The Kenwood NXR-1700E is a compact, multi-mode conventional repeater – key digital communications equipment that is a KENWOOD specialty.

The NXR-1700E supports the features and performance to make it a worthy successor to the existing DMR and NXDN repeaters. The CAI (Common Air Interface) is chosen when ordering to set up individual units for either DMR or NXDN, with the option of keeping the factory default setting of FM analogue.
