The VX-160, VHF 5 Watt 148-174 MHz (Untuned Antenna), is a Rugged, Durable Portable Ideal for Factory, Fleet, Schools, Retail, Security or Construction. It is one of the most affordable portable radios available in the market with a wide range of accessories to suit everyones needs.
Built to meet or exceed the requirements of the U.S. MIL-STD 810 C/D/E standards, the VX-160 is designed to survive under difficult operating conditions of shock, vibration, and driving rain. Cost-performance begins with durability, and the Mil-Spec toughness of the VX-160 is your guarantee of its design quality.
Housed inside a high-impact case, the diecast chassis of the VX-160 provides a solid, rugged foundation for the VX-160's circuitry. Built to survive in the real world of factory, construction site, or fleet use, the VX-160 will provide many years of reliable communications.
To facilitate efficient channel management, the VX-160 provides Busy Channel Lock-Out (BCLO) and Busy Tone Lock-Out (BTLO) features. What's more, the transmitter's Time-Out Timer (TOT) function prevents a "stuck microphone" condition from jamming a channel for an extended period of time.
Included in the VX-160 is Vertex Standard's exclusive ARTS™ feature, which can be critically important in search-and-rescue applications. ARTS™ provides a "hand-shake" with other ARTS™ equipped transceivers, and the display indicates if an "Out of Range" condition exists. The base station can then alert the field unit to move to a better location.
