A lot of agencies here are getting rid of them. They are at the end of their service life. Everything is switching to the APX series because of the features and the Phase 2 compliance. MOTO is hinting (or outright saying) that the XTS line will no longer be supported in a few years.
TDMA will render the 5Ks useless. And since some of the new APX monobanders are just hitting the markets, they are the same price as the 5Ks.
Expect to see a lot more of this in coming years.
