Custom Two-Way Radio Programming for your TERA TR-500 – we’ll program any frequencies and radio settings that you send to us, for a reasonable flat fee.
Includes programming of your submitted details for your new or existing TERA TR-500 radio(s).
How Does This Work?
Add one or more (TR-500-S) Stock version radio to your Cart and edit the total quantity desired.
Add this (BSR-PRG500) custom programming item for each specific programming set you want. This covers the actual radio programming for the first radio of each programming set your Cart. – For example, if you are ordering 4 TR-500s and you want 2 sets, each set with its own programming, you would add 2 (BSR-PRG500) custom programming items to cover the programming for the first radio in each set of radios.
Add any optional (BSR-CLN) radio cloning items desired. – For example, if you’re buying 4 TR-500s and you want 2 sets, each set with its own programming, as in the step 2 example above, you would add the 2 (BSR-PRG500) items as in step 2 example above, then add the (BSR-CLN) item with a quantity of 2, which would cover the cloning of the 2nd radio in each of the 2 sets. This saves you $10 on each cloned radio!
You can also mail us your existing radios for programming (or re-programming). Include your order # and name in your package and send to the address on our contact page. Please insure your package for replacement cost, as we are not responsible for any damage or loss of your equipment. Return shipping of your programmed/cloned radio(s) will be billed and must be paid prior to retuning your equipment.
You can send us a spreadsheet, text document or email with your own custom channel chart, or start with one of our existing or customer-submitted programming charts or templates, then optionally customize it to suit your own needs before emailing to us, which we can then build on, as needed. This item assumes that you will provide all programming details to us, including all channel data and any changes to the default settings listed in our TR-500-CUST Programming Options document.
You can download and use this TR-505-CUST Programming Template (same layout as the TR-505) to build your own programming document. This is a ZIP file of an Excel doc in .XLSX format.
We can guide you through the process with just a little help, or if you’re not sure what you need or how to gather your programming information, we can do everything for you with our BSR-PCON Custom Programming Consulting service!
Note: While this service does include “unlocking” radios prior to programming, only frequencies that are within the usable “unlocked” operating range of a given radio can be programmed. We will let you know if there are any problems with anything in your programming document or email before committing the programming to your radio(s). We will not perform programming that we suspect may be for deliberate criminal intent.
IMPORTANT: Some custom programming options for our radios are meant for communications during emergency or “SHTF” (S#it Hits The Fan) situations. You are solely responsible for operating this device in compliance with FCC licensing and regulations, regardless of any custom programming we perform for you. We are not responsible for any harm caused by the use or misuse of these devices. Let us know if you have any questions before purchasing.
