June 2017 sees the launch of Kenwood’s latest NX portable and mobile series. These adaptable mobile radios support both NXDN and DMR digital protocols combined with mixed digital and FM analogue operation.
The new series is designed with flexibility in mind, as a result, it’s packed with convenient features like Bluetooth for hands free operation and built-in GPS location function. When combined with the new Kenwood KAS-20 messaging software, the series is proving to be a powerful comms tool business and mission critical applications.
