    Spotted a yellow motorola XTS series portable radio on a FDNY fireman.

    Is the color of the radio supposed to mean seniority or rank. I've never seen before a yellow colored motorola xts portable radio on members of the FDNY. I couldn't tell if it was a xts5000 or xts3000, as I was across the street from the firehouse.

    xts5000 II to III

    I am pretty sure based on another thread that it is possible to get this upgrade done however I was curious what reasonable pricing on it was. Also, is it true that FDNY knobs are discontinued? How much do those cost? Thanks for any assistance.
