BOSTON, MA,  — Harris Corporation’s (NYSE:HRS) P7300 radio – a rugged and lighter weight multi-mode portable – is now available in the 700/800 MHz bands, offering the choice of additional frequency bands for public safety and other mission-critical users.

The P7300 is compliant with industry-standard APCO P25. It is future-ready and software upgradeable to APCO Project 25 Phase 2, the next-generation emerging standard for mission-critical communications.
