Kenwood's NX-240V16P/340U16P 16 channel 5 Watt portable radios operate in either analog FM or NXDN¨ digital modes, offering a cost-effective way to migrate smoothly from legacy systems while discovering the benefits of advanced digital technology Ð including increased effective coverage area, low noise for superior clarity, and inherent secured voice. All this comes in a tough, compact radio that is easy to operate, delivers high-powered audio, and ensures round-the-clock reliability.
SWITCHABLE DIGITAL AND ANALOG DUAL MODES
The NX-240VP/340UP series is effectively two radios in one Ð analog and digital Ð operating on 12.5kHz in analog zones, and on 6.25kHz NXDN¨ in digital zones. For convenience, a PF key can be used to switch between zones.
SUPERIOR CLARITY IN EXTENDED COVERAGE
NX-240VP/340UP series radios employ NXDN¨, an FDMA digital air interface with AMBE+2TM voice coding technology, unique filtering and a 4-level FSK modulation technique with low bit error rate (BER) even at weak RF signal strengths. As RF signal strength weakens with distance, analog reception becomes increasingly noisy and intermittent. NXDN¨'s low BER improves reception in fringe areas, thereby "effectively" increasing coverage as much as 20% over analog.
ENHANCED AUDIO QUALITY
AMBE+2TM VOCODER technology accurately replicates natural human speech nuances for superior voice quality, even at highway speeds. Additionally, the powerful 36mm-diameter speaker delivers up to 1 watt audio output, providing undeniably clearer and crisper audio.
FREQUENCY & QT/DQT/RAN
Users can program a ProTalk¨ to any of the pre-stored frequencies, QT/DQT analog codes, RAN digital codes, thus assuring compatibility with other brands. The ProTalk¨ digital VHF NX-240V16P/P2 16-channel model has 27 pre-stored frequencies while the ProTalk¨ digital UHF NX-340U16P/P2 16-channel model has 99. Both models have 39 QT tones and 168 DQT codes in analog mode and 64 RAN codes in digital mode.

PROGRAMMABLE FUNCTION KEYS
Both PF Keys can be programmed for any of the many functions available, permitting customization to suit your specific requirements.
Confidentiality in radio communications is a Kenwood priority, and helping to maintain a high level of security in analog mode is a 16-code voice inversion scrambler, while robust NXDN¨ encryption is available with 32,767 selectable digital modes.
