Default New Kenwood TH-D72 APRS 2m/440 receives FCC certification


On October 18, 2010, the FCC issued the Kenwood TH-D72 certification. This is the new 2m/440 APRS HT that Kenwood has been promising for almost 2 years. Here is a picture of the HT shown with the FCC certification sticker below the battery power tabs:



Based on this information, we should see this radio in stores very soon!

Good news, one step closer to this long awaited radio being available for sale. Think they will be available before the end of the year?

I'm not sure. I don't recall hearing anything about that at Dayton.
