Two Way Radio FCC Licensing
Motorola CLS Series and RDX Series business radios utilize licensed, shared frequencies. It is the user's obligation to license their radios properly so as to minimize interference with other business radio users. DTR Series and RMM Series do not require licensing.
The FCC typically grants a user license to use a particular frequency in a given area — essentially a site license that covers all radios in service. You do not need to license each radio individually. Occasionally, frequency coordination is required by a local coordinator, which can add additional costs.
Please use the FCC's Universal Licensing System (ULS) to apply for licenses. The ULS can accessed here:
