VX-3200 OPERATING MANUAL
INTRODUCTION
The VX-3200 Series are full-featured FM transceivers designed for flexible mobile
and base station business communications in the VHF or UHF Land Mobile bands.
These transceiver are designed for reliable business communications in a wide variety of applications with a wide range of operating capability provided by their leading-edge design.
The 128-channel memories can each be programmed with an 8-character channel
name.
Important channel frequency data is stored in EEPROM and flash memory on the
CPU, and is easily programmable by dealers using a personal computer and the VERTEX STANDARD VPL-1 Programming Cable and CE52 Software.
The pages which follow will detail the many advanced features provided on the VX3200 transceiver. After reading this manual, you may wish to consult with your Network Administrator regarding precise details of the configuration of this equipment
for use in your application
For North American Users Regarding 406 MHz Guard Band
The U.S. Coast Guard and National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration have requested the cooperation of the U.S. Federal Communications
Commission in preserving the integrity of the protected frequency range 406.0
to 406.1 MHz, which is reserved for use by distress beacons. Do not attempt
to program this apparatus, under any circumstances, for operation in the frequency range 406.0 - 406.1 MHz if the apparatus is to be used in or near
North America.

BASIC OPERATION OF THE TRANSCEIVER
Important! - Before turning on the radio the first time, confirm that the power connections have been made correctly and that a proper antenna is connected to the
antenna jack.
Switching Power ON/OFF
r Turn the VOL/PWR knob turn on the radio. The display will become illuminated.
r Press the [q ]/[p ] button to choose the desired operating channel. A channel
name will appear on the display. If you want to select an operating channel from
a different group, press the [s]/[r] button to select the group you want before
selecting the operating channel.
Setting the Volume
r Turn the VOL/PWR knob clockwise to increase the volume, and counterclockwise to decrease it.
Transmitting
r To transmit, monitor the channel and make sure it is clear.
THIS IS AN FCC REQUIRMENT!
r
r
r
r
r
Press the PF button which is programmed to the Monitor feature to listen for
channel activity.
When receiving a call, transmit only after the incoming call ends. The radio cannot receive a call and transmit simultaneously.
Press the PTT switch.
If the channel is clear, the BUSY/TX indicator will glow red. The radio is now
transmitting. While holding in the PTT switch, speak across the face of the microphone in a clear and normal voice. For best transmission, hold the microphone
about 1-1/2 to 2 inches away from your mouth. Release the PTT switch to receive.
If the Busy Channel Lockout feature has been programmed on a channel, the
radio will not transmit when a carrier is present. Instead, the radio will generate a
continuous low-pitched tone while the PTT switch is pressed. Release the PTT
switch and wait for the channel to be clear of activity.
If CTCSS or Digital Coded Squelch (DCS) Lockout has been programmed on a
channel, the radio can transmit only when there is no carrier being received or
when the carrier being received includes the correct CTCSS tone or DCS code.

BASIC OPERATION OF THE TRANSCEIVER
Automatic Time-Out Timer
If the selected channel has been programmed for automatic time-out, you must limit
the length of each transmission. While transmitting, a beep will sound 10 seconds
before time-out. Another beep will sound just before the deadline; the “
” indicator will disappear and transmission will cease soon thereafter. To resume transmitting, you must release the PTT switch and wait for the “penalty timer” to expire (if
you press the PTT switch before this timer expires, the timer restarts, and you will
have to wait another “penalty” period)

ADVANCED OPERATION
SCAN
The Scanning feature is used to monitor multiple channels programmed into the transceiver. While scanning, the transceiver will check each channel for the presence of a
signal, and will stop on a channel if a signal is present.
r Press the assigned PF button to activate scanning.
r The scanner will search the channels of each channel, looking for active ones; it
will pause each time it finds a channel on which someone is speaking.
r Press the assigned PF button again to disable scanning. Operation will revert to
the programmed revert channel.
Note: Your dealer may have programmed your radio to stay on one of the following
channels if you press the PTT switch during scanning pause:
¦ “Last Busy” Channel
¦ “Home” Channel
¦ “Scan Start” Channel
¦ Current channel (“Talk Back”)
¦ “Priority channel”
SCAN A/D (ADD/DELETE)
r Press the assigned PF button to delete the current channel from Scanning. Alternatively, press and hold the assigned PF button for 2 seconds to delete the current
channel from Scanning.
r When you delete a channel, the “PRG ” icon will disappear on the LCD. To
restore a particular channel to your scanning list, press and hold in the assigned
PF button again for 2 seconds; the “PRG ” icon will appear on the LCD.
DUAL WATCH
The Dual Watch feature is similar to the Scan feature, except that only two channels are monitored:
r The current operating channel; and
r The “Priority” channel.
To activate Dual Watch:
m Press the assigned PF button.
m The scanner will search the two channels; it will pause each time it finds a
channel on which someone is speaking.
To stop Dual Watch:
m Press the assigned PF button.

FOLLOW-ME DW
To set up a “Dual Watch” frequency pair using the “Follow-Me” feature, select a
channel using the assigned PF button (generally the [q]/[p] button). Now press the
assigned PF button; pressing the assigned PF button locks the current channel as the
User-assigned Priority Channel, and “ ” icon will appear on the LCD.
HOME
r Press the assigned PF button to recall the pre-programmed Home group/channel.
When you recall the Home group/channel, the “ ” icon will appear on the LCD.
r Press this button again to return to previous group/channel; the “ ” icon will
disappear on the LCD.
HOME SET
Press and hold the assigned PF button to store the current group/channel to the Home
register.
PHONE
Press the assigned PF button to dial the Dealer pre-programmed Auto-Dial telephone number. The DTMF tones sent during the dialing sequence will be heard in the
speaker.
TX LOW POWER
Press the assigned PF button to set the radio’s transmitter to the “Low Power” mode.
Press this button again to return to “High Power” operation when in difficult terrain.
TALK AROUND
Press the assigned PF button to activate the Talk Around feature when you are operating on duplex channel systems (separate receive and transmit frequencies, utilizing
a “repeater” station). The Talk Around feature allows you to bypass the repeater
station and talk directly to a station that is nearby. This feature has no effect when you
are operating on “Simplex” channels, where the receive and transmit frequencies are
already the same.
Note that your dealer may have made provision for “Talk Around” channels by programming “repeater” and “Talk Around” frequencies on two adjacent channels. If so,
the key may be used for one of the other Pre-Programmed Functions.

ADVANCED OPERATION
SHORT CUT #1 – SHORT CUT #4
Press the assigned PF button to recall the Dealer pre-programmed channel directly.
ARTS (Auto Range Transpond System)
This system is designed to inform you when you and another ARTS-equipped station
are within communication range.
During ARTS operation, your radio automatically transmits for about 1 second every
25 seconds (the interval is programmed by the Dealer) in an attempt to shake hands
with the other station.
If you move out of range for more than two minutes, your radio senses that no signal
has been received; a ringing beeper will sound, and “OUT OF SERVICE” will scroll
on the LCD. If you subsequently move back into range, as soon as the other station
transmits, your beeper will sound, and “IN SERVICE” will scroll on the LCD.
DTMF Paging System
(Requires the optional FVP-25 Encryption/DTMF Pager Unit)
This system allows paging and selective calling, using DTMF tone sequences.
When your radio is paged by a station bearing a tone sequence which matches yours,
your radio’s squelch will open and the alert ringer will sound. The three-digit code of
the station which paged you will be displayed on your radio’s LCD.
