  • Help with Harley and mobile radios....

    Does anyone running Harley motor units have issues with their mobile radios repeatedly malfunctioning? We have experienced a variety of problems from turning on and off on its own, lack of ability to transmit and very poor transmission quality. We think it may have something to do with the amount of vibration in the bike. The bikes are equipped with Motorola XTL 5000 radio units.

    If so, what have you done?

    As a side note....what comm. gear do you run? PVP, Setcom? Wired, Wireless? Does it work well, or not?

    Thanks!

      There is a big issue with bikes and radios. Before your debt bought bikes, they should have checked the tests ran by the Michigan State Police and the LASO/LAPD. Part of the testing regards radio issues. The LAPD uses Motorola Astros with digital. Not sure what LASO uses but they are still analog. LAPD is phasing out the Harley for BMW. No radio problems though. Just problems with the bikes falling apart. LASO hasn't had any problems but they're also on BMW. Some of my agency's stations still have a hog or 2. We were running the macon radio with analog but have recently gone to digital motorolas. No issues. Talk to a Harley dealer and see what the radio specs should be. Chances are the bikes power surge may be the problem.
      God made perfect cops.......The rest he put in cars.
