You should probably check with your local law enforcement agency. These are not CBs. It might be stolen from a public safety agency. How much did you pay for it?

Chances are it's programmed for a public safety agency or a ham radio operator. It's possible it could be for a private business. Either way, it could be illegal you to talk on your new toy.

Basically you bought something that is going to be useless to you. Did it even come with the battery charger? You also need to know if it's for VHF or UHF things like that. as I said it useless for you at least.

Until you learn more simply use it as a paperweight or desk decoration. You might find a use for it eventually, especially if you get an Amateur Radio license. Your going to have to do research and learn more about radios. As long as it's not stolen property you might even sell it to someone who can use it.
