- Plug and Jack
CMP460A
Ideal for operation on modern repeater systems, the VX-7R includes
built-in Encoder/Decoder circuits providing 50 CTCSS (Subaudible)
tones and 104 DCS (Digital Coded Squelch) codes. Adding to the
versatility is provision for using "mixed" tone/code configurations
(CTCSS for TX, DCS for RX, or vice-versa)
ARTSTM (Auto-Range Transponding System)
Rugged Magnesium case with rubber bumpers and gaskets.
Utilizing the DCS capability of the transceiver, the ARTSTM
feature provides audio and/or visual confirmation that another
ARTS-equipped station is within communication range. If you are
in search-and-rescue operation, and get out of range of the base
station, ARTS will warn the base operator to advise you to move to
a better location.
™
INTERNET KEY FOR INSTANT ACCESS TO
A unique feature of the VX-7R is the new "Internet"
key, prominently located in the bottom right-hand
corner of the keypad, providing easy access to the
new WIRES™–ll Repeater-Internet-linking system.
Pressing the Internet key activates a single-tone
DTMF burst at the beginning of each transmission,
as required for Internet
linking access via a
WIRES ™–ll-configured
repeater system.
WIRES™–ll is an easy-to-install method of linking
repeaters via the Internet, for emergency
networking, "sister city" repeater communication,
or just plain fun. Requiring only a 56K dial-up
service (not an expensive DSL or T1 line),
WIRES™–ll can link up to 10 repeaters (by prior
arrangement), with a single DTMF tone (at the
start of each transmission) providing access to the
WIRES™–ll network.
While WIRES™–ll networks may be accessed using
any manufacturer's transceiver that is equipped
with a DTMF keypad, the VX-7R's Internet key
provides automatic transmission of the required
DTMF burst, for easy access when seconds count.

Among the more innovative features introduced in
the VX-7R is the full-color Strobe LED, which
provides indication of a number of transceiver
status items using different colors. The Menu
allows you to custom-design a color that you will
recognize for indication of "Busy Channel" for the
Main, Sub, and "Both" receive channels, as well as
"TX" indicators for the Main and Sub bands.
Different colors may be selected for each of the
above conditions, and a total of 256 color shades
are available, for customizing the colors just the
way you like them.

On/Off Timers
If you need to be sure to be on the air at an appointed time,
but don't want to waste battery power, use the VX-7R's
On and Off timers. Utilizing the microprocessor-based 24-hour
clock, the Timer will switch the radio on at the programmed
time, and just before switching
off it will emit an alert beep, so
you’ll be aware of the impending
shut-down of the transceiver.
"Quick-Draw" Swivel-Mount Belt Clip
Rugged, yet easy to use, the Quick-Draw Belt Clip locks in
place from any angle, but the VX-7R can only be removed
from an inverted position, It will swivel as you walk without
slipping off your belt, so there's less chance of having
your radio fall off your belt than with simpler designs.
Quick-Draw Belt Clip
locks into mount from
any angle, but won't
disengage unless
VX-7R is inverted.
No Amateur hand-held transceiver has a display
that even compares to the VX-7R's 132 x 64 dot matrix
display. Providing clear, easy-to-read indication of
both the Main and Sub band frequencies, operating
mode, and S-meters for both bands, the VX-7R's
display includes an unparalleled array of graphical
and pictorial tools that make operation a breeze.

The optional SU-1 Barometric Pressure Sensor Unit
provides indication of the current pressure, calibrated in
either units of inches or mm of mercury, hpa, or millibars.
On a hike, altitude (in feet or meters) can be deduced
from a starting pressure calculation, and a basic weather
trend forecast will also appear on the display! While
the transceiver is turned off, it can be set up to
monitor and display the temperature (in ˚F or ˚C),
pressure, altitude, or any combination of these.
Rotation over wide range
of angles does not cause
disconnection from mount.
24 Hour Clock
Audio Wave Meter
The VX-7R includes a built-in 24-hour clock, with calendar,
powered by a separate (rechargeable) Lithium-Ion
battery that will maintain clock data for up to two months

During monoband operation, you can also choose to
have the VX-7R display a
depiction of the incoming
audio waveform, just below
the frequency display field.
Change Icons and Fonts
During monoband operation, the huge size of the dot
matrix display allows the use of pictorial icons to depict a
number of band and operational status notations. You can
substitute icons, if you like, from
a selection of alternative icons, or
you can use the icon editor feature
to create your own icon or font.
