VX-3R alternatives

Post by Burncycle » Sat Oct 13, 2018 10:33 pm

I had a UV-3R with the intent on eventually picking up a VX-3R, which is now discontinued and difficult to find.

The appeal to me was the size, and I was wondering if there are any alternatives in the same class out there?

The VX-6R is an ultra-rugged 144-430 MHz FM Hand-Held featuring wide receiver coverage, JIS7 submersibility, the Yaesu-exclusive Emergency Automatic Identification (EAI) system, and ultra-simple keyboard access to important features.

New on the VX-6R is the One-Touch Direct Memory Recall feature, that allows you to recall ten favorite memories with a single button press, just like on your car stereo.

The VX-6R comes equipped with a high-capacity 1400 mAh Lithium-Ion Battery Pack.
