KENWOOD's new TK-7302/8302 delivers reliable mobile performance with extra wideband coverage (UHF: 70MHz) and such features as QT/DQT signaling, multiple scan functions and a voice inversion scrambler. Yet this tough IP54/MIL-STD-compliant radio is decidedly user-friendly, providing high-quality audio, voice announcement, and a large display with adjustable brightness for simple operation, day and night.
The TK-7302/8302 offers ample capacity for multiple channels and radio systems: 16 channels and 2 zones. And once it is programmed, users can select specific channels within a set range.
Clear 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 audio specialist experienced in psychoacoustics, 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 and with frequency response optimized for the human voice - is undeniably clearer and crisper.
A D-sub 15-pin terminal enables the simple connection of various types of external equipment. It can be used for Ignition sense, External Switch, Horn Alert, and External Mic, among others. A Molex interface is also available with the optional KCT-60M cable.
Encoder/decoder function uses QT/DQT to segregate talk groups, so users only hear calls from their own group. DTMF PTT ID is included for dispatch operations or for a simple remote control application.
Utilizing KENWOOD's FleetSync® signaling protocol, the TK-7302/8302 has PTT ID (ANI: automatic number identification) and Selective Calling capabilities for managed dispatch operations. Programmed Status(by FPU) can also be sent.
The 2-tone signaling format is provided for use with the most common radio systems.
Built-in MDC signaling means the following features are available:
- PTT ID Encode
- Emergency Encode
- Stun/Revive Decode
- Radio Check Decode
For hazardous/hostile duty environments, a PF key can be programmed for emergency use to alert the dispatcher or other group members via DTMF, FleetSync® or MDC-1200 signaling.
The built-in programmable voice inversion scrambler provides basic protection against casual eavesdropping. It is possible to have a unique scrambler setting for each channel by picking the voice inversion frequency from one of 16 tables.
The blue LED indicator can be customized to provide useful status information.
For example, it can be used in combination with the orange LED for Selective Call differentiation.
Connected to an external GPS receiver, the TK-7302/8302 can transmit accurate vehicle location data to the central base station for fleet management purposes. Designated scrambler and GPS modules can be installed internally.
