Default Single remote head, dual band

Does anyone out there make something like the Kenwood TK-x90 radios that has some more modern features? I'm mainly looking into something that's digital, with some backwards compatibility to LTR on both VHF and UHF, however I can't seem to find anything that will let me put my chassis where I have more room and only have one control head up front.

I don't know if the Kenwood NX line will do LTR or not but that would be an option. Kenwood's first generation of high power P25 mobiles were next to identical to the x90 line. Vertex may have something similar since their VX6000 is simply a modified TK-x90.

Simoco has a radio single head option on the SRM mobiles (which won't get you LTR but will get you MPT1327).

Tait has options for single head dual radio but as far as LTR is concerned, I don't know.

GME has a dual radio configuration for their CM60 mobiles but I believe Phase 1 trunking is all they are capable of.

Motorola's got the APX line which will do digital or Type II.
If a repeater IDs and no one is on frequency to hear it, does it even make a sound? Yes, because KC5MVZ is monitoring you…

NX-5000 line will do LTR.

An NX-5700 VHF deck and a NX-5800 UHF deck with a single control head isn't cheap, but it's cheaper than many other options.

The radio will do P25 1&2, NXDN, DMR and analog. More options than you can shake a stick at.
