MOBILE INSTALLATION
Select a safe, convenient location inside your vehicle that will minimize danger to your passengers and yourself while the vehicle is in motion. Consider installing the transceiver under the dash in front of the passenger seat so that knees or legs will not strike the radio during sudden braking of your vehicle. Try to a pick well-ventilated location that is shielded from direct sunlight.
Note: You may experience interference on your GPS receiver when using in or around 438.8 MHz (A band) and/or 443.8 MHz (B band). To eliminate the interference, ensure that the transceiver is installed at a location separate from your GPS receiver.
1 Install the mounting bracket in the vehicle using the supplied self-tapping screws and flat washers (4 of each are supplied).
The bracket can be mounted with the bracket opening facing down, for underdash mounting, or facing up. The bracket must be installed so that the 3 screw slots on the edge of each bracket side are facing the back. Self-tapping screw (5 x 16 mm) Flat washer
2 Position the transceiver, then insert and tighten the supplied hexagon SEMS screws and flat washers (4 of each are supplied, 2 for each side of the bracket).
Ensure that all hardware is tightened, to prevent vehicle vibration from loosening the bracket or transceiver.
SEMS screw (M4 x 10 mm) Set an appropriate angle for the main unit, using the 3 screw slots on the rear edge of each bracket side.

Power Cable Connection

n Mobile Operation
Be sure to use a 12 V vehicle battery that has sufficient current capacity. If the current to the transceiver is insufficient, the display may darken during transmission or the transmit output power may drop excessively. Never connect the transceiver to a 24 V battery
Note: If you use the transceiver for a long period when the vehicle battery is not fully charged or when the engine is OFF, the battery may become discharged and will not have sufficient reserves to start the vehicle. Avoid using the transceiver under these conditions.
1 Route the DC power cable supplied with the transceiver directly to the vehicles battery terminals using the shortest path from the transceiver.
When using a noise filter, it should be installed with an insulator to prevent it from touching metal on the vehicle. We do not recommend using a cigarette lighter socket as some cigarette lighter sockets introduce an unacceptable voltage drop. If the power cable must be routed through a hole in the vehicle chassis or body, for example in the firewall at the front of the passenger compartment, use a rubber grommet to protect the cable from abrasion. Dismantle the fuse holder to pass the cable through the firewall. The entire length of the cable must be dressed so it is isolated from heat, moisture, and the engine secondary (high voltage) ignition system/ cables.

2 After the cable is in place, wind heat-resistant tape around the fuse holder to protect it from moisture. Tie down the full run of cable. 3 To prevent the risk of short circuits, disconnect other wiring from the negative () battery terminal before connecting the transceiver. 4 Confirm the correct polarity of the connections, then attach the power cable to the battery terminals; red connects to the positive (+) terminal and black connects to the negative () terminal.
Use the full length of the cable without cutting off excess, even if the cable is longer than required. In particular, never remove the fuse holders from the cable.
5 Reconnect any wiring removed from the negative terminal. 6 Connect the DC power cable to the transceiver.
Press the connectors firmly together until the locking tab clicks. Engine compartment Fuse holder (E type) Black () cable Passenger compartment

n Fixed Station Operation
In order to use this transceiver for fixed station operation, you will need a separate 13.8 V DC power supply that must be purchased separately. The recommended current capacity of the power supply is 12 A.
Note: Do not plug the DC power supply into an AC outlet until you make all connections.
1 Ensure that the transceiver and DC power supply are both OFF. 2 Connect the DC power cable to the regulated DC power supply and ensure that the polarities are correct (Red: positive, Black: negative).
Use the supplied DC power cable to connect the transceiver to a regulated power supply. Do not directly connect the transceiver to an AC outlet. Do not substitute the cable with smaller gauge wires.
3 Connect the DC power cable to the transceiver.
Press the connectors firmly together until the locking tab clicks.
Note: For your transceiver to fully exhibit its performance capabilities, we recommend using an optional PS-33 (20.5 A, 25% duty cycle) power supply.

OPERATING THROUGH REPEATERS
Repeaters are often installed and maintained by radio clubs, sometimes with the cooperation of local businesses involved in the communications industry. Compared to simplex communication, you can usually transmit over much greater distances by using a repeater. Repeaters are typically located on mountain tops or other elevated locations. They generally operate at higher ERP (Effective Radiated Power) than a typical station. This combination of elevation and high ERP allows communications over considerable distances.
TX: 144.725 MHz TX tone: 88.5 Hz RX: 145.325 MHz

Repeater Access

Most repeaters use a receive and transmit frequency pair with a standard or non-standard offset (odd-split). In addition, some repeaters must receive a tone from the transceiver in order to gain access to the repeater. For details, consult your local repeater reference.
n Selecting an Offset Direction
The offset direction allows your transmit frequency to be higher (+) or lower () than the receive frequency. 1 Select your desired band (A or B). 2 Press [F], [REV] to select an offset direction.
Each time you press [F], [REV], the offset direction changes as follows: Simplex operation >> + >> >> Simplex operation
If you are using an E type transceiver, when operating on the 430 MHz band, the offset direction changes as follows: Simplex operation >> + >> >> = (7.6 MHz) >> Simplex operation
If the offset transmit frequency falls outside the allowable range, transmitting is inhibited. Use one of the following methods to bring the transmit frequency within the band limits:
Move the receive frequency further inside the band. Change the offset direction.
Note: While using an odd-split memory channel or transmitting, you cannot change the offset direction.
n Selecting an Offset Frequency
The offset frequency is the value which the transmit frequency will be offset from the receive frequency. The default offset frequency on the 144 MHz band is 600 kHz for all type versions. The default on the 430/440 MHz band is 5 MHz. 1 Select your desired band (A or B). 2 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 400 (OFFSET) {page 20}.

