A channel selection method for frequency simplex radios operating in direct mode, whereby the radio channel to be used for the communications is determined from the radio's current location with respect to a trunked radio system base site. The objective of the channel selection strategy is that a direct mode radio will choose a Direct Mode chan nel in the Trunked mobile receive band when the DM radio is in close proximity to the trunked radio system base site, and choose a Direct Mode channel in the base station receive band when the DM radio is some distance from the base site.
