The TK-2302 is a UHF analogue two way radio from Kenwood. Rugged and reliable the TK-3302 is IP55 ingress protection rated, this means that not only does the radio have a limited protection against dust, but also is safeguarded against jets of water. The TK-2302 comes as standard with a KNB-45L Li-Ion battery, this will allow for up to 15 hours of use. Also included with this radio is a rapid charger, antenna, and belt clip.

An internal VOX function is present on the Kenwood TK-2302, this allows for voice activation should it be needed within your working environment. Also included to aid the use of the user are features such as battery saver mode, battery saver mode is an option in order to pro-long operational time. Low battery warning notifies the user when the TK-2302 is running low on battery, and needs to be placed on charge.

The TK-2302 has a channel capacity of 16, this allowing for multiple conversations to take place across the workplace without interruption. When selecting a new channel, the radio will announce the channel ID to avoid confusion when selecting your new channel. Enhanced Kenwood audio gives the user a clearer listening experience, meaning that messages between workers are much more efficient.

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-2302.

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-2302.

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-2302, but a VOX-enabled audio accessory, such as an earpiece or headset, may be required.
