around town, and its operation flexibility brings the user many avenues of operating enjoyment. Besides the 50, 144, and 430
MHz transmit operation, the VX-5R provides receive coverage of the AM and FM broadcast bands, HF short-wave bands up
to 16 MHz, VHF and UHF TV bands, the VHF AM aircraft band, and a wide range of commercial and public safety
frequencies! With its unique optional Barometer pressure sensor unit provides readout of barometric pressure and altitude while
mountain climbing and hiking.
The transmitter section provides 5 watts of clean power output on the 50 MHz and 144 MHz bands with the supplied
FNB-58LI high-capacity Lithium-Ion battery pack, 7.2V @ 1100 mAh and 4.5 watts output on 430 MHz. When 13.8 V DC
power is supplied from external source, power output is 5 watts on all bands.
