I see no reason for the Midland XTR mobile radio to have a problem at the date rollover from 1999 to 2000. There is no Time of Day, or Date/Year information stored in the Midland XTR mobile radio I have which in any way affects it's performance after December 31, 1999.

NOTE:  I have not seen anything official from Midland USA regarding Y2K compliance.

It's possible that Midland has posted Y2K information on their website WWW.MIDLANDUSA.COM
