1 GENERAL INFORMATION
1.1
Introduction
This manual contains information about field programming through the front keypad of the
RELM Wireless RM Series Mobile radios. This manual is intended for use by experienced
technicians familiar with similar types of commercial grade communications equipment. It
contains service information and data for the equipment.
The following precautions are recommended for personal safety:
• DO NOT transmit until all RF connectors are secure and properly terminated.
• SHUT OFF and DO NOT operate this equipment near electrical blasting caps or in an
explosive atmosphere.
• Only qualified technicians should maintain this equipment.
1.2
Description
The RM series radios are self-contained FM Radios covering the frequency range of 136MHz to
174MHz for VHF and 430 MHz to 512 MHz for UHF. The radios are multi-channel and digitally
synthesized using a single TCXO for frequency control. The RM series incorporate an
EEPROM for the storage of channel frequency, CTCSS Tone, DCS Code, Two-Tone, and Dual
Tone Multiple Frequency/Automatic Numeric Identifier (DTMF/ANI) encode information. Flash
Memory is used to conveniently store and upgrade the operating system. Soft key switches can
be programmed to control back light, Scan Add/Del, channel scan, DTMF store and send,
repeater talk-around, hi/low transmit power as well as other useful operating functions. Status
and channel information is displayed over a liquid crystal display. Connectors are provided at
the rear of the unit for an external antenna, microphone, speaker, and other optional
accessories.
1.3
Accessories
A wide variety of optional accessories are available for the RM Series radios. Contact your
RELM Wireless dealer for complete information.
1.4
License Requirements
This equipment must be licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) before it
may be used. Your RELM Wireless dealer can assist you in filing the appropriate application for
the FCC, and will program each radio with your authorized frequencies and signaling codes.

2 FIELD (KEYPAD) PROGRAMMING
2.1
Programming
You can program the RM series in two different ways.
A. Using the unit’s keypad. See section 2.1.1.
B. With a computer, RESRM programming software, and a PCRM programming
interface cable. Contact RELM Communications for the software and cable. See
section 2.1.2.
2.1.1 Front Panel Programming
Using the unit’s keypad, soft keys, and control knobs, the unit can be placed into one of two
different programming modes. It is important to note that only RELM authorized dealers with
qualified technicians are allowed to operate the RM series radios in the programming
mode and to change any programming content. Figure 2.1 shows the different programming
modes.

Dealer Mode – Global Settings
To place the unit into the “Dealer Mode” for editing the global settings, do the following:
1. Switch the unit “off”.
2. While pressing and holding the [C] key, switch the power “on”. The radio enters the
dealer mode and “COMMON” appears on the display.
3. Press the [A] key to enter the global menu.

4. While in the global menu, press the [A] key scroll forward through the menu items or
press the [B] key to scroll backwards through the menu items.
Table 2.2 shows the global settings that can be selected while in this mode. While in this mode,
use the [▲] and [▼] keys to view the options for the global setting. To save the setting, press
[A] or [B] before exiting Dealer Mode. When finished programming, cycle the power of the unit
to exit “dealer” mode and start “user” mode.
