The TK-3501 is a license free portable two way radio from Kenwood. Labelled as having industrial strength, the TK-3501 is built to US MIL-STD specification. IP54 ingress protection means that the radio has both a limited protection against dust intrusion, but is also safeguarded against splashes of water from all angles. Supplied as standard with a KNB-63L 1100mAh Li-Ion battery, this will allow for up to 20 hours of battery life when used in battery saver turned on.
Kenwoods TK-3501 has an internal VOX function, coming with 10-level sensitivity adjustment, this will allow for hands free use of the radio should it be needed in your working environment. 1 Programmable function key is present, allowing for customization of your TK-3501 in order to make easier usage for the operator.
With a channel capacity of 16, alongside 8 PMR446 frequencies the TK-3501 is pre-programmed ready for use right out of the box. Features such as battery saver mode, calling alert, key lock and a low battery warning are also present. Included in the box with this radio is an antenna, charger, battery, belt clip and a user manual.
Channel scanning enables the user to monitor a number of channels and respond when a transmission comes through. The scan feature can usually be programmed to include or exclude channels from the scan. Scanning fewer channels makes the scan faster.
A common example is when there is a private channel and community channel programmed. This is usually the case for a shop which is a member of the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch / pub-watch) scheme. The radio would "scan", or alternate between, both channels. Normally, they might only use channel 1 for their own private use within the organisation. But when a transmission (or call) comes through on the local business crime reduction (or shop-watch) scheme channel becomes active. Then within a few seconds the radio would revert back to it's original channel 1.
Digital hybrid radios can usually scan either or both digital and analogue channels simultaneously. This allows for an extremely flexible scan facility where the user can monitor many channels across both analogue and digital modes.
Channel Scanning is built-in to the Kenwood TK-3501.
Voice Activation (VOX)
Voice activation, commonly refered to as VOX, allows the user to initiate the radio to transmit, simply by using their voice. Some radios only allow VOX capability via an external audio accessory such as an earpiece or headset which is VOX-enabled or has a VOX button.
Activating Voice Activation or VOX
There are two possible ways of enabling voice activation (VOX). The first is that we can program a VOX-enable / VOX disable button on the radio. The other option is that we supply an audio accessory, an earpiece or headset, that has a VOX button. Contact us for more information about this.
Programming May Be Required
There may be programming required to activate VOX on your radio. In any event, please talk to our knowledgeable staff and we will be able to offer advice on VOX activation.
Voice Activation (VOX) is built-in to the Kenwood TK-3501, but a VOX-enabled audio accessory, such as an earpiece or headset, may be required.
