    I guess it depends on what ht you currently own as to how you view the new

    My VX-6 covers DC to daylight while transmitting on 4 bands.
    And it came with a higher capacity battery than the VX-8 as standard equipment so it offers nothing to me that I would ever need or want from an HT.

    VX Series

    I love the ruggedness and the functionality of my VX5R it has run flawlessly for about 6 years ... oh except for one minor inconvenience It will not turn on unless it's wall wart power connector is plugged into it. once its powered on the battery will run all day no problem. No one has been able to help me with this MINOR irritation.

    "otherwise I love it"

    I ordered one.....Was supposed to be shipped on the 15th of December.
    I do not think it is available from HRO and AES, although, they will take your order!!!
