By the way, with all the snipping and chatter on the VX-7R Yahoo group about "My Menu" not working, it isn't something that is "broken."
It turns out that the "My Menu" feature never made it to production. Instead, they put in a "toggle" on the configuration of the Internet key. In the default mode, it works with the WIRES protocol, as described. Now the fun starts.
If you turn the radio off, then press and hold in the Internet key while turning the radio on, you'll notice a "U" appearing along the left edge of the display while the big "VS" thing is displayed for a few seconds during switch on. In this case, the Internet key is configured for other Internet linking protocols, like IRLP. You program something into the DTMF Memory (TSQ/DCS/DTMF #8), then, during regular operation, you press the Internet key while you're talking. If, for example, your IRLP repeater requires you to send "#456" to link to node 456, you just program "#456" into a DTMF memory, then press the Internet key while you're pressing the PTT; basically, this is a "hot key" link to a DTMF Autodial Memory.
So the VX-7R really is a powerful Internet-access tool. . .more so than anybody thought.
Just thought you'd be interested.
