ Press the [F] key, then immediately press the [2(CODE)] key. This provides a “Shortcut” to Menu #27 (“DCS SET”).
… Rotate the DIAL to select the desired DCS Code (a three-digit number). Ask the repeater owner/operator if you don’t know DCS Code; if you are working simplex, just
set up the DCS Code to be the same as that used by your friend(s).
† When you have made your selection, press the [F] key to save the new settings and exit
to normal operation.
Remember that the DCS is an Encode/Decode system, so your receiver will remain muted
until a matching DCS code is received on an incoming transmission. Switch the DCS off
when you’re just tuning around the band!

T ONE SEARCH S CANNING
In operating situations where you don’t know the CTCSS or DCS tone being used by
another station or stations, you can command the radio to listen to the incoming signal and
scan in search of the tone being used. Two things must be remembered in this regard:
m You must be sure that your repeater uses the same tone type (CTCSS vs. DCS).
m Some repeaters do not pass the CTCSS tone; you may have to listen to the station(s)
transmitting on the repeater uplink (input) frequency in order to allow Tone Search
Scanning to work.
To scan for the tone in use:
 Set the radio up for either CTCSS or DCS Decoder operation (see the previous discus-
sion). In the case of CTCSS, “T SQ” will appear on the display; in the case of DCS,
“DCS” will appear on the display.
Press
the [F] key, then immediately press the [2(CODE)] key to select the “TN SET”
‚
Menu item (when TONE SQL is selected) or “DCS SET” (during DCS operation).
ƒ Press the [F] key, then press and hold in the [s] or [t] key to start scanning for the
incoming CTCSS or DCS tone/code.
When
the radio detects the correct tone or code, it will halt on that tone/code, and audio
„
will be allowed to pass. Press the [F] key to lock in that tone/code.
… Press the [F] key, then press the PTT key to save the new settings and exit to normal
operation.
If the Tone Scan feature does not detect a tone or code, it will continue to scan indefinitely. When this happens, it may be that the other station is not sending any tone. You
can press the PTT switch to halt the scan at any time.
You also can press the MONI key during Tone Scanning to listen to the (muted) signal
from the other station. When you release the MONI key, Tone Scanning will resume
after about a second.
CTCSS/DCS BELL OPERATION
During CTCSS Decode or DCS operation, you may set the VX-150 up such that a ringing
“Bell” sound alerts you to the fact that a call is coming in. Here is the procedure for activating the Bell will ring in accordance with this programming.
 Set the transceiver up for CTCSS Decode (“TONE SQL”) or DCS operation, as described previously.
‚ Adjust the operating frequency to the desired channel.
ƒ Press the [F ] key, then press the [0(SET)] key to activate the Set mode.
„ Rotate the DIAL to select Menu Item #18 (“BELL”).
… Press the [F] key to enable adjustment of the Bell ringer.
† Rotate the DIAL to set the desired number of rings of the Bell. The available choices
are 1, 3, 5, or 8 rings, REPEAT (continuous ringing), or OFF.
‡ Press the PTT key momentarily to save the new setting and exit to normal operation.
When a station calls you whose transceiver is sending a CTCSS tone or DCS code which
matches that set into your Decoder, the Bell will ring in accordance to this programming.

