Title: Yaesu VX-5R manual
Post by: KB9YOX on April 03, 2001, 02:31:42 AM
I recently purchased a Yaesu vx-5r radio, but using it could be a slight problem. I'm blind, and reading the manual is a very painful process when you have to impose on others time. Another option is to scan the manual, and then use my computer to read (listen)to the resulting text. I was wondering if anyone has, or knows where I can find an electronic version of this manual. I've searched and searched, but all I can seem to find are reviews. If anyone can point me in the direction of a text file (in English <grin>) it would be much apriciated.
Very much Thanks in advance

If you go to www.yaesu.com/amateur/techsupport   they can help you with manuals or whatever else you need regarding your radio. Good luck

I have a VX-5R and find it a great little handheld. I found a handy pocket reference guide that is much shorter and more concise than the Yaesu manual and it is available from ve3ayr for $7.95 US.

The website is
http://www.bigwave.ca/~janus/hrm/vx5/index.html

You can email him at  ve3ayr@rac.ca  perhaps he could make a text version available to you.

Good luck

Is there a Packet Reference available for a FT857D?

I am so sorry others didn't answer your question already - here is a link to the
.pdf VX-5R owners manual ...

And here is a three-page summary / cheat sheet of that 86-page manual ...
