Default Kenwood remote mount control head question

How do I find which model radios would be compatible with my remote mount control head?

No Kenwood yet. I want to buy one to use the remote mount. Hopefully in the business band for use with SAR.

You have a photo of your remote mount control head then? Your making this sound like you have something, but not sure what it is.

I don't see a kit or model number on it to match with the radio. I would like to verify before I buy a used radio that is not compatible. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Then that would go to a TK7180/8180 analog radio.

The remote kit however, goes with several radios, mainly the 3 I mentioned. Nx700, tk5720, or tk7180

Not being band specific, just general statement

Since it says S A B C, it's from a TK-x180. If it had a menu and back button, it would work on either a P25 TK-5x20 or an NXDN NX-x00 radio.
