  Someone in my area just got a VX-8R.

  It is the first time I have seen one, and so there is much to
  learn about the Yaesu menu system.  I only got to hold it for an
  hour or so while it was loaned to me, before the owner wanted it
  back, so I did not get a chance to try everything...

  The one thing that is new that I noticed was that it has a full
  180 symbols and displays a very large number of them.

  So far, I have not been able to figure out how to set Voice
  Alert (CTCSS 100 on the APRS channel), so that I could be
  available for PL-100 voice calls, while not having to hear all
  the packet racket.

  Also, Another person called me and could not find the pin-out of
  the serial port for use of the internal TNC with a PC.  Has
  anyone decoded that info yet?

  Bob, Wb4APR
