The new VXR-9000 is a rack mount 50 W, (there is a 100 W internal option
coming soon), 32 channel repeater. It can be used in Base or Repeat mode.
Six programmable function keys are located up front for easy operation.
With over 20 different functions available in programming, the function keys can assist with common functions custom designed
to your needs.
There is an up front loudspeaker with volume for monitoring. Add
the optional desk mic and you have a fully function base station with 32 channels and scan.
The rear panel has inputs for backup power if your main DC power supply
should fail (there is no internal power supply). If the repeater does revert to the backup DC supply, it can be programmed
to send a CW alert over the air to let you know of the problem. There are many programmable CW messages that can
Features like intelligent built in fan, command sequences, multi-tone
operation push this repeater to the next level !
For uninterrupted operation during power
failures, a 12-volt rechargeable type battery (55-Ah or more recommended) may be connected to the BACKUP terminal posts on
the rear panel.
In the event of an unexpected interruption of the Main DC Power Source, the automatic power control circuit will automatically
switch the repeater to the backup battery, and operation will not be interrupted.
After prolonged operation from the battery, (Backup Power Source), it should be disconnected from the repeater and recharged
separately before re-connecting.
Never reapply the Main Power Source to the repeater with a discharged battery connected as backup, as the DC startup current
can damage the repeater and battery. While operating from a backup battery, the repeater requires approximately 7 amperes
at 12 Volts during transmit.
There are six programmable function keys
on the front face of the repeater. There are over 20 functions available for programming to these buttons. Each button can
also have a secondary function for a total of 12 separate functions from a relatively simple layout. Functionality and ease
