MINNESOTA BUSINESS AND EDUCATION FAQs
How do we purchase radios?

Depending on the radio system most can be delivered in a few days.
What if I need radio service?
Advanced Radio has an in-house repair depot with quick turnaround times.
How long will a portable radio battery last?
The daily talk time also varies depending on use, but it should be able to get 8 hours of talk time. The average battery life span will last two to three years.
What are channels used for?
Channels are used to send the actual communications. Each channel in an analog radio is tied to a particular frequency. You can assign a different channel to separate workgroups within your organization. This way each workgroup can have their own channel to reduce disruptions to other departments.
How far can our hand held radios communicate?
The distance a hand-held radio can communicate depends on several factors. The most important factors for you to consider are band (VHF or UHF), wattage, antenna type, and environment.
How many radios can be used together?
There is no limit to the number of radios that can be used.
Will Advanced Wireless Communications radios work with other brands of radios?
Yes, provided the other radios are programmed to the same frequency and codes. Please contact AWC for assistance.
What is a FCC License?
The airwaves are limited resources that need to be shared. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) assigns frequencies to prevent too many people from using the same channels at the same time. An FCC license grants your organization permission to operate on specific frequencies, within a particular radio band, using a specific type of radio signal emission. Advanced Wireless Communications can process the FCC license application for you.
Is a FCC License required?
Yes, FCC licenses are required for most business radio frequencies. The biggest advantage of licensing your frequencies is exclusivity. Using common or default frequencies often means dealing with interference from others nearby who are using the same frequencies. Contact AWC at (800) 475-5852 for FCC licensing.
