    Great Radio

    Posted by Toni B. on Jan 3rd 2019

    I have always been happy with products built and sold by Kenwood and these 2-way radios are no exception. Good clarity, good distance and just the right size. Highly recommend. We currently have the TK3230 and wanted to move over to digital and this is the perfect radio. They work with our older models.
