Vertex VXR9000

High performance and reliable operation

The VXR-9000E is a 25-Watt repeater designed to ensure reliable service during peak spectrum congestion times. The slim-line design is crafted for easy installation and integration into most repeater sites.


Large Channel Capacity With Priority Scan
The VXR-9000E may be programmed with up to 32 channels over a wide frequency range and can perform in repeater or base station mode, depending on the application. Includes Priority Channel scanning capability for efficient communications monitoring.

Power Supply Backup With Alert
Should DC power fail at the repeater site, the VXR-9000E will automatically revert to a backup DC power source, if connected. Under backup DC power, the repeater will transmit an alert message to notify the operator that immediate attention is required at the repeater site.

Flexible, Automatic Command Sequence Configuration
The VXR-9000E may be programmed to perform a five-step sequence of commands for certain operating events. For example, during a DC power failure and the repeater switches to a backup power supply, the repeater can be programmed to switch to low power and send a CW ID advising of the situation, etc.

Designed For High Reliability
The cooling fan diameter is 8 cm and thermostatically controlled to ensure a stable temperature environment for the VXR-9000E. Fan operation may be programmed for three options: off, continuous or temperature-controlled, depending on the application. A malfunction alarm is also included.

Simplex / Duplex Capability
The VXR-9000E is designed for simplex mode with single-antenna operation or full-duplex mode with the optional VXD-60 duplexer when optimal communications is necessary at all times.
