(J Guide the pack into the slots with a slight inward
pressure, then slide the battery pack upward,
until it locks in place with a “Click.”
J To remove the battery, turn the radio off and
remove any protective cases. Press in the Bat-
tery Release button (behind the Antenna jack)
while sliding the battery down %”. Then lift the
battery away.
Do not attempt to open any of the re-
chargeable Ni-Cd packs, as they could
explode if accidentally short-circuited.
Low Battery Indication
(J As the battery discharges during use, the voltage
gradually becomes lower. when the battery volt-
age reaches 6.0 Volts, substitute a freshly
charged battery and recharge the depleted pack.
The “41” icon will blink in the display when the
battery voltage is low.
(J Avoid recharging Ni-Cd batteries often with little
use between charges, as this can degrade the
charge capacity. We recommend that you carry
an extra, fully-charged pack with you so the op-
erational battery may be used until depletion (this
“deep cycling” technique promotes better long-
term battery capacity).

Important Note !
Q The PTT should be pressed inward and in a slightly downward direction for proper operation. Do not press the PTT
switch in an upward direction, as this cause unreliable closure of the PTT switch, and it may damage the rubber boot.
O If the maximum acceptable temperature specification for the VX-10 is exceeded, due to prolonged exposure to
sunlight in a car window, for example, the transceiver will act to prevent itself from further over-heating by auto-
matically placing itself in the “LOW” power mode; even if the “HIGH” power mode has been selected by the user.
This safety feature may be engaged at temperatures exceeding 70 °C inside the transceiver's case.
If your radio has become very hot, and suddenly switches to the “LOW” power mode, allow it to cool off. The radio

