Compact, practical, rugged and reliable
The radio is lightweight (only 210g) slim (54 mm). And this doesn't come at the expense of construction: it meets or exceeds the stringent IP54 waterproof and dustproof standards and the MILSTD 810 C, D, E, F, and G environmental standards, making it rugged enough to survive in harsh weather. Outdoor use.
200 / channel, 6-bit memory name
TH-K20A has 200 memory channels—6-bit memory naming for clear identification—plus 6 program scan memories, 1 call channel, and a priority channel.
High sound pressure to ensure clear audio
Thanks to audio expertise. High sound pressure - different from the volume - delivers clear, unmistakable sound. Just listen once and you will sigh that it is so different.
Direct function key
Daily functions can be pre-programmed to 11 of the 12 keys. A custom function can be assigned to the remaining PF keys to make the TH-K20A easier to optimize. No need to use the menu: Press a button to access the relevant functions directly. Three key locks are also provided to prevent unintentional operation.
The TH-K20A can also be used for convenient hands-free operation using the optional headphones. The internal VOX (voice-activated transmission) circuit provides automatic PTT and 10-level (off/1-9) sensitivity adjustments for different ambient noise levels. The VOX delay can also be adjusted.
PC programming with MCP5A
Simply connect the TH-K20A to a computer running Kenwood Free Software MCP-5A with the optional PG-4Y cable to easily manage numerous memory channels and memory names. This is also a convenient way to modify or copy settings.
Backlit LCD and keyboard
The large 13-segment LCD display features a highly acclaimed backlight design that is convenient when choosing a memory name or changing settings. Similarly, the keyboard's backlight design makes it easier to operate in low lighting environments.
CTCSS and DCS encoder/decoder + audio function
Thanks to the built-in CTCSS (Continuous Audio Coded Squelch System) and DCS (Digital Code Squelch) encoder/decoder, the TH-K20A can handle 42 CTCSS sub-tone rates plus 104 DCS codes. At the same time, separate transmit and receive signaling can be set up to access a repeater that uses different encoding/decoding signaling.
When activated, this feature emits an audible alert tone and a flashing bell-shaped symbol prompts incoming calls. Both the elapsed time and the number of missed calls are clearly displayed.
