On 14-March-2022, I will be taking possession and custody of my brand new Motorola APX NEXT.
I get the latest and greatest Motorola equipment for free — I’m not use to changing out transceivers so frequently — after all, I’ve only had my brand new Motorla APX 8000HXE coming up on three years — it’s still a new transceiver for me!
All features on my new Motorola APX NEXT will be programmed and activated for me for free — I don’t need to pay for the subscription fees. Presently, my engineers are provisioning my Motorola APX NEXT for me — unfortunately, the code-plug is different and beyond my expertise, so the engineers gotta do all the programming for me — maybe, you guys know the technical process for activating and coding this thing; cuz, I don’t. I gave them the code-plug on my Motorla APX 8000HXE, so I know that’s one component of getting the NEXT up and running.
I have the option of getting the Motorola APX NEXT XE; but, I’m still equivocating on whether or not I will make that move. The regular Motorola APX NEXT can handle the junk I throw at it without having to go to the Motorola APX NEXT XE; and, the other reason is, I have a Motorla APX 8000HXE,
which is the top of the line for its series; hence, do I really need the APX NEXT in the XE version? I would only get it for the bright hi-viz green color, which I really dig — I will think about it.
I’m looking forward to integrating my Motorola APX NEXT into my volunteer work with the USCG(AUX) and the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.
The feature I’m most interested in using during my missions with the USCGAUX and Alameda County Sheriff’s Office is the smart-features that are built into the Motorola APX NEXT.
Of course, I still dig my Motorla APX 8000HXE; but, it’s always nice to have options — variety is the spice of life — yes?
My Motorla APX 8000HXE has been with me through some real tough excursions — in fact, during this trip in the ocean, my Motorola APX 8000 HXE got a good dose of the ocean splash during a change in tac; also,
So, even though I will be getting the Motorola APX NEXT, my Motorla APX 8000HXE will still be with me and remain in commission.
I just dig my Motorola APX 8000HXE — I have so much history with it! It is always with me — even on my daily hitting sessions at the tennis club.
I will update this BLOG and post pictures of my brand new, straight from the Motorola Factory, Motorola APX NEXT on 14-March-2022.
