This is how to talk on a radio or walkie talkie for business or group use.


  1. First, decide who your dispatcher or secretary is. The dispatcher is the person who sends out the calls to a person for what ever event. Label or Nick-Name this person BASE. This Will come in handy later.
  2. Give all the users a radio and a Nick-Name. By Nick-Name, do not label people Momma-bear or Papa-Bear. Remember, you are trying to sound Professional.
  3. When you want to call BASE, you simply say "[your nick-name] to BASE." Example: "Packaging Dept. to BASE."
  4. When your nick-name is being called, you say : "Go Ahead".
  5. The Calling person says or asks what they want to say/ask.
  6. After the conversation is done, the person who called the other person has the option to say and ONLY SAY: "Clear" The other person can repeat this ONLY once.
  7. To call someone other than BASE, just say something like this: [Packaging Dept to Josh] - Josh will then say ["Go Ahead'].
  8. Go Ahead simply means "I'm ready to hear what you want to say".


  1. BASE: Base to Josh
  2. JOSH: Go Ahead
  3. BASE: I need you to come to the front desk to sign a package that just arrived.
  4. JOSH: OK
  5. BASE: Clear
  6. JOSH: Clear (optional)


  • Smile when you talk. A person can always tell your attitude, even when they can't see you.


  • Speak Clearly. The other person you are trying to talk with may be in an area with a lot of noise or your radio may be picking up background noise while you are talking.
  • Don't Cuss. It's Not Professional
  • Do Not have extremely long conversations. Someone could trying to get a hold of BASE because of their injury while you blab on about what sounds good for dinner.
  • Don't keep repeating the same words over and over again.
  • On 22-channel (dual-service) radios, channels 1 through 7 and 15 through 22 are GMRS channels. In the United States, the use of these higher-power channels require a GMRS license that can be purchased from the FCC for a fee. Transmitting without a license may result in penalties if the FCC enforces this rule. In Canada, GMRS channels can be used freely without a license. For more information on GMRS licensing, see
