Product Description

Communications

The multi-purpose VX-1700 Single Side Band (SSB) radio is designed to operate as mobile radio or as a base station for long-haul land mobile radio (LMR)communications. With operating modes: Lowerside/Upperside – LSB/USB (J3E and J2B); Amplitude Modulation – AM (A3E) and CW (A1A) the VX-1700 is ideal for a wide variety of applications.

Large Channel CapacityThe VX-1700 can store 200 channels arranged in five groups with the flexibility to have any number of channels per group. Each channel can be programmed with 6-character alphanumeric description for quick and easy call mamangement.

Dual Watch Operation

Operate the VX-1700 radio on one channel while periodically monitoring the designated memory channel to ensure a call is not missed. Ideal for emergency management situations when it is important that a call gets through to dispatch.”

Flexible Calling Options

Includes six built-in call modes to support various communications:

  • Selective Call (SELCALL) – place calls to an individual or group using assigned ID number for each transceiver for private calling
  • Beacon Request Call – check signal quality between transceivers before placing a selective call to verify if a call can be placed
  • Telephone Call (TELCALL) – place call through telephone interconnect service to expand contact to individuals via phone
  • Message Call – send text messages (up to 64 characters) to another transceiver for expanded communication options
  • Position Request Call – monitor position information of another transceiver when used as a mobile unit
  • Position Send Call – transmit position

Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) OptionWith the ALE-1 option installed the VX-1700 selects the best Link Quality Analysis (LQA) score from the programmed channels automatically.

Additional Features

  • 6-Character Alphanumeric Channel Label
  • Noise Blanker
  • CW Semi Break-In
  • CW Side Tone Function
  • Voice Operated eXchange (VOX)
