  • New Kenwood Protalk radios for 2020

    Kenwood NX-P11200-P1300 Two Way RadiosKenwood ProTalk TK series business radios are a popular choice for their high performance and lasting durability. Now Kenwood is updating their ProTalk TK Series radios with new six models in the NX line. Known as the NX-P1000 Series, these new radios will replace the old analog-only TK series with more intuitive operation and greater performance, plus the ability support both analog and NXDN or DMR digital modes! Here's a rundown of the new Kenwood ProTalk radios for 2020.

    The new NX-P1000 Series radios are available in models with either 2 Watts or 5 Watts of power and your choice of UHF or VHF. They are compatible with the legacy radios in the TK-2000/TK-3000 series, essentially replacing them.

    Kenwood NX-P1202AV-P1302AU Two Way RadiosNX-P1202AV/P1302AU
    This is the 2 watt version with a total of 64 channels and replaces the TK-2400 and TK-3400, respectively. The NX-P1202AV operates on 151-159 MHz VHF frequencies in the business band. NX-P1302AU transmits on 451-470 MHz UHF frequencies. Both models feature a 7 color LED indicator light, multiple scan modes, lone worker mode and emergency function. They also support radio-to-radio cloning with an optional cloning cable and are fully PC programmable with an optional programming cable and software.

    One other new feature of the NX-P1202 and NX-P1302 is the PTT button. There are two of them! Yes, these radios have a second PTT so you can contact staff on another channel without switching channels to do it. This type of "dual transmit" feature can be extremely useful in work environments where separate communications can be relayed to different groups on different channels at the push of a button, greatly increasing efficiency and productivity.

    Also, the NX-P1202AV and NX-P1302AU allow you to migrate to digital. These units are sold as analog only, but can be upgraded to digital for mixed mode operation at any time with the purchase of optional an software and license key package. You're not locked into one type of digital mode, either. You can choose whether to go FDMA with Kenwood's NXDN® digital format or TDMA using the DMR digital format. It's your choice. This ability to choose between two different digital with the same radio is uncommon at the time this article is written, which makes the NX-P1202AV and NX-P1302AU somewhat unique. Price: NX-P1202AV (VHF) $209.00 / NX-P1302AU (UHF) $209.00

    Kenwood NX-P1300AU Two Way RadioNX-P1200AV/P1300AU
    These are the 5 watt models and replace the TK-2402 and TK-3402. The NX-P1200AV works on 151-159 MHz VHF and the NX-P1300AU operates on 451-470 MHz UHF. They have the same core feature of the NX-1202 and NX-1302. except they are only upgradeable to NXDN. All the other features are the same, including the 7 color LED, second PTT button and cloning capability.

    In fact, they use the same FCC IDs as their 1202/1302 counterparts, which means they are essentially the same radios with the same general capabilities. As with the 1202/1302, these radios are sold with analog enabled, with the option to digital. Price: NX-P1200AV (VHF) $269.00 / NX-P1300AU (UHF) $269.00

    Kenwood NX-P1300NU Analog and Digital Two Way RadioNX-P1200NV/P1300NU
    These are the high end models in the NX-P1000 line and replace the NX-240V16P and NX-340U16P digital radios. As with the P1200/1300 radios, The NX-P1200NV is VHF and the NX-P1300NU is UHF. They share the same look, feel, basic features and ruggedness of the other new models, but with one important difference. There is no upgrade to digital. They support analog and NXDN digital modes right out of the box!

    The P1200NV and P1300NU feature mixed-mode analog and digital operation, allowing you to integrate them into your legacy analog fleet seamlessly for a smooth migration to digital as your time and budget allows. They support switchable digital and analog dual modes., allowing you to combine analog channels and digital channels in the same zone. Add in the second PTT, and you have a powerful digital radio that's compatible with your existing Kenwoods, and with maximum versatility. Price: NX-P1200NV (VHF) $309.00 / NX-P1300NU (UHF) $309.00

    There's more to this new Kenwood series than just the radios, and it's all good news. All six models are designed for compatibility with the same antennas, battery packs and chargers used with the legacy TK-2400 and TK3400 series radios. Plus, they use the standard Kenwood 2-pin (K1) style connector, which means you can use the earpieces, speaker microphones and other audio accessories intended for your existing Kenwood ProTalk radios with these.

    Kenwood intended this to be as easy as possible to upgrade from their legacy products to their new radios. Based on their ruggedness, backwards compatibility, in-radio analog to digital conversion, and versatility, The new NX-P1000 Series radios should fit in quite well. All six models are now available from Buy Two Way Radios.

  • How Radios and Callboxes can Enable Social Distancing in Schools

    Two Way Radios for SchoolsIt's the year 2020. Schools are opening soon, but this year things will be different. Every school that is planning to offer classes on campus has adopted considerable changes. Some are restricting students to classrooms only and some are prohibiting visitors from entering their buildings. Others are alternating students between at-home and on-campus classes to reduce class size. No matter the scenario, an instant, reliable and simple means of communication between everyone on school property is vital, and radios are the perfect solution for ensuring safe interaction. Here's how radios and callboxes can enable safe, productive social distancing in schools.

    Social distancing guidelines require a minimum of six feet between individuals. Since most classrooms are not built for this sort of distancing, many schools are forced to re-arrange classrooms to space out desks and limit the number of students allowed within a specific area. When each staff member is equipped with a walkie talkie, such partitioning is easier to organize and manage.

