Default XL-200P Harris and VHF analog

Are Harris XL-200P portable radios good performers on VHF analog?

Compared to? I have a handful in service and am very happy with them but without context of the user requirements and operational environment no one can answer your question.

Hello, thanks for the reply. As compared to a Kenwood TK-2180, in daily law enforcement in weak VHF signal areas.

From a LE use perspective it does very well in terms of features, audio quality and ergonomics. It is a very expensive option just for VHF analog though.

I have a requirement for about 30 VHF analog radios for FD interoperability and found it more cost effective to deploy the XG-15p in VHF alongside the existing 800MHz XG-75pe radios the users had than to migrate them to the 200p. While a fully featured 200p is still cheaper under most contracts than a typically featured APX6000, it still comes in heavy for analog conventional use.

Also, keep an eye out for the XL-185p, it is a single band version of the 200p. At the moment it is only offered in 800MHz and 900Mhz but that could possibly change at some point.

Not positive off the top of my head, would need to go back and see what the coverage spread is but I kind of doubt it.

Tried doing to ham 902/927 split on an XL200P today. No good - invalid frequency.

Also the XL200P WILL NOT do 5 kHx operation on ham UHF frequencies. YUCK!

My APX8000 works fine wideband on both 2 meters and 440.

Good to know RocketNJ. As this radio gains popularity, maybe a software upgrade will fix this?
