Ahh... cannot tahan lagi to get it.. going to chepot then bought VX-3R..

Nice HT with full wide band RX.. lightest n world smallest HT..

2. APO - not power off, but Automatic Power ON.. hehe
3. LED light - it will glow white (for emergency flashlight at night)
4. 1.5watt on high TX... hahahahaaaaa

and more... buy also to find out too laa...


Following in the proud tradition of theVX-1 and VX-2R; the Yaesu VX-3R microminiature 2 meter/440 MHz handheld has extensive receive frequency coverage, providing local-area two-way amateur communications along with unmatched monitoring capability. The VX-3R receives: 500 - 1800 kHz (AM Band), 1.8 - 30 MHz (Shortwave), 30 - 76 MHz (VHF Lowband with 6M), 76 - 108 MHz (FM band), 108 - 137 MHz (Air Band), 137 - 174 MHz (VHF High band with 2M), 174 - 222 MHz (VHF TV audio), 222 - 420 MHz (VHF band with 220), 420 - 470 MHz (440), 470 - 800 MHz (UHF-TV audio) and 800 - 999 MHz (800 band [cellular blocked]). It is the world's smallest HT with 1.5/1.0 watt output on 2M/440.

Its incredible size allows you to take it anywhere. Receive range is: 500 kHz to 999 MHz (less cellular). This means you can hear the AM, shortwave and FM broadcast bands, TV audio, aircraft and public service channels. CTCSS/DCS with split tone capability is built in. You get a huge 1000 channel memory system.

Power output is with the supplied 1 amp hour Lithium Ion battery 1.5 watts VHF and 1 watt UHF. With the optional E-DC-21 DC adapter output jumps to 3 watts and 2 watts! The VX-3R comes with the FNB-82LI lithium ion battery, NC-85B wall charger and YHA-66 SMA flexible antenna.
