FGA (Frequently Given Advice)

A Repeater ID is given for a complete system on a building or mountain with a Radio transceiver, duplexer and gain antenna and decent power. Duplex Hotspots are not repeaters.

Do not put your Hotspots on Satellite frequencies (435,000 to 438,000) (145,800 to 146,000)

We do not issue talk groups.

If you need to change your personal data, please log into your account. Only CALLSIGN and GIVEN NAME cannot be changed / omitted.

I've updated my name, callsign, or QTH and my radios are still display my old information?
radioID.net maintains NONE of these systems, only the database.
It is up to these individual systems to pull updates and update their equipment / devices. This is beyond our control.

Screenshots, "Reference Copy", QRZ are not sufficient and will not be accepted.

To report a silent key, please submit a ticket with a URL link to the obituary.

You can reuse your IDs for radios that are not on the air at the same time. A mobile and base radio can have the same ID.
If you only use a mobile in the car and a portable and home, you can use the same ID.
Most people will only need 1 ID, they are not an infinite resource, please do not ask for multiple ID's unless you have a valid technical requirement.

Hotspots: **** MMDVM, DV4MINI, openSPOT, DVMEGA, and all other hotspot type devices do NOT require a separate ID, use an existing ID only, check the hotspot tab on your account dashboard, do NOT request an ID for them ****
If you own more than one hotspot, use your personal ID number and add a two(2) digit suffix, example: Radio ID 3020111, use 302011101, 302011102, etc.
NEVER operate multiple hotspots within range of each other on the same frequency even with different ID's. This will create serious network issues in most cases.
Hotspots do not require repeater ID's.
