If you have a vx-7 europe version here is how to modify.
- Remove the battery pack.
- Remove the sticker/cover seal for the pressure sensing unit (SU-1), in the battery compartment. This is the black strip above cellular warning label and is where the SU-1 option goes.
- Locate row of eight jumpers. They are numbered.
- For Freeband, remove(Unsolder) all solder jumper exept 3
- Reset the transceiver by holding down MON/F + HM/RV + Internet Key and power up the transceiver
This will display the Vertex Standard logo instead of Yaesu. Bear in mind that resetting the transceiver by holding down 4 + BAND + V/M and powering up the transceiver WON’T work!
Freeband: 40-224.995Mhz and 300-579.995Mhz
