TM733 with 2 antenna-sockets

Hello Kenwood-user,

As I started to use the TM733E on my 3 bander COMET 901 , I had to modify my transceiver. As I think some off you use a 3 way splitter to connect several transceivers at the same time there was a problem,I could not use the 23cm band and the splitter anymore sinds the TM733E came with only one antenna socket (mixed VHF and UHF).

After looking around in different shops, I was unable to find a splitter that had the UHF and VHF together on one socket and the 23cm band on another.
So I decided to have a look at the schematics off the TM733E and noticed the US version has 2 antenna sockets.

Modifying the rig is very simple:
Make a second antenna cable with PL259 socket or get it at your local Kenwood dealer (some 15$) (same cable as on the other mobile dual banders ...TM701 etc.)Open both sides off the transceiver.
Take off the plastic cover off the spare hole at the back.
Insert and solder the new antenna cable.
Take away the connection (one big pin) from the VHF to the UHF pc-board with a good solderpump.
Your rig has now 2 antenna-inputs ,one for VHF ,one for UHF.

This mod. is also interesting for those who often use the CROSSBANDREPEATER, sinds you can now connect a vertical to the 70cm tx and a beam to the 2m part or the other way round.

Good luck with the modification and ...
have as much fun with the TM733E as i do !

TM733 and 9k6 Bps

As I first started to use the TM733E on 9600Bps ,it didn't work very well.
Rx 9600Bps was no problem but the TX-side was poor in transmission-speed.
After having a look at the SERVICE MANUAL i discovered that the audiosignal from the G3RUH should at least be 2 Volts PEP.
This information is not in the original manual delivered with the TM733E.
Txdelay starts at 200mS and combination nr 9 (strap settings G3RUH) seems to be the best to get minimum errors ...
Hoping to set some off you on the right track now...

TM733 & 9K6

Well John, i'm sorry i have to say this but the Kenwood TM733 is definitely NOT suited for 9600bd operation. It has several serious design bugs.

  • PLL modulation, thereby giving very bad Bit Error Rate figures because of the bad lf response of the modulation circuits. At 64 Hz, there is a 4.5 dB rise.
  • Slow tx<>rx switching. The TM733 needs 100-150 milliseconds to turn around. If your opponent (satellite or earth station) is faster with replying you keep on missing his first packet.
These problems are very common in the current generation "9600bd ready" transceivers. The Icom IC281/481, Yeasu 5100 and many others suffer from these problems.
The Kenwood TM733 has another design bug :
  • If you try to make more than about 2.5 KHz deviation via the data port, the modulation gets very distorded. This is not easy noticable, since 9k6 modulation sounds like noise, and distorded 9k6 also sounds as noise.. This problem is seen at more than one TM733, throughout Europe.
I sure hope you can send this thing back and get your money back, John.

TM-733E MOD 9k6 english

After I bought a Kenwood TM-733E transceiver for packet radio I was very disappointed about the bad modulation in the 9600 baud packet mode on the 430 mc band. For many digipeaters the tranceiver produced insufficient fm deviation. If you increase the modulation voltage you will get a strong distortion of your signal. The german Kenwood office was unable or unwilling to fix this problem.
After some experiments I found the following solution for my transceiver:

Increase the internal packet radio modulation signal for the 70cm band by reducing the value of a SMD resistor. The resistor lives on the TX-RX Unit/Control board (X57-436X-XX)(C/4). The resistor is named R536 and it has a value of 56 kOhm. I reduced itīs value by soldering an additional SMD resistor of 30 kOhm on itīs top.
The two resistors form a new value of 19 kOhm. This will increase the modulation voltage for the PLL unit and you need less input signal on the data input at the socket J402. My tranceiver makes now a deviation of 3.5 kHz with 1V/pp instead of 2.2 kHz with 2V/pp before.
There is less distortion than before. Concerning 9k6 packet radio the TM-733E has a bad frequency characteristic. It can be fixed with a suitable selection of the modem transmission filter. The following selection was the best for my TNC2H:
0 0 1 1 (switches 5 to 8, 1 = up, 0 = down).