3 Set the appropriate offset frequency value.
The selectable range is from 00.00 MHz to 29.95 MHz, in steps of 50 kHz.
Note: After changing the offset frequency, the new offset frequency will also be used by Automatic Repeater Offset {page 29}.

Transmitting a 1750 Hz Tone
Most repeaters in Europe require that a transceiver transmit a 1750 Hz tone. By turning the 1750 Hz tone menu item ON, the transceiver will automatically transmit the 1750 Hz tone for 2 seconds whenever you transmit. 1 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 402 (1750.HD) {page 20}.
2 Set the tone to ON or OFF.
When set to ON, the 1750 Hz tone will transmit. When set to OFF, the tone will not be transmitted.

REVERSE FUNCTION

After setting a separate receive and transmit frequency, you can exchange these frequencies using the Reverse function. This allows you to manually check the strength of signals you receive directly from other stations, while using a repeater. If the stations signal is strong, move to a simplex frequency to continue the contact and free up the repeater. Press [REV] to turn the Reverse function ON or OFF.
When the Reverse function is ON, the icon will appear on the display.
Note: u If the transmit frequency is outside the allowable transmit frequency range when using Reverse, pressing [PTT] will cause an error tone to sound and transmission will be inhibited. u If the receive frequency is outside the receive frequency range when using Reverse, an error tone will sound and Reverse will not operate. u The ARO (Automatic Repeater Offset) will not function when Reverse is ON. u You cannot switch Reverse ON or OFF while transmitting.
Automatic Simplex Checker (ASC)
While using a repeater, ASC periodically monitors the strength of signals you receive directly from the other stations. If the stations signal is strong enough to allow direct contact without a repeater, the icon blinks. Press [REV] (1s) to turn the ASC ON.

When the ASC is ON, the

EchoLink

What is EchoLink?
EchoLink allows you to communicate with other amateur radio stations over the internet, using VoIP (voice-over-IP) technology. The EchoLink software program allows worldwide connections to be made between stations, or from computer to station, greatly enhancing your communications capabilities. To use EchoLink, you must register using your call sign on their website and download the EchoLink software program (free of charge). Refer to the website for PC hardware and other requirements. Official EchoLink Website: http://www.echolink.org
Note: EchoLink is a registered trademark of Synergenics, LLC.

Storing EchoLink memory

There are 10 dedicated EchoLink DTMF Memory channels available to store DTMF codes. You can store up to 8 digits in each channel. 1 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 204 (ELK.MEM) {page 20}.

2 Rotate the Tuning control to select an EchoLink channel number from EL0 ~ EL9. 3 Press the Tuning control to set the selected channel number.
4 Enter the name for the channel {page 24}, then press the Tuning control to set it.
nTransmitting EchoLink Memory
1 Select the band and frequency of the node to which you want to connect. 2 Press and hold the microphone [PTT]. 3 While transmitting, press the Tuning control.
The last called EchoLink DTMF Memory channel name and number appears on the display.
4 While still transmitting, rotate the Tuning control to select your desired EchoLink Memory channel, then press the Tuning control to set the channel.
The stored code scrolls across the display and is transmitted. The code will be transmitted even if you release [PTT] before the entire code has scrolled across the display. When only a name has been stored, the DTMF code for that name appears on the display. The Call Sign code is automatically preceeded with a C and ends with a #. DTMF values are listed in the following table: 1 Q Z A B D E G H J K M N P R T U W X 0 0
C F I L O S V Y 3 So, for example, if the Call Sign being transmitted was JA1YKX, the display would read: C # However, if characters other than letters or numbers are used (such as a hypen of a space), only the DTMF code for characters before that non-regular character are displayed. All subsequent characters will not appear on the display. If no data is stored in the selected channel, the frequency display is restored.
nSelecting a Transmit Speed
Some repeaters may not respond correctly if a code is transmitted at fast speed. If this happens, change the EchoLink transmission speed from FAST (default) to SLOW. 1 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 205 (ELK.SPD) {page 20}.
Setting Up EchoLink Sysop MODE
When connected to a PC, you can set whether or not to use the RTS and CTS terminals for hard flow control, or the SQC and PKS terminals for EchoLink. The action band is the data band (Menu 517(DAT.BND)). 1 Turn the transceiver power OFF. 2 Press [PF2] + Power ON to turn EchoLink Sysop Mode ON.
The icon appears on the display when EchoLink Sysop mode is ON.
To turn EchoLink Sysop Mode OFF, press [PF2] + Power ON again.

