Description :

The Kenwood TH-D74 is compatible with D-STAR, the amateur radio communications network that has both voice and data modes. Both local and international communications are possible through diverse operations including simplex communications, single repeater relay communications and inter-repeater gateway communications. The radio its also compatible with the APRS communication protocol, which allows real-time two-way data transmission by using packet communications, including sharing of local and GPS positional information and message exchange. This transceiver provides 7 types of scans: Band Scan, scans all frequencies on the current band. Memory Scan, scans all frequencies stored in the Memory channels. Group Link Scan, scans memory channel in the plural memory groups registered in the group link list. Program Scan, scans all frequencies within the programmed range. MHz Scan, scans all frequencies within a 1 MHz range from the originating frequency. Call Scan, scans the Call channel as well as the currently selected VFO frequency or Memory channel. Priority Scan, checks the Priority Channel every 3 seconds. Other features:

  • Dual Receive, VHF-UHF / VHF-VHF or UHF-UHF.

  • Built-in Ferrite Bar Antenna suitable for receiving LF/MW and low-HF bands.

  • 9/10 KHz tuning step on MW Band.

  • 8.33 KHz tuning step on VHF Air Band.

  • 20Hz fine tuning for CW/SSB.

  • The selectable repeater offset direction allows your transmit frequency to be higher or lower than the receive frequency.

  • Built-in Packet TNC, 1200/9600 bps.

  • Cross Tone, You can set separate signaling types by TX and RX for when you access a repeater that uses different encode/decode signaling.

  • 10 channels DTMF Memory, 16 digits.

  • RF attenuator.

  • Colour TFT display that offers excellent visibility in day or night.

  • Easily understandable pop-up screens.

  • Two Programmable Function Keys.

  • Built-in GPS and Bluetooth.

  • IF / Detect output.

  • Beat Shift, since the transceiver uses a CPU the clock oscillator's harmonics may appear on some spots of the reception frequencies. You can select a Beat Shift setting which does not cause interference.

  • TX and RX Audio Recording with microSD/SDHC card.

  • Tough weatherproofing meeting IP54/55 standards.
