Will this be able to receive the freqs that my Uniden scanner won't ?
It won't receive any frequencies that your scanner can't, but it will do NXDN just fine.
As was stated, the Kenwood version of the trunking protocol will not permit a Kenwood NXDN radio to receive a trunked signal, even with the RAN set to 0. I've heard the Icom radios will. Issue is that, currently, the Icom radios won't do Kenwood Trunking and the Kenwood radios won't do Icom trunking.
The standard encryption will get in the way, so make sure you know that what you are trying to listen to is encrypted or not.
NX-210 is a nice radio. I have about 300 of the NX-410's (the 800MHz version) here on my system at work. Good solid radios.
