Motorola SL7550 MotoTrbo Radio

This is the Motorola MOTOTRBO SL7550. This is the world's thinnest, lightest, digital DMR radio in its class as print. The MOTOTRBO SL7550 is ideal for high-end users that need a flexible, robust, digital solution that combines the best of form and function.

It is a HAM radio from Motorola Mototrbo Digital called DMR see DMR-MARC Networked for your repeater location near you.

I've enjoyed using it like no other HAM Digital (Icom DStar or Yaesu Digital)

This radio is a bit different than most Motorola products as it doesn't take a special programming cable. Just a micro USB to USB cable will let you program. That is also how the radio charges. It programs with the standard Trbo CPS. Antenna is the 438-470mhz unit.
