The TK-D240 is a VHF DMR digital two way radio from Kenwood. Built to IP55 standards this means that the TK-D240 has a limited ingress protection against dust, but is also safeguarded against jets of water from all angles. Coming as standard with the KNB-45L Li-Ion battery, this will allow for up to 13.5 hours of use in digital mode, allowing for extended working periods without the need for a battery charge or change. A battery saver mode is also a feature of the TK-D240, allowing for extended battery life should it be needed.
The Kenwood TK-D240 has a 32 channel capacity, but also has a selectable 16 channels using the channel stopper feature. Analogue signalling types such as QT/DQT, Fleet Sync, and 2-Tone are also present on the radio. AMBE+2 VOCODER technology allows for the radio to accurately replicate natural human speech, giving superior voice quality even when higher levels of ambient noise are present.
Designed to be slim with an ergonomically stylish design, the TK-D240 stands at 121.4mm high, 54mm wide and 33.8mm in depth. This design allows for the TK-D240 to be easy to grip and operate, whilst also remaining both robust and reliable. Built to MIL-STD-810 (C/D/E/F/G) this also aids to the radios reliability, noting that it has been tested in harsher working environments whilst maintaining the same level of operation.
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-D240.
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-D240.
TDMA is a technology that allows several users to share the same frequency channel by dividing the signal into different time slots. With DMR this is two time slots to every 12.5KHz frequency channel allocation. Before DMR every 12.5KHz frequency allocation could carry just one broadcast of RF traffic. Now with DMR 12.5KHz bandwidth allows two voice channels. See the video below for an explanation on how this works.
DMR TDMA is built-in feature to the Kenwood TK-D240.
An ideal digital migration radio as the Kenwood TK-D240 can be programmed to operate on DMR digital mode and or FM analogue modes, even on the same channel - autosensing the received mode. With built-in 5-tone encode/decode TK-D240 is capable of operating on older analogue systems and CTCSS/DCS support allows the radio to work back-to-back with any other brand analogue two-way radio (programming may be required).
FREE Radio ID Labels Supplied & Applied
For no extra cost, we supply labels with all of our radios.
Our labels are unique in that they have a space where you can write on them with a sharpie-type permanent marker. You can either use this space to write a radio number or apply a dymo label for example. These labels ate 100% free of charge
