The new TH-D75E is the logical further development of the popular TH-D74E duo bander from Kenwood. Not only the housing design of the TH-D75E is reminiscent of its predecessor, the UI design and user guidance also largely follow the proven concept.
Key features of the TH-D75E include:
Built-in Digipeater: One of the outstanding features of the KENWOOD TH-D75E is its built-in digipeater. This allows the transceiver to act as a packet data repeater , which is particularly useful in situations where communication range needs to be extended.
Dual Watch Digital Voice: The TH-D75E offers the Dual Watch Digital Voice (D-STAR) feature, which means you can monitor two digital frequencies simultaneously . This allows you to keep track of several important conversations or communication channels without missing important information.
Wideband Receiver (HF): An exciting feature of the TH-D75E is its wideband receiver, which expands listening possibilities beyond the VHF-UHF bands. You can now explore and tune into shortwave (HF) frequencies , allowing you to enjoy a greater variety of communications and experience new aspects of amateur radio.
Multimode and IF-Shift: The TH-D75E is a multimode transceiver, which means that it supports various communication modes including analog FM and various digital modes. This gives you the flexibility to adapt to different environments and communication preferences. In addition, the IF Shift function allows you to adjust the reception frequency to eliminate interference and improve signal quality.
Analog and digital APRS: Another highlight is the APRS capability (Automatic Packet Reporting System) of the KENWOOD TH-D75E. In both analog and digital modes, you can use APRS to send and receive position information, text messages, and other data. This feature is particularly useful during outdoor activities, emergencies, and search and rescue operations.
Connectivity and power supply: The TH-D75E has a USB-C connection, which facilitates convenient charging (e.g. with a power bank on the go) and connecting to other devices. In addition, it has an integrated TNC (terminal node controller) that allows you to easily connect to APRS systems or other data networks. With an adjustable power from 5W to 100mW, you can adjust the transmission power to suit the situation as needed.
After a long wait, Kenwood has introduced the TH-D75E, a VHF/UHF cellphone that promises to take ham radio communication to a new level. With integrated digipeater, dual receive, broadband capability, multimode.
