INVERTIBLE LCD DISPLAY
Providing indication of either the channel number or an Alphanumeric Channel Label of up to 8 characters, the LCD display may be inverted when the radio is worn on the body. Convenient operation function icons provide instant recognition of radio status. And the display is canted forward 15° from horizontal to ensure easy visibility over a wide range
of viewing angles,
especially from the front.
The top panel's rugged rotary switch may be used for channel selection, or for selection of the desired Memory Group.
A soft key may be assigned as a "Key Lock" control, to prevent inadvertent frequency change or unwanted activation/de-activation of functions. This is especially valuable in surveillance operations, where the radio may be concealed and subject to accidental pressure on its keys.
The carefully-engineered case construction features a gently rounded shape for a solid grip, whether the radio is wet or dry. Its over-sized front panel keys are easy to activate, even for users with large fingers.
The VX-900 may be programmed to transmit an emergency DTMF ANI burst, with or without a "live microphone" engaged, to alert the dispatcher to an emergency situation requiring assistance to the officer.
