Kenwood ProTalk NX-P1300AU At-A-Glance
Kenwood is updating the ProTalk TK Series radios with 6 new models in their "NX" ProTalk lineup. Known as the NX-P1000 Series, these new radios replace the older analog-only "TK" series with easier operation and superior performance. Plus they can be upgraded to support mixed mode analog and NXDN digital operation.
One great new feature of the NX-P1300AU series is the PTT button. These radios can be programmed to allow transmission on a second channel without actually switching channels, by pushing the PTT button to engage the second channel. This type of "dual transmit" feature is very useful in work environments where separate communications can be relayed to different groups on different channels at the push of the PTT button, greatly increasing efficiency and productivity.
The new NX-P1300AU Series radios are compatible with the legacy radios in the TK-2000/TK-3000 series, essentially replacing them.
Kenwood NX-P1300AU Secure Communication
Confidentiality in radio communications is a KENWOOD priority, and helping to maintain a high level of security in analog mode is a 16-code voice inversion scrambler, while robust NXDN Digital 15 Bit encryption is available in digital mode.
The NX-P1300AU replaces the TK-3402 radio. The NX-P1300AU series operates on 451-470 MHz VHF frequencies in the business band. The radio features a 7 color LED indicator light, multiple scan modes, lone worker mode and emergency function. This radio also supports radio-to-radio cloning with an optional cloning cable and is fully PC programmable with an optional programming cable and software.
Kenwood NX-P1300AU Upgrade to Digital
Also, the NX-P1300AU series gives you an easy migration to digital. You can start with an analog only model, and then latter on it can be upgraded to NXDN digital for mixed mode operation at any time, you simply purchase an optional software and license key package.
Kenwood NX-P1300AU Accessory Compatible
All six new Kenwood models are designed with compatibility in mind. These new radios can use the same antennas, battery packs and chargers used with the legacy TK-2400 and TK3400 series radios. Plus, they have the standard Kenwood 2-pin (K1 / KA) style connector, which means you can use all your earpieces, speaker microphones, and other audio accessories for your existing Kenwood ProTalk radios with these new radios. Kenwood wanted this transition to be as easy as possible to upgrade from their legacy products to their new radios.

Radio Programming Options
The following does not apply to FRS, MURS, GMRS, LTE, Satellite, or IP radios.
Most business radios aren't ready to use out-of-the-box. So radio programming is needed to set the frequencies in the radio. For some radios the frequencies can be set through a menu interface. While other radios must be programmed using a PC, radio software, and a cable to connect the radios.
Here are your programming options:
- We can program your radios - with radio orders
- We provide basic radio programming for radios ordered through us. See the description below of basic radio programming.
- Email us your Frequencies & Call Sign - the FCC requires dealers to verify your license before we program.
- Please allow 1-2 days for first-time setup of radio programming.
- Due to staffing limitations, we are not able to program radios purchased from other dealers.
- If you've ordered from us before we have your information stored.
- Connect Systems (all models): You can purchase software and cables from us.
- Kenwood ProTalk Business Radios (NX-P1300/NX-P1200 series, TK series, PKT)
