PBEM has eleven Yaesu VX-170 VHF transceivers available for NET volunteers to check out if they cannot afford their own radio (or if they want to try the radio out). Radios are checked out over three months; at the end of the three month period, the borrower must return the radio (if there is a waitlist for borrowing) or renew the check out.
Checking out a radio is free, but you must arrange pick up from PBEM and be ready to show your ARRL technician license when you pick it up. Each radio includes a charger and instruction booklet. The instruction booklet is also downloadable.
The table below indicates which radios are available and when they are due for return to PBEM. If you would like to check one out, please email the NET Coordinator to arrange pick up.
