We’ve added a new TERA Handheld Radio Accessories category to our shop and have added our first accessory product, the TERA USB Programming Cable, for use with the TERA TR-500, TR-505 and TR-590 Emergency Two-Way Radios.
The cable is priced about $2 below the dealer price and doesn’t require any special drivers (although we provide them just in case). The programming software for these 3 radios (also free to download) work on Windows 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista, and also Mac OS X running Parallels with any of the Windows OS mentioned.
This cable is a must-have if you intend to customize or change your TERA radio channels and settings, but we’re also happy to do so, and our radios each come with several custom programing options to make them usable right out of the box. Even so, it doesn’t hurt to have the cable around for future tweaks like adding a GMRS repeater offset, changing the PL on your emergency MURS channel, or setting a different NOAA NWS All Hazards Weather Channel that the stock frequency.
Better Safe Than Sorry!
Introducing the new BetterSafeRadio site!
A new venture spearheaded by license Amateur Radio operator Mark Lindsey (K6LED), aims to serve peppers, families, Neighborhood Watch & CERT groups, and organizations with the latest information about emergency two-way radio communications, with the mantras: “hope for the best, prepare for the worst” and “Better Safe Than Sorry!”
These words of wisdom have been borne out time and time again through history, and with a growing threat from man-made and natural disasters, it’s really just a matter of time before one might be faced with a serious or even life-threatening emergency. BetterSafeRadio will show readers just what they need in terms of portable GMRS, MURS, FRS, CB & Ham/Amateur radio gear, how to best utilize the different radio bands available, and how to program and operate emergency radios.
We’re still busy rolling out EmComm (emergency communications) info, two-way radio gear & accessories, and will be adding new features and signature BSR ReadySetGo™ kits over time. Please check out our first hot deal on the TERA TR-505 GMRS/MURS/WX Dual-Band VHF/UHF Two-Way Radio and come back and visit again soon!
