Just picked up a used VX 4207-7-45 for $125. it is both 90 and 95 compliant. Has anyone used one of these? if so how did you like it? Any hints or tricks to them?

How did you determine this radio was Part 95 certified?...William

I saw a few of these radios at a dealers store a few years back and they were excellent radios.I almost bought one but I was spending what money I did have getting my first GMRS repeater tuned and that has been a few years ago.I think if you can get it programmed you will have an excellent radio.I was just unsure about the certification and want to make sure it was Part 95...William

Sweet. Part 95 was the first thing I looked for. Took me awhile to find out. Now for programming...hmmmm.

Most ham operators should be familiar with the amateur radio division of Vertex Standard Radio company.  They call themselves Yaesu.

 

Yaesu Musen Co. of Japan is the parent company of Yaesu/Standard/Horizon/Vertex.

That's not what TCB means.

 

TCB Information describes what class of product (following Part 15 scope) the tester is testing; testing procedure is different for differing product classes. The actual type acceptance certification is not granted by the TCB. The FCC grants this. At the very bottom of that page, the only type acceptance granted is for Part 90.
