    Default dual head radios

    recently Motorola stopped making 100w dual head low band radio...we are in the process of specing out a new truck and have been unable to find any other manufacture who makes a dual head radio. is our only option to pull the old radio out of the old truck or does anyone know if Kenwood or someone else is making a similar radio.

    Kenwood makes them, dual remote heads, 110 watts, TK690 29.7-36mhz. I just ordered one for our tanker and they are coming to install it on Monday. Get ready, about $1,100 for control unit & $500 for each remote head, + remote mic. setups + installation.

    There is the high split of low band for the TK-690 as well so you can do 45/46 Mhz too. It is the most bullet proof indestructable radio ever made. You can blast it with a deck gun and it will still work. Its what we use for everything.

    Mooseman, shoot me a pm. I am actually pulling all of the dual head Kenwood's out of our apparatus this week.

    I have 33.xxx, 46.xxx, 154.xxx, 450.xxx all capable of dual head, and all are remote head.

    You will need:

    (1) T690HK (radio chassis)
    (1) 90 series dual-head kit
    (2) 90 series control heads (full feature or small display w/ a speaker)
    (2) 90 series control head mounts.
