Last Day to Order is September 30th
As a result of the introduction of smaller, digital-capable portable 2-way radios, Motorola Solutions will end production of the analog-only EX series. All of the VHF and UHF EX500, EX560XLS, and EX600XLS models are affected.
The last day to order is 9/30/13 and shipments to the US and Canada will end on 10/31/13.
Replacement is the SL 7550 and XPR 3000 Series
Motorola recommends replacing EX series radios with SL 7550 digital radios or the XPR 3000 series if analog is required. You will need the XPR 6000 series if you are still using analog LTR trunking.
Accessories and Depot Repair Support Continues for EX500/600 Series
EX series batteries, chargers, and audio accessories are not affected. They will continue to be available as well as depot repair service if needed.
