Extensive Channel Capacity with Priority Scan

Equipped with the ability to program up to 32 channels over a wide frequency range, the VXR-9000, which includes the Priority Channel scanning capability, is a reliable choice for efficient communication.

Automatic Power Revert with Alert

In case of a DC power failure at the repeater site, the VXR-9000 will automatically revert to a backup DC power source, which will then transmit an alert message to the operator that immediate attention is required at the repeater site.

Automatic Command Sequence Configuration for Flexibility

The VXR-9000 may be programmed to perform a five-step sequence of commands for certain operating events. For example, during a DC power failure and the repeater switches to a backup power supply, the repeater can be programmed to switch to low power and send a CW ID advising of the situation, etc.

Built for Great Reliability

Designed with a cooling fan diameter of 8cm and thermostatically controlled to ensure a stable temperature environment, the VX-9000 is built for resilience and reliability. Fan operation may be programmed for three options: off, continuous or temperature-controlled, depending on the application. A malfunction alarm is also included.
