TH-D7AAPRS (Automatic Packet Position Reporting System)
Using APRS, the TH-D7A lets you transmit your coordinates to a friend, who can then pinpoint your position using a map on a computer. APRS software has been developed for a variety of platforms; however, what makes the Data Communicator so special is that it enables APRS operation without requiring a computer. And when you receive your friend's positional data, you can display latitude/longitude, direction and distance on your own Data Communicator.

Positional/directional data
Just hook up to a GPS receiver and you can transmit your position for automatic calculation of distance, current speed and heading with icons, short comments or fixed messages. Manual input of latitude/longitude is also permitted.

Versatile messaging
Transmit alphanumeric messages (up to 45 characters) and bulletins. Alternatively, short comments (up to 20 characters) and fixed messages (8 patterns) can be sent together with your positional data.

Station list
Store received APRS data in up to 40 memory channels.

  • Grid square locator display

  • Packet path selection for digipeaters (relay and/of wide)

  • Weather station, PHG data (fixed stations) & Object data reception

  • TX interval (0.5/1/2/3/5/10/20/30 min.)

TH-D7A + VC-HI (Visual Communicator)

The TH-D7A also works hand-in-hand with Kenwood's VC-H 1 Visual Communicator, which combines an image-scan converter and 1/4-inch CCD camera in a compact battery operated unit. 
Simply connect it to the TH-D7A to start sending and receiving color images over the air. As well as viewing incoming pictures, you can review your own prior to transmission on the 1.8-inch TFT display. And you can store up to 10 pictures in memory.

Other features include:

Text superimpose function
Add your call sign, RSV reports, messages (8 text colors available).

VC shutter
With a VC-H1 connected to your Data Communicator, you can initiate transmission remotely.

Fast FM mode compatibility
This high-speed transmission mode lets you send an image in 14 seconds (aprox.)

SSTV transmission mode selection (9 modes)
You can use any of the 8 standard SSTV modes, in addition to Fast FM.

Dual receive for voice & image transmission (VHF only)

As well as allowing you to enjoy both APRS and SSTV (with Kenwood's VC-HI), the TH-D7A is fully equipped to provide the performance and features you would expect of the latest generation of dual band transceivers.
