Was wondering what brand of radio's mobile and portable officers prefer?
I personally like Motorola especially the HT1000's those are great radios. :D

HT1000 probably... the HT1250's are a step up (LCD screen showing a text channel name and some other features), but they are not as durable as the 1000's. I would have to say Motorola all the way, any model... proven reliability!

Yeah, Mike, the HT1000 were great, right up until they disappeared from the supply room! :evil:
I like the HT1250's a lot. They have some real cool features and when we bought them we paid about half what we paid for the HT1000's.
I liked the GP 300's too. Pretty basic, nothing cool, but tough as heck. I dropped one out the 3rd floor of a building one time trying to control a 320 lb postictal siezure kid :D . I went down to get it, and it still worked - not even a scratch!!!!!!!!!!

We had Ht-1000 and Visars. All the officers received Ht-1250s take home with all the bells and whistles. I worked for another department where I had a Motorola Saber III Astro (nice radio). At one time we had Standards and some of those older huge Motorolas (bricks).

I would be happy with a portable that doesn't eat the whole battery 5 hours into the shift.

We have Motorola CommandPlus for the base unit and Motorola mobile and portables. The new batteries for the portables only last 6 hours and that is only if the officers turn them off until they get out of the cruiser. Also we lost our FCC license a while back (DO NOT ASK) so we are borrowing a frequency from a town North of us. This is causing major interference issues and eveyone is having a hard time receiving and transmitting. The problem will be fixed when we get a new frequency.
