   More Information and Details


General Information:
Yaesu's years of hand-held transceiver design know-how bring you the ultra-compact VR-500 Receiver, measuring just 58 x 24 x 95 mm (2.28" x .95" x 3.74") and weighing 220 g (less than 1/2 lb.)! Take the VR-500 anywhere you go. . .and stay on top of the action!

WIDE BAND, MULTI-MODE FREQUENCY COVERAGE - Providing continuous* frequency coverage from 100 kHz through 1299.99995 MHz, the VR-500 includes reception of narrowband FM, wideband FM (for broadcast/TV), SSB (USB/LSB), CW, and AM.
*Cellular telephone frequencies are blocked and cannot be restored.

- For ease of access to any operating frequency, use the front panel's 10-key keypad to enter the frequency digits directly. And for tuning the bands, the VR-500 includes automatic mode and frequency step selection, to align you with the standard band configurations in use worldwide.

Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express Accepted

- For monitoring band activity above and below your current listening frequency, the VR-500 provides one-touch access to its 60-channel* Band Scope. The radio will sweep the band, making a note of activity on the band, so you can quickly move frequency to listen to active channels. 
*Range 6MHz/Step 100 kHz

IDEAL FOR OUTDOOR USE - The VR-500's tough polycarbonate case is designed to withstand the rigors of camping, or other outdoor activities.

FULL ILLUMINATION FOR DISPLAY AND KEYPAD - Operation of the VR-500 is a pleasure, thanks to the large (18 x 37 mm) 24-character + 7 x 60 Dot Matrix display. The display and keypad's keys are illuminated, too, so you can monitor any time--day or night!

LARGE HIGH-OUTPUT SPEAKER - The large (32 mm) front-panel speaker provides clean, crisp audio output, whether you're listening to FM broadcast, business communications, or SSB ham radio messages!

- The VR-500 accepts a variety of DC power sources. For everyday portable operation, use two "AA" batteries. Available as an option is the FNB-59 Ni-Cd Battery Pack, which can be recharged for maximum convenience. For operation from your car or truck choose the E-DC-5B DC Cable with Cigar-lighter Plug. Also available are the NC-60B/C AC Adapter and the E-DC-6 DC Cable, for use with an external DC power source.
