Direct Keypad Frequency Entry
For ease of access to any operating frequency, use the frot panel's 10-key keypad to enter the frequency digits directly. And for tuning the bands, the VR-500 features automatic mode ad frequency step selection, to align you with the standard band configuratons in use worldwide.
Real-Time 60-Channel Band Scope
