TM-V708 A
144/440 MHz FM Dual Bander

Peerless Performance, Raised to the Power of Two

Kenwood�s astonishing TM-V708A dual-band (144/440MHz) transceiver has a dual personality:
it can receive 2 frequencies simultaneously�even on the same band. It�s packed with such convenient features as 200 memory channels, a memory bank scan function, and a large dot-matrix LCD. And the front panel is fully detached to allow for versatile installation in cars.

In addition to simultaneous receive on VHF and UHF bands, the TM-V708A can receive two frequencies on the very same band. This means, for example, that you can have both the call channel and local channel, or the repeater channel and local channel, on the same band.

To suit different situations, the TM-V708A has a programmable memory that can store five entire operating profiles, ready for instant recall at the push of a button. Each profile includes such settings as positive/negative display mode, dimmer level, frequency range, and memory mode.

Enjoy capacity as well as versatility: there are 200 split memory channels for storing essential data � transmit and receive frequencies, frequency step, tone frequency, etc. And for greater convenience, you can opt to identify each channel with up to 8 alphanumeric characters (Memory Name function).

In addition to VFO scan, program scan, MHz scan, memory scan and call scan, the TM-V708A has a memory bank scan that allows you to select which of the 10 memory banks to scan. Another attractive feature is visual scan: by automatically checking above and below the frequency currently in use, and graphing the results on the LCD, this is handy for searching out open channels. Also featured are scan resume (time-operated, carrieroperated, and seek), memory channel lockout, tone scan, CTCSS scan, and DCS scan.

In addition to CTCSS (38 EIA Standard subtone frequencies) and 1750MHz tone burst, the TM-V708A is equipped for DCS (Digital Code Squelch, 104 codes). Pick a DCS code and you can be sure that the squelch will only open for reception when the other party uses the same code.

AIP is available for the 144MHz band to minimize intermod or adjacent channel interference.

Thanks to the 188x54 dot large LCD display, a wealth of information is made available in an easy-to-see format. And the multifunction keys � identified with the function key display � further enhance operating ease since only the relevant keys are labeled at any one time. And with the optional VS-3 voice synthesizer installed, key operations are audibly announced.

The smart metallic grey control panel is fully detached, so the main unit can be installed out of sight up to 3 meters away (further using the optional PG-4X extended cable kit). Special brackets are supplied for easy mounting and quick release of the panel.
