NXDN48 question

Postby lew247 » Wed Oct 14, 2015 5:29 pm

Question regarding digital - would anyone know
A certain shopping centre up the road from me uses NXDN48 equipment
It can be decoded on the pc easily, comes up as -NXDN48 CB VOICE
does anyone know if you can use one of the cheap chinese dPMR radios such as the Kirisun (not dmr) to listen to it or would it have to be a specialist Icom (IDAS) or Kenwood (NEXEDGE) radio to monitor it on?

A £20 Dongle & some free ware would do the job.
To use a radio, it would need to either work on the system you are wanting to listen to, or have what is called a discriminator tap modification done to it, to give a PC the right kind of audio. As sadly you cannot just feed the headphone audio into a PC & decode that way.

I already have it on the pc, its easy to do that
As to the radio I meant a specialist dpmr radio not an analogue one with a tap on the discriminator

A few people here do have the digital capable scanners & those are capable of receiving some, but not all digital modes.
As to putting a transceiver capable of full two ways comms onto someone else digital frequency, That I would rather not answer.

I'm not interested in transmitting anywhere illegal, I'm not that stupid
ALl I want to know is if I use a DPMR radio will it receive NDXN48 or do I have to use an Icom IDAS or Kenwood NEXEDGE to receive it

In a word, no it won't work. DPMR and NXDN are completely different digital formats. It's a bit like expecting a DAB radio to decode DMR or NXDN formats.

You'd need a portable NXDN radio (IDAS or Nexedge).
