Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS™)

Always know your connection status. Only Vertex Standard radios are designed to inform you when you and another ARTS™-equipped radio are within communication range. If out of range, your radio senses no signal has been received and beeps to alert you. A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.

FCC Narrowbanding Compliant

Meets the FCC Part 90 requirement for using 12.5 kHz channels by January 1, 2013.

More Scanning Options

Get 4 scanning options for convenience and flexibility in the way you need your radios to perform. Includes: Priority, Dual Watch, Follow Me and Talk Around scan.

Safety Features Not Sacrificed

As with all Vertex Standard portable radios, the VX-231 includes both Emergency and Lone Worker alert functions to help monitor user safety. The Emergency alert can be programmed to instantly notify help with a press of the button.  The Lone Worker mode is a built-in timer that requires the user to reset at a predetermined interval. If not reset, the radio automatically switches to Emergency mode to alert help. Allows supervisors to monitor the safety status of radio users working alone in isolated areas.
