Question about Kenwood FreeTalk XL TK-3101 (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

FreeTalk 3131 compatible with proTalk radios?

Hi,

my friends operate Kenwood 3131XLS radios with their Autocom motorcycle systems. I also bought an Autocom and would like to know if I can buy any of the new ProTalk radios to communicate with the older FreeTalk radios.

Do the ProTalk radios support GMRS or FRS?

Thanks
Christian

Hello Christian,

Some of the Kenwood ProTalk series radios may be programmable by the dealer to operate in the 462-468 MHz range used by GMRS and FRS radios. However the radios are not FCC approved for those channels and do not comply with requirements for FRS and GMRS radio equipment.

You are going to be better served by picking up a FreeTalk 3131XLS like your friends have. In terms of style and features this radios is very similar to the ProTalk but is type approved for use on GMRS.

Best Regards,
Ken

GMRS operation is only legal on the fifteen frequency channels which are designed into the unit. What makes you think that there are hidden frequencies?

Kenwood tk 3131 , used , good shape-- how do I reprogram back to GMRS channels only?


Hi Carter,

All is good for you here, the answer is yes to cloning, but you will need the software and cables to do so, if you haven't already got this.

If you do require software and cables, ebay is the best and often cheapest way of getting this gear. look under Electronics, Radios, and follow the links to Parts & accessories.

Failing that, join yahoo group SPECIFIC to you radio Make/Model, the expert team there will give you all the info you need, plus you can download manuals, schematics and software free.

I hope this is the news you've been waiting for.

Cheers,
Peter

INTERFERANCE WITH KENWOOD YK3101 TRANSMISSION.


If you are replacing radios and connecting them to your bike and it is doing the same thing. Its not your radio, it is something else. I am not familiar with this autocom gizmo you talking about, but if you take your radio and it works on another bike, then that should tell you its not your radio as well. I suspect this AUTOCOM thing is the culprit

Look at the user manuals for both radios and compare the frequency assignment for each channel. find the ones that match and program the radios to talk to each other.

Kenwood TK-3101 is sensitive to Motorcycle RF


After a lot of experimenting, I decided to try powering the Autocom with a 9v battery and that fixed the issue. Evidently, the power from the bike was dirty - I'll have to filter the power line, find a different place to tap into or remain battery powered.
