The TK-2312 is a VHF analogue two way radio from Kenwood. Built to IP55 standards the radio has a limited ingress protection against dust, whilst also being resistant to jets of water from all angles. Thin and compact yet sustaining a high level of robustness, the TK-2312 meets MIL-STD-810 (C/D/E/F/G) meaning that it has withstood tests in some of the harshest working conditions.
An ample 128 channel capacity is present with the TK-2312, more than enough to meet requirements for any current or future requirements for a business’ radio system. GPS is also a possibility with the TK-2312 when paired with the optional KMC-48GPS speaker mic, the radio is then capable of functioning as a mobile station for Kenwood’s AVL system.
Easy functionality is also a draw for the Kenwood TK-2312. All buttons on both the front and side of the radio can be assigned to different functions, this for one touch operation suited to differentiating requirements in different working environments. An 8-character LCD with icons is also located on the front of the TK-2312, this makes viewing channel information and FleetSync messaging easy to read whether you are working through the day or night.
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-2312.
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.
VOX Voice Activation is built-in to the Kenwood TK-2312.
Two Way Radio GPS
GPS (global positioning system) is a mechanism which a device can use a number of in-range satellites to trangulate it's position and transmit that position back to the repeater or base station. This enables the supervisor to more effectively manage team members by knowing their current location.

GPS is designed for outdoor tracking. See "Indoor tracking" for indoor solutions.
GPS is an additional extra to the Kenwood TK-2312.
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-2312.
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.
Lone Worker can be programed in to the Kenwood TK-2312.
