high gain ant. for a tk 290

Post by azFIREguy » Mon Feb 13, 2006 12:47 am

I don't have a kenwood dealer anywhere close. Where might I get this antenna at, also if you have the part number too that would be great. Thanks.

Check http://www.waltel.com

Jeff has an aftermarket gain antenna that's great -- I think it's Centurion. I have one for my work HT1250 and my personal MRKII -- they make a significant improvement for me for reasonable cost. Should have Kenwood's connector...

Help

I asked the same question in on January 6 and no one could help! If you find a gain antenna for Kenwood Radios I would like to know. I have a TK-250 that is about bomb-proof, but I would like to get a bigger antenna - I don't want to sell out and get a Bendix-King.

Followed the previous link, but did not see any?

OK - they have what I was looking for at antenex - A unity 1/4 wave antenna 21" long.

What antenna connection does a tk 250 have?

What radio do the following antenna connections fit?
BN
KR
MX
PL

MX Connector

Post by sargeek » Fri Feb 17, 2006 6:04 pm

OK so I have my radio (TK-250) infront of me and I would think its an MX connector for the antenna? And is it the same connector for a TK-2140?
