Motorola DLR1020 At-A-Glance

The DLR1020 is an ultra-small, lightweight radio with static-free audio. It has 2 channels and 1 watt of power with potential coverage for up to 300,000 square feet or 20 floors. This is digital communications for users who want a simple easy to use solution.

Interference from other radios outside your organization can be a distraction at best. With the DLR1020 radio this is a thing of the past. The DLR1020 uses Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology. Your communications are not just more reliable, they are free from interference and provide greater privacy than typical radios.

The Motorola DLR1020 meets test requirements from Military Standards 810 C, D, E, F and G for shock, vibration, dust and extreme temperatures. It is built with a polycarbonate, anti-microbial housing with built-in resistance to bacteria and mold on the surface of the radio.

Best of all, the Motorola DLR1020 is license free.

The DLR1020 radio is ideal for use in restaurants, retail, schools, event coordination, and other operations that require business grade communications without a FCC business license.

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:

  1. We can program your radios - with radio orders 
    • We provide basic radio programming for radios ordered through us. See the description below of basic radio programming.
    • 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.
    • Due to staffing limitations, we are not able to program radios purchased from other dealers.
  2. Match to your Previous Order
    • If you've ordered from us before we have your information stored.
  3. You can program the radio(s)
    • Connect Systems (all models): You can purchase software and cables from us. 
    • Kenwood ProTalk Business Radios (NX-P1300/NX-P1200 series, TK series, PKT)
      • Have pre-stored frequencies and you can easily program these radios through the radio's menu interface.
      • Custom frequencies will require dealer programming.
    • Icom (all models): Icom no longer allows dealers to sell software and cables over the internet. You may call us to discuss your options.
    • Motorola Business Radios (models beginning with CLP. CLS, RM, RD):
      • Have pre-stored business frequencies (Part 90). Software to program these radios is available on the Motorola website.
      • Just go to the product page on Motorola's website and you can download it for free. We can sell you the cable.
      • Custom frequencies will require dealer programming.
    • Motorola Commercial Radios (models beginning with CP, CM, MagOne):
      • Software to program these can be purchased directly from Motorola. We can sell you the cable.
    • Vertex Standard Radios:  You can purchase software and cables from us. (some cables have been discontinued)
  4. 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.
