Great handheld

Kenwood TH-F6A, Handheld VHF/UHF Transceiver

I have had this radio for about a month now and it works very good. I have used it to make contacts on nearby repeaters. The mobile control function doesn't work quite right with my TM-V71A, but that really doesn't matter. Other than that, it's a great radio that I would recommend to anyone looking for a good HT.

A shack in the pocket! A multi-bander's must!

Kenwood TH-F6A, Handheld VHF/UHF Transceiver

This HT is an absolutely no brainer! Tri-band full power on 2m / 222MHz / and 440MHz! The SMA tri-band duck antenna works OK, but to have it work better, get the Comet, or Diamond, tri-band antenna. Speaker is less than 1", but very loud and perky. Can load up to 400 memory channels. And having a QSO on low power 50mW can be done all day. Take this HT with you to a Hamfest with other friends with 222MHz HT's, and you'll have a band that you won't get desensed and over crowded with. Great Kenwood audio quality on RX and TX. Some have commented to me that they couldn't tell that I was on an HT. However, the "B" side on receive is where this HT is a surprise. Do you want to listen to what your stations sounds like on HF, 6M, 144.200MHz, 222.100MHz, 432.100MHz, 902.1MHz, and 1296.1MHz, in AM, FM, CW, and both SSB's? You can do it with this HT. Stuck in traffic and want to listen to truckers? Punch in 27.185MHz AM for CB CH19. Want to check out local AM and FM broadcasts? This HT does that, and has it's own built-in bar antenna for that. Put it to a wire antenna for all mode HF listening. The big minus of having an HT this wide-banded is easy front end overload and intermod suffering, even from out-of-band signals. As an HT, this is usually not a problem, but with a gain mobile and base antenna, it is. Programming is the easy Kenwood memory programming. If you have a Go-bag, this makes for the perfect Go-HT due to its versatility.
