Air Band Operation, VOR Navigation, FM Broadcast. and US BRS Band Receiption included
The multiple capabilities of the VXA-710 Spirit
yield unmatched operating and monitoring opportunities for the owner on
the go! Besides full voice transmit and receive operation on the Air
Band, the VXA-710 Spirit also provides extensive VOR and CDI Navigation

down time. And you get the additional monitoring excitement afforded by
receiver coverage of the Business Radio Service (BRS) band, a YAESU
160 Memory Channels (Incl. Pre-programmed "Book" Memories)
The extensive Memory system of the VXA-710 includes
70 "Main" memories, plus ninety preprogrammed "Book" memories, for
quick and easy recall of often-used frequencies. The memories may be
labeled with a title, for quick recognition.
The VXA-710's case, speaker enclosure, and controls
are carefully sealed against water ingress, allowing the transceiver to
be specified for protection against water ingress per IPX7
specifications (immersion to 3 feet/1 m for 30 minutes). So you need
not fear using your VXA-710 during severe weather.
Rugged Magnesium Die-Cast Construction
The unmatched ruggedness of the VXA-710 is coupled
with ultra-light weight, thanks to the die-cast magnesium case and
chassis construction. Rubber bumpers on the bottom corners of the case
protect it against damage from every-day bumps and scrapes.
Supplied Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery
The VXA-710 is supplied with a super-long-life 7.4
V, 1400 mAh Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (FNB-80LI), providing many hours
of operation and reliable charging without the "memory" effects that
can plague other battery types. With the optional CD-15A Charging Stand
and NC-72B/C AC Adapter, the FNB-80LI may be charged in as little as
2.5 hours, so you'll quickly be ready for more operating action! And
the optional FBA-23 Alkaline Battery Case will accept two "AA"
batteries (not supplied) for lowpower emergency operation. The
VXA-710's EXT DC jack will also accept 12 Volts from the NC-72B/C
directly (RX only), or from an external power supply.
Receive Battery Saver
This feature helps maximize battery life by
deenergizing the receiver section during periods of no activity, waking
the receiver up at user-selected intervals to sample for channel
activity. If no activity is detected, the Spirit goes back into its
"sleep" mode. Current consumption is significantly reduced, thereby
maximizing battery life. This feature is only found on Vertex Standard
Multi-Color Strobe LED Status Indicator
Among the more innovative features introduced in the
VXA-710 is the full-color Strobe LED, which provides indication of a
number of transceiver status items using different colors. Different
colors may be selected for each of the above conditions, and a total of
256 color shades are available, for customizing the colors just the way
you like them.
Dot Matrix Display
No Airband hand-held transceiver has a display that
even compares to the VXA-710's 132 x 64 dot matrix display. Providing
clear, easy-to-read indication of frequency and Navigation data alike,
the VXA-710's display includes an unparalleled array of graphical and
pictorial tools that make operation a breeze.
NOAA WEATHER CHANNELS (U.S.A. Only)
The Spirit can receive all 10 NOAA weather broadcast
frequencies. The Automatic Active Weather Channel Locator (a Vertex
Standard exclusive) automatically scans for active NOAA weather
stations in your area when WX band is selected.
NOAA "Severe Weather" Alert (U.S.A. Only)
The VXA-710 includes a special feature that sounds
an alarm when the special "Severe Weather" alert tone is received from
a Weather Broadcast station. This warns you of potentially
life-threatening flying conditions.
Backlit Keypad and Display with Dimmer
The front panel's keypad and LCD are illuminated in
Vertex Standard's renowned Omni-Glow amber hue, for excellent
visibility and minimal impact on your night vision. The Omni-Glow
display/ key illumination may be configured in a number of
battery-saving ways. Both Brightness and Contrast are adjustable. You
can set the illumination to appear continuously, or only for a few
seconds after a key is pressed. You can even turn the "Busy" Strobe
off, for additional battery conservation.
One Touch Emergency Frequency Access
For lightning-fast access to the 121.5 MHz Emergency
Frequency, a dedicated key on the front panel assures you of no delays
in summoning help in an emergency.
The channel configurations can be easily
re-programmed in minutes using the optional PC Programming cable
(CT-29+CT-97), software (CE75) and your PC. As your operating needs
change, you can quickly reprogram your Spirit with the important
frequency data you need.
