INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing this KENWOOD Private Mobile
Radio 446 (PMR446). This KENWOOD product is a precision
device. Treat it with care, and you will enjoy years of reliable
operation.
PMR446 refers to personal short range Private Mobile Radios
for family and friends to keep in touch without the need for a
licence, radio knowledge, or monthly charges. Your
KENWOOD PMR446 is called a “transceiver”, meaning
transmitter and receiver.
You can choose from eight preset channels to communicate
with others. For your convenience, Automatic Squelch quiets
your transceiver when you are not receiving calls and Group
Mode keeps your transceiver quiet except for calls you want to
hear. For your privacy, Secret Mode encrypts your messages
so you can talk with your group members without having
others listen in on your conversation.
Your transceiver provides safety and convenience almost
anywhere. The talk range depends on your location; you’ll get
maximum distance of up to approximately 3.2 km (2 miles) in
open areas, less in buildings and vehicles.
Information KENWOOD is on the web: http://www.kenwood.com/
SUPPLIED ACCESSORIES

SECRET MODE
Whereas the Group Mode function (page 10) allows you to
ignore unwanted calls, Secret Mode allows you to hold a
conversation in complete privacy. When activated, any other
party listening in on your channel will be unable to understand
your conversation. The transceiver scrambles your voice so
that anybody listening in on your conversation will not be able
to understand what you are saying.
In order for members of your own group to understand your
call while you are using Secret Mode, all other members must
also activate Secret Mode on their transceivers. This
scrambles everybody’s voice while transmitting and
unscrambles the voice message on your own transceiver
when you receive the message.
Note: In order to enter Secret Mode, you must also select a Group
Mode number. If you have not selected a Group Mode number, do so
before following the instructions given below.

channels to search for a signal. When the transceiver verifies
a signal on a channel, it proceeds to check whether or not its
Group Mode number matches that which is set up on your
transceiver. (Auto Channel Select will not operate if no Group
Mode number is selected.) If the Group Mode number
matches, the transceiver stops at the channel and opens the
squelch so you can listen to the call. If the Group Mode
number does not match, the call is ignored and scanning
continues.

VOICE ACTIVATED CONTROL (VOX)
Using the VOX feature, you can operate the transceiver
hands-free. For best operating conditions, we recommend
you use an optional headset with both an ear piece and a
microphone on a boom that rests in front of your mouth.
With VOX activated, your voice level will determine when the
transceiver transmits. Because of this, you must take care
that the ambient noise around you is not so loud that it causes
the transceiver to transmit. Due to the automatic switching
between transmission and reception, we recommend you set
the VOX gain such that it will not activate transmission when
in an area with excessive ambient noise.
Before VOX will operate, you must set a VOX Gain Level:
1
Enter the Menu Settings (page 12) and
press the ▲ or ▼ key until you reach the
“VOX” display.
2
key to set the VOX Gain
Press the
Level ( ) from 1 to 3, where 3 is the most

02.11.20, 9:44 AM
When operating VOX, if you find that the transceiver returns
to receive mode too quickly after you stop speaking, the end
of your message may not be transmitted. To avoid this, select
an appropriate delay time to allow your entire message to be
transmitted. However, do not make the delay overly long.

SQUELCH
When no signals are present, the squelch on the transceiver
automatically mutes the speaker so you will not hear
background noise. You can however, deactivate the squelch.
This feature is useful for a variety of reasons:
•
It allows you to confirm the channel activity so that you
don’t make a call while another party is using the same
channel.
•
It allows you to adjust the volume level without having to
wait for a call.
•
When receiving a call that is intermittent due to a weak
signal, disabling the squelch will allow you to listen to the
call without it continuously cutting out.

TRANSMIT POWER SAVER
The purpose of the Transmit Power Saver is to prevent you
from transmitting continuously for a long time. This function is
useful, for example, when you accidentally keep the PTT
switch pressed.
If you continuously transmit for 3 minutes, the transceiver will
stop transmitting and a tone will sound. To stop the tone,
release the PTT switch. You can press the PTT switch again
to resume transmitting. The 3 minute timer cannot be
adjusted.
This transceiver is also equipped with a visual
warning, 30 seconds before the Transmit
Power Saver time expires, and a pre-alert
tone which sounds 10 seconds before the
time expires. This will allow you to finish your
message before the transceiver automatically
stops transmitting. Thirty seconds before the
time expires, the number 30 will appear and
blink on the display in place of your Group
Mode number. Ten seconds before the time
expires, a tone will sound.
BATTERY SAVER
This transceiver has been designed to give you the most out
of your battery power. The battery saver decreases the
amount of power used when a signal is not being received
and no operations are being performed.
While using the transceiver, the battery saver will
automatically switch ON after 5 seconds have elapsed with no
operations or received calls. Operating the transceiver or
receiving a call will switch the feature OFF until 5 seconds of
non-operation occurs again.
