Vertex Standard VX-459 At-A-Glance

The Vertex VX-459 two way radio has it all!  This rugged little radio is a close cousin to the VX-451 and VX-454, but in addition to all the same features, the VX-459 has 9 programmable keys, an 8 character display, and a full 16-key keypad.

Like its cousins, the Vertex VX-459 twoway radio is submersible (up to 3 ft for 30 minutes) and weatherproof.  There are several worker safety features, extra audio volume for noisy environments, and whisper mode for quite locations.  The VX-459 has the Channel Announce feature that clearly speaks the channel description to simplify changing channels while focused on other tasks.  It has numerous scan options (priority, dual watch, follow-me, 32 scan list, talk around).   The VX-459 includes Voice Inversion Encryption, over-the-air Stun / Kill / Revive to disable a lost or stolen radio, Emergency notification, and the Lone Worker mode.   You can add the optional DVS-5 Voice Storage unit to record and store up to 120 seconds of messages.

Choose your battery from either the standard battery that gives approximately 9 hours of operating time when used under normal conditions (5% TX, 5% RX, 90% standby). Or choose the high capacity battery which gives approximately 15 hours of operating time.
