How do I know which Kenwood radio to use?
Consider the following: UHF radios are ideal for indoor use where the user will encounter obstacles such as concrete walls or floors, etc. VHF radios are suitable for outdoor use through foliage, or in instances where users will be some distance apart, but still within line of sight. Another factor to consider is the radio’s total output power in watts - a 5 watt radio will offer considerably more coverage than a 2 watt radio.
How far can I talk?

That depends on where you’re using your radios! The very best radio range is achieved on open, flat ground with little to no obstructions. Bear in mind that buildings, trees, hills and other obstructions will limit your total range.

Why are Kenwood radios so durable and rugged?
 Simply because Kenwood knows that radios have to be tough to withstand years of hard indoor and outdoor usage. ProTalk radios are specially designed to meet or exceed rigid Mil-Spec standards established by the US Department of Defense, so they are more than capable of meeting the demands of daily use.
Are Kenwood radios compatible with other business radios ?

Yes! All you have to do is match the frequency and code.

Can a VHF radio talk to a UHF radio?

No! VHF and UHF frequency bands are not compatible.

Is an FCC license required?
YES! You can download FCC form 601 and instructions at www.fcc.gov/formpage.html or call 1-888-call-fcc.
