The Kyodo KG209 series of portable transceivers are compact ruggedly constructed state of the art portable transceivers. They feature an electronically tuned front end and therefore have a wide switching bandwidth of 22 MHz on VHF bands and 35 MHz on UHF bands.

The KYODO KG209 is a 200 channel 3 Watt FM portable transceiver and is supplied with a multi-tone CTCSS encoder/decoder and the NH1100 1100 mAh rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride battery pack, a flexible whip antenna and operators manual. The KG209 portable radio is supplied with a 5 tone Selcall Encoder/Decoder, and a DTMF Encoder as standard equipment . The KYODO KG209 is available for all FM bands from 66 to 520 MHz.

CTCSS encoding/decoding and DCS encoding is provided with each radio. Any combination of CTCSS encoding/decoding or DCS encoding can be selected on a per channel basis.

The RF power output can be set to two levels between 1 and 4 watts (on UHF models & VHF High Band models) or 3 watts (on VHF mid band models) and is selected during programming on a per channel basis.

The KG209 portable transceiver is also provided with a voice encryption facility which can be selected during programming on a per channel basis. The KG209 portable transceiver is supplied in one of two versions. The version supplied with a 16 Key DTMF keypad will support DTMF encoding an DTMF decoding and 5 tone Selcall Encoding. If the 5 tone Selcall decoder is required, then DTMF decoding is not supported. The second version is supplied with 5 tone Selective Calling and has encoding and decoding capability.

The KG209 also includes features such as ANI, Memory calling, Emergency calling, Transmit Time Limiter, Power Down Timer, Voice Encryption, "Kill Mode", and a personal ID number (PIN). Thus purchasers of the Kyodo KG209 portable are purchasing a Made in Japan product with "state of the art technology" which will have a longer useful service life before the product becomes overtaken by technological advances.


The KG209 chassis and covers are constructed of die-cast aluminium while the battery section is housed in an ABS case. The replaceable Nickel Metal Hydride battery is constructed in a unique "L" shape which spreads the attaching load over two major areas thus reducing the likelihood of the battery becoming detached or breaking away from the radio section in the event of the complete radio being dropped onto a hard surface or under arduous use, while at the same time, permitting quick and easy exchange. The radio section is sealed with "O" rings to resist the ingress of dust and moisture.

Internally, the KG209 is constructed using miniature electronic Surface Mounting Technology components. Surface Mounted components are used throughout as their mass is much less than normal leaded components thus enhancing reliability and longevity. Additionally, the absence of troublesome leaded components and wires further enhance the reliability of the transceiver.

The antenna is attached by a TNC connector, and the user interface keys and knobs are conveniently located on the front and the top of the radio. It includes modern signalling facilities and is easily operated.

The KG209 can be supplied with a belt clip attachment enabling the user to easily carry the radio by attaching it to the users belt. (This must be specially ordered and cannot be used with the HDLC209 Leather Case).
