Stories & reviews

Excellent Radio

Kenwood TM-271A, Mobile VHF Transceiver

Easy to program, even without computer software. Rugged, water resistant (Orings on knobs, rubber seals on case cover, and plugs for the speaker jack). the radio preforms well in both FMW, and FMN modes. This radio also does FM narrow.
