What Other Motorola Gear Do You Have?

Postby Jim1348 » Sat Mar 17, 2012 5:15 pm

Yes, we all enjoy are XTS5000s, etc. (Hey, some of us "cut our teeth" on HT220s!) Waht I want to know is what other Motorola equipment do you have or have you had in the past? Mine is pretty modest. I have:

-Motorola Defy Rugged Android Smartphone

I think that is it right now. I had a blue Motorola T shirt, but who knows where that ended up. I also had a Swiss Army type knife that had Motorola on the side. It had long since worn off, however. It was "donated" to TSA essentially in Atlanta last November when I realized it was in my pocket and I forget to put it in my checked luggage. I simply threw it away.

Anyway, does anybody here have a Motorola GPS? What about the Motorla tablets? I'll be there might even be folks here that have the Motorola Rugged Notebook computers!

I've got a Motorola DSL modem, a Motorola H720 bluetooth headset (GREAT battery life and works great with my XTS5K BluComm adapter), several Talkabout FRS/GMRS bubble packs, and an old 1965 AM/FM table radio (works great) and a same vintage mid 1960's portable AM/FM radio (also still working great).
The views here are my own and do not represent those of anyone else or the company, the boss, his wife, his dog or distant relatives.

My first Motorola item was a flip phone home cordless phone. Used to carry it around the neighborhood pretending it was a Cell phone. My first radio was a pair of Radio Shack PRS-102s GMRS radios. They were 10-channel Radio Shack branded Motorola Spirit radios (the predecessor to the Talkabout DPS). They worked brilliantly and I still miss them. They were stolen from me at some point back in 1999.

  • Secure Clear Cordless Flip Phone.
  • Radio Shack PRS-102
  • Motorola MPX200 Smart phone. The first Windows Smartphone and worst phone I've ever owned.
  • Various Talkabouts
  • Cable Modem
  • Cable Box
  • The processor in my old Mac (before they switched to Intel)
  • An assortment of Motorola National Service shirt patches

1962: Motorola X23B AM transistor radio that used a round #206 9 volt battery - Still works great.
(Got it as a Christmas present and fell asleep that night listening to "A Christmas Carol"
starring Basil Rathbone as Scrooge. Program was broadcast on KOIL 1290 - Omaha)

1965: Motorola AM-FM Stereo Console with record turntable - Still works great.

1966: Motorola Quasar 23" color television with the "works" in the drawer - In storage.
(Both stereo and tv are in wood cabinets with French Provencial legs - as is the dining
room table, chairs, coffee table, end tables, etc.)

We had a couple of DCP501 home entertainment systems in my house at one time. Comcast wouldn't activate the internal cable box but they worked great for everything else. I only got rid of mine when HDMI started becoming ubiquitous.

Back in high school I made friends with the local cell phone store manager and he'd give me boxes (literally) of DynaTACs and accessories whenever I popped in. At one time I had at least 20 in different colors and variations, but I ended up tossing all but a few when the batteries leaked and damaged the guts. Never got one activated though.. a late-90s analog activation was out of my high school kid budget. :lol: If you still want to rock the retro cellular now, there is a guy on Ebay selling an activation service for CDMA StarTACs on PagePlus.

For the right price (free or next to it) I'd love to pick up a MicroCITE portable AMPS site to fiddle around with. The only hard part of getting one running would be emulating the carrier switch.

1. Ability to use fine motor skills
2. Presence of mind

CDMA StarTACs aren't that retro. They are more than capable of working on any other CDMA network if they allowed new activations for phones without embedded GPS.

I bet their are some still active on Verzon.

I've cycled through the Motorola V3M and VE20 over the past 6 years (those things were tanks). Just recently picked up a Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx. Also have a Surfboard Modem running to the desktop and a cable box as well.
