  • 33: User Port - unknown use
  • 34: Narrow AM - enables or disables the narrow AM filter, which helps reduce adjacent HF signals

To enable these SET menu items, follow this procedure:

  1. Power off the VR-500.
  2. Press the 0, 3, 5, and 9 keys simultaneously, and then power on the VR-500 while still holding those keys.

When Narrow AM is enabled, you'll see NAM on the display when switching to AM mode.
