Kenwood introduces two new license-free handheld two-way radios

Kenwood has launched two new license-free professional hand-portable radios -   the TK-3401D ProTalk Digital and the TK-3501 ProTalk analogue. The two hand-portable radios will reinforce Kenwood’s position in the professional PMR446 sector.

Kenwood has been at the forefront of license-free PMR (personal mobile radio) 446 since 1998 with their first SRBR model. Since then it has established the rugged, high performance ProTalk range as the choice for professional users around the world.

The new TK-3401D ProTalk Digital radios (pictured above) brings all the advantages of digital radio communications in a license-free format including increased coverage, improved audio quality and additional security.  

It is built on the ETSI compliant dPMR protocol and features 16 channels in each of two zones for congestion-free communications and analogue/digital dual mode to allow existing analogue users to migrate to digital while continuing to use existing radios.
The TK-3501 ProTalk brings ‘unprecedented levels of performance and value’ to PMR 446 users requiring a simple to operate, compact, lightweight and durable professional analogue hand-portable radio. It features extended range over its predecessor, the well-known TK-3301, through the use of a precision tuned RX section and enhanced volume with its 1.5w BTL amplifier.

These new ProTalk license-free radios follow an dynamic period of product launches over the past two years from Kenwood, including its dPMR and DMR ranges and the ATEX extension to its fast growing NEXEDGE digital portfolio.
