Kenwood Commercial Radios to Amateur Bands

Post by VE3AHV » Sun Jan 17, 2010 9:30 pm

I have just picked up a large assortment of Kenwood commercial radios and was curious if anyone has any experience with them on 2 meters. I have TK-706, TK-710, TK-762H, TK-762HG and TK-7102H radios that are all type 1. I wanted to keep 1 for my own use and sell the rest. So is any 1 of these better suited than the others for 2 meters.

Dave -

The TK-762H, TK-762HG and TK-7102H radios will go to 2 meters just by programming. Not sure what a TK-706 is.

The TK-710 requires a KPT-20 programmer and can go to 2 meters with proper tuning / alignmnet / programming.
