  • The Kenwood ProTalk NX-P500 Digital Radio makes NXDN more affordable

    Kenwood ProTalk NX-P500 Digital Business Two Way RadioThe prospect of migrating an entire fleet of two way radios from analog to digital was once a rather intimidating one, and involved a considerable investment in a new and very expensive technology. Not anymore. As seems to be the trend, prices on high quality digital radios continue to fall. More evidence for this is the recently released Kenwood ProTalk NX-P500 Digital Radio, which retails for only $239. Once limited to the domain of DMR, the cost of choosing NXDN digital technology is finally coming down. Thanks to the NX-P500, NXDN is now a very affordable option.

    The NX-P500 is a small and lightweight UHF radio with two watts of transmit power. Its small footprint aside, this is a powerful little transceiver. It uses a 2000mAh lithium-ion battery pack that provides up to 15.5 hours of uptime on a single charge. Its built-in 750mW speaker belts out loud and clear audio and its LCD display is bright with easy to read icons and channel ID. It is also equipped with a 7 color LED indicator for call alerts and color coding groups.

    Kenwood ProTalk NX-P500 Digital Business Two Way RadioThe NX-P500 operates on 450-470 MHz UHF frequencies and has 99 user programmable memory bank frequencies. It supports both analog and digital mixed mode operation, so it can communicate with your existing fleet of UHF radios. The NXDN digital scrambler adds a layer of security to your digital communications. It also features Fleetsync® paging, VOX functionality and companding. It's repeater capable and supports wireless cloning. It's also waterproof and even submersible.

    The NX-P500 is a ProTalk® series digital radio. With this model, Kenwood is clearly providing a digital option for users of their PKT-23 and the very popular TK-3230DX. Those analog models are great for many shorter range business applications, such as restaurants, retail stores, event management, or medical and dental offices. With the NX-P500, those businesses can now choose a radio that is similar in size that also offers digital sound and features.

    Kenwood ProTalk NX-P500 in holster with charger and AC adapterThe question is, should businesses that were using these small analog radios switch to the NX-P500? This is without a doubt a superior radio, but is it worth the money? First of all, even if your business isn't using any of the advanced digital features, you will take advantage of the improved audio clarity. Second, the FCC has established a mandate that any new radios over two watts must be digital. While analog radios such as the TK-3230DX and PKT-23 are under this wattage, it's clear that digital is the direction that the FCC is pushing the industry.

    It seems logical to think that if you're eventually going to have to replace your fleet with digital radios, a good strategy is to start buying digital models like the NX-P500 now. Why buy another analog radio that you're going to have to replace later? The NX-P500 also supports analog, so it will work with your old radios now, and once you've replaced them all with digital models you can flip the switch and activate digital mode. Of course, if your business is currently not using radios at all, it definitely makes sense to start with digital. Either way, it's an easy, economical, and sensible route to digital two way radios.

    If you have any questions about the Kenwood NX-P500 or moving to digital radios, don't hesitate to contact us!

  • Midland, Motorola and Kenwood business radio channel compatibility

    Midland-Motorola-Kenwood-508.jpg

    The Midland BizTalk BR200 is a very capable, yet underrated business radio. It's also unbelievably affordable. At only $90, the BR200 is priced well below other onsite business radios such as the Motorola CLS1110, CLS1410, the Kenwood PKT-23 and the 6-channel Kenwood ProTalk TK-3230DX. If that weren't enough, the BR200 can communicate with all four of those models and, at 2 watts, it has twice the wattage of the Motorolas!

    If you have a fleet of Motorola or Kenwood radios and want to add a BizTalk BR200 into the mix, chances are you probably can.

    However, you need to do a little research first to be sure your radios are compatible before you buy. How? It's easier than you think.

    First, check the list of assigned and supported frequencies for the radios you currently use. If you are using channels with the default assigned frequencies, check the default frequency table in your radio's manual. If you are using another frequency supported by the radio, cross reference the frequency code number assigned to the channel(s) in your radio with the list of those codes and frequencies printed in the owner's manual for each make and model.

    Once you know the frequency and privacy code (if any) assigned to each channel in your radio, search for the same frequency or frequency and privacy code combination listed on the Midland BizTalk BR200 Default Frequencies Chart. If you find a match, your radio should be compatible for use with the Midland BizTalk BR200.

