Memory channels can have an eight-character alpha-numeric label appended to them, for easy channel recognition. CTCSS and DCS Encoder/Decoder Circuits Built In. The VX-5R includes a wide variety of tone encoding and decoding systems for today's active Ham.Included are a 39-tone CTCSS Encoder/Decoder, a 104-Code DCS (Digital Code Squelch) Encoder/Decoder, a Menu-driven 1750-Hz Tone Burst system for European repeaters, Tone Search, in case you don't know the access tone required for the repeater you're on, and a nine-memory DTMF Autodialer, for autopatch or Internet-linking access. The VX-5R provides flexible scanning, including scan halt options of "Carrier Drop, " "5-second Pause, " and "Stop" (no resumption of scanning). The VX-5R may be instructed to scan the VFOs, the Memories, or a portion of the VFO range, and the LCD's illumination can be programmed to light up when scanning halts.