VX-150 OPERATING MANUAL
Scanning
The VX-150 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.
Scanning operation is basically the same in each of the above modes. Before you begin,
take a moment to select the way in which you would like the scanner to resume scanning
after it halts on a signal.
Setting the Scan Resume Technique
Three options for the Scan-Resume mode are available:
5 SEC: In this mode, the scanner will halt on a signal it encounters, and will hold there for
5 seconds. If you do not take action to disable the scanner within that time period,
the scanner will resume even if the stations are still active.
BUSY: In this mode, the scanner will halt on a signal it encounters. Two seconds after the
carrier has dropped because the other station(s) ceased transmission, the scanner
will resume.
HOLD: In this mode, the scanner will halt on a signal it encounters. It will not restart
automatically; you must manually re-initiate scanning if you wish to resume.
To set the Scan-Resume mode
 Press the [F ] key, then press the [0(SET)] key, to enter the Set mode.
‚ Rotate the DIAL to select Menu #7 (“RESUME”).
ƒ Press the [F] key to enable changing of this Menu item.
„ Rotate the DIAL to select the desired scan-resume mode.
… When you have made your selection, press the PTT key to save the new setting and exit
to normal operation.
The default condition for this Menu Item is “5 SEC”.
VFO SCANNING
This mode allows you to scan the entire current operating band.
 Select the VFO mode by pressing the [VFO(PRI)] key, if necessary.
‚ Press and hold in the [s] or [t] key for 1/2 second to start scanning.
ƒ If and when the scanner encounters a signal strong enough to open the squelch, the
scanner will halt temporarily; the decimal point of the frequency display will blink
during this “Pause” condition.
„ The scanner will then resume according to the Scan Resume selected in the previous
section.
… To cancel scanning, press the PTT, [MR(SKIP)], or [VFO(PRI)] key.
If you want to change direction of the scan while it is underway, rotate the DIAL one
click in the opposite direction (in this case, one click counter-clockwise).
VX-150 OPERATING MANUAL
21
Scanning
MEMORY SCANNING
Memory scanning is similarly easy to initiate:
 Set the radio to the Memory mode by pressing the [MR(SKIP)] key, if necessary.
‚ Press and hold in the [s] / [t] key for 1/2 second to initiate scanning.
ƒ As with VFO scanning, the scanner will halt on any signal encountered that is strong
enough to open the squelch; it will then resume scanning according to the Scan-Resume mode set previously.
„ To cancel scanning, press the PTT, [MR(SKIP)], or [VFO(PRI )] key.
HOW TO SKIP (OMIT) A CHANNEL DURING MEMORY SCAN OPERATION
When you have some very active channels stored in memories, you may wish to skip them
when scanning, but still have them available for manual selection.
Such channels may be “Skipped” during scanning, if you like:
 Set the radio to the Memory Mode by pressing the [MR(SKIP)] key, if necessary.
‚ Rotate the DIAL to select the Memory Channel to be skipped during scanning.
ƒ Press the [F ] key momentarily (not for 1/2 second), then press the [MR(SKIP)] key
(momentarily). A small “SKIP” will appear to the LCD. indicating it is to be ignored
during scanning.
To re-institute the channel into the scanning loop, repeat the above three steps (the “Skipped”
channel will, of course, still be accessible via manual channel selection methods using the
DIAL in the MR mode).
PROGRAMMABLE (BAND LIMIT ) MEMORY SCAN (PMS)
This feature allows you to set sub-band limits for either scanning or manual VFO operation. For example, you might wish to set up a limit (in North America) of 144.300 MHz to
148.000 MHz so as to prevent encroachment into the SSB/CW “Weak Signal” portion of
the band below 144.300 MHz. Here’s how to do this:
 Set the radio to the VFO mode by pressing the [VFO(PRI)] key, if necessary.
‚ Using the techniques learned earlier, store (per the above example) 144.300 MHz into
Memory Channel #L1 (the “L” designates the Lower sub-band limit).
ƒ Likewise, store 148.000 MHz into Memory Channel #U1 (the “U” designates the Upper sub-band limit).
„ Switch to the Memory mode by pressing the [MR(SKIP)] key once, then rotate the
DIAL to select Memory Channel # L1.
Press
the [MR(SKIP)] key; the “MR” label will be blinking in the left-hand frequency
…
of the display.
† You may now rotate the DIAL, or begin scanning by pressing the [s] or [t] key for 1/2
second. The transceiver will behave as though it is in the standard VFO mode, but
operation will be restricted to the range between Memory Channels L1 and U1.
Note: Five pairs of Band Limit memories, labeled L1/U1 through L5/U5 are available.

SMART SEARCH OPERATION
The Smart Search feature allows you to load frequencies automatically according to where
activity is encountered by your radio. When Smart Search is engaged, the transceiver will
search above and below your current frequency, storing active frequencies as it goes (without stopping on them even momentarily); these frequencies are stored into a special Smart
Search memory bank, consisting of 31 memories (15 above the current frequency, 15 below the current frequency, plus the current frequency itself).
Two basic operating modes for Smart Search are available:
SINGLE:
In this mode, the transceiver will sweep the current band once in each direction starting on the current frequency. All channels where activity is present
will be loaded into the Smart Search memories; whether or not all 31 memories are filled, the search will stop after one sweep in each direction.
CONTINUE: In this mode, the transceiver will make one pass in each direction as with
One-Shot searching; if all 31 channels are not filled after the first sweep,
however, the radio will continue sweeping until they are all filled.

VX-150 OPERATING MANUAL
ARTS (Automatic Range Transponder System) Operation
The ARTS feature uses DCS signaling to inform both parties when you and another ARTSequipped station are within communications range. This may be particularly useful during
Search-and Rescue situations, where is important to stay in contact with other members of
your group.
If the other radio is in range, the beeper will sound (if
enabled) and the display will show “IN RNG” as opposed to the out of range display “OUT RNG” in which
ARTS operation begins.
If you move out of range for more than one minute
(four pollings), your radio will sense that no signal has
been received, three beeps will sound, and the display
will revert to “OUT RNG.” If you move back into range, your radio will again beep, and the
display will change back to the “IN RNG” indication.
You must terminate ARTS in order to resume normal operation. This is a safety feature
designed to prevent accidental loss of contact due to channel change, etc.
Here is how to activate ARTS:
BASIC ARTS SETUP AND OPERATION

on page 16.
‚ Press [F], then press the [7(P1)] key* to activate the ARTS operation.
ƒ Press the [F] key. You will observe the “OUT RNG” display on the LCD. ARTS operation has now commenced.
„ Every 15 seconds, your radio will transmit a “polling” call to the other station. When
that
station responds with its own ARTS polling signal, the display will change to “IN RNG” to
confirm that the other station “polling” code was received in response to yours.
… Press the [F] key again to exit ARTS operation and resume normal functioning of the
transceiver.
*The “default” function of the [7(P1)] is “ARTS.”

