The new Kenwood TR is part of a trend that will change all that. One might suppose that a great deal was sacrificed to cram kwnwood into such a small package. Surprisingly, this is not the case.

On memoriesthe transmitter offset is set with the switch on the far right-hand side of the front panel. Memory 5 programs both transmit and receive frequencies, allowing access to repeaters using non-standard splits. Beneath the memory controls are the combination power switch and volume control and the squelch. Directly to the right of these is the main tuning knob, which steps through the band in a similar manner to the knob on the TR Directly above these are three switches associated with the scanning circuitry.

It will stop on any signal that breaks the squelch and td-7730 scanning when the signal drops. If you hold down the scan button continuously, the rig scans at twice the normal rate. The scan and hold switches work in both the band- and memory-scanning modes. All displays are of the LED variety.

Kenwood TR-7730 Dyna-“mite”.

Above this are three LEDs The one on the far right lights to indicate that a repeater offset has been selected, the middle when the unit is transmitting, and the left when a signal that breaks the squelch is present.

To the left of this is the main frequency display. Most of the rear panel is dedicated to a heat sink for the hnal amplifier In a cluster on the left side are the antenna connector, power cable, speaker jack, and a three-prong jack for a memory backup power supply.


Kenwood wisely avoided compromise in the rf stages in their down-sized rig. The transmitter and receiver stages are strikingly similar to those in the TR Space was saved by shrinking the control circuitry, replacing some discrete components in the audio chain with ICs, and simplifying the final stage.

Specifications are virtually identical for the two rigs. In actual use, the TR is a champ It worked perfectly the moment it came out of the box.

Both transmit and receive audio have the usual Kenwood characteristics — high fidelity with no sacrifice of intelligibility. The squelch is extremely sensitive and seems to latch up resolutely, without the mushmess encountered on many rigs. The controls are thoughtfully shaped kenwoood located—most of us should have no trouble putting the TR through its paces in a dark moving vehicle.

Kenwooc only thing more enjoyable than using this rig is deciding where to tg-7730 it! I connected the remote speaker jack to the in-dash speakers supplied with the car. Not for the squeamish, an in-dash or console instal lation can nevertheless be extremely satisfying I used to enjoy having my car look like a mobile NASA control center, with rigs hanging everywhere, but I get even more pleasure from the clean setup I now have.

If you decide to try an in-dash installation, just be sure that there is plenty of air kenwooe available. Inadequate cooling can kill a rig. On the plus side, it has all 16 tones, which is useful, and the audio quality of the condensor mike element is unquestionably superior to the mike packed with the ng On the negative side of the ledger, the mike is small!


The small size no longer bothers me, but I am still looking for something to hang the mike on when I am not using it.

My advice is to check out the mike carefully before buying, and it it seems too small to cope with, pick up a Kenwood MC There are an awful lot of 5-kHz split repeaters out there now, and it would be useful if the band-scanning circuitry stopped with the discriminator centered There are currently only two rigs available that offer this feature that I am aware of — the Azden and the KDK Finally, for some reason the rig scans much slower in the memory-scanning mode than in the band-scanning mode.


It should be easy to speed up the scan rate; the first person to come up with a good mod is guaranteed an article in 73! These last two points are purely personal opinion, and others may never complain The dim display is another matter and has plagued almost every two-meter rig I have used.

I realize that it would be expensive, but the ultimate solution might be a light-sensing circuit like the one found on the IC I have used rigs that offered more features, rigs with better receivers, and rigs with brighter displays, but I have yet to test anything that combines the features, performance, compact size, and reasonable price of the TR, For home use I might prefer something with more memories, like the new KDK, the TR, or the Azden.

For installation in the small cars that Americans are wont to buy, the TR is sublime.
