• Yaesu VX 8DR Radio Transceiver

    Up for sale is a used Yaesu vx-8dr. It does have some signs of wear, as you can see in the 3rd picture the paint is kind of worn off the power button. Also there is like a white substance right above were it says submersible.  It appears it rubbed up against something.  Also the long antenna does have a bit of a bend to it as you can see in the 7th photo.  With all that being said everything appears to work as it should.  I'm not super familiar with HAM radio but I did pick up stations at my house and also some radio stations.  I haven't transmitted anything with the radio because I do not have my license.  Everything you see in the photos is included with the sale.  If you have any questions please feel free to ask.  Happy bidding!
