The Kenwood VC-H1 Visual Communicator combines an image-scan converter, CCD camera and LCD monitor in a compact battery operated unit. Simply hook it up to your Kenwood (or most other) transceiver to start sending and receiving color images over the air. It is compact and operates from four alkaline AA cells, so you can take it anywhere. Send and receive digital images quick (17 seconds download @9600 baud) and easy anywhere. For camping trips, Field Day, or Disaster Communication teams. Imagine sending images across town or across the world on VHF/UHF or HF. The VC-H1 offers full compatibility with many standard SSTV formats. The two primary SSTV modes are FAST FM and Robot (color) 36. It is also compatible with the Robot (color) 72, AVT 90, AVT 94, Scottie S1, Scottie S2, Martin M1 and Martin M2. The FAST FM mode is available only to select mobile transceivers that support 9600 bps such as the TM-255, TM-455, TM-733, TM-742A, TM-V7A, TM-G707 etc. It features a detachable 0.25 inch CCD camera and a 1.8 inch color TFT display. Up to ten pictures can be stored in memory.
