Unmatched Weatherproofing The VX-6R/E is rated to JIS7 specifications for submersion (up to 30 minutes at a depth of up to three feet), and because the microphone jack is sealed against water ingress, you can even use the CMP460 Speaker-Microphone while maintaining the submersibility of the VX-6R/E!
144/430 MHz: 5 Watts of Power
The supplied FNB-80LI (7.4 V/1400 mAh) provides up to 5 Watts of power output on both the 144 and 430 MHz bands. This high battery capacity provides a typical operating time of 7 hours, depending on operating conditions.
Wide-band Receiver Coverage
In addition to full operation on the 144 and 430 MHz Amateur bands, the VX-6R/E provides a wide range of monitoring excitement, thanks to its receiver s incredible frequency coverage of 504 kHz to 998.99 MHz. We recommend the use of an external antenna for best performance on particular bands of interest, such as Shortwave.
The Most Memories Ever
Each of the 900 available memory channels may be assigned an alpha-numeric "Tag" (label), for quick identification of the channel. The 24 memory banks may store up to 100 channels each, and a channel may be assigned into multiple banks, if desired. And you can assign an identification tag to each memory bank.
Weather Sensor Capability
The optional SU-1 Barometric Pressure Sensor unit permits monitoring of sudden weather changes by monitoring atmospheric pressure. Although not designed for precise pressure measurements, it can be a valuable tool for alerting you to possibly dangerous changes in weather conditions.
Note: Specifications are subject to change without notice, and are guaranteed within the 144 and 430MHz Amateur Bands only. Frequency Ranges will vary according to transceiver version; check with your dealer.
