THIS IS ALSO A POLICE, FBI, AMBULANCE AND FIRE SCANNER. IT WILL SCAN ALL YOUR PUBLIC SERVICE CHANNELS AS WELL AS MAKE FREE TELEPHONE CALLS ON THE HAM RADIO BANDS. This is an amazing radio! And the 742a is the best of all the kenwood ham radio lines, its the top highest model that kenwood made for the tri-banders. It is the radio of choice for all ham radio operators!2 METERS, 440 MHZ, AND 50MHZ, THE 6 METER BAND INSTALLED! THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RARE FIND. KEEP IN MIND KENWOOD DOES NOT EVEN MAKE OR SELL THEM ANYMORE, SO THEY ARE RARE. THE RADIO COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL KENWOOD TEAR-DROP HAND MIKE. IT HAS ALL THE CONTROLS ON TOP OF IT FOR CHANGING THE CHANNELS WITH THE PRESS OF A BUTTON ON THE MIC.
THIS MIC IS ALSO A TELEPHONE DIAL-OUT MICROPHONE! YES THAT IS CORRECT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE TOTALLY FREE CELLPHONE CALLS ON THIS RIG FOR FREE IF YOU KNOW HOW. THE RADIO IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL AND THE MEMORY BATTERY KEEPS ALL THE PRESETS. THE RADIO LOOKS LIKE ABOUT A 9 OUT OF 10 COSMETICALLY.
THE MIC IS NICE LOOKING ALSO. EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE NEW IN THE ORIGINAL KENWOOD BOX.
THE RADIO COMES WITH EVERYTHING SHOWN INCLUDING A REMOTE FACE EXTENSION CABLE AND REMOTE MIC EXTENSION CABLE. KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU ARE GETTING THE 6METER BAND MODULE INSTALLED AND WHEN NEW, THIS RADIO DID NOT COME WITH THAT CARD. WHEN NEW IT ALSO DID NOT COME WITH THE FACE WITH MIC EXTENSION KIT EITHER. SO YOUR GETTING A MUCH BETTER RADIO THAN WHEN NEW. THE CONDITION IS AS GOOD AS A NEW RADIO.NO SCRATCHES AT ON THE RADIO. THIS RADIO IS AS GOOD AS IT WAS NEW FROM THE STORE. THIS RADIO IS NEW IN THE BOX AND INCLUDES ALL THAT IS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS. YOU GET THE RADIO WITH 2M, 6METER AND 1440MHZ INSTALLED. YOU ALSO WILL RECEIVE THE POWER CORD PLUG TO PLUG RIGHT IN TO YOUR 12VOLT SUPPLY. YOU GET THE TELEPHONE DIALING MICROPHONE WITH RADIO FREQUENCY HAND FAST CONTROL. Below is optional reading, its just about how ham radio works in general.
For extra info: All the band modules are fully interchangeable with the741's and 742A and this radio, I believe the owners manual is the same also or very similar. I think kenwood kept these tri-banders pretty much identical. I would say choose your pick, tm-641, tm-642, tm741 and tm-742 are all the same radio. I think the main difference is the 2 band modules that came with these radios were switched.
Some came with 2m and 220mhz or they would come with 2m and 440mhz and you would pick which two bands you wanted to start with depending on the model and you could add a third module later at your choice. I think this is the only difference which really is no difference at all since all modules are completely 100% interchangeable, there is no soldering involved they all simply unplug relatively easily. All the band modules that fit these radios listed above will be prefixed with "UT". They are all the same. This I know for sure and you can check on line as well as this is public information.
This is a kenwood Tri-Band Amateur radio. Never used in mobile kept in like new condition with all bands working GUARANTEED! Radio will memorize frequencies, offsets, tones etc. Also does automatic offsets as frequencies are scanned. The most sought after band modules are included and you can also change and insert many modules like the 28 Mhz, 50 Mhz and 10meter amateur bands.Picture is of actual unit. The condition of this radio is OUTSTANDING! No scratches on the transparent part of the display face (this is the most important place to be scratch free) at all and no pealing or fading button lettering neither on the face nor on the dtmf telephone dialing microphone either. The radio was never mobile and was very well kept.
You simply need to just ask the locals on the radio for the codes. You can dial out if you have the codes to an auto patch repeater in your town by simply dialing the number on your telephone dialing key pad that comes with this rig! Did you know most all repeaters now come on board with IRLP also?
It is the new internet radio linking program. Simply tie in to any IRLP repeater in your town, enter the proper command on the key pad that comes with this radio given by the repeater club and you are instantly connected with clear crisp digital audio to repeaters and other hams AROUND THE GLOBE IN SECONDS!! Yes the internet is not only for computers, it has now come full circle in to the ham radio community and IRLP repeaters are very common now. Say you want to talk to hams in Italy, just enter the command on your key pad and instantly you are connected to any Italian city repeater you choose with in seconds! What is even more cool, its all FREE!
Most all ham radio repeater clubs run strictly on donations only! Ham radio is AWESOME and so is this radio! This is what ham radio is all about instant communication around the globe with unlimited talk time ALL FOR FREE! So unlike cell phones with no resale value, this radio will always be worth a lot if you want to sell it someday.· Did you also know this is a police scanner as well. You can program this to scan, police, fire, 24hour weather stations, air craft and darn near any public service available can be scanned and listened to with this rig. Now I do know that the 741 will also talk on the police and sheriff frequencies as well. I even got a public service and police frequency book and programmed it to talk there one day. This rig will actually key up the police repeaters on the mountain tops but please do not attempt to do this as it is not legal. So even though this radio may have the capability to do these fancy things PLEASE don't attempt to try this as it is not legal to talk out of the ham bands....... · So yes this radio does defiantly have the capability to be used in any police car if you set it up to do so and will out perform the most advanced modern day government police radios by about 1000 to one! This radio will blow he best police radio clear out of the water, there is no comparison. This radio does all that and 1000 things more than the most advanced government radio equipment. Then I had to laugh because I know ours are 1000 times more powerful and cost a fraction of what they pay for their junk. Again PLEASE do not mess around with the transmit out side of the ham bands as it is not legal to talk out of the ham bands, you may lessen but you must not talk, please be a responsible when using this powerful rig........
