The Motorola HT1250 two-way radio is capable of handling up to 128 separate channels for communication. The radio is usually pre-programmed from the dealer with a set of local channels, but you may not want to use the original options. If you want to set your own options, it only takes a few minutes to program the Motorola HT1250 by removing unwanted channels or adding others.


Deleting Channels

Step 1

Turn the volume knob at the top of the HT1250 clockwise to power it on. Press the "Menu" button on the front of the radio.
