Michael Zito: Any problems with the antenna mount?
Bruce Forster: I have a VX-8 DR. It has developed an issue because I DROPPED IT on the asphalt. It still works, but lost its Water resistance. The ONLY reason I'm going to replace it is because I have so many accessories. I think my VX-8 DR is VERY much like your VX-7. GREAT RADIOS!
rob b: YET ANOTHER retarded Prepper doomsday Prick !
drspastic: preppers eh? just an excuse for psychos to buy more toys. bottom line is in a real emergency the vx7r gives the best performance as you can listen to mw and sw public broadcasts from outside your own country (your shtf location will tend to lie or spread propaganda). it also can cover huge distances on 6m with the right antenna. as for the guns.... well the only place you need guns as your primary emergency kit would be america because of all these gun nut preppers WAITING IN HOPE FOR DISASTERS SO THEY CAN START SHOOTING FOLKS. real life situations in civilised nations will not need guns but radios will help often, even just p2p or sar when the cells are down. if you do find shtf in usa the best means to survive would be find a yacht and sail away.
NORMAN BROWN: Can you charge the batteries with the ankar solar panel and the ankar battery bank?
Mr. Squirrel: This is just a great great review. Many thanks!! Helpful and not full of unnecessary detail...goes right to the nuts and bolts of the matter. Keep up these great vids!!
HamRadioConcepts: I have had both of these radios, as well as others. Now i have the FT1DR and the FT2DR check out my channel "Hamradioconcepts" i have some fusion videos in the works now. 73
M0RSF: I made the mistake of selling my Yaesu VX7R to buy a Yaesu VX8GE. I have just recently managed to source a new Yaesu VX7R and I won't be making the mistake of letting this one go. I have owned several handhelds and without doubt the VX7R is the best handheld anyone could buy. 73 Chris M0RSF
Uncle Fester: Okay... so what's the range on these things when it comes to communicating back and forth with another person in your camp or circle (I am getting conflicting info some say 20-miles others say 200-miles) ??? Also I have portable solar pack to recharge multiple electronic devices... so what kind of adapter is on or plug in is on the charger??? Also you were not real clear on battery life for either one. Please respond or somebody respond. I want a good walkie talkie type radio like this VX-7R that is durable, water resistant, has plenty of range, and is reliable with all the other features these types have to offer. Range is especially important for clear communication with another team that may be way out in front of you, or communicating with another base camp that is far away. Please respond. Thank You.
Jeffrey Gillis: You talk a lot and say little. I could not stand more than a minute.
jim maddog: Don't forget the 7R will talk with the PRC-10,PRC-25,PRC-77 and PRC-6 on the six meter band although the 7r is narrow band while the PRCs are wide band it still can be done.Jim
gadgetdesk: VX-7R is more beautiful!
Tony Pelliccio: I have the VX-7Rb and the only reason I like it is because it has the 6m band. When push comes to shove power networks are going to go tits up so you need slightly longer wavelength to communicate when the repeaters are gone.
alejandro andriadse: si muy buen handy otro handy el ft530 la unica falla es el flex que yo soy el unico que los reparo
Idaho guy: Where can i buy the 7R at I can't find any on the web any where?
roddyk05: Having watched this, I'm glad I bought my 7R. Apart from the GPS ( which I wouldn't use anyway ) you appear to favour the 7. They are both excellent radios. I do a lot of SOTA with mine and it's spent a lot of time exposed to the elements on wet and windy hilltops without problem. The metal case and rubber corner guards help protect it when it falls occasionally. Keep up the good reviews.
MrSeeker2013: would you go with a vx-8dr now?
Matthew Knowles: Check out the VX-8DR
Quad Band with APRS
marita karten: It's a little difficult to program and chirp can't do everything I need. But it's a cheap radio and works like it.
here is the link to it in case anyone is interested: amzn.to\17AQYM4
ThePauperPrepper: Im curious. Why such a concern if this man wants to be prepared? I certainly don't care if you don't want to prepare for the myriad of possible SHTF scenarios. Why don't you start your own channel and explain to the world why there is no need to try and be ready (as best as 1 can) for any emergency? I think it would be interesting. And then you could vent all your great information to the masses. BTW, did u notice that people lived thru Fukishima. Would you rather have been prepared or begging?
