VHF (FM 2m)
Even at first glance, it is obvious that Kenwood\'s stylish new TH-K20 are in a class of their own. Though compact enough to fit snugly in either pocket or palm, they offer all the features necessary to make operation simple and sure. And despite their smart looks, these 144 and 430 MHz FM transceivers are tough enough to survive the rigors of outdoor use, while delivering superb performance. So roam freely while enjoying the clear, reliable communications for which Kenwood is renowned.
In sharp contrast to other transceivers in this class, the smart TH-K20 is sophisticated inside and stylish outside.
By specifying a priority channel for scanning, you can be ready to receive on either of two different frequencies. Among the many other scan functions are VFO, MR, call, tone, CTCSS, DCS and program.
6-CHARACTER MEMORY NAMES
There are up to 100 memory channels available, or 50 if you use memory names (up to 6 alphanumeric characters to identify a channel).
BUILT-IN CTCSS, DCS
As well as CTCSS (42 sub-audible tone frequencies) and DCS (104 codes), the TH-K20 offers a 1750Hz tone burst.
Convenient hand-free operation is possible when used with the optional KHS-21 headset.
HIGH-CAPACITY Ni-MH BATTERY
Supplied as standard is the environmentally friendly PB-43N Ni-MH battery, offering higher capacity than a Ni-Cd battery. In high-power mode RF output is an impressive 5W.
LARGE BACKLIT LCD
The large 13-segment LCD display with backlighting ensures excellent visibility when using memory names or choosing settings.
Handling multiple memory channels and memory names is easy from a PC (requires optional PG-4Y interface cable and free MCP-1A software). This is also convenient for copying settings to another transceiver.
In addition to offering both battery-powered and 13.8V DC operation, the TH-K20E(ET)/K40E can be used during battery-charging. Moreover, charging is faster than the previous model.
BACKLIT FRONT KEYPAD
Backlighting now makes key operation easy in low-light situations.
LARGE SPEAKER, LOUD AUDIO
Speaker output has been more than doubled to 400mW, ensuring clearer communications even in noisy environments.
RUGGEDIZED WEATHERPROFF CONSTRUCTION
This transceiver is built tough to meet the stringent MIL-STD 810 C/D/E/F standards for resistance to rain, vibration, shock and humidity. It also meets the international IP54 standard for dust and water resistance.
