Re: VXA-220 Airband portable

Are there any FBO's or Pilot shops near you that carry the brand? Usually, you won't find a "dealer", like with Land Mobile units. It frustrates me that Vertex will bundle the fixed-wing headset adapter with the radio, and it won't work with products from one of the most popular headset manufacturer...

Re: VXA-220 Airband portable

I have a VXA-210, and a David Clark headset. The radio does not work properly when connected to the headset. I have not checked the impedance of the DC microphone, but I suspect that is the issue with the radio. To answer your question, I used the radios' PTT, with poor results. Check the impedance ...

for what it's worth, I have always read the radio first to obtain its "rev". Then I input the parameters, frequencies, blah, blah... Just today, programming new VX-210A's; the computer software rev was 1.0...the radios read , was 2.03 (I think). Regardless, all programming went well...now the units ...

Try selecting a different COM port in the software...my IBM thinkpad will only talk to the radios when COM 2 is selected.

Here's what worked for me:
programing a FTL-7011 UHF. Toshiba 490CDT running WIN95 in DOS mode. Vertex CE7 v3.3 Was able to read radio after 6 attempts, change channel configuration and upload to radio. As mentioned, you want to use a slow computer.

hmm...I think you need the CT-70 adapter cable; this connects to the DIN connector on the VPL-1. Also see the link on "Vertex" radios on this site. There is a reference to a custom adapter. I'm still using the FTL-7011 in my truck...gotta be 7-8 years old by now.

Forget the HT1000. No longer manufactured, and parts may be an issue down the road. The Vertex is waterproof, lighter and more capable than the HT ever was designed to be. I have the VX-920 configured as follows: VX-927 (4-button version), UHF, w/ VHF rx-board and VMDE-200 encode/decode board. MDC s...

I have similar issues with the new vx-920; here's the configuration: VX-924 (w/ 4 PF keys only) + VMDE-200 + SRX-4 Vhf RX. When MDC-1200 option is programmed for a given channel, the scan function for the group is disabled, and the PF keys don't function. When the MDC-1200 option is de-selected, all...
