If you need NXDN as of now you will need a TRX-1. I like my 436 better for P25 and DMR Trunking as it works better in a high RF area plus I like the DMR Trunking better on my 436 but you have to get the LNC's in the right order for the 436 where the TRX-1 does not care as long as you have all the channels programmed it.

I agree unless you have an NXDN system in your area and you really want to monitor it then go with the Uniden also BCD436 is a little easier to work with unless you are computer monogramming them then both are pretty even.
