Air Band Operation, VOR Navigation, FM Broadcast. and US BRS Band Reception includedVXA-700
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 tools, along with convenient reception of the FM Broadcast band during down time. And you get the additional monitoring excitement afforded by receiver coverage of the Business Radio Service (BRS) band, a YAESU exclusive!

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.

Submersible (IPX7)
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 low power 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 de energizing 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 Airband Transceivers.

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.

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.
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.

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.
