    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

My guess would be an HT1000 handles better as a hammer than a GP300. Of course, that's the GP300 model without the handlebar attachment, mind you...

Does that answer your question?

HT1000 Hands down. I have purchased several hundred radios for a previous job. The HT1000's were far superior to the GP300's.

The only radio more popular among my troops was the P200. The older guys liked that radio. It was our "brick" radio. Not quite as big as the old Motorola and Unidens I have sen, but it was the largest of any radios we ever used.

They're both great radios but for durability, I'll have to give the nod to the GP300. The feature-set on the HT1000 is a bit more advanced and is still a really nice HT. I honestly don't think you'd be disappointed with either one.

I happen to own both...the HT1000 does more than the GP300, but in my opinion the 300 is much more durable.
which one scrapes the ice off the windshield better?

I don't remember where I got it from, it could have been there. But yes, I have used it there for sure. Quite fitting!
