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.
DIRECT KEYPAD FREQUENCY
ENTRY - 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.
REAL-TIME 60-CHANNEL* BAND
SCOPE - 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
*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!
MULTIPLE POWER SOURCE
CAPABILITY - 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.
