    how is the 5000p radio different. wulfsberg has always had in recent years a p25 radio.
    is this a marketing trick or is the radio really different? btw technisonics has brought out a new product for the mil/law market and it is smaller and mounts in a dzus rail and is not so bulky. regards, George
    ps: I have purchased more than thirty of your wbg 5000 radios
