Default 5800K2 Firmware v2.52

Today I updated my NX5800K2 from v2.51 to v2.52 . I've been told that there were some fixes to DMR operation. Does anyone know what the change log or fixes were?

Kenwood doesn't provide changelogs. At least not to dealers.

Default DMR End of Transmission Tone

Is there a configuration setting in KPG-D1 that enables a DMR end of transmission tone on the receiver similar to that of Motorola's? I am trying to describe the tone that one hears when on a MotoTrbo radio when the other radio releases their PTT.


I have found a setting to enable what I'll call a "roger beep" on the transmitter but that's not what I'm interested in.

There is, but it is annoying.
In the tones section the end of reception tone maybe turned off. I'm not I front of my laptop to name it. But hit F1 and you will be able to search the help files for it. It's not talk proceed, and definitely not the ptt eot.

You just want to hear the drop of signal, not send it.

It seems that the "carrier drop" tone feature that was previously present no longer sounds after the last firmware update.

Go into your Personality (the one for DMR), and look there.
That's where I had to look last time, I think.

I've changed my power on tone to the tune of "CHARGE!" Gives me that extra boost of energy when I fire up the radio now.

Can someone post up a video or audio file of the tone it makes on DMR when keying up and when someone unkeys. I would like to see how annoying this feature really is.

That is how I am configured. I no longer hear what I'll call "that annoying carrier drop tone" since I upgraded the firmware from 2.51 to 2.52.


I'm wondering if it was a non-configurable feature that was removed with the update. All I was told is that if I used DMR that I would want to apply the update.

I'll try to get some info tomorrow.

My source did not have detail readily available to that level. Best that we can figure is that there was a change made between 2.51 and 2.52 that addressed a busy channel lockout issue with DMR that MAY have caused the drop tone to be removed.

Evans (and everyone else), I apologize if this has been asked before (possibly even by me). But is there a way in KPG-D1 to paste or otherwise import data like individual radio IDs?

I have a whole bunch of IDs I want to put in my radios, but the prospect of having to type them into the software by hand rather than C&P them from Excel or even import from CSV is putting me off the task.

Yes, I've copied our state DMR IDs over. Copy the cells you have on your KPG-D1 and paste it over to Excel. It will put a header on top of the contact information.

I made changes, copied all cells and went back to the ID table and clicked on the edge and pasted. Just make sure to select the row with the header information as well.

Below is the headers it put on the excel spreadsheet.

How have I missed that before?! Works perfectly for P25 (if a bit slow). Thanks!
