This is my latest addition to the radio collection. It's a Kenwood NX-1300AUK5 upgraded with the DMR license, effectively a NX-1300DUK5, so it will do both analog FM, wide and narrow band, and DMR conventional operation. This radio can also be loaded with the NXDN digital mode and ARC4 enhanced encryption licenses too. The radio will do analog FM and either one of the digital modes depending on which firmware is currently loaded on the radio. It will only do one digital mode at a time.


One nice feature is the radio can do front panel programming as a standard feature when enabled in the programming software and the code plug loaded into the radio! The limitation is on FM the bandwidth is set to narrow. You can go and read the radio with the programming software and change it. You also need the software to enter the alpha tag, otherwise it's set as CH-xxx where xxx is the current channel number. Not perfect but many commercial radios you can't program from the front panel at all, or if you can it's an extra cost item.