ARTS (Automatic Range Transponder System) Operation
ARTS POLLING TIME OPTIONS
The ARTS feature may be programmed to poll every 15 seconds (default value) or 25
seconds. The default value provides maximum battery conservation, because the polling
signal is sent out less frequently. To change the polling interval:
 Press the [F] key, then press the [0(SET)] key, to enter the Set mode.
‚ Rotate the DIAL to select Menu #15 (“AR ITVL”).
ƒ Press the [F ] key to enable changing of this Menu item.
„ Rotate the DIAL to select the desired polling interval (15 or 25 seconds).
… When you have made your selection, press the PTT key to save the new setting and exit
to normal operation.
ARTS ALERT BEEP OPTIONS
The ARTS feature allows two kinds of alert beeps (with the additional option of turning
them off), so as to alert you to the current status of ARTS operation. Depending on your
location and the potential annoyance associated with frequent beeps, you may choose the
Beep mode which best suits your needs. The choices are:
IN RANGE: The beeps are issued only when the radio first confirms that you are within
range, but does not re-confirm with beeps thereafter.
ALWAYS: Every time a polling transmission is received from the other station, the alert
beeps will be heard.
ARB OFF: No alert beeps will be heard; you must look at the display to confirm current
ARTS status.
To set the ARTS Beep mode, use the following procedure:
 Press the [F] key, then press the [0(SET)] key, to enter the Set mode.
‚ Rotate the DIAL to select Menu #14 (“ARTS BP”).
ƒ Press the [F ] key to enable changing of this Menu item.
„ Rotate the DIAL to select the desired ARTS Beep mode (see above).
… When you have made your selection, press the PTT key to save the new setting and exit
to normal operation.
CW IDENTIFIER SETUP
The ARTS feature includes a CW identifier. Every ten minutes during ARTS operation, the
radio can be instructed to send “DE (your callsign) K” if this feature is enabled. The
callsign field may contain up to 16 characters.
Here’s how to program the CW Identifier:
 Press the [F] key, then press the [0(SET)] key, to enter the Set mode.
‚ Rotate the DIAL to select Menu #29 (“CW ID”).
ƒ Press the [F ] key to enable changing of this Menu item.

Interface of Packet TNCs & Reset
The VX-150 may be used for Packet operation, using the optional CT-44 microphone
adapter (available from your Yaesu dealer) for easy interconnection to commonly-available connectors wired to your TNC. You may also build your own cable using a fourconductor miniature phone plug, per the diagram below.
The audio level from the receiver to
the TNC may be adjusted by using the
VOL knob, as with voice operation.
The input level to the VX-150 from the
TNC should be adjusted at the TNC
side; the optimum input voltage is approximately 5 mV at 2 k-Ohms.
Be sure to turn the transceiver and TNC
off before connecting the cables, so as
to prevent voltage spikes from possibly damaging your transceiver. Also,
be certain to turn off the Receiver Battery Saver, if activated (see page 10).
MICROPROCESSOR R ESETTING
In the event that erratic, unpredictable transceiver operation is encountered, it is possible
that the microprocessor has sustained a static burst or other condition that has caused
corruption of some of its data. If this should happen, resetting of the microprocessor should
clear up the problem. Here is the procedure for resetting the microprocessor (this will
restore all factory defaults, and will erase all memories):
 Turn the radio off.
‚ Press and hold the PTT and LAMP key while turning the radio on.
ƒ Rotate the DIAL to select “ALL.RST” on the LCD.
„ Press the [F ] key momentarily to initialize the radio.
SET M ODE RESETTING
This “Reset” procedure restores the Menu (“Set mode”) settins to their factory defaults,
without affecting your regular memories.
 Turn the radio off.
‚ Press and hold the PTT and LAMP key while turning the radio on.
ƒ Rotate the DIAL to select “SET.RST” on the LCD.
„ Press the [F ] key momentarily to initialize the Set mode.

VX-150 OPERATING MANUAL
Cloning
The VX-150 includes a convenient “Clone” feature, which allows the memory and configuration data from one transceiver to be transferred to another VX-150. This can be
particularly useful when configuring a number of transceivers for a public service operation. Here is the procedure for Cloning one radio’s data to another:
 Turn both radios off.
‚ Connect the optional CT-27 cloning cable between the MIC/SP jacks of the two radios.
ƒ Press and hold the PTT and LAMP key while turning the radio on.
„ Rotate the DIAL to select “CLONE.”
… Press the [F ] key, to enter the CLONE mode. “CLONE” will appear on the displays of
both radios when the Clone mode is successfully activated in this step.
† On the Destination radio, press the MONI key (“SAVING” will appear on the LCD).
‡ Press the PTT key on the Source radio; “SENDING” will appear on the Source radio,
and the data is transferred.
ˆ If there is a problem during the cloning process, “C-ERROR” will be displayed. Check
your cable connections and battery voltage, and try again.
‰ If the data transfer is successful, the Destination radio will return to normal operation;
Turn both radios off and disconnect the CT-27. You can then turn the radios back on,
and begin normal operation.
