Frequently Asked Questions

I want to call just one person on my radio. Can I do that?

Kenwood’s proprietary FleetSync feature allows the creation of a network of  individual radio id’s. Using these id’s you can call users direct, by department or all by using only ONE channel. This allows multiple users to call simultaneously.

I have multiple radios. Do I have to reprogram each radio?

Not always! Kenwood’s radios have a proprietary wireless cloning feature which allows you to share the settings of one radio with over 200 same model radios in less than 60 seconds! Simply program a master unit and follow the instructions in your owners manual on cloning.

When operating my radio I can hear other users and they interrupt my conversations. How can I avoid or eliminate this?

What your experiencing is “cross chatter”. This happens when two radio users within range of each other are operating on the same frequencies. This can be eliminated by changing channel frequencies, adding privacy codes or switching to another channel. See the cloning and programming FAQs for your model for a demonstration. Comquip also recommends licensing your frequencies with the FCC. This ensures that no one can operate on the same frequency within your assigned territory.

Are Kenwood radios compatible with other Radios?

Yes! Radio communication is set by three factors: Channel, Frequency and Code. The channel is the setting on the radio to which frequency and code are locked in. Using field programming and cloning you can set channels to match the frequency and codes of other business radios. The channel defaults match most other brands right out of the box.

Can a VHF radio talk to a UHF radio?

No! VHF and UHF frequency bands are not compatible.

How far can I talk?

Talk range will vary based upon terrain, conditions and type of radio. The best talk range conditions is flat ground without obstructions, your radio will talk for many miles.

However each environment is different and we will consult with you at your location to recomend the correct radio for your use. Please contact us for help determining what is best for you.

Why are Kenwood radios so durable and rugged?

Simply because Kenwood knows that radios have to be tough to withstand the years of hard indoor and outdoor usage and ProTalk® radios are specially designed to meet or exceed rigid Mil-Spec standards established by the US Department of Defense.
