Kenwood Radios are Synonymous With Quality

You need a quality two-way radio for your business.

Note the key word there: "quality."

Sure, you could go out and find the cheapest walkie talkie on the market, buy it with no research, and hope for the best. But the end result of that is going to be frustration, failure, and probably chucking the thing into a wall.

Skip the frustration you'll get from generic, no-name brands, and get your staff a reliable Kenwood Radio.

But before you do that, make sure you know what you need. While Kenwood radios rock, not every model is right for every business.

Don’t worry. You’re in the right place. You’ve arrived at the internet’s premiere Kenwood Radio resource page, and we’re going to find a radio that will meet your company’s specific needs.

With Kenwood, you’re getting the latest features and innovations available throughout the walkie talkie world at a price that won't break the bank.

Also, you’re not going to chuck it into a wall. So, another win.

The JVC Kenwood Corporation has a list of products that includes both UHF and VHF radios.

TLDR: UHF radios perform well in areas with obstructions, covering indoor and outdoor settings. VHF products do well in large open outdoor areas.

At the end of the day, anyone who tells you that they have the magical “one size fits all” device that will work for any business is a big old liar.

The truth is that these devices were made for specific industries. So when you purchase the first radio with an appealing price you run the risk of getting something that’s not powerful enough, or is way more powerful than you actually need.

Buying a radio is like buying a suit. It has to be custom fitted to your specific business needs. Consider us your friendly neighborhood radio tailors, specializing in the best of the best in Kenwood radio products. Now hold onto this metaphorical measuring tape and let’s get you what you need!

Kenwood NX-P500 

The NX-P500 is a UHF radio, which means that it is particularly powerful with indoor communication.  UHF radio waves have an easier time moving around obstructions both inside and outside. Most businesses that require indoor and outdoor communication will find success with UHF. 

This particular unit features six channels, which means you can segment your staff into different groups. This helps to streamline communication so the bulk of your employees can focus on work without having to listen to messages that have nothing to do with them. 

The Kenwood NX-P500 is also waterproof and weighs only 5.6 ounces. 

While that's not the lightest radio we feature, it is still a very manageable weight and would also work well in an outdoor setting where weather may be a factor. 

In other words, it’s light and it’s not going to break in the rain. 

When it comes to range, the Kenwood NX-P500 is reliable across 20 floors and 100,000 square feet. That means most small to midsize businesses won’t have to chuck it into a wall.  Its outdoor range has reliable communication for up to two miles. While that wouldn't be ideal for something like a massive theme park, it could be perfectly acceptable on a construction site

Despite its size, the NX-P500 has a two-watt maximum transmission, meaning it’s perfect for open spaces and noisy areas alike.  It comes equipped with military standard hardware. On top of being waterproof, it also protects against immersion and dust. These things can take a beating (and a bathing) and keep on trucking. 

This device features programmable customized software, so it's possible to alter its capabilities to suit your purposes. Adaptability is important when dealing with a radio. The more customizable the device, the more likely it is to serve your specific needs.  Wireless cloning is also quick and easy. That means you only have to program one radio. Then, you essentially clone the programming of that device to your other devices. That’s going to save you a lot of time. 

In conclusion, the Kenwood NX-P500 is one of our best "all-rounders," delivering good range and a durable but still lightweight radio perfect for many business types.

Kenwood TK-2360-ISV16P 

The Kenwood TK-2360-ISV16P is a VHF product. That means much like a football, it's not a great idea to use it indoors.  It is, however, an intrinsically safe radio, meaning it may be used in environments where certain types of gasses or explosives may be present, like construction sites.  Since VHF waves are effective over large outdoor areas, this is a device that performs well in most large parks, construction sites, and mining operations. 

The TK-2360-ISV16P has 16 channels and a maximum of five watts of power.  That means you can segment your staff into 16 different groups and communicate with them over large distances.  So you have a device that is ideal for a large workforce while also packing some serious range.  This radio provides reliable outdoor communication for up to three miles with an indoor range of 200,000 square feet. However, again, this device is not intended for indoor use.

The TK-2360-ISV16P uses a lithium-ion battery and comes with a number of accessories, including a spring-action belt clip that will help your employees safely carry it around on their shifts. Lithium-ion batteries are valued for their impressive lifespan.  They’re used in a number of devices that absolutely need to last, like electric vehicles and motorized wheelchairs.  Its limited energy output (both thermal and electrical), means that the Kenwood TK-2360-ISV16P won't ignite when faced with elements like flammable gas, vapors, or liquids.  The ability to not explode is a pro for any device. 

This radio's channels can also be manually limited using a color-coded channel stopper. The side keys are also programmable with hold functions. It’s incredibly customizable and can be configured to suit your needs.  On top of that, the Aux key can be programmed for emergency use and will transmit an alert to a person or group when an emergency arises.  Workers in hazardous areas are safer with the TK-2360-ISV16P.  It features a lone worker alert, which sounds an alert at a predetermined time lapse. If the user doesn't respond to the signal, the device will place an emergency call.
