Puxing PX-508D

A front view of the radio
A dPMR radio with IP67 waterproof rating available in UHF or VHF. Capable of doing 3.125KHz steps which means it could be used on certain channel allocations such as the dPMR446 licence free channels in Europe. However, this radio would not be legal on those channels due to the power output which is over 0.5W.

As with many Chinese radios, this radio can be customised by the factory with your own brand. It is also sold as:

  • Radtel RT-14D
  • NRC DigiA

Please leave a comment if you know any other names this radio is sold under (or to add to any other information in this post).

Note: There is also the Puxing PX-508 which is the FM only version with no dPMR. Make sure to get the version with the D on the end if you want dPMR.

The PX-558D seems to be very similar if not the same as the PX-508D.

Known to work with other dPMR radios using the AMBE+2C vocoder. Tested with:
  • Zastone ZT-9908
  • TYT DM-UVF10 / Retevis RT2
  • Puxing MD-500
If you have used this radio with any other radios, please leave a comment so I can add them to the list.

The accessory connector of the PX-508D

The programming cable needed seems to be the Motorola MagOne A8 style cable, but this is not verified. It can be seen in the software that it must connect through a COM port, but some cables have the COM to USB adaptor integrated.

I have confirmed that it works with accessories with the MagOne A8 connector. For the radio to be waterproof, the cover must be on the accessory port.
