Kenwood employed premium industrial design concepts to make the
TK-2180/3180 portables functionally practical, rugged and an
attractive piece of equipment to carry.
Kenwood utilizes its longstanding audio heritage to optimize voice
frequency components so that the audio
output cuts through typical ambient noise. This enhancement and the
companded noise reduction provide
clarity and low distortion especially on narrow bandwidth systems.
The built-in voice inversion scrambler provides basic communications
protection against casual eavesdropping.
The TK-2180/3180 offers convenient hands-free operation with a
compatible headset. The TK-2180/3180 internal
VOX (voice-operated transmission) circuitry provides automatic PTT
and a 10-level sensitivity adjustment for different ambient noise
The TK-2180/3180 is built to survive the hard knocks, drops and all
weather environments of its users. It meets or exceeds the stringent
IP54/55 dust and water intrusion standards and the MIL-STD 810 C,
D,E & F environmental standards including the demanding �driven
CONVENTIONAL & LTR� TRUNKING ZONES
The TK-2180/3180 operates on LTR� trunking systems, conventional
channels or any combination of both, facilitating mixed operation
today or migration tomorrow.
FleetSync� & FleetSync� II
Kenwood�s FleetSync� digital signaling system includes PTT ID
digital ANI for instant radio call identification and Emergency
status for personnel safety. FleetSync also includes status
messaging, selective calling and short/long text dispatch messaging
features. The TK-2180/3180 supports either original FleetSync� or
*FleetSync and FleetSync II are incompatible.
DUAL PRIORITY & SCAN FEATURES
Dual-Priority Scan automatically checks two important channels for
activity while channel scanning (conventional zones only). Also,
each radio can be programmed to scan through any organization of
channels, systems and talk groups using the many programmable scan
features and parameters. Channel/GID Delete/Add, Nuisance Delete and
Priority Temporary Delete provide relief from non-essential voice
traffic when scanning multiple channels or trunked talk groups.
The TK-2180/3180 includes industry standard signaling formats for
the most common type radio systems.
- QT/DQT: Sub-audible QT tones and DQT digital codes provide
industry standard talk group muting and segregation for
conventional radio systems.
- DTMF: DTMF permits DTMF PTT ID, telephone interconnect
operation, individual/group selective calling and remote radio
disable/enable (remote stun).
- 2-Tone Selective Calling: Four code pairs each with
individual and group page settings and audio visual alerts can
be assigned per channel.
VGS-1 VOICE GUIDE & STORAGE UNIT
This innovative Kenwood option makes several functions possible.
��Voice Guide�� announces zone, channel, groups and feature
activation/deactivation in a clear synthesized voice. A great tool
for radio communications training or as an aid for the sight or
physically impaired. ��Voice Storage�� records up to 300 seconds of
receive audio for missed calls or your own voice for memo recording.
It also can transmit an ��Auto-Reply�� greeting and record voice
messages for unattended radios while away from the radio or while in
a meeting (the calling unit must send a FleetSync� selective call
