The CP200 Portable Radio is hand-held 2 way radio that is marketed by Motorola. Its design and simple operation makes it ideal for education, hospitality, medical, retail, manufacturing and security organizations. The radio comes with a number of programmable features, including two programmable buttons that can be preset to your two most-used radio channels. The CP200 radio is available in both four-watt UHF and five-watt VHF models and with either four or 16 channels.
Set Buttons to Channels
You can set the “+” and “-” buttons on the side of the radio to immediately access the two channels you use the most. Turn the channel selector to the channel you want and the volume control next to it to the desired volume. Then press and hold down the “+” button on the side of the CP200 until it beeps. This button is now set to that channel and volume. Repeat with the “-” button. You now have two programmed buttons.
Other Options for the Programmable Buttons
As well as programming the two buttons to specific channels and volume, you can program them to scan the radio’s preset channels, to squelch unwanted noise and to delete unwanted channels from those that have been preset. This feature is used when there is unnecessary voice traffic on one of the channels.
All two-way radio purchases require a license and frequency specifications or a two-way radio to copy from when matching to other walkie-talkies.
