    Default Harris and L3 are merging

    This may be old news to some....

    Harris and L3 are merging. This applies to the land-mobile radio operations in Lynchburg, Virginia too.

    I heard about this awhile ago but it will be interesting to see if the LMR side is affected in any way. We need Harris to be able to compete with Mother Moto so that quality can improve on both sides.

    That's not likely to be the end result. More like higher prices.

    Wow, about time we had some serious competition for M, L3 is a HUGE door into the military defense contracts, not that Harris wasn't already there but L3 sure won't hurt. Cool!!!!!! (just read the other responses, we're all saying/hoping for the exact same thing) cute

    I also suspect no change in LMR. If anything, it may get sold to generate cash as a result of the purchase.
