My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. Your name or email address: One of these repeaters is 56 miles away and I work it full quieting when I’m outside. Thanks, will do just that.
A non-ham friend of mine had two large bins of radios that he did not want to store. It extends the memory capabilities from 40 channels to ! Inif the radio cannot meet narrow band specs. I haven’t determined if the radio transmits on the aircraft band yet. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions about Reviews, please email your Reviews Manager.
When I hooked the 28 up to my watt meter an output of 9 watts was shown on MHz and only 3 watts at Kenwood isn’t the only manufacturer who fails in this regard though. I visited a local pawn shop the other day looking for old Nintendo NES games with my step son. I’m able to program 24 ham frequencies and the program of our 16 channel P.
I’m giving it a 4 anyway because I can tell from examining it that it’s well made and will be a good radio. Checked the mem support batt, and it was 1. Just what is the technical name for those “memory support batteries”?? While we didn’t find any games, I noticed this sweet little radio in the midst of some FRS radios and other scanners.
I can’t get any sound out of it at all.
It was complete with manual and also has an extra antenna, speaker mic and car charger cable with it. Now that I know how it works it’s ok but that’s one of the quirks I guess. Unfortunately it is mute. I was at a hamfest yesterday and found this radio in the original box with most of the ancillary pieces still in their original plastic bags.

I thought this may have resulted because of the stock triple band antenna I use on the TH-F6A, but when I placed the THA’s 2m antenna on the 6 it still could not key up the distant repeaters the 28 could. From my apartment I can hit most of the good repeaters with mW. I’ll probably watch for another one and pick it up and have this for spare parts. It has a solid feel to it with no part of it appearing cheap or flimsy like some of the plasticy radios.
I did a search on the A and mysterious beeping, but no luck. I’m not sure if it is capable of “narrow band” 6.

With the lower capacity batteries the 28 is not that much large than the 6, except in depth, a little more than twice that of the 6. I have no idea what the voltage drop would be to render it used up; age alone is enough. The batt is original, I’m sure.
I think the one in my THA is a Panasonic? The manual isn’t as clear as some I’ve read. It also doesn’t light the on air light when I press the PTT switch. All in all, it’s a cute little radio that should satisfy anyone!
Do these mem-support type lithiums have a nominal 1. This one had been modified to extend its range to MHz.

It seems to be very well made. It still has the stock antenna BNCwhich is rather scratched up, but it works great. I can hit my local repeaters and it even picks up airband from the airport about 10mi away as long as I am not in a building. My normally reliable THA has gone psychotic, I’m afraid Unfortunately channel changing on the 28 is performed with a dial, so you can’t change channels on the mike.

I really like this radio and it fit a need of mine that I had not expected to fill. Register for a free QRZ account.
Mine came with a AAA battery case, a 12V charger, wall wart, and a desktop charger. Channel spacing options include 5 and One of the other buying points for me was the fact that I can use 6xAA batteries in the BT-8 battery case and it puts out 3W! I’m sure some would consider that a drawback but to me it adds to the feel of quality in the same way it does on my W32A.
