Kenwood TM-D700A Full Dual Bander Radio

Kenwood continues to provide new and advanced APRS™ ham radio equipment by introducing the new TM-D700A mobile transceiver. For current owners of the TH-D7A handheld with built-in TNC and APRS™ software, the TM-D700A offers even more features and versatility. The TM-D700A is unlike any other dual-band mobile radio Kenwood has ever produced. The control head is detached and comes with remote cable for easy installation. The new radio also incorporates a 9-pin PC connection for easy hook-up to program frequencies and other APRS™ mapping programs. Your TM-D700A is a full dual-band operation radio so VHF+VHF/VHF+UHF/UHF+UHF operation is possible. Full digipeater functions allow anyone to set up a digipeater location wherever needed to help fill in APRS™ nationwide network. Internet gateway operation is also possible for world-wide text communication over VHF.
