- High-visibility display
Capable of displaying up to 7 large alphanumeric characters - in either frequency or
Memory Name mode - the positive-type amber LCD comes with a 4-step dimmer control to suit
all driving conditions, day or night. A thoughtful touch is the automatic brightening
- Easy Operation mode
This mode allows the transceiver to be operated as easily as a car radio. You simply
choose a frequency and press one of the 3 memory keys for one second to save it. A light
touch on the same key is all that is required for recall, after which the encoder can be
used to tune above or below that frequency.
- "Five-in-one" programmable memory
In addition to its regular profile, the TM-C707A can store four other operating profiles -
complete with frequency range, dimmer level, and other details - ready for instant recall
at the push of a button. You can further choose automatic updating of the current profile
if you wish.
- 180 multi-function memory channels
There is no shortage of capacity: 180 memory channels are available for storing such
important data as transmit and receive frequencies (independently, thus allowing
split-frequency operations), frequency step, and tone frequency.
- Memory Name function
A convenience that is especially welcome for mobile applications is this function which,
as its name suggests, allows you to identify each of the 180 channels with up to 7
alphanumeric characters. You can also switch instantly between the frequency and Memory
- Multi-scan functions
User-friendliness is further enhanced by full band and program band scans, memory scan
with memory channel lock-out, MHz scan and call scan. For each band there are TO
(time-operated) and CO (carrier-operated) scan stop modes.
- Priority scan function
Of special note is priority scan, available in two modes: choose mode A to check every 3
seconds, whether or not the displayed frequency is busy; or choose mode B to check at the
same interval, but only when the displayed frequency is not busy.
- Built-in CTCSS encoder/decoder
The CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) encoder/decoder enables operation of the
38 EIA-standard CTCSS subtone frequencies including tone scan.
- 6-pin mini DIN connector for 1200/9600bps packet
The front panel features a connector for hooking up to a TNC, enabling either standard
1200bps or 9600bps high-speed packet or APRS communications. This same connector can also
be used for PC programming of the transceiver.
- Cross-band repeater access
You can access cross-band repeaters using two frequencies for sending and receiving
(though not simultaneously)
- Quick-release detachable
front panel kit (option) If you are concerned about security, simply remove the compact
front panel whenever your vehicle is left unattended. If one of the 3 optional
quick-release kits is used, the panel can be mounted virtually anywhere since the micro-
phone cable connects directly to the main unit.