Please note:
I am not responsible for your modifications.
You will do it at your own risk!

You need:

15 to 20 minutes time, a magnifying glass a screw driver (X), a needle type soldering iron and a SMD resistor of round about 30 kOhm
  1. Remove the top cover ( 4 screws )
  2. Remove the bottom cover ( 4 screws )
  3. Remove the front panel ( no screws! )
  4. Remove the plastic front cover ( 6 plastic snappers )
  5. Disconnect the two flat cables on the front board ( shift the bolts )
  6. Remove the front board ( 2 screws )
  7. Find the SMD resistor named R536 ( the print on the resistor reads 563, it is located on the back side of the front board between the two flat cable sockets, use a magnifying glass! )
  8. Solder the 30 KOhm SMD resistor on top of the R536
  9. Reassemble the other way round ( good luck ! )
When the modification is done you have to setup your modem (modulation voltage and filter selection) again.

Concerning Kenwoods bad support in germany my next packet radio tranceiver will be from a different manufacturer.

Please send me a message with your results. Good success!

TM-733A Quick Reference Guide

Assembly Mode Test

In the TM-733 Service Manual, it describes a test mode that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere else. So, here's the scoop:

Entering Assembly Mode: [CALL] + [MUTE] + [Power On]
All LCD segments should come on. (To exit, power off.)

Press the [VFO] key. *This must always be done first*
The serial port is checked and "F" with "80" on the display indicates test passed. "1" or "2" means failure.

Different keys now show different displays, with [LOW], [SHIFT], [TONE], and [REV] also adjusting the backlight intensity.

Set the dials to minimum, then press the [MR] key. Each of the dials shows the digitized level.

This looks useful for checking all the keys and dials when you suspect a bad connection.

Extended RF Modifications

Refer to diagram below.

Remove power source from the radio.

Remove the display panel.

Remove the top cover the radio.

Face the front of the radio away from you.

Remove the speaker.

Looking from the back of the radio, the control board is vertically mounted just behind the front panel wall (which can be removed easily if better access is needed.)

Just to the right of a chip labeled XRU4066BCF and just to the left of two green wires (B2 & B3 which are draped over the board to the rear) are two zero-ohm SMT resistors, B0 and B1, marked "000".

Remove B0. (the one on the left - furthest from the green wires)
Taking it out might be a bit tricky. It's glued down for surface-mount assembly. Be careful not to pull the trace from the board.

Perform a CPU reset by holding [MR] while turning on the radio.
It will then ask if it is "OK?" to reset, press [MR] again.

The ranges after modification are as follows:

Tx: 136-174 410-470
Rx: 118-174 300-470

The cellular band is indeed missing.

ONLY Removing Jumper 1 (B2) is the MARS/CAP modification.

The jumpers are actually soldered on the other side of the board, but the loops come up over the top and hang over the B0/B1 side.


Here's something interesting! According the Kenwood rep I spoke to, performing this mod *does not* void your factory warranty. The same goes for any Kenwood published service bulletin or modification info. We are encouraged to perform the repairs ourselves to save them the trouble and expence.

DTMF Remote via Microphone

The TM-733 is fully DTMF remotable via the microphone (documented). The radio can also be externally DTMF controllable with an HT, but that will be described later.

The DTMF control keys are exactly as shown on page 81 of the manual. Note that the microphone is active all the time, so any ambient DTMF tones near your mic will also change rig settings. This includes tones coming in on the other band and out the speaker.

Cross Band Repeating

Cross band repeat isn't documented but comes ready from the factory.
To enable cross band repeat from the front panel, first select a band by pressing BAND SELECT. Then, change the control to the other band by hitting [CONT SEL]. Next, press [F] for one second, then the "X" button (far right side). Decimals will appear between the Kilohertz digits, and the "ON" indicator will light momentarily. The microphone sequence to enable cross band repeat while in remote control mode is "DC".

