Alfonso Faustino: For me, it’s all about the RX and TX

For me, I need my transceiver to always TX when I push the PTT, and I need it RX when I don’t push the PTT…and, that’s the reason I would take an old model Motorola with no features, like my 4-channel Motorola Radius CP200 (VHF) or my 16-Channel Motorola Radius CP200 (UHF) over the newest amateur transceiver like the new Yaesu FT3 or an Anytone 878.

My old Motorola Radius CP200s can out TX and RX any of the newer feature-rich amateur transceivers out there. I also know that it is 100% reliable, unlike the newest feature-rich amateur transceivers.

I use the UHF version more; because, most of the repeaters near me are UHF.

Both are durable and reliable in all conditions; and, it will always provide reliable high quality RX and TX.

My Motorola Radius CP200s will RX and TX just as good as my brand new Motorola APX 8000HXE.

According to my research, Motorola’s primary goal is quality RX and TX; and, all the casing and communications technology is designed to provide a protective platform to enhance the RX and TX qualities of all their transceivers.

No added feature in the Motorola design will impede the RX and TX goals nor replace the RX and TX goals of Motorola. In other words, Motorola ain’t gonna sacrifice sound in order to accommodate a 200,000 list of HAM operators’ name, city, and call-sign so you can see it pop on your screen.

Thats the reason, regardless of the lack of features of an older model Motorola, like my Radius CP200, an older model Motorola will still sound as good as my brand new Motorola APX 8000HXE and way better than any brand new feature-rich amateur transceiver.

So, for me, it’s all about the RX and TX; and, Motorola does it best — all the features in a Motorola transceivers do not interfere with the company’s primary goals: effective, efficient, and 100% reliable RX and TX.