    One strategy that schools are taking to limit the spread of coronavirus is by restricting movement between classrooms, within the facility and across the campus. Some schools are not allowing students to leave the classroom. Some schools are not allowing parents or visitors to enter the building. In some situations, even the teachers, staff and administrators may all be confined within their designated work areas to minimize the possible spread of a contagion. These are all scenarios in which it may be essential for each staff member to have a radio.

    As an educator, you're probably already aware that every school is different, so there's not a one-size-fits-all solution for handling the current coronavirus crisis. Simply put, there are as many solutions for dealing with this pandemic as there are schools. Yet, if there is one thing that we keep hearing from our customers, it's that radios fit into the plan, and we're here to help with that. Here are a few products that are already popular with schools, and can help you meet your goals of providing a quality education in a safe, healthy environment.

This radio is a good choice for educational facilities that need rugged, reliable Mil Spec and IP54 radios which are also easy on school budgets.

    The IC-F4001 a 4 watt UHF radio with 16 channels, CTCSS/DCS tones filtering, and powerful 800mW audio output for noisy classrooms and physical education activities in schoolyards.

These can be quite useful in an on-campus environment for both pandemic control and security reasons.

  • New GMRS antennas from Nagoya are now available!

    Nagoya NA-701G GMRS AntennaSince the FCC Part 95 reform of 2017, we've seen quite a surge in demand for GMRS radios, of both portable handheld walkie talkies and mobile/base station units. This isn't surprising to us at all. It was inevitable, and for several reasons. In response to this demand, high quality, commercial grade GMRS radios such as the Wouxun KG-805G are entering the market, and are quickly becoming quite popular. This new generation of transcievers also brings a demand for professional grade radio accessories such as high capacity batteries, earpieces, speaker mics, and antennas.

    However, while audio accessories are plentiful and power options are not much of a problem, it's the availability of detachable antennas that is at issue. More specially, antennas made and tuned for the GMRS.

    Before the Great Reform, the antennas on FRS/GMRS radios were not swappable. While the FCC did allow GMRS radios to have detachable aerials, it wasn't legal on FRS walkie talkies, so the combo units simply didn't have them. With few exceptions, serious GMRS operators had to settle for using antennas tuned to a wider range of UHF business frequencies in the 420-480Mhz range. While these antennas also worked on the GMRS, they weren't specifically tuned for it, limiting the overall performance of the radio to which it was connected.

    Not anymore.

    Buy Two Way Radios and Nagoya have teamed up to introduce a new series of antennas designed and built specifically for GMRS two way radios. These new GMRS antennas from Nagoya are now available for purchase, and exclusively at Buy Two Way Radios!

    There are currently three antennas in this series, two for the portable handeld walkie talkies, and one for mobiles. All three are made for the GMRS.

    Nagoya NA-701G
    Based on one of Nagoya's most popular antenna series for dual band portable radios, the NA-701G takes the venerable NA-701 directly to the General Mobile Radio Service, supporting 462MHz GMRS channels, plus 467MHz for fine tuning to GMRS repeaters.

    Nagoya NA-771G
    The NA-771G is based on another very popular, high performance antenna for handheld dual band amateur radios, the NA-771. It's also, at the time this article is written, probably the longest, at over 15 inches in length! This is a 1/2λ wave antenna with a maximum power rating of 10 Watts and is tuned to 462 MHz and 467 MHz GMRS frequencies.

    Nagoya NL-770G
    The NL-770G is a high gain linear mobile antenna tuned to 462MHz and 467MHz frequencies for GMRS. It has a PL-259 (UHF male) connector that fits any number of vehicle mounting kits that is equipped with an SO-239 (UHF female) connector or feed line, including the Nagoya RB-MJPL Mobile Mag Mount Base. At approximately 38 inches (97 cm) in length, the LN-770G has 6 dBi gain and V.S.W.R. 1.5:1.

    All three antennas are now available exclusively from Buy Two Way Radios.

    We have a long relationship with Nagoya and only buy direct from this manufacturer. When you purchase a Nagoya antenna from us, be assured that you are getting an authentic, genuine Nagoya product from an authorized Nagoya dealer - Buy Two Way Radios! Questions? Concerns? Contact us!

  • Motorola DTR600 and DTR700 firmware and software update for July 2020

    Motorola DTR600 Change Profile IDMotorola just released new firmware and software for their DTR600 and DTR700 900MHz digital two way radios. The update includes a bug fix and a tweak to an existing feature in the radio settings.

    The bug fix resolves an issue that causes the display to freeze. When this issue occurs, the display will freeze, but the radio is otherwise still operational. It can receive and transmit calls and will also power off, however the screen will be locked up.

    The feature tweak is a change to the programming software for Enable Profile ID under the Profile ID Number information. On the DTR600, the Enable Profile ID to Change Pin Code is set to Enabled by default from the factory. This change applies to the DTR600 only and does not apply to the DTR700.

    According to Motorola, the DTR600 and DTR700 can be updated from radios with the original factory settings or those with the phase 1/2 patch installed. The radio should update successfully no matter which version was previously installed.

    Important Note: This update should only be applied if you are already experiencing these issues. If you are using the DTR600 or DTR700 radios with default factory settings, the update should not be necessary.

    The firmware updates the DTR600 and DTR700 to version R01.02.02, Codeplug Version: R01.02.01 and Keypad Version: R01.02.00.

    The update files are now available as listed below.
