It’s true that analog radios are still playing a role in mobile communications. But the future is unquestionably digital, and the KENWOOD NX-740HV and NX-840HU NEXEDGE radios demonstrate why, offering increased effective coverage area, low noise for superior clarity, and inherent secured voice. As you would expect from KENWOOD, intuitive operation, high-powered performance, and round-the-clock reliability come as standard. But there’s more. These mobile radios have a dual personality: they operate in both analog FM and NXDN digital modes, enabling smooth migration from legacy systems.
