RE: Yaesu VX7R

I use a Yaesu VX-1R for downlink when I am mobile and works fine. The
receiver is very sensitive and I have no desense problems with the uplink (I
use an old 15W Alinco and a 1/4 VHF antenna). The TX setup is fixed in my
car as my mobile rig, and when I works satellites I use my VX-1 with
earphones from the window for downlink. I can work the passes above 20
degrees  receiving the satellite with the original rubber duck and for low
elevation passes I use a 19 in. rubber whip. I can do transatlantic qso´s
with this simple setup (some transatlantic stations worked recently from
IM67IE (holiday QTH) are WA1ECF, KB2M, N1ZKB and VE1PLB).

Asunto: RE: [amsat-bb] Yaesu VX7R

I've owned a VX5R for several years now and found it to be a super HT; full
featured, sensitive receiver, not easily overloaded.  Yes, the case can get
hot, particularly if you leave it sitting on your carseat with the windows
closed, in the hot Midwest summertime.  I've been using mine for my downlink
on UO-14 and been very impressed with the performance, even with the
rubberduck.  I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reliable,
easy-to-operate/program HT.
