the receive and transmit frequencies are already the same.
When the “TA” function is activated, the “ ” icon will be indicated
on the LCD (LCD version).
TX Save Disable
Press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to disable
the Transmit Battery Saver, if you are operating in a location where
high power is almost always needed.
The Transmit Battery Saver helps extend battery life by reducing transmit power when a very strong signal from an apparently nearby station is being received.

memories (up to five memories) into your radio.
To dial a number, press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to toggle the pre-programmed Auto-Dial telephone number memory, then press the PTT switch. The DTMF tones sent during
the dialing sequence will be heard in the speaker.
Emergency
The VX-350 series includes an “Emergency” feature, which may be
useful, if you have someone monitoring on the same frequency as your
transceiver’s channel. For further details contact your VERTEX STANDARD dealer.
Option Switch 1, Option Switch 2
When the optional unit is installed, these functions have various uses.
For further details, contact your VERTEX STANDARD dealer.
Lock
Press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to lock
the VX-350’s knob, Programmable keys, and PTT switch. The precise lockout configuration is programmed by your VERTEX STANDARD dealer.
Follow-Me Scan
“Follow-Me” Scan feature checks a User-assigned Priority Channel
regularly as you scan the other channels. Thus, if only Channels 1, 3,
and 5 (of the 8 available channels) are designated for “Scanning,” the
user may nonetheless any channel as the “User-assigned” Priority Channel via the “Follow-Me” feature.
Press the assigned Programmable key to activate “Follow-Me” scanning, then turn the CH selector knob to the channel which you want to
designate as the “User-Assigned Priority Channel”. When the scanner

Press the assigned Programmable key. A tone will sound, and
the current squelch level will appear on the display.
Press the [Side 1]/[Side 2] key to select the desired squelch level.
Two seconds after releasing the [Side 1]/[Side 2] key, the display
will revert to the normal channel indication.
Lone Worker
Press and hold the assigned Programmable key to toggle the Lone
Worker feature “ON” and “OFF.”
The Lone Worker feature will emit an audible alarm for 30 seconds at
one second intervals when the Lone Worker Timer has expired. If the
user does not reset the timer by pressing the PTT switch, the radio
switches to the Emergency mode.
SQL Off
Press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to disable
the Noise and Tone squelch. Again press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to resume normal (quiet) Noise and Tone
squelch action.

the Current Memory Channel from the Scanning List. When you delete a channel from the Scanning List, a ringing beeper will sound, and
“ ” icon will disappear from the LCD (LCD version). To restore a
particular channel to your Scanning List, press (or press and hold) the
assigned Programmable key again; a ringing beeper will sound, and
“ ” icon will appear on the LCD (LCD version).
Whisper
Press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to increase the microphone gain; thus you can speak in a low voice (whisper) temporarily. Again press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to resume normal microphone gain.
Beep Off
Press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to disable
the radio beeps temporarily. Again press (or Press and hold) the assigned Programmable key to enable the radio beeps.
ARTS (Auto Range Transpond System)
This system is designed to inform you when you and another ARTSequipped station are within communication range.
During ARTS operation, your radio automatically transmits for about
1 second every 55 seconds (or 25 seconds: Dealer Programmed) in an
attempt to shake hands with the other station.
If you are out of range for more than two minutes, your radio senses
that no signal has been received, a ringing beeper will sound, and “OUT
RANGE” will appear on the LCD (on the LCD version). If you subsequently move back into range, as soon as the other station transmits,
your beeper will sound and “IN RANGE” will appear on the LCD (on
the LCD version).
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 will sound.
On the LCD version, the three-digit code of the station which paged
you will be displayed on your radio’s LCD.
