For the Kenwood NX720/820-series
and the TK-7360/8360-series radios we have a network interface and a full virtual control head.
You can now remote control your Nexedge radio both in a local LAN and over
The virtual control head gives you full control of the radio, just as if you
were sitting in front of it. All buttons can be accessed from your touch screen,
with the PC mouse or by short cuts on the standard keyboard. And the whole display
is replicated on the virtual control head.
The Virtual Control Head has an option to activate a numeric keyboard. This
is useful if you send many selective calls or if you have many channels to
select. For example if you use the radio for marine VHF channels, it is faster
to select channel with two keys than to use the step arrows.
The radio can simultaneously be used as a standard radio with its control
head, microphone and speaker.
All connections are made from the rear 15 pin connector on the radio.
The radio shall be programmed with:
GPIO Pin 10
programmed for external PTT active low. (Extended function, AUX-Tab)
The External PTT
(voice) shall be connected to the MI2 line. (Extended function, Modulation
Line-Tab (only NX-series))
Only NX-series: To get the audio in and out of the back connector, two jumpers needs to be
moved in the radio. See the installation manual for details.
NX-series: Network Interface 3009/29
TK-series: Network Interface 3009/33
Examples of use
- Local use when several dispatchers want to share one radio
- Remote use where a dispatcher at one location want to talk to radio
users at a different location
- CrossPatch between analogue radio and other two way radio, like Nexedge, DMR,
Tetra or MPT
