Small is beautiful: Kenwood�s super-compact FM tribander with dual-channel

 TH-F6ANestled in the palm of your hand, Kenwood�s new TH-F6A is incredibly small� just 2-5/16 x 3-7/16 x 1-3/16 inches (W x H x D). How could so much be packed into such a super-compact design? Impossible! But it�s true. This little wonder is an FM tribander (144/220/440MHz) with dual-channel RX capability, 16-key pad, multi-scroll key, and no fewer than 435 memory channels. Other attractive features include a built-in ferrite bar antenna for AM broadcasts, LCD with backlight, and a lithium- on battery. Small enough to slip into a pocket, the TH-F6A allows you to roam freely while enjoying the clear, reliable communications for which Kenwood is renowned. And despite its smart looks, it�s tough enough to meet MIL-STD criteria for withstanding the rigors of outdoor use, while delivering superb performance.

Priority on operating ease

Simple operation is an essential component of this FM tribander, and Kenwood engineers have ensured that it can be operated effortlessly with one hand.

Your attention is drawn to the easy-to-read LCD -- equipped with both contrast control and backlight -- displaying essential frequency and memory information, intuitive menus, and multi-level battery status. In mono-band mode, the size of the frequency display is doubled for even greater visibility.


Multi-scroll key & 16-key pad

Operating ease is further enhanced with the multi-scroll key. Similar to the control found on some cellular phones, this can be rocked up & down, left & right with the thumb. Vertical operation controls frequency, while horizontal movement controls band selection. There is also a 16-key pad with keys that are ergonomically spaced and illuminated for nighttime use.

435 memory channels, multiple scan functions

Other specifications are equally impressive: 435 memory channels, including 3 call channels and another 20 for programmable scan. A complete range of scan functions is provided -- including MHz, memory, call, tone, CTCSS and DCS. Group scan mode covers 8 groups of 50 channels each. And you can choose between time-operated (TO) and carrier-operated (CO) busy-stop-resume (SE).

Multi-band transceiver (Main band) + wideband receiver (Sub band)

As polished as the user interface may be, it's what is inside that counts. And the TH-F6A counts twice over: it's both a 3-band transceiver (Main A band) and a wideband 0.1~1300MHz receiver*1 (Sub B band). In addition to FM/FM-W/FM-N/AM and SSB/CW, the receiver section offers a special weather channel mode*2, built-in ferrite bar antenna*3 for receiving AM broadcasts, and Fine mode -- with selectable increment (33/100/500/1000Hz*4) -- for extra-accurate SSB tuning. What's more, this handheld transceiver can receive 2 frequencies simultaneously, even on the same band. Versatility is first rate.

Tough construction

The smaller a transceiver, the farther it is likely to travel. Fortunately, the TH-F6A is built to take rough treatment in stride, satisfying the stringent MIL-STD 810 C/D/E standards for resistance to vibration, shock, humidity and light rain.
