Kenwood Introduces Ultra Compact Design for NEXEDGE Portables


(Suwanee, GA) Further extending the usefulness of the NEXEDGE® brand, Kenwood has released a new 5 Watt UHF/VHF portable, the NX-220/320, that is a full ten percent smaller than prior models, retaining the ultra rugged features including compliance with MilStd 810 and IP54/55 protocols while offering the flexibility of a non-display model for those users who do not need to display talk groups or channels.

A reduced price on these new models will bring superior digital NEXEDGE performance to more users, making the user-driven scheduled migration to narrowbanding and digital operation even more cost effective. All of these new super compact models also feature the full array of NEXEDGE 2.5 enhancements such as over-the-air programming, enhanced audio and telephone interconnect.
