I recently bought a uhf radio and I'm trying to find the best way to tell my chief I want to program the radio to our channels. I'm 17, I have first responder certification and CRP. My chief told me awhile back that he wouldn't mind me getting a pager. If I hear a call, I can go on it. I go on ALL the calls when I'm at the station. It's a volunteer fire deptment. We don't have any spare radios around. Do y'all think it's a good idea to ask?
