For clear, reliable communications indoors or out, rain or shine, there’s no beating Kenwood’s compact TK-2302/3302 transceiver. Based on a proven design, but refined and updated with enhanced features, it has the power and performance to satisfy even the toughest job requirements, due in part to the MIL-STD 810 & IP54/55 weather-proofing. A model of ergonomic excellence on the outside, inside it’s packed with such features as priority scan, built-in VOX and a voice scrambler. No wonder the smart new TK-2302/3302 is attracting such attention.
The rounded ergonomic contours of the TK-2302/3302 naturally provide a superbly comfortable hold, while the non-slip elastomer channel knob with improved torque characteristics and enlarged PTT button ensure a positive tactile response during operation.
TOUGH & WATERPROOF
Built tough to take rough treatment in its stride, the TK-2302/3302 has passed the demanding IP54/55 dust and water intrusion tests, both with and without the KMC-45 optional speaker microphone. It also meets or exceeds 11 stringent MIL-STD 810 C/D/E/F environmental standards, including “driven rain”. So whatever the weather, the TK-2302/3302 is ever ready for action.
ENHANCED AUDIO QUALITY
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 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.
The radio’s encoder/decoder function uses QT/DQT to segregate talk groups so you only hear calls from your own group. 5-TONE SIGNALLING (Encode only) The 5-tone encoder function can send 5-tone ID to another radio with 5-tone decode.
PROGRAMMABLE FUNCTION KEYS
The two PF Keys can be programmed for any of the many functions available on the TK-2302/3302, permitting a customized fit for your requirements.
The rotary and key controls on the radio can provide voice confirmation of radio status or operating mode, which is convenient when you are not able to look at the TK-2302/3302 – for example, if it’s in your pocket. English is the default language, but you can switch to French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Russian or Chinese.
INDEPENDENT SETTINGS PER CHANNEL
(VOX, COMPANDER, SCRAMBLER)
Radio channels can be programmed* independently for VOX, scrambler and compander functions. This means you can switch a function on or off simply by changing channels (on the same frequency).
The TK-2302/3302 provides ample capacity for operating with multiple channels or website systems.
BUILT-IN VOICE-INVERSION SCRAMBLER
The voice-inversion scrambler provides basic protection against casual eavesdropping.
Enjoy the convenience of hands-free operation using any optional headset. Offering a 10-level sensitivity adjustment, the internal VOX (voice-operated transmission) function automatically activates PTT when you start talking. This is great for specialized tasks or events that require hands-free, constant or repetitive communications.
