FM Dual Bander   TM-G707A/E

From the extra-large control panel - with the welcoming glow of its amber-colored LCD - to Kenwood's new Easy Operation mode, the TM-G707A/E is extraordinarily user-friendly. That, after all, is a design imperative for mobile communications equipment. But this FM dual-band (2m/70cm) transceiver goes well beyond the call of duty, offering a "five-in-one" programmable memory, a Memory Name function, and numerous other features that make operation more natural than ever. Optimized convenience goes hand in hand with the polished performance of the TM-G707A/E.

TM-G707A/E in detail:

High-visibility display
Capable of displaying up to 7 large alphanumeric characters - in either frequency or Memory Name mode - the positive-type amber LCD comes with a 4-step dimmer control to suit all driving conditions, day or night. A thoughtful touch is the automatic brightening during operation.

Easy Operation mode
This mode allows the transceiver to be operated as easily as a car radio. You simply choose a frequency and press one of the 3 memory keys for one second to save it. A light touch on the same key is all that is required for recall, after which the encoder can be used to tune above or below that frequency.

"Five-in-one" programmable memory
In addition to its regular profile, the TM-G707A/E can store four other operating profiles - complete with frequency range, dimmer level, and other details - ready for instant recall at the push of a button. You can further choose automatic updating of the current profile if you wish.

180 multi-function memory channels
There is no shortage of capacity: 180 memory channels are available for storing such important data as transmit and receive frequencies (independently, thus allowing split-frequency operations), frequency step, and tone frequency.

Memory Name function
A convenience that is especially welcome for mobile applications is this function which, as its name suggests, allows you to identify each of the 180 channels with up to 7 alphanumeric characters. You can also switch instantly between the frequency and Memory Name displays.

Multi-scan functions
User-friendliness is further enhanced by full band and programme band scans, memory scan with memory channel lock-out, MHz scan and call scan. For each band there are TO (time-operated) and CO (carrier-operated) scan stop modes.

Priority scan function
Of special note is priority scan, available in two modes: choose mode A to check every 3 seconds, whether or not the displayed frequency is busy; or choose mode B to check at the same interval, but only when the displayed frequency is not busy.

Built-in CTCSS encoder/decoder
The CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) encoder/decoder enables operation of the 38 EIA-standard CTCSS subtone frequencies including tone scan.

6-pin mini DIN connector for 1200/9600bps packet
The front panel features a connector for hooking up to a TNC, enabling either standard 1200bps or 9600bps high-speed packet communications. This same connector can also be used for PC programming of the transceiver.

Quick-release detachable front panel kit (option)
If you are concerned about security, simply remove the compact front panel whenever your vehicle is left unattended. If one of the 3 optional quick-release kits is used, the panel can be mounted virtually anywhere since the microphone cable connects directly to the main unit.

Other Features:

CTCSS receive tone frequency display
