Oops, too late to edit. I meant the 5550 is the upgraded 4550, with the full display.

Depends what one thinks expensive is. It's digital so it will cost more that the average amateur grade analog monobander.

$800-1200? I payed roughly $600 for my xts2500i. I would expect the trbo to be just as expensive as the p25 radios from Motorola. But the catch is trbo radios are not mil-spec or L/E approved right?

Brand new, the TRBO radios are cheaper than P25 models. However generally, yes the TRBO line is of a lower tier.

I just got a price in the very low $600s for a XPR5550 40 watt UHF from a local Motorola dealer last week.

They're not expensive at all.

The above pictured radios have only been on the market barely a year, & it's rare to see any used ones. The 2500's have been around for many years, & are available on the surplus market from many sources. Alt radios from China included. No comparison. However, the previous Trbo models, XPR4550, & 6550, which are still sold new, are available on the used market for $300, & they are not ALT radios, & come with tags.

I bought an APX6000 from a major Moto dealership and it cost me in excess of 2500 dollars but I spent the money. And thus I MIGHT have been the first private citizen to buy a new VHF APX6000.

Yes it was expensive, but I've paid more for a guitar. I've sold guitars for more than that. I have stereo equipment that retailed for a LOT more.

The quality and performance of the APX6K soon convinced me that it really IS worth its cost. That's a FINE radio.

Just got 2 of the 5550 Mobiles $785 each brand new in the box from a Motorola dealer, with the heavy duty mike also

Great analog radio for the price and 1000 channels
