The TK-7189 is a UHF mobile radio from Kenwood. Built to IP54 standards the radio has a limited Ingres protection against dust, whilst also being safeguarded against splashes of water from all angles. Rugged and reliable the TK-7189 is built to military standards (MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F), this means that no matter what conditions the radio will continue to operate to the same high standards, all the way from -30°C through to 60°C.

A 12-Character alphanumeric display, full numeric keypad and 6 Programmable functions keys are present on the front of the radio, this allowing for customization of the TK-7189 to suit the operatives needs within their working environment. Text Messages can be pre-programmed into the radio, this allowing for easier communications between workers, with short messages being up to 48 characters and long messages being up to 4096 characters.

The TK-7189 makes use of a Lone Worker function to ensure the safety of operatives, monitoring levels of activity an alert will sound to other radios within the fleet should a pre-set period of inactivity be met by the radio. A 512-channel capacity allows for sufficient communications between a large team, with enhanced Kenwood audio to ensure any messages transmitted are heard first time, every time.

Features Explained

Digital Basic Privacy

Basic Privacy uses a fixed "key" which is set when the radio is programmed, of which there are 255 possible "keys". Whilst this level of privacy is technically basic encryption, it's nevertheless relatively insecure. Comparable to analogue 'inversion' scrambling, it will prevent the 'casual' listener from hearing anything, but does not guarantee against eavesdropping.

 Basic Digital Privacy is built-in to the Kenwood TK-7189

Channel Scanning

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-7189

Lone Worker Feature

Lone Worker is a feature found on many two way radios where it's able to send a pre-determined signal, for example a distress call or alarm, to other radios in range, Lone Worker requires some type of interaction from the radio user after a period of radio inactivity. An example of this is the radio can be set to require the radio operator to interact with his or her radio once every 30 minutes. If they fail to do so, their radio will start making an audible sound. If there is still no interaction with his or her radio within 1 further minute, a alarm will sound to other team members to tell them a team member is not responding to Lone Worker. The supervisor can then dispatch another team member to the non-reponsive team member's last known location to offer assistance.
