The Yaesu VX-8R HT provides a full 5 watts FM on 50/144/430 MHz plus 1.5 watts on 222 MHz. It supports Bluetooth® hands-free operation with the optional BU-1 and BH-1 or BH-2 accessories. There is also an optional GPS unit and antenna with loads of features. This radio supports APRS 1200/9600 bps data communication (B band only). Like the VX7R, the VX8R is submersible and meets IPX57 specifications (3 feet for minimum of 30 minutes). A powerful 7.4 V 1100 mAh Lithium Ion battery is included. This HT is small, intuitive to operate only 2.36 x 3.74 x 0.92 inches (thinner than VX-7R). It supports simultaneous independent 2-signal dual receive function with both V + V or U + U. It has weather band receive with Weather Alert. A barometric sensor is included. You can even operate Amateur radio while receiving FM broadcasts! The receive coverage is wider than VX-7R, with an independent AM/FM broadcast receiver circuit. The dot matrix LCD display provides memory tag up to a maximum of 16 characters. You even get a high-resolution Spectrum Analyzer with ±60 channels indication with wave monitoring of received/modulated signal! And DCS and CTCSS encode and decode is standard. The VX-8R has been replaced by the VX-8DR. Please see below.
The Yaesu VX-8DR is an APRS® enhanced version of the popular VX-8R. Key additional features of the VX-8DR include:
(Please also see the Yaesu VX-8GR that covers 2 meters and 440 MHz (RX 108-999 MHz (less cellular) with built-in GPS).
The VX-8R, VX-8DR and VX-8GR come with the SMA antenna, FNB-101LI Lithium Ion battery pack (7.4V 1100 mAh), belt clip and slow charger. (The slow charger should only be used for receive, because it is not capable of supplying sufficient current to support transmit).
