Post by AMR » Fri Nov 05, 2004 3:27 am

I have 20 kenwood tk 840 and i have the software and the cable and the frequencies -2 of them from the fcc- i also know that i am a narrow band but i put the frequencies in the radio and nothing happens i can't transmitt but i hear people that share the frequency talk every once in a while. so my question does anyone know how to get a programing manual or tell me how to program even just one of these radios beside how to set up the qt/dqt list. thank you guys so much. Please feel free to add any information you think it is helpful for me. thanks

Do you still have the information on programming the Kenwood TK-840?

If so, could you send me a copy of the information?

How to get out-of-band on Kenwood TK840 using KPG-25D software:

To get the 840 out of band, open the software, hit the "alt" key, then move
over under "model". You then select number 3, which says "tk-840". It then
asks you if it is an "F1", which is 450-488, "F2" which is 482-520, "F3",
which is 403-430, then at the bottom of that window it has "Sp: 403-520". SP
means "Special tune", and with that you can program anything between 403-520,
but may have to set the VCO a little. I used to have an 840, and had ham and
biz freqs in it with no retuning.
