Motorola CP185
     Replaces the Motorola CP125


There have been many models of Motorola commercial grade radios that are well suited to business usage including the P100 series, the HT90 series and the GP300 (a longtime favorite).  Several years ago, the  P1225, and SP50 series were popular but are no longer current.  More recently, the CP150 and CP200 became very popular with both public safety and corporate users. Still, these radios incorporated features and capabilities that were not required for construction, manufacturing, school, and security users who needed a quality product at moderate cost.  To address that need, Motorola introduced the CP125 in August of 2005. The CP125 an CP150 were then replaced by the CP185.  The CP125 and CP150 will no longer be available for ordering after June 30, 2009.

The CP185 comes in two different models - the 5 watt standard VHF model with up to 4 channel capability and the 4 watt UHF model with the same features.  Like all Motorola commercial grade radios, the CP125 is subjected to MIL-SPEC 810 eleven point testing, IPX4 rain testing, and Accelerated Life Testing.  Features such as an LCD display, internal VOX capability, and PC programmable frequencies rather than a fixed internal list are generally found only in more expensive radios.  The CP185 measures just 4.82 x 2.28 x 1.46" and weighs a mere 12.38 ounces.
