UHF stubby antenna
With Belt Clip
The MVT-7100 kept Yupiteru ahead of the field when it came to high performance, wide band scanning receivers for many years. Until the arrival of the AOR AR8000 no other receiver offered the coverage, features and performance that the MVT-7100. Although Yupiteru have introduced more recent models (MVT-7200 & MVT-9000) many still say that even though the MVT-7100 lacks some of the more “fancy” features it still leads in receiving performance.
Full, continuous coverage from 530khz ~ 1650MHz. Any mode from AM, Narrow FM, Wide FM together with Upper & Lower sideband. Increment steps vary from 1kHz up to 100kHz although when LSB or USB is selected then increment steps as small as 100 or 50Hz can be used allowing for true and accurate tuning of utility stations.
The 7100 has a list of features that are the envy of most other hand held units. Not only does this unit perform beyond belief on the HF/SSB bands but it is also one, if not the top handheld for sensitivity on the VHF/UHF bands. Many owners have been surprised to find that the ‘7100 has matched or in some cases exceeded the performance of such scanners as the Icom R7000 & AR3000.
The MVT-7100 scans at sprightly 30 channels a second, fast enough to keep up with all the action, and with 1000 channels that can mean a considerable amount! If you have a mix of frequencies in different modes and you just want to scan the airband frequencies (AM) you can even tell the MVT-7100 just to Scan those channels that have frequencies stored in AM mode. This saves you having to “lockout” all the channels in other modes.
10 Search banks are also provided into which the user can program upper & lower limits to search between in any chosen mode & increment step. Individual memory channels can be “locked out” if desired as can up to 500 individual frequencies that when searching may cause the scanner to stop if they contain Data or interference.
Whilst many handhelds now have an attenuator to reduce the level of interference on certain frequencies this can usually only be turned on or off effecting all channels. The MVT-7100 has an attenuator that can be switched on or off for each individual channel.
The clear LCD display shows the Frequency, Mode, Increment Step, Channel number together with any facilities in use and a 8 segment Signal Strength meter. The backlight not only illuminates the LCD screen but the keypad as well
