Kenwood TM-D700A Dual Band Radio

The advanced Kenwood TM-D700A dual bander allows you to harness APRS, GPS and SSTV technologies to provide world class communications. The new-generation mobile transceiver features a built-in TNC to offer a wide range of data communications options including simple packet operation using the AX.25 protocol. But above all the TM-D700A is fully equipped to make the most of APRS - Automatic Packet/Position Reporting System. And it can employeed as part of Kenwood’s Skycommand System II+ when used with the TS-2000 series. You will also enjoy wideband receive 118 MHz to 1.3 GHz (cellular blocked). This radio includes the MC-53DM DTMF backlit hand mic.

Terminal Interfaces:  TNC AX.25 Level 2, Version 2, RS232C (9600/19200/38400/57600 bps), and GPS NMEA:  RS-422 (4800 BPS), NMEA 96 RS232C (9600 BPS).
