To program frequency information into a radio, the radio must be brought into a service shop and attached to a computer that runs a Radio Service Program. Some customers would like to have two or more separate and distinct areas in which the radio can operate without either area being easily accessed by the other parties. In order to accom- plish this, the radio must be brought to a central programming area to be re-programmed before it can be moved from one distinct area to another. This causes down-time for the radio users, constant shipping and radio tracking problems, and program- ming costs.
