Motorola Radios

Post by yardbirdjr »

Hello All!

This may sound like a stupid request, but I am going to ask anyway?

I am looking for a complete listing of all Motorola Programmable Portables & Mobiles from the beginning to the present. And the year they came out on the market.

Ex. STX, Mtx.ect.

Just curious to see how many I have in my collection.

Please post or PM me

Thanks

David

Slight correction on the XTS5000. I too thought it originally came out in 2003, but a member here told me he had one in 2001. Whether it was just a test unit, or an actual working "official XTS5000" is another thing, but he DID say they were around in 2001.

So noted, I just recall the literature dating back to early 2003.
I wish I could find some of those "communications equipment buyer's guides" I used to have, I had one from 1982, 1983-87 and 1990.
That is where I gleamed my info from. Read them over and over when I was in high school "way back when" dreaming of owning everything in them. By now I pretty much have!

Don't forget the Motorola Radius P500.

It was a unique that it was basically a Motorola Radius Dealer Line P200 except in 800MHz analog/non trunked conventional only.

It was a way for Motorola back then to allow Motorola Radius Dealers to sell 800MHz non trunked conventional only portables.

It did not sell too much since most folks that were using 800MHz at that time were using 800MHz on trunked systems.Not on conventional only.
In Memory of those that serve.

Radios I currently own:

2-qty APX7000 UHF R2/700-800MHz M3

Same here ! I've owned at one point or another just about all of them (never owned a Waris series radio though).

I think the best one I've owned thus far is hands down my XTS5000, just for the FPP feature alone. Back in the late 90's we would've thought that a FPP Motorola radio would be an impossibility :)
