*These radios DO NOT come programmed out of the box, we need to program them or you do in order for them to talk to each other... call us with any questions 800-552-0707


OPTION 1 (You have no existing radios or you need more channels)

If these are new radios for your facility and you have never had your own FCC License we can do that for you.  Just select FCC License above and add one to your cart.  Adding one FCC Frequency to your cart will get us to handle the paperwork and submit for a license that will give you two private channels that are licensed to your business and facility.  The license is good for as many radios as you order now and in the future for 10 years.  (After 10 years there is a renewal that you'll get in the mail that is currently only $100 for another 10 years)  These frequencies are then owned by you and your facility and keep the traffic on them to your business only, they are private and no one else owns them or will have the right to talk on them.  We can get you more than 2 private channels for $50 per additional channel up to a maximum of 5 channels.  Need more than that, just give us a call!


OPTION 2 (You have existing radios you want these radios to talk with)

If you would like these radios to talk with your existing radios we can program them for you by selecting the appropriate drop down box above and then you providing the frequencies you need us to program into the radios.  If you select this option we need you to input the following info in the text box above:


Channel 1  TX 457.625   RX 457.625 PL/DPL 67.0

Channel 2  TX 455.625   RX 455.625  PL/DPL 67.0

OR just enter "You already have our Freq info on file, program like the last order"

If that looks like greek and you have no idea what your existing frequencies are then you have the option to send in your radio and we can read it for an additional programming charge...  for example if you have 6 channels we need to read then we will charge you $25 to read your radio, if you have 16 channels then we will charge you $35 to read it.


OPTION 3 (Program your own radios)

You can choose to field program your radios or you can program using your PC computer

For field programming there are no accessories needed. For PC programming you will need programming software and programming cable.  PCS580 is the programming software needed for these radios.  You have the choice between the PC19 programming cable that comes with a 9-pin serial port plug or the PC26 programming cable that comes with a USB port plug.  Make sure to verify what kind of com port your computer has before purchasing the programming cable.
