Compact Design

Compact enough to carry anywhere with ease, this smart new radio has a distinctively ergonomic form that's handy to hold and operate.

Enhanced KENWOOD Audio

The TK-2170/3170 provides loud, clear audio even in noisy environments.

128 Channels / 128 Zones

The convenient 128 channel/128 zone capability accommodates virtually any current or future capacity requirement for single or multiple site radio systems.

8-Character LCD Display

The backlit LCD with 8-character, 13 segment aliases and icons provides an easy-to-read channel, function and FleetSync® messaging display day or night.

Battery Status Indicator

For extra convenience, a 4-step battery status indicator notifies the user immediately of the amount of charge remaining by visual indication (icons) or tone alert.

Robust & Reliable

The TK-2170/3170 is built to survive the hard knocks, drops and all weather environments of its users. It meets or exceeds the stringent IP54/55 dust and water intrusion standards and the MILSTD 810 C, D, E & F environmental standards including the demanding "driven rain" test.
* MIL-STD/IP54/55 compatibility requires use of the terminal cover supplied with the SP-Mic.

FleetSync®:PTT ID, Selcall & Emergency

Kenwood's FleetSync® digital signalling system includes PTT ID digital ANI for instant radio call identification and Emergency status for personnel safety. FleetSync® also includes status messaging, selective calling and short/long text dispatch messaging features. Emergency Calling notifies a dispatcher of personnel in distress by activation of an orange colored emergency key.

QT/DQT,DTMF & 2-Tone Signalling

In addition to FleetSync® , the TK-2170/3170 includes industry standard signalling formats: QT/DQT, 2-Tone (encode/decode) can be utilized for talk groups, system access and selective calling. DTMF permits DTMF PTT ID, telephone interconnect operation, individual/group selective calling and remote radio disable/enable (remote stun).


Multi-channel call monitoring can be customized for users with single/multi-zone scan and delete/add scan features. Priority Scan automatically checks a primary channel for activity while receiving a call on a non-priority channel. Convenience features such as Priority-channel Stop Tone, Temporary Delete, and Revert Channel Display facilitate userfriendly operation and eliminate confusion.

Wide Battery Selection

The TK-2170/3170 offers a lightweight Li-Ion battery (KNB-24L/35L), ideal for low-temperature environments; a durable Ni-Cd battery (KNB-25A); and a powerful Ni-MH battery (KNB-26N) for extra-long life.

Voice Inversion Scrambler

The built-in voice inversion scrambler provides basic protection against casual eavesdropping.

Easy Option Port (20-PIN)

Kenwood's plug-in option port makes the compatible after-market board installation quick and simple.
