Vertex Standard VX-351 PMR

Vertex Standard VX-351 PMR handhelds

I also have a pair of Vertex Standard (Yaesu’s parent company) PMR handheld radios.

These radios are capable of covering the 400 – 470 MHz UHF frequency range across 16 pre-programmed channels. Various methods of access control can be used, such as CTCSS or DCS encoding.

In the UK, these are normally supplied programmed to the 8 licence-free PMR channels. Software to program the channels is available and makes the re-programming of these easy.

Both my VX-351’s are programmed identically, the first 8 channels to the UK PMR frequencies. The remaining 8 channels are programmed for the 70cm calling channel and some local 70cm repeaters.
