Buyer's Guide - Repeater Capable Radios

Two way radios in this category are business radios that can be used with a repeater. Repeater capable radios must be able to transmit on one frequency, and receive on a different frequency. Frequencies used for repeater communications are not pre-stored frequencies. Repeater frequencies are assigned by the FCC through the licensing process. So repeater capable radios must allow frequencies to be programmed into the radio once you have your frequency pair assigned from the FCC. These radios are sometimes called "fully programmable radios."