Advanced Operation
Advanced Operation
The VX-10 transceiver includes many high-per-
formance operating features which may be enabled
by the Dealer and/or the user, depending on one’s
application. These may include:
O Pre-Programmed Functions - activated by
one of the “soft keys” ([A] and [B] on the 2-key
version, [A] ~ [D] on the 16-key version;
O “Set Function Mode” - Menu selections
which allow customization of the radio’s fea-
tures;
® “ARTS” (Auto Range Transpond System) -
which “shakes hands” with another ARTS-
equipped station to confirm that you are within
communication range—highly useful in
search-and-rescue operations; and
@ DTMF Paging - using DTMF tones for paging
and selective calling.
A comprehensive discussion of these advanced
features follows.
O Dealer-Programmed Functions
One or more of the following functions may have
been activated by your Dealer at the time of chan-
nel programming. These functions will have been
assigned to the [A] and [B] keys in the two-channel
transceiver version, orthe [A]. [B], [C], and [D] keys
in the sixteen-key version. The Channel Selector
Knob (hereafter referred to as “The Knob”) may
also have been designated for Dealer-Pro-
grammed Function use (usually for Set Mode
“Menu” use).
e Channel Group Selection
The VX-10 is capable of separating its 40 memory
channels (102 channels with 16-key pad) into any
of nine Groups. There is no limit as to the number
of channels which may be assigned to each
Group. The Dealer will have made the Group
assignment at the time of channel programming.
At the same time, one of the “Soft Keys” will be
assigned as the “Channel Group Selection” key.
To change Channel Groups, press the assigned
button (A, B, C, or D, or the Knob) to toggle
between the available Groups (scanning must be
off). Once the desired Group is reached, rotate the
Knob to select the desired channel within the
selected Group (the Group # will be shown as a
small digit to the right of the Channel label).
You may wish to have the Scanner (see next
section) pass through more than one Group dur-
ing the scanning process (normally, scanning is
performed within the current group only). To in-
clude the current Group in the scanning loop,
press and hold in the Channel Group Selection
key for one second; you will observe that the
Channel Group number is now underlined. The
underline means that this Group will be scanned
when the “Group Scan” feature is activated.
To remove a Group from Group Scan, press and
hold in the Channel Group Selection key again for
one second, until the underline disappears from
underneath the Channel Group number at the
right hand side of the LCD.
Multi-Group Scanning is only possible if you are
using the “User Scan” list.
Scanning
The Scanning feature rapidly steps through each
of your assigned channels, looking for incoming
calls. If a call is detected, the Scanner stops on
that channel, then resumes a few seconds after
the incoming transmission ends.
To start scanning, press the assigned “Scan”
key (A, B, C, D, or the Knob). The “SCAN” display
will be observed. When the scanner encounters
Advanced Operation
To start Dual Watch, press the Dealer-assigned
Dual Watch key (A, B, C, or D, or the Knob)
momentarily. The [DW] icon will come on. About
every 1 ¥2 seconds, the receiver will briefly check
the Priority Channel, looking for an incoming call.
When a signal is received on the Priority Channel,
Dual Watch will pause and the channel number or
name tag for the Priority Channel will be dis-
played. Dual Watch will resume after the station(s)
using the Priority Channel stop transmitting.
To cancel Dual Watch operation, press the Dual
Watch key again momentarily.
LOW Transmit Power
Pressing the appropriate Dealer-assigned key (A,
B, C, or D, or the Knob) switches the radio's
transmitter to the “Low Power” mode, thus extend-
ing battery life. The “Low Power” icon on the LCD
will be displayed. Press the “Low Power” key
again to return to high power operation when in
difficult terrain (see “Understanding Radio Waves”
later in this manual).
If the Dealer has pre-programmed certain chan-
nels into the “Low Power” mode, the Low Power
icon will appear automatically when you select
those channels.
Talk Around
In duplex channel systems (separate receive and
transmit frequencies, utilizing a “repeater” sta-
tion), Talk-Around allows you to bypass the re-
an active channel, the scanner will pause, the
current channel's # or its Nametag will be dis-
played, and the Group # digit on the right-hand
side of the display will blink. To stop Scanning,
press the Scan button again while you are
“paused” on an active channel (the blinking chan-
nel number will stop blinking) or during the scan-
ning process itself.
To start Group Scanning, you must press the
Scan key twice with no signal present. If the radio
has already “paused” on a busy channel between
the first and second keystrokes, the second press
of the Scan key will turn off the Scanner. In ex-
tremely busy traffic areas, you may actually have
to grasp the antenna for a moment (to reduce its
effectiveness) while pressing the designated
Scan key (quickly) twice in succession. To stop
Group Scanning, press the Scan button again
while you are “paused” on an active channel.
Dual Watch
Dual Watch automatically checks for activity on a
Dealer-assigned Priority Channel while you are
operating on another channel. The Priority Chan-
nel will always be the firstchannel of the currently-
selected Group.
Before initiating Dual Watch operation, be sure to
select the channel group within which you want to
poll the Priority Channel.
peater station and talk directly to a station that is
nearby. This feature has no effect when you are
operating on “simplex” channels, where the re-
ceive and transmit frequencies are the same.
To activate Talk-Around, press the Dealer-as-
signed key (A, B, C, or D, or the Knob). The
icon will come on. To return to normal repeater
operation, press the Talk-Around key once more.
Page Call (16-Key Version Only)
This feature, if enabled, allows the user to change
the 3-digit Page Call code, used to call other
similarly-equipped stations.
Press the Dealer-assigned key (A, B, C, or D, or
the Knob), followed by the three digits repre-
senting the Page Call code of the station you wish
to call. Three tones will be heard after the last key
is pressed (the new code will now be transmitted).
The receiver squelch of the other station will be
opened, and you can begin communication.
TX SAVE Off
This feature, when activated, disables the Trans-
mit Battery Saver, a default mode for the radio
which extends battery life by reducing transmit
power when a very strong signal from an appar-
ently nearby station is being received. Under
some circumstances, though, your hand-held ra-
dio may not be heard well at the other end of the
communication path, and high power may be nec-
essary at all times.

e Set Mode (Menu) |
The Menu mode is normally only made available
via a press of the Knob, as Menu selections re-
quire rotation of the (same) Knob. See the next
section for details of the “Set Function” (Menu)
mode of operation.
O Set Function (Menu Mode)
Your Dealer may have enabled the “Set Function”
(Menu) mode on your radio. This feature, when
activated, allows the user to customize certain per-
formance aspects of the VX-10. Note that some of
these items may also appear as available Soft
Keys, described previously.
The operating procedure for the Menu mode is
quite simple, requiring only a few easily- remem-
bered actions on your part.

