WIDE BAND OPERATION
The TK-7180/8180 models feature wide band UHF (70 MHz) and VHF (38 MHz)
coverage in one radio model.
Kenwood employed premium industrial design concepts to make the TK-7180/8180
mobiles functionally practical, rugged and attractive whether vehicle or
CHANNELS /128 ZONES
The large 512 channel / 128 zone capability* accommodates virtually any
current or future capacity requirement for single or multiple site radio
Maximum capacity notes*
128 Conventional & LTR Zones cumulative maximum per radio
512 Conventional Channels & Group ID's (GID's) cumulative maximum per radio
250 Channels maximum per any Conventional Zone
250 GID's maximum per any LTR Zone
DOT-MATRIX DISPLAY WITH ICONS
The backlighting and high-resolution dot matrix 12-character alphanumeric
display provides easy-to-read channel aliases day or night. Also a 3-digit
sub-display for zone/channel/group ID numbers and icons for function/status
indicators make for intuitive operation.
The built-in voice inversion scrambler provides basic protection against
ENHANCED KENWOOD AUDIO
Kenwood utilizes its long standing 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.
FleetSync� GPS READY
The TK-7180/8180 has connection ports (internal or external) for GPS
receiver units with a standard NMEA- 0183 data output. This enables a
FleetSync-compatible AVL system to track a fleet of TK-7180/8180 mobiles.
REMOTE CONTROL HEAD
The KRK-10 remote kit converts the front panel into a space saving remote
control head for today�s smaller vehicles and console mounting.
ROBUST & RELIABLE
The TK-7180/8180 is built to survive the hard knocks and harsh all weather
environments of many type mobile installations. These mobiles meet or exceed
the stringent the MIL-STD 810 C, D, E & F environmental standards including
the demanding �driven rain� test.
CONVENTIONAL & LTR�
The TK-7180/8180 operates on LTR� trunking systems, conventional channels or
any combination of both, facilitating mixed operation today or migration
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-7180/8180 supports
either original FleetSync� or FleetSync�II*.
*FleetSync and FleetSync II are incompatible.
DUAL PRIORITY & SCAN
Dual-Priority Scan automatically checks two important channels for activity
while channel scanning (conventional zones only). Also, each radio can be
programmed to scan 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
VGS-1 VOICE GUIDE &
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 for
activation). The VGS-1 can be used to store FleetSync� GPS AVL data*.
* Voice functions are not available when the VGS-1 is used for FleetSync GPS
EASY OPTION PORT
Kenwood�s plug-in option port makes the VGS-1 option and compatible
after-market board installation a quick and simple.
The TK-7180/8180 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
2-Tone Selective Calling: Four code pairs each with individual and
group page settings and audio visual alerts can be assigned per channel.
