The distinctive TM-742A/E (2 m/70 cm) is a high-performance FM multibander
that demonstrates the very best in mobile transceiver technology. Besides
offering triple receive and display capabilities, it can even receive three
bands simultaneously (requires optional band units). And you can mount the
controls and display separately (with an optional kit) for unique 3-way
Features at a glance:
||2 m/70 cm dual-band operation
||Tri-band operation with optional FM band units
||101 memory channels per band
||Detachable display and control panels (option)
TM-742A/E in detail:
Triple receive function with triple display
The TM-742A/E has a maximum output of 50 watts (2 m) and 35 watts (70 cm).
There are also four optional FM band units -- 10 m (50 watts), 6 m (50 watts),
1.25 m (25 watts)*, 70 cm (35 watts), and 23 cm (10 watts) -- to endow the
TM-742A/E with tri-band status. For low-power operations, there are 5- and
10-watt settings (1 W with the 23-cm band unit).
*Not available in Europe
Detachable front panel kit (option)
Using the optional DFK-4 or DFK-7 cable kit, the main unit can be installed
in the trunk. And all three kits (DFK-3, DFK-4 & DFK-7) allow the display
and controls to be mounted separately -- on either side of the steering
wheel, for example.
Built-in DTSS selective calling with pager
The built-in Dual-Tone Selective Squelch (DTSS) allows DTMF access to the
transceiver, meaning that the squelch is opened only when a specific 3-digit
code is received. Also, a page function alerts the you to incoming calls
and opens the squelch if the receiver has been programmed to accept a certain
DTMF tone group.
101 memory channels & memory bank system
For each band, there are 100 memory channels-divided into 5 banks-plus 1
call channel. These store frequency, tone frequency, tone status, CTCSS
status, STEP, SHIFT, REV, DTSS and DTSS code data. Each channel can store
transmit and receive frequencies independently for odd split repeaters.
Also, adjacent memory banks may be linked, and the amount of memory used
in each bank is displayed.
Flexible scan and scan stop modes
In addition to full band and programmable band scans, there is memory scan
with programmable memory channel lock-out, single memory bank scan, MHz
scan (scans a 1 MHz range), and auto memory scan (memorizes the frequencies
of busy channels), as well as C/V/M, C/V and C/M scans which alternately
scan between the call channel and the last frequency (VFO and/or memory).
Scan stop modes include TO (stops on a busy channel for 5 seconds, then
resumes), and CO (stops on a busy channel and resumes scan 2 seconds after
the signal drops out).
Tone alert system with elapsed time indicator
The tone alert system can be activated independently for each band. Elapsed
time (up to 59 hours 59 minutes) and the number of calls (up to 15) also
appear on the display.
Rapid response is assured by independent SQL and VOL controls for each band.
The VOL knobs also function as band select keys, while the three LEDs double
as control select keys.
Selectable frequency step
For convenience the following steps are available: 5, 10, 12.5, 15, 20,
S meter squelch
This enables you to determine what signal strength is required to open the
squelch or to stop scanning; weaker signals will be ignored. Noise squelch
and auto squelch are also available.
Optional CTCSS unit (TSU-7)
Any 38 sub-tone frequency can be selected and stored in any memory channel
for instant recall. Moreover, the optional TSU-7 tone decoder unit provides
all 37 EIA-standard CTCSS frequencies.
