Question about Kenwood -TK2100-2140-2160-2200-3100-3130-3131-3140-3160-3200-260-270-272-360-370-372-373 Comp... 2-Way Radio
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
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.