    If you are using the default frequencies pre-assigned to the first one or two channels on your Motorola or Kenwood radio out of the box, it's even easier, since the BR200 may already have same frequency and privacy code configuration on the same channel. The chart below matches the default frequency and channel assignments of the Midland BizTalk BR200 with the channels of the Motorola and Kenwood radios.

    Business Radio Default Frequencies Channel Compatibility

    Default Frequency Channel
    BR200 CLS1110 CLS1410 PKT-23 TK-3230DX Frequency Code
    1 1 1 1 1 464.5500 67.0

  • XLT Communications Launches Affordable RC6 Series Multi-Chargers

    We've been selling business radios for quite a while now. One thing that we hear pretty often from customers is that they like the idea of the 6-unit multi-charger. After all, most businesses have a central location for charging radios and adding dozens of individual chargers quickly turns into a disorganized heap of plastic and wires. The problem is, some radio manufacturers have multi-chargers that tend to break the bank (I'm looking at you, Icom and Vertex Standard).

    Fairly regularly, we'll have a customer with Icom or Vertex Standard radios ask about a multi-charger, only to change their mind when they hear the $300-$400 price. Motorola and Kenwood, on the other hand, have much better options with their on-site business radio series, providing chargers that generally retail in the $150-$200 range.

    RC6-I232

    Well, there are now some lower priced options available! XLT Communications has released five new chargers as their RC6 Series. These chargers work with popular low cost Icom and Vertex Standard radios. They are rapid chargers, fully charging a dead battery in around two hours. They also are capable of charging a battery separate from a radio, and can be wall mounted.

    Kenwood has taken a different route with their multi-chargers, so they are a different situation. Their multi-chargers are reasonably priced, but they are more of an organizer for the individual chargers than an all encompassing multi-charger. The KMB-28, for example, is a tray with a power cord. You snap in your individual KSC-35S chargers (that were included with the radios) and create a multi-charger. Power cords are built into the KMB-28, so it does provide the organization most businesses need. If you're looking for an all-in-one solution, however, the XLT RC6-K45L does provide it and even at a slightly lower price.

    The following are the models available, their prices, and compatible radios.

    RC6-I232 ($169.00) - Works with Icom radios using the BP-232H battery, including the Icom F4011, F3011, F24, and F14.

    RC6-I265 ($169.00) - Works with Icom radios using the BP-265 battery, including the Icom F4001, F3001, F4210D, F3210D, T70A, and V80.

    RC6-I279 ($169.00) - Works with Icom radios using the BP-279 or BP-280 batteries, including the Icom F1000, F2000, F1000D, and F2000D.

    RC6-K45L ($149.00) - Works with Kenwood radios that use the KNB-45L battery, including the Kenwood NX-240, NX-340, TK-2400, TK-2402, TK-3400, TK-3402, TK-2300, TK-2302, TK-3300, and TK-3302.

    RC6-VSUNI ($169.00) - Works with the Vertex Standard UNI battery system, including radios that use any of the following battery models: FNB-V127LI-UNI, FNB-V128LI-UNI, FNB-V129LI-UNI, FNB-V129LIIS-UNI, FNB-V130LI-UNI, FNB-V133LI-UNI, FNB-V134LI-UNI, FNB-V134LIIS-UNI. Works with the following Vertex Standard radios series: EVX-260, EVX-530, VX-260, VX-450, VX-820, VX-920.

  • Kenwood Announces New 2-Watt Digital Radio

    We just received word that Kenwood is planning to launch a 2 watt version of their NX-340U16P and NX-240V16P digital two way radios. The current radios are 5 watts, 16 channels, and operate using Nexedge FDMA digital technology, or conventional analog.

    The new models will be the NX-340U16P2 (UHF) and NX-240V16P (VHF), and are expected to be identical to the current models other than the difference in wattage. The new radios are expected to sell for $299, which will make it a definite consideration for current TK-3400 and TK-2400 users who are looking to go digital.

    Is it worth the extra cost to get a digital radio? Over the past few years there has been a significant price drop in digital radios. At this point, the benefits clearly outweigh the extra cost. While there are many benefits, the improvement in audio quality alone is worth the price of admission. With analog radios, the audio quality gets worse as the radios get further apart. With digital, the audio is always crystal clear. No more static, no more choppy audio.

    So who is the right customer for these two new models? Based on the performance of Kenwood's current 2-watt radios, the range is sufficient for most short to mid range applications. We have customers using the TK-3400 for applications such as warehouses, manufacturing, schools, retail stores and more.

    When can you purchase the new models? We expect to have them in stock in mid July.
