Kenwood THK20A Users will appreciate just how light (just 210 g) and thin (54mm) this radio is. Yet there is no compromise on construction: it meets or exceeds the stringent IP54 dust and water intrusion standards as well as the MILSTD 810 C, D, E, F & G environmental standards, making it rugged enough for demanding outdoor use in bad weather.
The TH-K20A/K40A has 200 memory channels – with a 6-digit Memory Name function to enable clear identification – plus 6 program scan memories, 1 call channel and 1 priority channel.
Audio Clarity Kenwood THK20A
Another feature that sets the TH-K20A/K40A apart is sound: it benefits from the audio expertise for which KENWOOD is renowned. High sound pressure – which is not the same as volume – delivers a clarity that is unmistakable. Just listen once and you will appreciate what a difference it makes.
Lion Battery Kenwood THK20A
This radio is supplied with a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery plus a convenient cradle charger.
Direct Function Keys
Everyday functions are pre-programmed to 11 of the 12 keys. The additional PF key can be assigned a custom function, making it possible to tailor the TH-K20A/K40A for optimum convenience. There is no need to use a menu: one key push provides direct access. And to prevent accidental operation, three types of key lock are provided.
The TH-K20A/K40A offers convenient hands-free operation when using an optional headset. The internal VOX (voice-operated transmission) circuitry provides automatic PTT and a 10-level (Off/1-9) sensitivity adjustment to suit different ambient noise levels. VOX delay time is also adjustable.
PC Programmable Kenwood THK20A
By simply connecting the TH-K20A/K40A to a computer running KENWOOD’s free MCP-5A software with the optional PG-4Y cable, one can easily manage dozens of memory channels and memory names. This is also a convenient way to modify or copy settings.
Backlit LCD and Keypad
Backlighting for the large 13-segment LCD display is a welcome feature when picking memory names or changing settings. Similarly, keypad backlighting facilitates operation in low-light situations.
CTCSS & DCS
Thanks to the built-in CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) and DCS (Digital Code Squelch) encoder/ decoder, the TH-K20A/K40A can handle 42 CTCSS sub-tone frequencies plus 104 DCS codes. And one can set separate TX and RX signalling types so as to access a repeater that uses different encode/decode signalling.
When activated, this function will sound an audible alert and flash a bell symbol to indicate an incoming call. Both elapsed time and the number of missed calls are clearly displayed.
