FreeTalk XLS


Kenwood�s new FreeTalk� XLS is elegantly compact, yet offering 15 channels, 38 QT talk groups, 83 DQT talk groups, and all the features you need to keep in touch with friends and family. Take it on your next trip, whether you�re hiking and camping, or simply exploring a new shopping mall. The controls are superbly simple. You can even clip the radio to your belt and use a headset (option) for hands-free VOX operation. Truly exceptional. FreeTalk� � from KENWOOD.

15 channels, 38 QT talk groups & 83 DQT talk groups
The FreeTalk� offers no fewer than 15 channels, of which 1-7 are compatible with FreeTalk� FRS radios. QT (Quiet Talk) means that you hear only calls with the specified talk group tone (38 for QT) or code (83 for DQT), eliminating unwanted interference from others using the same channel. And to check for voice activity on different channels and talk groups, there�s a handy scan function.

Compact, durable design & simplified controls
Weighing just 7oz (200g) with the rechargeable battery, the FreeTalk� is light as well as ergonomically designed to fit into the palm of your hand. The tough polycarbonate case ensures that it�s able to withstand the rigors of outdoor use. And to make operation as simple as possible, the control buttons have been reduced to PTT, MON, MENU, CALL, UP and DOWN.

4-digit 7-segment LCD with backlightLCD
The distinctive display is extra large, making it easy to check on both channel and signaling information � even in the dark, thanks to backlighting. A 3-level icon in the LCD shows you how much battery power is left, while a separate 2-color LED indicates red for transmit and green for an active channel.

Privacy Talk�
Privacy Talk� scrambles the transmitted signal to keep your conversations confidential.

Includes 10-hour battery pack, desktop charger and more
You can enjoy up to 10 hours* (approx.) of use with the supplied Ni-MH rechargeable battery. When you get home just slip it into the desktop charger. And if you�re planning to spend a few days away, no problem: the FreeTalk� will run off a pack of 3 AA alkaline batteries. In addition to there being a battery save feature, you can conserve power by switching output from 1 watt to 500mW (per radio). A belt clip is also supplied.
