    Default PMR frequencies Kenwood TK-3301

    Good afternoon

    I work in the Security industry and we use PMR radios specifically Kenwood TK-3301. I have bought a little cheap radio a Baofeng UV-B5 to have my own personal radio which I can take with me on tasks which I know won't have a missing belt clip or half an antenna due to misuse.

    I would like to tune this little Baofeng into the PMR Kenwood frequency channels 1 to 16. I have a basic understanding of UHF/VHF and programming radios with my interest in ham in another life. I am aware I will be able to find and listen only to these channels but will not be able to transmit until I match the CTCC code

    My question is would any member have the actual frequency chart for the Kenwood TK-3301 channels 1 to 16 including CTCC codes, I have tried searching but with no luck

    Many thanks in advance

    The actual frequencies programmed into the positions numbered 1 to 16 would depend on the frequencies set out in your licence so that's where you need to look. The 1-16 are just numbered memories on the handset.

    I hope that helps.

    You can download the manual for the Kenwood - it does seem to show various tones. Just Google kenwood tk-3301 .

    Wouldn't let me send my last post must be due to the link. I found the freq and codes but can't work out what QT/DQT setting refers to on the Baofeng Thanks

    Ah, gotcha. When you said PMR I thought you meant general PMR.
    So, PMR446 frequencies are all over the Web (note the interesting 6,25kHz step/offset) so that should be fine. The CTCSS tones you need will depend on the radio's settings as this is how PMR446 mediates access when there are so few frequencies available.

    From memory, there are 8 tones in general use for analogue PMR446 and the Wikipedia page on the system lists the tones in general use. DPMR446 is a different kettle of tuna.

    I want to program Chanel 5 4 446.04375 17 118.8 Hz in my Baofeng UV-5R with the software CHIRP.

    Unfortunately i am not successful. The Squelch doesn't work at all.

    Here are the settings i am using in CHIRP:

    Tone Mode: TSQL
    Tone 118.8
    ToneSql: 118.8
    DTCS Rx Pol: NN
    Cross Mode: Tone > Tone
    Offset: 0.00265
    Duplex: +
    Mode: FM


    Can somebody help me ?

    Hello Maunty,

    First you should have opened a new thread on your Baofeng Programming problem not adding it to a Kenwood Radio problem. Second the Frequency you chose being a Splinter RF Channel 446.04375 MHz is on an Input Frequency with 70 cm Band Plan and third you want an Odd Ball Offset being 0.00365 Plus Shift, these Baofeng handhelds are unable to do this function, in fact I don't know of any Analog FM or Digital Transceiver that is capable of this kind of Offset. I'm unsure whether you meant 440.00365 or 3.650 KHz which still doesn't make sense.
