No! And why would you think that? Sorry if that is the way you took it. But I guess I did not make myself clear enough , but it was basically directed to the idiots in city government that play into sales pitch from those that sell them crappy radio system. Sorry for any miss understanding. Merry Christmas!you calling me stupid?
Wow, they were told it won’t work as designed, and now they know it won’t work.
Or you get "Well XXX product is no good because it can't blend eggs, talk to Mars or cook a chicken, you need MY system cause its the greatest in the world!"Just another example of non-techies making techie decisions without the benefit of impartial professional advice. Happens all the time these days, and the Boards are full of such examples.
South Windsor PD is using some Kenwood gear, but they are using the equipment in P25 or APCO-25 mode, not NexEdge. If they were using NexEdge, you would not be listening to them on a scanner.hi all i know one other department in ct that is using nexedge radios southwindsor pd just switch to uhf from 800 and they are digital in uhf mode southwindsor pd sounds pretty good i listen to them from time to time sounds alot better then apco25
I have both an NX-700 & 800 to play with unless my boss says he needs them for a customer; but we always have spares around. I have used them both conventionally on the amateur bands, and the 800 in NXDN mode. We are keeping these 2 because they have the PA & Horn option kit installed that not too many customers want---Now how are you listen to NEXEDGE?
This isn't just a Kenwood issue. Motorola sales guy sold a VHF repeater to our PD a few years back. I got a call one day to come down and "pick up a package". When I got there I found a VHF Quantar and a box of stuff. This was the first I'd hear of this. The police chief wanted me to install the "new radio system" so they could get off our 800MHz trunked system.You can't just go down to Wal-Wart or who ever and say I want that off the shelf. But it happens.
