Kenwood TH-D7™ Data Communicator / FM-Dual Band Radio

Kenwood's new TH-D7AG is equipped with a TNC and provides the Ham radio enthusiast with a wide range of data communications options. As well as simple packet operation using the AX.25 protocol, there's APRS (Automatic Packet/ Position Reporting System), which is rapidly gaining popularity world-wide for the transmission of positional data and messages.  


  • APRS (Automatic Packet/Position Reporting System)
    Using APRS, the TH-D7AG lets you transmit your co-ordinates to a friend, who can then pinpoint your position using a map on a computer. APRS software has been developed for a variety of platforms; however, what makes the Data Communicator so special is that it enables APRS operation without requiring a computer. And when you receive your friend's positional data, you can display latitude/longitude, direction and distance on your own Data Communicator.
  • Positional/directional data
     Just hook up to a GPS receiver and you can transmit your position for automatic calculation of distance, current speed and heading with icons, short comments or fixed messages. Manual input of latitude/longitude is also permitted.
  • Versatile massaging
    Transmit alpha messages (up to 45 characters) and bulletins. Alternatively, shorts comments (up to 20 characters) and fixed massages (8 patterns) can be sent together with your positional data.
  • Station list
    Store received APRS data in up to 40 memory channels.
  • Grid square locator display
  • TX interval (0,5/1/2/3/5/10/20/30 min.)
  • Packed pass selection for DigiPeat
  • Weather station, Power Height Gain data (fixed stations) & Object data reception
  • Text superimpose function
    Add your call sigh, RSV reports, messages (Eight text colors available).
  • VC shutter
    You can control a connected Visual Communicator (VC-H1) from your Data Communicator to initiate transmission
  • Fast FM
    This high-speed transmission mode lets you send an image in 14 secs (approx.).
  • SSTV transmission mode selection (9 modes)
    You can use any of the 8 standard SSTv modes, in addition to Fast FM.
  • Dual receive for voice & image transmissions (VHF only)
    As well as allowing you to enjoy both APRS and SSTV (with Kenwood's VC-H1), the TH-D7E is fully equipped to provide the performance and features you would expect of the latest generation of dual-band transceivers.
