Last week Kenwood introduced their new PMR446 transceiver PKT23 in The Netherlands. Other countries will follow the coming months.
The PKT23 is different from other designs, it is small, compact, basic and fits in your pocket easily.
Kenwood made it easy for me, I do not have to write a whole story about this product. They published a good brochure that describes the features of this new model very well.
Enjoy the reading!
The new PKT-23 hand-portable is designed for ‘Light Weight and Simple Operation’, making it the ideal license-free radio for Retail / School / Restaurant / Shopping Mall / Hospitality and so on.
Simple and easy to use – No license required
This license-free two-way radio comes with a 1430mAh Li-lon rechargeable battery, battery charger and belt clip; there’s no need to buy extra accessories for basic operation. lt is ready to use right away.
Light Weight and Simple Operation
Fitting in the palm of your hand, the PKT-23 is easy to take anywhere your staff needs to go. At only 11Og, it can fit comfortably in an apron pocket or attached with the included belt clip. The front panel button layout makes the PKT-23 easy to operate.
Compact, reliable and robust
Users will appreciate just how light (11Og) this radio is. Yet, there is no compromise on build integrity; it meets or exceeds the IP54 dust and water intrusion standards as well as MIL-STD 810 C, D, E, F & G environmental standards, making it tough enough for outdoor use in any weather.
8 Channels with Voice Guide
The PKT-23 provides up to 8 channels, allowing you to assign channels to specific team members. The Voice Guide alerts you when you change channels. All channels are the approved UK/EU PMR446 Service frequencies for full compatibility.
Built-in self programming
Users can change several settings, channel frequency, QT tone or DQT code without using programming software.
Feature Definition: “Wireless Cloning”
The PKT-23 includes Kenwood’s exclusive wireless cloning which allows cloning of multiple portables by a single master portable with a simple “push of a button”…with no cables or wires attached.
