Did this video help you?

VideosByDPF: Great video! very informative! ROCK OF THE MARNE! 3rd ID 1987-1990 (Schweinfurt , Germany) Seems retarded that Yaesu didn't include the GPS in the VX-8DR..... Must be a money grabbing scheme. Have you given thought to getting either the FT-1DR or FT-2DR?

User64ish: What is the extender and antenna you are using here please ?

chevypowertogo: is the Keypad Backlit on the VX-8G? I Didnt See it Lightup? Only on the 8DR?

Also on The VX-7R it Seems you also know about,//=So i want to Ask You if the VX-7R Is KeyPad Backlit?

Also Whats the Ups and Down Sides to Buying a VX-7R Over either of 2 You have Here?

Thank you Vary much in Advance :-)

Don Gayan Amarasinghe: Thanks for sharing information. This is helpful!

Mysh PD: i am now convinced to have one vx-8dr...

SteelWolf13: keep cutting parts of the vid off up top.

Wild TreeFrog: Can you tell me what type connector you used for the Antenna connection? Also, are you using RG-58 50 Ohm Antenna Wire? Which Extended Range Antenna did you use? I have the VX-8DR with the MODS. I really like the VX-8DR because of the added Band Selection. Much appreciated. KC1EVN.

Joseph Framo: thank you for your presentation you finally convinced me I need to get one today happy new year

Rob Fern: what antennas is that you have with it? I am thinking of adding this HT to my fleet. Thanks! Go Army!

Dee Dubbs: Hire a better wardrobe designer.

SHTF way of life: VX 8GR was discontinued. Built-in GPS is never good. If the government is against you if the radio tender useless. One would have to throw it in the trash.

Harshan Perera: Can you do an video of what kind of communication devices and what products to use on disaster scenario. what would you recommend to keep in Bugy bag for a family?

Stan Vizina: Took you 2:30 to say the DR was more submersible.  I can type it 28 times faster than that.

Wuety06: ugh why no internal gps, come on yaesu step it up! also did that out of band require removing surface mount components? i know the new icom does...which is weird because baofengs come unlocked and u think for $400+ they could have made a software unlock. If icom would plop in the 2 extra bands or yaeu would throw the damn gps in i would feel comfortable droping $400-500 on a hand held but i think until the next gen ill stick with the $40 baofeng 

BlackWater SF: You must really be in the military you sound alil board and that damn carpet and chair look like something they would use

Richard A. Allcorn: Great video ... it covered operations and general features.  I saw on GPS module (mic mounted or otherwise) in the video, and most of the time I could not see the display of the VX8dr due to glare. 

toppyjai: Sweet Grey Ghost bag!  Thanks for uploading the video review... good stuff!

tullyman82: Can you change modes USB or SSB on the Vx-8DR. I found NFM and AM just wondering. Thanks.

dano crenshaw: I have the vx-8dr and when you push the battery on the back of the radio it makes a clicking noise I think I know what is making the noise I wanted to check if yall have the same problem I think it is the clips that lock in the battery cause you have to push down the battery and pull the clips down

TJack Survival: I spy with my little eye a GREY GHOST PATCH! Outstanding. Where did you get that from? Are you local to Utah?

LBS TRIBUTES: could you upload all west tigers games from 2005?
Kraugher: Thanks Bob, I was pretty sure I'd look through your list. Your guys do pretty good work from the looks of it. Am I the only one that finds the workmanship and techniques in a lot (not all) of the "how to" metal roofing videos on here to be rather appalling? Some of the most watched and most liked ones are the worst examples too.
Kyrie Irving: Ovvy's brother?
arktana: hi, thanks for that video!
is it good for daily removing of eye makeup ? and does is dry your skin at all?
 

Rasmus Kastrupsen: Hi TJ..
Jacob Poucher: This is a "meat and potatos" TNP video, triple owl on the shed here keeping it real.
