The VX-2000V is carefully designed to allow the knowledgeable operator to make nearly all adjustments required for various station conditions, modes and operator preferences simply from the controls on the panels, without opening the case of the transceiver. The VX-2000V Operating Manual describes these adjustments, plus certain internal settings. Servicing this equipment requires expertise in handling surface mount chip components. Attempts by non-qualified persons to service this equipment may result in permanent damage not covered by warranty.For the major circuit boards, each side of the board is identified by the type of the majority of components installed on that side. In most cases one side has only chip components, and the other has either a mixture of both chip and lead components (trimmers, coils, electrolytic capacitors, packaged ICs, etc.), or lead components only.

4 or 40 channel version
The VX-2000 is available in a 4 channel or 40 channel configuration. For the customer who has only a couple of channels to deal with, the 4 channel front panel is the definition of simplicity. If you need more than 4 channels, the 40 channel version adds a two digit digital display. Very simple, very efficient.
Wide or Narrow bandwidth per channel
The VX-2000 allows simple programming of wide or narrow bandwidth. If your system will be going to narrowband in the near future, or if you currently have both wide and narrowband channel to communicate on, the VX-2000 makes the task as easy as selecting the bandwidth per channel during programming. Now, you don’t need to worry if this channel is wide or narrow, simply select the right channel and your ready to go !
DB9 Accessory Connection on the Rear Panel
The integrated DB9 connector makes interfacing outboard devices to your VX-2000 mobile.
Built to Last
Designed and built to pass grueling Mil-Std 810 tests for Shock, Vibration, Temperature and many more; the VX-2000 will give you years and years of reliable service.
