For the monitoring professional who's on the go, the VR-120D Hand-held Receiver is the ideal choice!
Featuring wide-band AM/FM coverage from 100 kHz up to 1300 MHz, rugged construction, and amazing ease of operation, the VR-120D provides up to 640 memory channels, so you can store all your favorite stations, whether they're on shortwave, local AM broadcast, or FM public service frequencies! Optional external DC input.
The VR-120D is specially designed for low battery life, typically providing 20 hours of operation on a pair of "AA" Alkaline batteries (at 40 mW audio output). The Battery Saver function reduces battery drain dramatically when no signals are being received.
The no-nonsense front panel of the VR-120D contains four large keys which are used for command of the receivers many operating functions. These keys, the Function key on the side, and the Main Tuning Knob are all you need to tune in on the DX action! The display and function keys are fully illuminated, for ease of operation at night.
The VR-120D provides continuous coverage of the frequency range 0.1 ~ 1299.995 MHz (cellular frequencies are blocked and non-restorable). This wide frequency range is conveniently separated into twelve band segments, for maximum convenience.
When you set a frequency, the operating mode (AM/FM/Wide-FM) and channel steps appropriate for that frequency range are automatically selected, for ease in tuning around in search of other stations. Of course, you can manually select the mode and tuning steps, if you have other requirements in that tuning range.
You can set up the VR-120D so that four high-priority stations may be recalled from special memory channels, using a single press of one of the front panel keys.
The VR-120D includes a versatile 640-channel Memory system, which allows partitioning of the channels into ten Banks of 64 channels each. You can group shortwave broadcast, FM broadcast, Public Safety, and Amateur Radio channels separately, for maximum tuning convenience!
Efficient scanning is the key to any receivers performance, and the VR-120D is a champion when it comes to scanning! A special Search Band Scanning function assigns seven memory channels as scanning limits, and for skipping particular frequencies a 64-channel Skip memory bank lets you tune past stations you dont need to monitor. Among the Memory Scan features are: "Full Memory Scan "Memory Bank Scan "Selected Memory Channel (Preferential) Scan "Programmable Band-Limit Memory Scan (PMS) "Smart Search" (Automatic Memory Loading) "Priority Channel Watch "Dual Watch
The VR-120D includes a Channel Counter feature, which measures the frequency of a very strong signal in your immediate vicinity, allowing you to zero in manually on the other stations frequency.
And if you experience a lull in the monitoring action, play the VR-120D Slot Machine Game! A three-column random-number generator lets you match your wits against the VR-120s microprocessor in an amusing game of chance