eo S01 SQL (squelch Level)
After pressing the [A] key (see previous page),
rotate the Knob to find the point where the back-
ground noise is just silenced. This is the point of
best receiver sensitivity consistent with quiet
monitoring. The scale for the Squelch Level ad-
justment is 1 - 12, and the default value is 5.
e S02 LIST (Scanning List)
Two “Scanning Lists” may have been enabled by
your Dealer at the time of programming. The
“Dealer” Scan List is a fixed group of stations
which will be included when scanning is activated.
The “User” Scan List is a different list, initially
arranged by the Dealer, which may be modified by
the User (if, for example, you want to delete one
or more of these channels from the scanning list).
To edit the User Scan List, manually select the
channel you want to delete (for example) from
scanning by rotating the Knob; you will notice
“SCN” in the upper left-hand corner of the LCD.
After selecting Menu item S02 and pressing the
[A] key, rotate the Knob to select “L I57 L5H” on
the LCD. Now press the [B] key to save the
setting, and press the Knob to exit the Menu
mode. Now press and hold in for 2 seconds the
“SCAN” soft key (A, B, C, or D). You will notice that
the “SCN’ icon has disappeared. Release the
SCAN soft key at this point.
Repeat this process for any other channels you
wish to edit. To restore a particular channel to your
scanning list, press and hold in the SCAN soft key
again for 2 seconds; the “SCN” icon will re-ap-
pear. There must be at least three channels in the
Scan List, or the radio will not scan.
S03 BEEP (Keypad Beeper On/Off)
After selecting Menu Item S03 and pressing the
[A] key, rotate the Knob to enable (“ON”) or dis-
able (“OFF”) the keypad beep tones. Press [B]
then the Knob to exit.

After selecting Menu Item S04 and pressing the
[A] key, rotate the Knob to enable (“ON”) or dis-
able (“OFF”) the alert bell which sounds when
your radio is called using either CTCSS or DCS
calling tones. Press [B] then the Knob to exit.
S05 LITE (TX/BUSY LED On/Off)
After selecting Menu Item S05 and pressing the
[A] key, rotate the Knob to enable (“ON”) or dis-
able (“OFF”) the LED which serves as the “Busy
Channel” and “Transmitter On” indicator. Turning
this LED off will extend battery life somewhat.
Press [B] then the Knob to exit.
S06 LOCK (Keypad, PTT, or Knob Disabling)
In some situations, you may wish to disable the
keypad’s keys, the Knob, and/or the PTT switch

After selecting Menu ltem S06 and pressing the
[A] key, rotate the Knob to select “©” (PTT Lock),
“7” (Dial—Knob—Lock), “К” (Keypad Lock), or
various combinations of these. Press [B] then the
Knob to exit.
S07 TAG (Channel Name Tags On/Off)
Your Dealer may have programmed Alpha-Nu-
meric designators to each channel, to aid in rec-
ognition of each channel by the user of the radio.
These Channel Nametags may be turned on or
off; when disabled, the display will indicate “CHAN
1,” CHAN 2,” etc. instead of the Nametag.
After selecting Menu Item S07 and pressing the
[A] key, rotate the Knob to enable ( ON”) or dis-
able (“OFF”) the Channel Nametag feature. Press
[B] then the Knob to exit.
S08 GRP (Group Select)

rotate the Knob to enable (“ON”) or disable
(“OFF”) the scanner. Press [B] then the Knob to
exit.
e S10 DW (Dual Watch On/Off)
This function generally will be assigned to a Soft
Key by the Dealer. We do not recommend activa-
tion of Dual Watch via the Menu System.
® S11 TXPO (Transmitter Power)
This function allows you to change the preset
transmitter power level. To do this, after selecting
Menu Item S11 and pressing the [A] key, rotate
the Knob to select either high or low power, then
press [B] and then the Knob to exit.
If this feature does not work, S11 may have been
disabled by the Dealer during the programming
process, so as to ensure that you always are set
to high power.
e S12 TA (Talk Around)
This function will generally be assigned to a Soft
Key, as the user will generally want to switch
quickly between Repeater and Talk-Around op-
eration. To activate Talk Around from the Set

