    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Ive had two for about 3 years now and am very versed with this radio. The only weird thing i can find about it is the inability to delete a programmed memory channel. Yes i know it can be done with the software and I know its easy enough to program another frequency in the same memory slot, but does anyone have the keypad way to do it? p.s. no problem with deleting a memory from the program "bank"s, just want to completely remove it without using the software or programming over it.

I don't think is possible with Yaesu radios to delete a single channel. I own both the VX-150 and FT1500. Both of these radios have no way to delete a channel without programming a frequency over them. I like the Yaesu radios, but it is a drawback by not being complete this function. I have accidently stored a frequency in channel in the FT1500 in the mobile and that is just locked out, so can scan with radio.

Ok, thanks Larry I was wondering if it was just me. I dont have alot of Yaesu equipment but I did notice that the FT-7800 will let you completely wipe out a memory and these radios are close to the same vintage so i found it surprising the VX didnt have this feature.

Thanks 73's

I know this is an old thread, but I found another solution that will be useful to others (like myself) who have also encountered this problem.

You can "mask" the memory, as shown on page 38 of the VX-6R manual. "Masked" memories are not visible during memory selection or scanning. Later, if you decide to actually store a frequency in that memory slot, you can do so right on top of the masked memory as if it weren't there.