This is considered by hams to be one of the best radios ever made. This is the radio of choice and puts all the new radios you find in stores to shame because it will do so much more than they will do! Most hams prefer to keep these because they are the really good ones!What I like about this radio is that you can cross band repeat with it, go in on one band and come out on another, so it acts like a repeater for a handy talkie radio. Its an awesome feature in a radio to say the least! This radio is not only a telephone dialing radio it is also a repeater all in one tiny package.
I GUARANTEE THIS TO WORK PERFECTLY AND WILL LOOK OUTSTANDING COSMETICALLY AS WELL. I HAVE ALL MY HAPPY CUSTOMERS FROM THE BUYERS THAT HAVE LEFT THEIR HAPPY COMMENTS.FOR THE GUARANTEE, I WILL RETURN THIS FOR 30 DAYS JUST AS ANY STORE WOULD DO. YOU CAN VEIW THAT SALE BY SIMPLY CLICKING ON PAGE 4 or 5 OF MY FEEDBACK.
THAT ITEM COMMENT IN MY FEEBACK LOOKS LIKE WHAT I HAVE SHOWN BELOW. Item was boxed well and arrived in great shape. Please keep in mind these are not toys and require licenses to transmit on because the owner needs to take the responsibility to use the radio correctly. A lot of serious problems in the entire city or community will occur if you do not take the responsibility to use this radio correctly.We have had huge coverage repeaters shut down recently in our area due to improper use of these radios so it is important to use them correctly. Also some public service systems have also seen these same problems. Lots of systems now cover several states and go internationally as well so it is very very important to use this radio correctly. I have an FCC license for this. Go ahead and ask any questions about ham radio and I will give you a great and accurate response. WE HAVE AN FANCY REPEATER SYSTEM HERE THAT ALLOWS US HAMS TO PLACE INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE CALLS WORLD WIDE FOR FREE AND YOU CAN TALK ALL DAY LONG AS THERE ARE NO TIME RESTRICTIONS! ALSO THESE ARE NOT JUST "ONE PERSON CAN TALK AT A TIME PHONES" AS MOST FOLKS WRONGLY BELIEVE!
YOU CAN ALSO USE A SEPARATE SCANNER TO DO THE LESSENING IF YOU SO PREFER AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BOTH TALK AND LISTEN AT THE SAME TIME EVEN LOUDER AND CLEARER THAN A HOME TELEPHONE AS THE AUDIO CAN BE BLASTING WITH SURROUND SOUND THROUGH OUT YOUR CAR. HE SOON UNDERSTOOD THAT HAM RADIO IS WELL WORTH ANY REASONABLE SALE PRICE! TO ME THAT SEEMS STRANGE.
BY ALL MEANS, FEEL FREE TO SEND ME YOUR OPINIONS ABOUT THIS, SINCE MY THOUGHTS ARE A LITTLE REMOVED FROM ORTHODOX MAIN STREAM TRADITION, OR THE WAY MOST FOLKS THINK. NONE THE LESS MY THOUGHTS ARE 100% TRUE STATEMENTS.
IN FACT I ENJOY TEASING ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO LOVE THEIR EXPENSIVE CELL PHONES BY DEMONSTRATING THE POWER OF THE HAM RADIO AUTO PATCH! I GO OVER THERE AND LITERALLY SHOW THEM AND THEY ARE TOTALLY SHOCKED WITH AMAZEMENT! THEY ASK CAN I DO THAT FREE CALLING STUFF TOO????I FURTHER EXPLAIN TO THEM THAT THEIR TINY LITTLE CELL PHONES ONLY WORK IN THE CITY AND ONCE THEY DRIVE AWAY FROM THE CITY OR GO IN THE MOUNTAINS THEIR CELL PHONES NO LONGER WORK! THIS IS BECAUSE CELL PHONES PUT OUT LESS THAN 1/4 OF A WATT AND REQUIRE A CELL SIGHT EVERY 5 MILES AND HAVE NO ANTENNA! THERE ARE NO CELL CITES UP IN MOST MOUNTAIN AREAS AND THEREFORE CELL PHONES HAVE A VERY LIMITED RANGE AND ARE NOT DEPENDABLE FOR THIS REASON. AFTER I EXPLAIN ALL THIS, THEN THEY JUST GO BACK TO PAYING THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON THERE CELL PHONES BECAUSE ITS TOO MUCH TROUBLE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO TAKE A TEST. PRETTY HARD TO TEACH AN OLD HORSE NEW TRICKS, FOLKS ARE USED TO SPENDING MORE THAN THEY SHOULD BUT AS THEY SAY HABITS ARE HARD TO BREAK SO THEY WILL NOT CHANGE, BUT ITS FUN TO SHOW THEM THESE NEW OPPORTUNITIES ANYWAY. ITS FUN TO SHOW PEOPLE FANTASTIC THINGS THEY ARE MISSING OUT ON. The item "EX-RARE KENWOOD TM-742A 2M 440 50MhZ POLICE SCANNER CELL PHONE HAM RADIO FRESHP" is in sale since Saturday, October 9, 2021.
