PMR446 FM Portable Transceiver tk-3301

Robust and water-resistant

With its light yet strong aluminium die-cast chassis, the TK-3301 is built to survive hard knocks and drops. And thanks to its sealed case, it offers reliable performance in severe weather and environments.
Even with the KMC-45 optional speaker microphone connected* it satisfies or exceeds the stringent IP54/55 dust and water intrusion standards, as well as the US MIL-STD 810 C, D, E & F environmental standards.

*Requires locking bracket.

Enhanced audio

Clear, crisp audio means confident communications, but
power output is not the only factor that determines how easy
it is to use a radio in varying noisy environments. As an
experienced audio specialist, KENWOOD can draw on decades
of expertise at every step: component selection, construction,
optimization, evaluation and analysis. The resulting audio
performance, specially engineered for transceivers, is
undeniably clearer and crisper. Just listen to the difference.

16 channels

The TK-3301 offers ample capacity for multiple channels or
radio systems.

Built-in voice-inversion scrambler

The voice-inversion scrambler provides basic protection against
casual eavesdropping.

VOX ready

The TK-3301 offers the convenience of hands-free
operation using any supported headset. The internal VOX
( voice-operated transmission ) circuitry provides automatic PTT
with a 10-level sensitivity adjustment for different ambient
noise levels.


As it’s possible to pick frequency and QT/DQT channel settings,
the ProTalk® Series can operate on the same channels with
the same coded squelch tones as other business radio brands.
So purchasing the TK-3301 will not impact on any previous
investments in radio equipment.

Voice annunciation

The rotary and key controls have been designed to provide
voice-announcement – handy when the radio is carried out of
sight, as in a pocket. A voice announces the radio status or
mode whenever you operate the TK-3301. English is the
default language, but you can switch to French, Spanish,
German, Italian or Dutch.

Independent setting per channel

The VOX, scrambler and compander functions can be
dealer-programmed separately for each channel. This means,
for example, that you can easily switch a function on or off by
selecting another channel programmed for the same frequency.

QT/DQT encoder/decoder

The radio's encoder/decoder function uses QT/DQT to
segregate talk groups so you only hear calls from your own
group. You can pick any of 38 stored settings – 26 QT
tones and 12 DQT codes (plus Off) – which are compatible
with the TK-3201.

Talk range of 6.4km (4 miles)

The TK-3301 delivers 0.5 watts of power, enabling direct
radio-to-radio communication on the same frequency
(simplex) for up to 6.4km.

Operating range

Open locations (no obstructions) Up to 6.4km (4 miles)
Residential areas (near buildings) Up to 2.4km (1.5 miles)
In steel-reinforced concrete buildings Up to 18,580m2 (200,000ft2)
In high-rise buildings Up to 15 floors
Operating range will vary based on terrain and other conditions.

Self programming

You can select channel frequencies, QT/DQT tones and key
assignments using table lists. In channel setup mode, each
channel can be reprogrammed with different frequencies and
QT/DQT settings; in key assignment mode, the PF1 and PF2
keys can be reprogrammed for different functions; and in
channel confirmation mode, settings can be confirmed by voice.
