I recently received a really nice R600 Kenwood.

It does not have the 13.8 volt jack installed. Anybody know if one is available or of a simple mod to allow 13.8 volt operation. Thanks

Hi Doug,

To my knowledge, the Kenwood R600 straight from the box runs only on AC power hence no DC jacks.

However, there is a DCK-1 accessory which is a DC cord kit for this receiver.

Alternately, the secondary output of the transformer is 14VAC which is feed to the bridge diode of the power supply on the PLL unit/board. With that in mind, it would then be OK to hardwire 13.8VDC right after the bridge diode and parallel to the big filter capacitor. It may be a good idea to put an inline reverse protection diode and a fuse. Of course any DC type of jack/plug combination/arrangement may also be used.

Additionally, you might be interested in a service manual for the Kenwood R600 which is available here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How can I program the Kenwood TM-G707 A/E transceiver to our new repeater with a REC. of 151.1225 TX of 159.015 with DPL of 172 and 134?


I believe that your transceiver requires a simple mod which involves removing a surface mount diode or resistor usually found in the front display head.This allows the device to operate out of the intended frequency band.You may Google Transceiver TM-G707 A/E Modific ations for further info.

Kenwood TS-820s almost dead


Dear Stigw1:

I have your answer for you. I have the same unit which had a few problems. Sent it to this fellow I'm about to tell you about who works on NOTHING but the Kenwood hybrids such as the ones we have. He is amazing. He'll take your TS-820S and literally bring it back to BRAND NEW condition for you, just like it left the factory. His general repair price is $229.00 (US dollars) plus parts. If he doesn't have the part(s), he'll actually make them!! My radio was shipped to him in Sept. of '08 and it's now in the mail back to me (Jan '09). You pay shipping both ways. Go to this website and check it out... http://wwwk4eaa.com . His name is: Ken Kemski, 3745 Allenwood St., Sarasota, Florida 34232 (USA). His work is worth the money all day long. If this helps you, PLEASE let me know. -- 73's -- Johnny Downing - muzicman1@aol.com Jan 2, 2009

Motorola and Kenwood compatibility....


Hello!! First of all, any radio in the right frequency will work with any other, to work just need the following features: -Frequency, 154.700 which is correct as you said. - the Squelch code, this could be PL or DPL. The XV2100 has a table of codes that you can try, as you dont know this code form the Kenwood, you will need to check one by one. If you have the chance to send the Kenwood to some to "Read" the radio parameters( freq.,Code, ETc) you can look those parameters on the XV. Hope this can help, any comments neto-rola@hotmail.com Good Luck
