144/430MHz FM Dual Bander TH-F7E

Priority on Opening Ease

Simple operation is an essential component of this FM dual bander, and KENWOOD engineers have ensured that it can be operated effortlessly with one hand. Your attention is drawn to the easy-to-read LCD - equipped with both contrast control and backlight - displaying essential frequency and memory information, intuitive menus, and multi-level battery status. In monoband mode, the size of the frequency display is doubled for even greater visibility.

Multi-Scroll Key & 16-Key Pad

Operating ease is further enhanced with the multi-scroll key. Similar to the control found on some mobile phones, this can be rocked up & down, left & right with the thumb. Vertical operation controls frequency, while horizontal movement controls band selection. There is also a 16-key pad with keys that are ergonomically spaced and illuminated for night-time use.

434 Memory Channels, Multiple Scan Functions

Other specifications are equally impressive: 434 memory channels, including 2 call channels and another 20 for programmable scan. Additionally, the convenient Memory Name function allows you to register a name (with up to eight characters) for each channel. A complete range of scan functions is also provided - including MHz, memory, call, tone, CTCSS, and DCS, plus a variety of Visual Scanning features. Group scan mode covers 8 groups of 50 channels each. And you can choose between time-operated (TO) and carrier-operated (CO) busy-stop-resume (SE).

Multi-Band Transceiver(Main Band) + Wideband Receiver(Sub Band)

As polished as the user interface may be, it's what is inside that counts. And the TH-F7E counts twice over: it's both a 2-band transceiver (Main A band) and a wideband 0.1~1300MHz receiver (Sub B band). In addition to FM/FM-W/FM-N/AM and SSB/CW, the receiver section offers a special information memory channel RX mode (10 channels), built-in ferrite bar antenna1 for receiving AM broadcasts, and Fine mode - with selectable increment (33/100/500/1000Hz2) - for extra-accurate SSB tuning. What's more, this handheld transceiver can receive 2 frequencies simultaneously, even on the same band. Versatility is first rate.
1 Switchable with external antenna. 2 Increment figures are approximate.

Tough Construction

The smaller a transceiver, the farther it is likely to travel. Fortunately, the TH-F7E is built to take rough treatment in stride, satisfying the stringent MIL-STD 810 C/D/E standards for resistance to vibration, shock, humidity and light rain.

Lithium-Iron Battery

Equipped as standard is a powerful 7.4V 1550mAh lithium-ion battery, offering high output with selectable HI/LOW/EL settings. Remaining lithium-ion battery capacity can be easily checked on the LCD display as it is clearly shown in 4-step increments. And as the charging circuitry is built-in, the battery can be charged while the TH-F7E is operating from a DC (13.8V) supply.

Operation time: duty cycle @ 6-6-48 (hours)
