Default Yupiteru MVT-8000

Hi, does anyone know if the mvt-8000 is the same scanner as the mvt-7100 only a desktop? I am trying to figure out where in the hierarchy this unit falls. I know there was a mvt-7000, 7100 & a 9000. I just picked it up in mint condition on ebay and can't wait to get t. It looks really cool.

Thanks, Rick

MVT-7000 according to the Radio Reference Wiki - that is one cool looking radio! Best of luck with your new toy.

Thanks Bob, It sure is a cool looking radio! This will be my first desktop scanner, I used to have a mvt-9000 and regretted selling it. I look forward to having this in my collection. I will post some pics when I get it.

IIRC it's not >quite< the same as the 7100 handheld - for one I don't remember it having SSB. Mine is out on long term loan to a friend so I can't do a side to side comparison for you though.

Yupiteru numbering isn't sequential as the 3100, 3300 and 3400 are newer than the more common 7000, 7100 and 9000 HHs

In terms of the mobile/desktops the 8000 came after the 6000.

Ok, it should be a decent scanner though. I bought it for the cool and rare factor. It should be collectable. Can't wait to get it and try it.

Thumbs up Yupiteru

Nice radio and a very cool design. Once had a 7100, hand held. Nice radio but the internal battery charging circuit went out. Sent it out to Japan and of all days, received it repaired and delivered by U.S Postal service. Now, that was a cool Christmas gift!

What ever happened to them?? They still in business??

Good Signals,

Ed

Hi Ed,

I'll bet that 7100 was cool. I once had a 9000. I think they went out of business at least 5 years ago, maybe more. It's to bad. They made great radio's.

Darn sure was. I really hated to see Regency-now Relm Wireless-exit the scanner market. Never was crazy about Uniden, really liked the older stuff. Suppose I'll stick with AOR, had a Icom R20 but ditched it as it drove me crazy trying to program and use it. Just a what if, but wouldn't it be neat if Watkins Johnson or other high end electronics manufacturer introduced receivers to the hobbyist market??? And you had the mega bucks to buy one??? Here I am, still playing with 70's crystal controlled receivers.

Very cool looking radio. I have a 3300 and 7100 and love both of them. They may not trunk or do fancy stuff, but they are very sensitive and fairly easy to program. Best of luck and happy scanning!

Bob
