Default F62D / F52D on Kenwood conventional repeater

Anyone tried using the newer generation of ICOM radios on Kenwood NXDN conventional repeaters? Either in 6.25KHz or 12.5KHz. A local dealer told us both brand were not fully compatible and using Icoms on an NXR Repeater would result in a 3-4% BER even with a perfect signal to the repeater.

Can anyone with experience with both Idas and Nexedge can confirm or bust this?

No, I haven't, but I do run a NexEdge trunked system.

The NXDN protocol is "open", and in many cases, the radios are compatible between brands. I'm not sure where your dealer is getting the 3-4% Bit Error Rate thing from. I highly suspect he's trying to force you to buy "his" brand of radio.

I use my F62D on Kenwood daily. No issues. All my Icoms play well with both icom and kenwood repeaters really well.
