|Kirisun FP520S and FP560S|
These radios are perfect for non technical users, who just want a radio to work, but they also have some fun functions for the technical user such as FPP (Front Panel Programming) if you have the password to unlock it!
The model numbers for these 2 radios are FP520S and FP560S. As is common with radio products, there is a display version and a non-display version. The display version is the one with the higher model number.
The Icom and Kenwood use the same vocoder, and the same dPMR446 standard, so theoretically they should work together. The Kirisuns use a different vocoder so won't be able to hear or talk to these radios in digital mode.
That brings the total number of dPMR446 radios currently available to 4! The old Icom, the new Kenwood, and the 2 new Kirisuns.
Kirisun originally wanted to use the AMBE+2 vocoder, but then changed their minds and decided to use the newer and (apparently) slightly better sounding N100 vocoder. Of course, the benefit of this is that it should sound better, but it also means that it won't work with either the Icom or the Kenwood dPMR radios. I couldn't find any additional information on this vocoder at the time of writing, so if you find anything, please leave me a comment so I can update the post.