EchoLink Sysop Mode OFF TM-V71 TxD RxD RTS CTS GND > < > < <> PC RxD TxD CTS RTS GND
Note: u When in EchoLink Sysop mode, you cannot change to Repeater mode or Remote Control mode. Additionally, you cannot use the MCP-2A (memory control program) software. u We recommend you set Menu 520s SQC output setting to SQL when using EchoLink Sysop mode.

AUXILIARY FUNCTIONS

POWER-ON MESSAGE
Each time you switch the transceiver ON, HELLO (default) appears on the display for approximately 2 seconds. You can program your favorite message in place of the default message. 1 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 500 (P.ON.MSG) {page 20}.

2 Set your desired function for the key. Programmable functions available are: WX CH (Weather Channel)/ FR.BAND (Frequency bands)/ CTRL (Control)/ MONI (Monitor)/ VGS (Voice recorder)/ VOICE (Voice announcement)/ GRP.UP (Memory group up)/ MENU (Menu mode)/ MUTE (Speaker Mute)/ SHIFT (Shift)/ DUAL (Dual Mode)/ M>V (Memory to VFO Copy)/ VFO/ MR/ CALL/ MHz/ TONE/ REV (Reverse)/ LOW/ LOCK/ A/B (Band Select A/ Band Select B)/ ENTER/ 1750 (1750 Hz Tone).

Frequency Direct Entry

If the desired operating frequency is far from the current frequency, using the microphone keypad is the quickest way to change the frequency. One of the microphone PF keys must first be programmed as ENTER {page 66}, 1 Press the left or right [BAND SEL] to select band A or B, then press [VFO] or [CALL]. 2 Press the key programmed as [ENTER].
The Direct Frequency Entry display appears.
3 Press the microphone keys ([0] ~ [9]) to enter your desired frequency. 4 To set the entered frequency, press [ENTER] or [VFO].
Pressing [ENTER] before entering all of the digits will set the remaining digits to 0. Pressing [VFO] before entering all of the digits will leave the remaining digits at their previous values. Entering all digits for a frequency will automatically set the frequency without pressing [ENTER] or [VFO]. If you need to only change the MHz digit, press the Tuning control, then enter the new value.
AUTOMATIC POWER OFF (APO)
Automatic Power Off is a background function that monitors whether or not any operations have been performed (keys pressed, Tuning control turned, etc.), and turns the transceiver power OFF if it has not been in use. 1 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 516 (APO) {page 20}.
2 Set the APO time limit to 30, 60, 90, 120, 180 minutes, or OFF.
After the time limit passes with no operations (default is 180 minutes), APO turns the transceiver power OFF. However, 1 minute before the power turns OFF, APO appears on the display and blinks, and a warning tone sounds.
Note: If any settings are changed during while APO is ON, the timer resets. When you stop changing the settings, the timer begins counting again from 0.

S-Meter Squelch

S-meter Squelch causes the squelch to open only when a signal with the same or greater strength than the S-meter setting is received. This function relieves you from constantly resetting the squelch when receiving weak stations that you have no interest in. 1 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 105 (S.SQL) {page 20}.
2 Set the S-Meter squelch to ON or OFF. 3 To select the desired S-meter setting, rotate the left (band A) or right (band B) SQL control depending on which band you have selected.

2 Set the PC port speed to 9600, 19200, 38400, or 57600 bps.
Turning the power ON/OFF will change the port speed setting.

SQC Output Setting

You can set the condition for which the SQC output terminal becomes active. 1 Enter Menu mode and access Menu 520 (SQC.SRC) {page 20}.
2 Set the SQC output activation method to one of the following:
OFF: SQC output remains inactive. BUSY: When a signal is received on the data band, the SQC output becomes active. SQL: While CTCSS/DCS is ON and a matching signal is received, the SQC output becomes active. While CTCSS/DCS is OFF, the SQC output becomes active when a busy signal is received. TX: While transmitting, the SQC output becomes active. BUSY.TX: When the conditions of BUSY and TX (above) are met, the SQC output becomes active. SQL.TX: When the conditions of SQL and TX (above) are met, the SQC output becomes active.
Note: The activation type (logic) can be changed using the MCP-2A software.
WIRELESS OPERATION (K TYPE MODELS ONLY)
If you also have a compatible Kenwood handy transceiver, you may use it as a remote control for this mobile transceiver. You will control one band on the mobile while sending DTMF tones to the other band from the handheld. This function is useful, for example, when you want to control the mobile from a location outside your vehicle.
Note: u As a remote control, you can also use a handy transceiver which does not have a remote control function but a DTMF function. However, you must manually send DTMF tones for control code strings. Skip steps 1 and 3 in PREPARATION. u The FCC rules permit you to send control codes only on the 440 MHz band.
Let us assume band A (VHF) of the mobile transceiver will be controlled. On the handy transceiver: 1 Program a 3-digit secret number.
For the programming method, see the instruction manual for the handheld.
2 Select the transmit frequency on the UHF band. 3 Make the handheld enter Remote Control mode.
For the method, see the instruction manual for the handheld. If not described, consult your dealer.
