I really don't want the Baofeng/Yaesu/etc feature set.

I want to program a radio for a set channel, and then have ONLY volume and ptt controls.

Nothing that a user can mess up.

There are many like that. Either lockable controls, or no controls (other than volume/PTT or channel if you like) and programmable via software.

The Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has observed that a growing number of conventional retailers and websites advertise and sell low-cost, two-way VHF/UHF radios that do not comply with the FCCs rules.  Such devices are used primarily for short-distance, two-way voice communications and are frequently imported into the United States.  These radios must be authorized by the FCC prior to being imported, advertised, sold, or operated in the United States.

Whether it is legal or not, I can't say-programing software and cables can be purchased for Hyterra Digital radios.  I was getting poor service from a reputable dealer I won't name, so was looking for a way to tweak the channel assignments on our radios.  Since then the person responsible for said poor service has disappeared from my radar and service has improved greatly-I prefer to use the dealer.

I got Motorola walkies and bought a programming cable and software. I then set 6 channels to what I needed (legal channels).
