The VX-6E is an ultra-rugged 144-430 MHz FM Hand-Held featuring wide receiver coverage, JIS7 submersibility, the Yaesu-exclusive Emergency Automatic Identification (EAI) system, and ultra-simple keyboard access to important features.

New on the VX-6E is the One-Touch Direct Memory Recall feature, that allows you to recall ten favorite memories with a single button press, just like on your car stereo.

The VX-6E comes equipped with three powerful emergency features:

EAI Feature: Ideal for Outdoor Operation!: The EAI feature lets you and your support team configure your radios so that, in the event of a climbing or hiking accident that leaves one of you incapacitated, someone else can command your VX-6R/E to transmit without you pressing the PTT, allowing the others to use your signal to perform direction finding and effect a rescue.

Emergency Feature: An "Emergency" function is also provided that will transmit your Callsign on the UHF Home Channel, while simultaneously flashing the CW ID in bright white light on the transceiver's LED and beeping the CW ID loudly from the speaker.

Ultra-Bright Emergency Flashing LED: In an emergency, the transceiver’s LED may be engaged continuously in its "Bright White" mode, instead of the usual red or green color, and may be used as a signal lamp or flashlight.
