Radio Programming Options

The following does not apply to FRS, MURS, GMRS, LTE, Satellite, or IP radios.

Most business radios aren't ready to use out-of-the-box. So radio programming is needed to set the frequencies in the radio. For some radios the frequencies can be set through a menu interface. While other radios must be programmed using a PC, radio software, and a cable to connect the radios.

Here are your programming options:

  • You can program the radio(s)
    • For radios with pre-stored frequencies you can easily program them through the radio's menu interface.
    • For PC programmable radios you will need the programming cable(s) and software. In many cases you can purchase this from us.
  • We can program your radios
    • Email us your Frequencies & Call Sign - the FCC requires dealers to verify your license before we program.
    • Please allow 1-2 days for first-time setup of radio programming.
  • Match to your Previous Order
    • If you've ordered from us before we have your information stored.
  • If you don't have a FCC license we can help you apply for one
    • These licenses are for businesses, non-profit organizations, local and state government agencies.
    • We do all the work! Give us a call at 855-289-2929.

What is included in Basic Radio Programming?

Basic radio programming is designed to get you up and running with a configuration which includes:

  • Up to 16 channels programmed to your FCC assigned frequencies (simplex or duplex)
  • A default configuration of key functions

For customers who already have radios we will match from your existing radio of the same model (requires you to send us a radio).
