A memory management program for the Yaesu VX-8 and VX-8D Japanese model handheld transceiver. For non-Japanese models of the VX-8 please use FTBVX8.

I would like to express my thanks to JA1OGS (VK4GO) and JE1WVQ (WS6J) who have made the development of the Japanese version of FTBVX8 possible. Without their help and support this program would not have been written.
