Thanks Chickenhawk for this great review... I am planning on getting this product but couldn't find a good review. With this I think I am 100% convinced.

Just FYI, the DTR 410/550/650 are being discontinued. They're still great radios and you'll have no problem finding them used.

The DLR series and more recently the DTR600/700 are the replacements.

Just to add to my friend's post, the new DTR radios are now on the market. They replace the now-discontinued DTR410, DTR550 and DTR650 radios. Plus, the new DTR600 (with 30 channels) and DTR700 (with 50 channels) use the same programming and software as the DLR1020 and DLR1060. Programming is MUCH simpler!

Motorola is 100% supporting their licence-free spread spectrum radios, and there are now two series - the DLR with their more compact design, and the DTR with more channels and a slightly larger form factor and LCD screen.

Existing users can still integrate their older DTR radios with the newer DLR radios and the newest DTR600 and DTR700. It takes a bit of work and some careful reading and programming, but can be done. They will all still talk together.

There are dealers who still have an existing stock of the DTR550 and many users are selling off their used models. You can still get new batteries for them and they all fit the same accessories, so this will be an option as well. Considering the first generation of the digital DTR radios came out in 2005, this shows how well-made they are.
