5-Digit Talk groups

As of May 2020 5 Digit Talk groups are no longer being labeled/issued in the USA due to the limited number of talk groups available. See options below which are available to use.

Use Your 7-Digit Radio ID

Users may use their RadioID.net issued radio ID as a talk group. Please only use your registered ID and don't pick one that you think is empty. (If your group has a club call you may also register for a 7-digit ID and use that as a talk group).

Steps to begin using your ID as a Talk Group:

    1.
    Program your radio by adding the 7-Digit Radio ID as a Group Call using the CPS Program.
    2.
    Label it as you see fit in the CPS as this will show on your radio Display.
    3.
    Provide the 7-Digit to others to program into their respective radios.
    4.
    Finally key up and test it out.

Use Your Repeater 6-Digit Radio ID

Repeater Owners may use their 6-Digit Radio ID which is used for the repeater ID as a talk group. Please only use your registered 6-digit Repeater ID and don't pick one that you think is empty. You are able to use the 6-digit ID for both the ID for the repeater and as a talk group.

Steps to begin using your ID as a Talk Group:

    1.
    Program your radio by adding the 6-Digit Radio ID as a Group Call using the CPS Program.
    2.
    Label it as you see fit in the CPS as this will show on your radio Display.
