A trunking radio is a lot more complicated and secure than conventional radios. You'd have to first acquire permission with the radio system manager to get a radio ID authorized on the Palmetto P25 system. I would not buy a radio until you get permission (in writing) saying so. After that you have to make sure you buy a radio that supports the radio system you want to use it on. Palmetto P25 is a APCO 25 9600 baud system so make sure your radio supports that. Once you get your radio you'll have to talk to whoever runs your department and have them program your radio. Only people with a system key can program your radio and system keys are only issued to people trained and trusted to program radios.I work as a paramedic in the Anderson area if I were to buy a p25 radio is it just program and go?