The transmitter hang time can be toggled between 500ms to 0ms by turning on the radio with [LOW] pressed. They also recommend enabling the Time-out Timer, for obvious reasons.

Note that the TM-733 can also be used as a "one-way" cross-band repeater.
For example, if you can receive a distant repeater with your HT, but have difficulty getting into it, you can use the TM-733 to boost your transmitted signal. To set this up, just omit the part where you "change the control to the other band by pressing [CONT SEL]." Doing this will setup the TM-733 to repeat your signal to the other band, but will not retransmit the distant station back to you. If this sounds ambiguous, play around with it a little and it will begin to make sense.

DTMF Paging and Squelch

The DTMF Paging & DTMF Squelch protocol (AAA*BBB) is compatible with the Yaesu 530 and all Kenwood radios supporting this.

Wireless Cloning

The advertised but undocumented Wireless Clone function is described in App Note AAN-0008 which they will mail out on request. (Maybe if enough people ask for it, they will include all the functions in future instruction manuals.) In summary:
  • Prepare the two radios for simplex operation on the same frequency.
  • Turn both radios off
  • Press [CALL]+[SHIFT] + [Pwr On].
  • This should place the radios is clone mode with "CLonE" on the display.
  • Press PTT on the "Master" radio momentarily. This will start sending the programming DTMF tones.
  • After all data has been transferred, the display of all radios will read "End", indicating success.
  • If the signal is interrupted or corrupted, the "Slave" displays will read "Err". Turn them off and try again.

  • Both the Master and Slave radios must have the same number of memory channels available for each band. Example: You can not clone a stock Master to a Slave with ME-1 memory expansion.
  • You can not clone between different Kenwood radio models, even if they seem identical.
Be careful when using the clone feature. It has been known to wipe out or scramble memories on the master radio during or right after clone.

TM-733A PL Tone Distortion
Author: Kenwood Communication, inc.

Service Bulletin no. 1060 (30 AUgust 1994)

Transmitted PL tones at the receiving station have a relatively high level of distortion. This is easily seen when the incoming signal is viewed on an oscilloscope.

Change the value of the "Pull-up" resistors in the PL tone encoder circuit as shown in the accompanying chart and illustration. This reduces the distortion from around 9% to approximately 4%.

Caution: This modification requires advanced surface mount soldering equipment that is rated for CMOS circuits. It also requires familiarity with advanced surface mount soldering techniques. If you do not have the proper equipment or knowledge do not attempt this modification yourself. Seek qualified assistance from your closest Kenwood Service Center (Long Beach, CA, or Virginia Beach, VA).

Extra note, these nots is not from Kenwood.

The Service Manual specifies a test for the PL. The technician is simply required to verify that any one PL tone is between 500 and 1500 Hz deviation. This is quite a wide tolerance range! The "standard" PL tone deviation should be 750 Hz. Twice that strong might be too strong and become audible. There are no trim-pots on the PL deviation, so I'm guessing that the deviation is pretty constant from radio to radio.

The dirty PL is definitely found on early models, but we have had many reports that the PL problem has been fixed in newer versions of the radio. If you purchased your radio after September 15, 1994, (or your serial number is greater than 55000000) it's a good chance that you may not have the PL problem.

The other problem concerns the DTMF Confirmation Tones. This feature is off by default (I wonder why :), while it seems pretty useful. To turn it on, press [PTT] + [Down] on the microphone while powering the radio on. This will generate short DTMF confirmation tones whenever you send DTMF over the air from the keypad. Unfortunately, it mangles the beginning of the outgoing DTMF tone! This is serious enough that most local repeaters can't detect the tone, or count it as two tones.

Get a receiver and listen to what you are sending out when the Confirmation tones are enabled. It sounds to me like they may be mixing the confirmation tone in with the real tone and getting some destructive interference. Just a guess, though.

