Even at first glance, it's obvious that Kenwood's stylish new TH-K2AT is in a class of its own. Though compact enough to fit snugly in either pocket or palm, it offers all the features necessary to make operation simple and sure. And despite its smart looks, this144MHz FM transceiver is 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 navy-blue TH-K2AT 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.
There are up to 100 memory channels available, or 50 if you use memory names (up to 6 alphanumeric characters to identify a channel).
In addition to reception of the NOAA Weather Radio, this transceiver can warn you with an audible alert to emergency transmissions such as storm warnings.
As well as CTCSS (42 sub-audible tone frequencies) and DCS (104 codes), the TH-K2AT offers a 1750Hz tone burst.
Convenient hand-free operation is possible when used with the optional KHS-21 headset.
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.
The large 13-segment LCD display with backlighting ensures excellent visibility when using memory names or choosing settings.
In addition to offering both battery-powered and 13.8V DC operation, the TH-K2AT can be used during battery-charging. Moreover, charging is faster than the previous models.
Backlighting now makes key operation easy in low-light situations.
Shortened for easier carrying, the 4-inch antenna still offers high gain.
Speaker output has been more than doubled to 400mW, ensuring clearer communications even in noisy environments.
