Kenwood NX-3820E Radio Product Description

The NX-3820E is a vehicle mobile radio in Kenwood’s high-performance Nexedge range. A multi-protocol digital radio designed to operate under NXDN or DMR digital and FM analogue protocols, it’s packed with convenient features and offers outstanding flexibility.

Because it supports digital and FM analogue operation simultaneously, the NX-3820E makes an ideal mobile control base for mixed fleets and is a great option for digital migration. While older analogue devices are being updated gradually to digital, the NX-3820E can keep communicating with all types of two way radio in the fleet.

The NX-3000 series offers future-proof flexibility with support for both NXDN and DMR digital protocols. In DMR mode, the industry standard, users have access to features such as call interrupt and dual slot direct mode, which doubles the number of channels from the 512 available as standard. NXDN provides excellent spectrum efficiency,
ensuring wide coverage and scalability, with the ability to scale up to large, high capacity networks through Type-C and Gen2 trunking. This includes the option to link up to 1000 sites.

The NX3820E is a UHF vehicle radio, operating at ultra high frequencies between 400-470 MHz. UHF frequencies are well suited to use in built-up urban environments as the shorter frequencies can cope better with obstacles, making the NX3820E perfect for security patrols in cities or town centres.

The NX3820E features a four-line display which can be used to view text messages sent from digital handsets. It includes a seven-colour LED indicator which shows current mode and functions, and has a port for connecting an external speaker as well as its own in-built cone.

For ease of use, the NX3820E comes packed with convenient features like Bluetooth® for hands-free operation while driving, with a choice of Bluetooth profiles for connecting different wireless accessories, so the radio can still be used even when someone is driving. Another highly useful feature is built-in GPS tracking, which means that even when the vehicle is in transit, its location can be monitored to help with work coordination across a large area.

Like all Nexedge devices, renowned Kenwood audio quality can be achieved with Active Noise Reduction (ANR). This trademark Kenwood Communications technology utilizes built-in DSP to digitally remove background noise, leaving only voice in transmission and guaranteeing outstanding audio clarity even when used in loud, noisy environments.

Other software features include DES and AES encryption, which means communications are kept secure by preventing eavesdropping. Kenwood also provides the option of software license certification, allowing users to customise the features available by programming their own.


All NX-3000 series radios require an Ofcom licence to operate.
