The Yaesu VX-5R is a triple band (6M, 2M & 440 MHz) HT with extensive receive coverage, and leading-edge features. It receives the AM and FM broadcast bands, shortwave (AM) to 16 MHz, VHF and UHF TV audio, VHF Air and public service frequencies. The specific ranges covered are: 0.5-16, 47-729 and 800-999 (less cellular). The die-cast aluminum housing, augmented by an extensive gasketing system sets a new standard for water resistance among amateur HTs. This robust construction has earned it a MIL-STD 810 rating.

At only 2.3 x 3.4 x 1.1 inches (58x87x28 mm) it will go with you everywhere. Hikers and mountain climbers may connect the optional SU-1 Barometric Sensor for direct air pressure readings. The VX5R comes with SMA Antenna, FNB-58LI Lithium Ion Battery, NC-72B Battery Charger, Belt Clip and Wrist Strap. The VX5R is black, but there is also a silver version.
