About the Motorola RDX Series Radios

There's a reason these radios are so popular. The Motorola RDX Series radios were designed specifically for business usage. RDX radios boast exceptional audio quality along with industrial design and performance. They meet IP54/55 and Military Spec 810 C, D, E, and F standards for shock, rain, humidity, salt fog, vibration, sand, dust, and temperature.

Motorola has made sure that chatter and interference will not be a problem with their RDX series radios. These models operate on frequencies reserved for businesses, and support 122 private line codes (83 digital) per frequency.

Concerned about audio quality? Motorola's RDX series radios are 30% louder than even the highly regarded XTN and AX series. Audio clarity has been improved from previous models as well.

Worried about setup time? RDX series radios can be configured through Motorola's free PC based Customer Programming Software. Settings can also be easily cloned from one radio to another, making it easier than ever to expand your fleet. The Customer Programming Software (CPS) works with any computer web browser. Profiles interchange with Motorola RM Series radios.

Wondering about compatibility? The Motorola RDX series is compatible with all Motorola XTN, CLS and Spirit professional two way radios. Some users of XTN series VHF radios may need to change frequencies to be compatible with RDX series radios.

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)

      • 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.
