Key Features

Surveillance Mode
Once selected, all alert tones are muted, and the display backlight and LED illumination switched off to allow discrete operation in covert situations.

Built-in Encryption
The built-in 15-bit scrambler provides security and secrecy in communications by encrypting voice data or user data such as a Short Message. Security can be upgraded to 40-bit ARC4 encryption with an optional licence.

Feature-rich Menu
NX-1000 Series radios feature a comprehensive list of features accessed through the built-in menu to allow you to set radios up either for simple operation or to access advanced features and functions.

Native Digital / Analogue Mixed Mode
Unlike other mixed FM/Digital operating methods that rely on scanning to establish a connection with an incoming FM analogue call, Mixed Mode operation is native to NX-1000 Series devices and delivers near instantaneous response.

Battery Level Check
Even on non-display models, the battery level function can be assigned to a button which when pressed will provide battery level information through a series of audible tones and flashing of the LED light bar.

Lock-down Alert Function
Designate a pre-programmed channel to call all radios in the event of an emergency and to effect lock-down procedures – an especially useful feature for use in schools, arenas and stadia.

Front Panel Programming
Allows user to change data, such as the frequency on a conventional channel, and to add a conventional channel in the transceiver only; even where no software or PC is available. The required data can be configured using only the keypad. This allows radios to be employed quickly in critical situations where radios on different frequencies are in use by multiple emergency response services.

Programmable RGB display LEDs
A feature typically reserved for higher-tier radios, the large RGB display can be programmed to assign colours to individual callers or user groups.

Dual-Slot Direct (DMR)
This feature allows each timeslot to be used independently to carry out two simplex calls simultaneously.

Site Roaming
Programmable Site Roaming allows the radio to migrate automatically to the site providing a better radio environment.

NXDN Type-D Single Site Trunking Support.

GPS Capability
The radios can be enabled with GPS capability simply with the addition of an external GPS microphone.

Auto Slot Detect (DMR)
When used in system with a repeater Auto Slot Detect balances traffic and capacity using both slots to allow radios to make use of vacant slot to give a simplified ‘trunking-like’ capability without the need for additional equipment and infrastructure.

Over the Air Alias (OTA)
Over-the-Air Alias allows the receiving radio to display the ID Name of the transmitting radio when receiving a call from a new user without having to configure the receiving radio.

The KPG-D6 software suite allows you to access the full capabilities of NX-1000 Series radios. You can purchase the software and licence activation from your authorised KENWOOD reseller.
