Default Kenwood NX-820 Programming Issue

Good morning....me again! a couple years ago you guys helped bail me out of a confusing issue I had, so here I am with my latest!


Received 4 new units of Kenwood NX-820HG-K radios for our manufacturing facility. When I attempt to program, I get the following error message:


Check model name, market code, display type.


Here are my details:

Using software KPG-141DN version 5.21

The above mentioned radios have a sticker on them stating "Type-D". And on the box the label not only says "TYPE D" but also "Trunking Firmware".

I'm thinking my dealer has sent me a version that I don't need or can use. We don't do trunking. Just simple repeater operation, either analog or digital.

I've asked my dealer for help on why I can't communicate with this latest batch of radios, and they are "waiting on a response from Kenwood". So I figured i'd skip that and go straight to the experts......you guys!

Thank you!

You need KPG-176DN to program those as they are Type-D. The NX-x20 series radios have been discontinued and you can now only buy them Type-D.

I assume that software version (176) will also allow for programming these radios in a "non-trunked" environment?

Thank you Mr mmckenna! I was hoping you would see my post, as you gave me some helpful info 2 years ago. You guys and this forum are the greatest! I'm going to tell my dealer he should subscribe! LOL He could answer my questions quicker that way!
