Kenwood Licence Free Radio Lineup

Do you have a Kenwood TK-3201 or Kenwood TK-3301? Did you know it’s been replaced? Indeed it has – by the Kenwood TK-3401D. Read more below.

What Replaced These Awesome Radios?

The official replacement for the Kenwood TK-3201 and Kenwood TK-3301 is the Kenwood TK-3401D. The TK-3401D is an improved version of the TK-3201 and TK-3301, works on the same channels, but also adds in digital mode for ultra-clear audio – so a massive improvement. See below for more TK-3401D improvements and features.

The Kenwood TK-3501 Myth

Many people think that the TK-3501 is the replacement for the TK-3301 and TK-3201. This is simply not true. The TK-3501 was released before the TK-3401D was released. And both were released before the TK-3301 was cancelled. And we presume this may have been the source of the confusion. The fact is that the Kenwood TK-3501 is a very slimmed down radio in both features and build quality. This means that TK-3501 is a cheaper radio, and it is by no means anywhere near as rugged as the TK-3301. In contrast the TK-3401D is built to the same MIL standard and is improved in quality.

Why Is The TK-3401D The Replacement

Kenwood says so. But not just that. The Kenwood TK-3401D shares the same battery, charger, belt clip and accessories with the TK-3201 and TK-3301 – making it an obvious replacement.
