Motorola APX 6000XE Digital Portable Radio

MOTOROLA APX 6000XE SINGLE-BAND DIGITAL PORTABLE RADIO
OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE IN EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS
In the heat of a wildfire or the smoke of a structure fire, you can’t afford to struggle with controls or strain to hear commands. You need a radio so reliable and responder-focused, it’s second nature to use it. Working with first responders around the world, Motorola developed APX™ radios to be the safest and toughest – and to deliver innovative technology in an ultra-rugged, glove-friendly form.
Motorola’s APX 6000XE is the “lightweight heavyweight” – a small, single band radio with extreme ergonomics and excellent audio – one that takes on the tough tasks faced daily by fire fighters and other EMS personnel. It’s the two-way radio specifically engineered for extreme conditions.
Exceptionally Clear, Loud Audio
Racing to an emergency, you need crystal-clear audio — and the APX 6000 delivers. Its dual-microphone design locates the talker while suppressing background noise in the most demanding environments. Plus, a unique speaker grill design improves water runoff to keep communications going strong. Together, these technological breakthroughs produce audio that is comfortably heard and clearly understood, enabling life-saving communications to thrive.
Real-World Ruggedness
Everything about the APX 6000 is designed with first responders in mind – starting with the large Monochromatic LCD top display of the Model 1.5. With its intelligent lighting, the top display enables you to see information at a glance while the radio is fixed to your belt. Models 2.5 and 3.5 feature a dual-display: the aforementioned top display plus a ruggedized front panel color display. The enlarged keypad has increased spacing to enable easy navigation of buttons and better visibility. And the oversized controls are easy to operate when you’re wearing bulky gloves – including the volume knob, channel selector, and X-large emergency button. With its rugged MIL specs, FM certification, and optional color housings, the APX 6000XE is the performer you can rely on in the harshest environments.
Focus On The Task, Not The Technology
Whether you’re patrolling the border, containing a fire, or directing a multiagency response, the APX 6000 turns mission critical into mission complete.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread in the United States and across the globe, we want to let everyone know that Communications Electronics’number one priority is to keep our employees, partners, and customers safe. Here is an update on preparations and steps we have taken to date. Two weeks ago, CE assembled a cross-disciplinary COVID-19 Management Team to actively monitor the situation and make recommendations to leadership. We have been assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant, and following recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local authorities. We’ve assembled guidance for our employee teams, pursuant to these recommendations.

As you know, the situation is evolving rapidly, and COVID-19 is affecting people differently, depending on their location and situation. As a result, flexible solutions are needed. CE Senior Management is considering all options, including the possibility of asking staff to work remotely.

While we remain focused on the health and safety of our staff and those around us, we also remain committed to serving our customers. Fortunately, we have technology in place and significant experience with working remotely. We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can continue to deliver uninterrupted, high quality service. Operational teams have been working to identify potential needs and strategies associated with full-virtual delivery of services. Project managers and supervisors are actively having preparedness discussions with our teams. Our IT team has been reviewing and testing systems and protocols, to ensure necessary tools and support for staff to operate virtually. Everyone has a role to play.

If you have questions or feedback, you can reach the COVID-19 Management Team at Safety@Talkcei.com.

Being flexible and able to overcome big challenges is part of what makes us who we are. We have the infrastructure, skills, and desire to support each other, while providing the highest level of service to our customers. Obviously, this is a fast moving, fluid situation affecting our country and the world. We will update our guidance and decisions as the situation changes. Please continue to monitor the CDC Website for updates.

We hope that you and your family are well,