I called a Kenwood technician (Ricardo) and worked with him on the phone to reproduce the problem there. So, as of today, this is a Known Problem, and they are looking into a fix. :-)

I am really curious to know what they would say if other folks called up and complained about this problem. Would they deny hearing about it, or would it really be a Known Problem? Might give some insight into the PL-noise denial thing anyway. :-)

Personally, I'm much more concerned about the noisy PL than the DTMF confirmation tones, since I can just shut those off and pretend that feature doesn't exist. If enough people call about the PL problem, maybe they will come out with a real fix and offer it under warranty to all the radios out there (since they're all pretty new). My guess is that it will involve a free TSU-8 tone decode module, but don't hold your breath. :-)

External DTMF Remote Control

The following procedure places the 733 in External DTMF Remote Control.

Note that this mode is different than DTMF Remote Mode. This mode concerns the control of the 733 with an HT, and not the microphone.
  • Press Band Select and select the UHF band.
  • Pick a UHF control frequency.
  • Turn on the UHF DTSS function and select a tone sequence. (p. 89)
  • Turn the UHF DTSS function back off.
  • Press Band Select to move to the VHF band.
  • Press [CONT SEL] to move control back to the UHF band.
  • Turn OFF the radio, press and hold [CONT SEL] while turning the radio back on, then release [CONT SEL]. The S-meter scale and the DT indicators for the UHF band will begin flashing. The LOCK indicator will turn ON, and most front-panel keys (except PWR) will be disabled.
  • To begin remote control, you should key the external radio and press the following key sequence: "Axxx#" where "xxx" is the preset DTSS code selected earlier.
  • If the proper code is received by the 733, the beeper will sound and the DT indicator will stop flashing. The radio can now be remotely controlled using the function chart below.
  • To return to standby mode, press "A#" on the remote radio.
  • To return the radio to normal operation, turn the radio off, then press and hold [CONT SEL] while turning the radio back on.
Refer to this chart when using the TM-733 in "External DTMF Control".

          1               2               3               A
       T.ALT ON         TONE ON        CTCSS ON         ENTER

          4               5               6               B
       T.ALT OFF        TONE OFF       CTCSS OFF       TONE SEL

          7               8               9               C
         CALL            VFO           MEMORY        REPEATER ON

          *               0               #               D
         DOWN        POWER LEVEL         UP          REPEATER OFF

There are no "shifted" functions. Just one function per button.
After you hit "B" for TONE SELECT, press * or # to go up or down, and same is true when in VFO mode or in MEMORY mode. Tones 7, 8, and 9 mimic the three buttons at the top of the 733 mic.

Pressing "C" places the radio in cross band repeat mode. You will recognize this because of the dots between Kilohertz digits. After pressing "C", put the radio back into standby mode with "A#". The 733 will now cross band repeat. To disable cross band repeat, place the radio back into the External DTMF Remote Control with "Axxx#". If you can read through the lines, the 733 is capable of operating as a frequency agile remote base. Now Kenwood just needs a CW IDer!

I bought a baycom board,ive tried to put the baycom boad 5 pin din plug to this but faild so far on one attempt,if you are very good with the practical side of radio's could you please tell me the proper way to wire my kenwood tm 733e up the the baycom.

TM-733A PL tone bleed through
Author: Kenwood Communication, inc.

Service Bulletin no. 1061 (16 September 1994)

When transmitting a PL tone a "humming noise" might be heard coming from the internal speaker of the TM-733A. This caused by a difference of potential between the tone generating circuit and the AF amplifier circuit.

This symptom is corrected by tying the ground connections in the AF amplifier and Tone generating circuit together.

Parts required:

TM-733A PL tone bleed through
Author: Frank, ZP5FGS -

Tired of carring the operation manual in my car while operating my TS-733 A, I decided to make a "One Page Reference Manual" with almost all info needed.

Operating the 733 on a "not every day basis" wihtout the manual is not easy because some settings do not follow a logic secuence, as you find it for example in Icom or others, and you may forget them.

The 733 is very rich in features and different settings, so it's a good advise to carry the Op. Manual with you, or at least have a short version like this.

The One Page version is an Microsoft Excel file.
