TRUNKED MODE WITH CONVENTIONAL AND LTR.
Kenwood's new TK-980/981 models allow programming for conventional and LTR.
systems operation with features such as fixed priority/block decode ID codes, free system
ringback for telephone interconnect operation, transmit inhibit and transpond function.
LARGE CHANNEL CAPACITY
In Trunked System, the 32 system and 250-group maximum memory capacity� and
600-channel capability can meet all your site requirements now and in the future. Each
programmed system can be either set for either conventional or LTR. trunking
� System and group memory capacity varies depending on the total number of
systems, groups and repeater channels per system.
The FleetSync basic alphanumeric two-way messaging provides the built-in
capability of Selective Calling with Caller ID, Digital AMI, Emergency ANI & Emergency
Calling features, Radio Stun & Resurrect and Status Messaging (send and receive radio
pro-stored status messages). Optional features include creation of custom alphanumeric
text messages. Also, as with an alphanumeric pager, received pages are stored in memory
for convenient viewing on the spot or for reviewing later.
DATA-READY CONNECTION PORT
The TK-980/981 mobiles have a data connection port for versatile use with
external mobile data terminals, PC-modems (requires KCT-19 option), or AVL units.
PROGRAMMABLE FUNCTION KEYS (PF KEYS)
Each key is programmable for virtually any radio feature allowing fully
customized user settings. Streamline everyday operation with simple feature sets to meet
basic needs and reduce training time. Sophisticated feature sets can be programmed for
supervisory personnel or special applications.
FLASH MEMORY ADVANTAGE
Inclusion of flash memory permits updates, advanced feature sets and system
architectural changes to be made electronically without ever opening the unit. Providing
for faster changes by the system operator and less downtime for users.
HIGH-QUALITY AUDIO OUTPUT
The TK-980/981 is equipped with an extra-large 2.25-inch speaker element and
delivers 4W audio power for excellent clarity, even in industrial settings with
high-levels of background noise.
COMPACT VERSATILE MOUNTING
Lightweight and compact in size, these units facilitate easy mounting even in the
tight or awkward positions of today's vehicles. The front panel can be inverted for
correct viewing while leaving the built-in speaker facing away from the mounting surface.
COMPANDED AUDIO (TK-981)
The compandor noise-reduction feature increases the audio clarity of narrow
bandwidth systems and is programmable to function per channel. Voice intelligence
components are amplified and compressed at the transmit end then re-expanded on the
receive end to reproduce the original audio signal.
Strength & durability
MIL-STD 810C/D/E ENVIRONMENTAL TESTS
Designed according to Kenwood's stringent operation tests for technical and
industrial standards, the TK-980/981 also meets or exceeds a full range of tough U.S.
Department of Defense MIL-STD 810 C, D & E environmental standards in several
The lightweight aluminum die-cast chassis contributes to the TK-980/981 unit's
exceptional strength and provides for natural heat dissipation. Inter-locking metal covers
and seals lockout moisture and dust.
intuitive user interface
DOT MATRIX LCD DISPLAY
The unit's high-resolution dot matrix liquid crystal display provides a simple,
easy-to-read interface and is recessed for protection. The main display line has twelve
alphanumeric characters for system/group/channel name aliases, operational/status
indications and FleetSync features. A three-character subline can be programmed for
channel or group number. The seven icons provide easy-to-remember feature and status
indications in all modes of operation. Nighttime operation is facilitated with
backlighting of the LCD panel and operation keys.
DUAL COLOR TRI-STATE LED INDICATOR
The dual color tri-state LED provides the user with a visual indicator that
clearly distinguishes between transmission (red), reception (green) and decode alert for
DTMF and Two-tone selective calling (flashing orange).
MULTIPLE SCANNING FUNCTIONS
Trunked Mode operation offers system and group scan permitting monitoring for
calls on multiple systems and talk groups. The systems can have a user or fixed add/delete
status while groups are fixed add/delete. Priority scanning is available for Trunked Mode
operation only within programmed conventional systems. Conventional Mode operation permits
single priority scanning within a single group-multiple channel or multi-group configured
radio. Talk Back scan permits users to respond immediately to calls regardless of the
pre-programmed or selected scan revert channels (conventional mode).
DTMF SIGNALING & DIALING FEATURES
DTMF PTT ID provides a built-in ANI for public service, business and industrial
applications�. The manual DTMF operation with the optional KMC-28A keypad microphone
permits DTMF controlled applications such as selective calling, system access, remote
control and access to the radio's automatic dialing features such as the auto-dial memory
for telephone interconnect and/or integrated Radio-PABX systems.
� DTMF PTT ID is
available in Conventional or Trunked Systems; DTMF PTT ID does not have an emergency ANI
feature nor does it operate in conjunction with any of the emergency key or emergency
PUBLIC ADDRESS &
Public Address (PA) and Horn Alert (HA) capability is available with the optional
KAP-1 unit. The PA function outputs mic audio through the radio's external speaker or can
feed a more powerful external public address amplifier. The Horn Alert function can be
used to trigger a vehicle horn/light.
Encryption control provides secure voice communications for law enforcement or
private security. An internal port permits addition of optional modules for user-defined
voice scrambling from low-level inversion to high-level encryption types. The radio's
programming also provides both automatic and manual control for clear and coded modes.
PASSWORD-PROTECTED PROGRAMMING AND CLONING
Cloning for duplication of radios in the field is enabled via a simple interface
cable, without the use of a PC or special test jigs. A secure password can be programmed
to prevent cloning of a lost or stolen portable for users who do not require cloning
capability. Additionally, all radios can have the programming password(s) protected to
prevent unauthorized program information extraction and duplication in case of theft or
RADIO LOCK PASSWORD
Preventing unauthorized use of stolen radios, this feature requires an access
code to be entered every time the radio is powered up. The password can be selected with
up to a maximum of 6 digits and can be easily field programmed or modified by an
authorized user (requires optional KMC-28A keypad microphone).
The radio's flash memory can store an electronic message containing owner
identification, property 1.D. numbers, user and department names, service records, etc.
Making a unit electronically identifiable even if external labels, markings or factory
serial numbers have been removed
DEAD BEAT DISABLE (D.B.D)
Useful when functions of the radio need to be rendered unusable, reception of a
pre-determined DTMF signal can either disable the unit's signal transmission, or prohibit
signal transmission, while muting signal reception volume.
