Radio Technology, Inc.'s Narrowbanding Service

Our new Narrowbanding service takes your Motorola Two Way Radio or Motorola Mobile Radio and performs the physical and technical modifications required to meet the new UHF/VHF frequency requirements of the FCC.

For a flat fee based on your radio model and modifications required, Radio Technology, Inc. will make hardware modifications to models that require physical changes, and for all models will complete the reprogramming needed to meet the January 1, 2013 deadline. In addition, we also offer FCC licensing services, to assist you with the renewal or modifications of your existing license, which can be completed at the same time as your Narrowbanding service.

FCC Licensing Service

If you currently have a two way radio or portable radio, you may have already experienced the paperwork and hassle that FCC licensing can require. If you are new to the process, it may seem overwhelming or intimidating to deal with the forms, paperwork and technical information required to apply for a new license.

But with the help of Radio Technology, Inc. your process can become much simpler. Our experienced staff is trained and understands the requirements, paperwork and paths to licensing, and we are here to help:

  • New license applications
  • Modifications of your existing license(s)
  • License renewal

Working closely with a licensed frequency coordinator on current FCC licensing requirements, we will assist you with new applications, renewals, relocations, and modifications as well as help you prepare for the future.

In addition, once you've used our FCC Licensing Service, we will help keep you aware of any new FCC licensing changes that could affect your business communications. We will be there for you on the job today, and down the road.

You do not need to be overwhelmed by FCC rules and regulations. Radio Technology, Inc. can help to keep your FCC licenses in order. Contact us today for more information, or to sign up for FCC Licensing Service.
