Oh man, i got excited, i thought they had fire tones out. darnitgatekeep said:HT1000's don't have a fire-tone out ... And thats why I told him I'm uncomfortable with programming on PS freq's. Actually even if he went to a radioshop, they wouldn't program that radio on PS freq's, you need to be licensed on a frequency to use it (if its other then a public frequncy).
well on some channels i would like to not be able to transmit, and some i want to be able to transmit (gmrs). Is this possible?rescue161 said:If you can't find anyone closer to you, then I'd be happy to program it for you (RX only).
There is no "legal" issue with it. Providing the radio is programmed for receive only. I had a Motorola HT1000 programmed with police, and fire frequencies for my local county, and even showed it to one of the local sheriff's. It's no different than having a scanner radio.RolnCode3 said:Why is there an issue with rx only programming? It's basically a glorified scanner at that point...what issue is there?
I've been looking at radios and wondering the same questions.
I tried searching, but the results were too vague to figure out if there's good threads with the info in them.
I can program your HT1000 for you, (Recieve Only) for $1 a channel, As long as you can provide me a Ham License (verified thru FCC) or a letter on either Fire or Police Dept Letterhead with a verified name and number of the chief of police or Fire Chief stating that you can have these channels in your radio?? What is the reasons you have to need or use a HT1000?? Are you a volunteer firefighter or Just going to use it as a scanner?? Cause if you want a scanner it is a whole easier to get programming for a scanner then a HT1000. An Honest Radio Techs are a little apprehensionable about programming these freqs in to these radios, Due to some people running around with these radios acting as wannabe police or firefighters. If you are interested let me know with all your info, Name, address, phone, email address, etc.. I will keep this on file in case of any future need. Thanks.landonjensen said:Is there anyone on here that is capable of programming a HT1000 to recieve public safety frequencies as RX only?
If he gives me proof of a GMRS license, I see no problem programming his radio. Now if he wanted TX frequencies on anything other than GMRS, then I'd be very hesitantCommShrek said:You guys are crazy if you're even considering programming something in a radio for Landon. Talk about opening yoruself up for some serious liability.
Encourage the kid to get a scanner at the local Radio Shack, then if he needs to talk to other people, have him pick up a CB there as well.
