Dangerous : DGR-UN 3481 PI966, Section II

General information

VHF portable transceiver

Capable of digital and analogue communication

Can be used with or without repeater

Current standard has limited keypad, since extended keypad is deemed of limited use or no use for almost all applications

Firmware for digital communication according to dPMR standard

Capable of using NXDN digital communication, but will require a firmware change (flashing)

The kit is composed of one NX-220E2 transceiver, 2 batteries, a battery charger, a general purpose antenna, belt clip and the user manual.

The kit now contains 2 batteries to alleviate the problem of transporting spare batteries (UN DGR regulations allow relatively easy transport with the radio, but are very restrictive for spare batteries without the radio)

The standard NX220E2 handset is delivered with one KRA22M (146-162MHz range) short antenna.

Various other models of VHF antennas exist, covering different frequency ranges. The range covered by each individual antenna is given by the colour of an identifier ring at the bottom of the antenna (top of the screw thread): a BROWN identifier is used for the 136 - 150MHz range, a RED identifier is used for the 146 - 162MHz range, and an ORANGE identifier is used for the 162 - 174MHz range.

For each frequency range, there are two types of antenna lengths available: one short “low profile” antenna (110.0mm) and one long antenna (167.5mm).

Purchase via HQ recommended (compulsory for ICRC). If local purchase, please make sure it has the suitable firmware to support either dPMR (ICRC standard), or NXDN (not ICRC standard)

Installation tool: KENWOOD NXx20 – Programming cable handset KPG-22U - USB