and pressing the [A] key, rotate the knob to enable
Advanced Operation
11
(“ON”) or disable (“OFF”) Talk Around. Press [B]
then the Knob to exit.
S13 ENCR (Encryption)
On channels where scrambling is used, an incor-
rect setting of (or failure in) the encryption system
at one end of the communication path will make it
impossible to talk to the other station. To change
the current status of encryption on your radio,
after selecting Menu Item S13 and pressing the
[A] key, rotate the Knob to enable (“ON”) or dis-
able (“OFF”) encryption. Press [B] then the Knob
to exit. Or use the Dealer-programmed Soft Key
to switch to the non-Encryption mode temporarily.
Remember that disabling encryption will mean
that your transmissions are no longer secure.
Return to the encrypted mode as soon as pos-
sible, and do not discuss any critical or confi-
dential information while in the non- encrypted
mode of operation
S14 TEL (Telephone Number Autodialer)
Your Dealer may have programmed auto-dial
telephone numbers into your radio at the time of
preparation of the transceiver. To engage the
autodial feature, push the appropriate Dealer-pro-
grammed Soft Key. If no Soft Key has been so
designated, after selecting Menu Item S14 and
pressing the [A] key, rotate the Knob to select the
telephone number memory (1 ~ 10. . .you must
have a list separately, as there is no “scratchpad”
showing the actual telephone number). Now
press [B] to save the telephone memory channel;
when you press the Knob to exit, the telephone
number will automatically be dialed on the current
channel. To re-dial, complete the entire procedure
in this section again.
e S15 TSAV (Transmit Battery Saver)
To toggle the Transmit Battery Saver on and off
from the Set Function Mode, after selecting Menu
Item 15 and pressing the [A] key, rotate the Knob
to enable (“ON”) or disable (“OFF”) the Transmit
Battery Saver. Press [B] then the Knob to exit.
e 516 DTMF (DTMF Page Call Memory Select)
During DTMF Page Call operation, you can
change the calling code from the Set Function
mode. After selecting Menu Item 16 and pressing
the [A] key, rotate the Knob to select Page Code
1 through 10. As usual, press [B] then the Knob to
exit.
O 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.
Understanding Radio Waves
14
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 =" will appear on
the LCD. If you subsequently move back into
range, as soon as the other station transmits, your
beeper will sound, and “(” will appear on the LCD.
@ DTMF Paging System
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
(unless you have disabled it, as described pre-
viously).
The three-digit code of the station which paged you
will be displayed on your radio's LCD. See the
previous section (S16) for operating instructions.
® Nuisance Channel Deletion
Any channel (except the “Priority” Channel) that
has become a nuisance due to a hung-up
transmitter, noise, or traffic not currently of interest
to you may be temporarily deleted from the Scan
List.
To make such a deletion, while the radio is in the
Scan mode and “Paused” on the “nuisance” chan-
nel, press and hold in the “Scan” soft key (A, B, C,
or D, or the Knob) for two seconds. The “nuisance”
channel will now be temporarily deleted from the
Scan List, and the radio will resume scanning.
The deleted channel(s) will be restored © if the
scanner is stopped and then restarted, or @ when
the radio is turned off and then back on.
Understanding Radio Waves
Radio waves travel from one point to another by
several different means. The general term for these
methods of wave travel is “Propagation.”
You may know that “short-wave” broadcast signals
can be propagated over distances of several thou-
sand miles by reflection off the upper regions of the
atmosphere. Your VX-10 transceiver, on the other
hand, operates on the VHF (134-174 MHz) or UHF
(400-512 MHz) band. On these bands, radio waves
generally do not reflect off the ionosphere; instead,
the radio waves behave almost like light wavesthey
travel in a straight line, and when they meet a
building or obstruction, they go no further in that
direction.
Therefore, when operating a VHF or UHF radio, it
is advantageous for you to be as high and free from
obstructions as possible, so as to cover the great-
est distance. If you operate from inside a car or
building, the surrounding metal can be expected to
absorb a significant amount of the signals (both
transmitted and received). Coverage may therefore
be very poor under these conditions. Moving closer
to a window will, of course, improve the situation in
many cases.
Because radio waves at VHF and UHF are similar
(in many ways) to light waves, they will reflect off of
hills and buildings to some degree. In a crowded
urban area, with many buildings close together,
these reflections can cause rapid variations in sig-
nal strength as you walk or drive around. Therefore,
if a signal is very weak, try walking a few feet in any
direction. Reception may suddenly become clear,
as a particular reflection path becomes dominant.
Such reflections are frequently useful, as they may
allow communication between two stations over a
highly-obstructed path.
Always hold the radio up high, near your mouth,
while transmitting. In this way, the antenna is high
and in the clear, and coverage is best.
