Kenwood and 900MHz
KW902.com was created because I felt there was a need to have accurate, informative information on the several Kenwood radio models that cover 900MHz. This site will cover all topics relating to the 900MHz commercial line of Kenwood LMR for amateur use. It is my belief that the Kenwood LMR line of 900MHz radios are far superior to anything else on the market today.
Having gotten into 900MHz in early 2005 and finding that there was a plethora of info out there on Motorola but not too much on Kenwood I decided to do something to help the amateur community.....5 years later in 2010; so along came the 900MHz Kenwood pages.
The info presented on this site was compiled from my own personal experimentation with Kenwood 900MHz LMR radios as well as info that was passed along from Gene, W7UVH. Gene had accured 50+ years of radio know-how and had a wealth of knowledge with regard to Kenwood and radio in general. In March of 2012 Gene passed away and he will be greatly missed by many. He was a friend and a mentor to me, as well as others.
