Hey guys, I just recently became a member of my towns volunteer fire dept. I am looking into personally buying a handheld mobile radio since our funds for communication equipment is low. What radio would you guys recommend? Does it need to be VHF or UHF? Also, if I do buy one, how does it get programmed to our fire frequency? Is that done at the factory? Thanks in advance!
(As you can tell I don't know a lot about the technical aspects of radios)
