1400 mAh Battery Pack Yields Long Operating Time. The VX-170 is supplied with a long-life 1400 mAh Ni-MH Battery Pack, for extended operating time during search-and-rescue or public service event operations. The receiver's frequency range is 137-174 MHz, covering many public service, marine, and government channels.To prevent an unauthorized person from using your VX-170, you may engage a security password that must be keyed in prior to operation, if you like. The 200 memories may be partitioned into as many as 10 memory groups. Alpha-numeric labeling is available on all memories. Operating frequencies may be entered directly from the front panel keypad, which may also be used for quick recall of memory channels by number. Version, a dedicated special memory bank of ten NOAA Weather Channels is available, with a "Severe Weather" alert capability. EAI (Emergency Automatic ID) Feature. Ideal for search-and-rescue work, the EAI feature can be commanded on so as to identify your VX-170, and engage your PTT and microphone, remotely in an emergency situation. So if you don't check in during a search, help can be dispatched, with the automatic TX function allowing others to perform direction finding. The EAI feature is not included in the U. Besides the usual CTCSS and DCS Encode/Decode features you've come to know and love on a Yaesu transceiver, the VX-170 includes a "Split Tone" capability that allows you to Encode a CTCSS tone, and Decode DCS, or vice-versa. You can also Encode (without decoding) either CTCSS or DCS. This item is in the category "Consumer Electronics\Radio Communication\Antennas\Ham, Amateur Radio Antennas".
