CLS1110

  • Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410 Supported Frequencies

    CLS1410 In Programming ModeIf you're changing the frequency on your Motorola CLS series radio, you're going to quickly realize that the radio doesn't show you the actual frequency. Instead, it allows you to select a number between 1 and 56 that relates to a frequency. For example, if you need frequency 467.900, you'll want to select frequency number 7.

    To save you from having to dig through the CLS owner's manual, we've listed the frequencies along with their reference number in the chart below. This chart was intended for the Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410, but it also applies to other radios, including the Spirit M, GT, and S-Series. You may also want to view the default frequencies for Motorola CLS series radios.

  • How to Program the Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410 Radios

    When checking the search history for the Buy Two Way Radios web site, it's fairly common to see searches similar to "How to program a CLS radio" or "How to change frequencies on a CLS radio". Well, today I decided to actually check those queries for myself and was surprised to find that we didn't have an article about it! Shame on us, but better late than never I suppose!

    In this article we're going to step through how to program a Motorola CLS1110 and a Motorola CLS1410 two way radio, but first let's quickly cover what "programming" means. Entering "Programming Mode" on the CLS series radios allows you to adjust the following:

    • The frequency assigned to each channel (from a list of 56 available frequencies).
    • The CTCSS/DCS code assigned to each channel. Also called a privacy or interference eliminator code.
    • The selected call tone, or activating the vibrate alert (CLS1410 only).
    • The microphone gain.
    • The channels scanned when scan is activated (CLS1410 only).
    • The number of channels supported (up to 4 - CLS1410 only).

    Each of these features is activated by first placing the radio in "programming mode" and then navigating to the setting in the menu that appears. Since most likely you're only here to find out how to change one of those settings above, I'll provide separate instructions for how to enter programming mode and how to change each setting. Let's get started!


    Placing the CLS Radio in Programming Mode

    • Be sure the radio is OFF.
    • Press and hold the Push to Talk (PTT) button and the MON button.
    • Turn the radio on while continuing to hold PTT and MON.
    • After 3 seconds, you should hear a tone and see a "PROG" icon on the display.

    Changing the Frequency

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • CLS1410 only: Select the channel number that you would like to change the frequency for. Immediately after entering programming mode, the channel number will flash and you can use the plus and minus keys to change it.
    • Press MENU until "FREQ" is displayed and the frequency number above it blinks. ("Frequency" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to select the number of the frequency that you would like. Click here for the list of all CLS series frequencies. Click here for the CLS series default frequencies.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Changing the CTCSS/DCS Code

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • CLS1410 only: Select the channel number that you would like to change the frequency for. Immediately after entering programming mode, the channel number will flash and you can use the plus and minus keys to change it.
    • Press MENU until "CODE" is displayed and the frequency number above it blinks. ("Code" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to select the number of the code that you would like. If you know the specific code that you need, refer page 56 in the manual for a cross reference.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Changing the Number of Available Channels (CLS1410 Only)

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • Press MENU until a blinking channel number appears with "CH" displayed to the right. ("Number of Channels" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to select the number of channels that you would like to be available on the radio. The maximum (and default) number of channels is 4.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Changing the Call Tone or Activating VibraCall

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • Press MENU until a blinking number appears with "CA" displayed to the right. ("Call Tones & Vibrate" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to select call tone 1-3. Call tones can be turned off by selecting "0" (this is the default). CLS1410 users can activate the vibrate alert feature (VibraCall) by selecting call tone 4.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Adjusting the Microphone Gain

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • Press MENU until a blinking number appears with "G" displayed to the right, along with a face profile icon. ("Mic Gain" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to gain levels 1-3. Level 1 is the least sensitive, for loud environments, and level 3 is the most sensitive, for quiet environments. Level 2 is the default.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Editing the Scan List (CLS1410 Only)

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • Press MENU until an icon that looks similar to the letter "Z" appears at the bottom of the screen. ("Scan List" example on the right.)
    • The large blinking character to the left is the channel number, and the character to the right is a "y" or "n" to indicate if the channel is scanned ("y" is yes, "n" is no). Press the plus or minus buttons to select the channel, and the MON button to toggle between "y" or "n".
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.
  • Why the Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410 are popular radios for retail

    Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410 radios for retailEnter the door of a local retailer these days and you are likely to see the staff using two way radios. From small mom-and-pop shops to big box stores, from the front register to the back storeroom, two way radios are used by merchants every working day, and it's easy to understand why. Communication is vital to any business operation, and radios provide instant communications between management and staff for lower cost of ownership and increased ROI. The faster response time improves efficiency, productivity, security and the overall customer experience. A two way radio system is a much more efficient way to communicate than using cell phones, and at a fraction of the cost. When it comes down to the bottom line, choosing two way radios for a retail operation simply makes good business sense.

    Motorola CLS1410Radios are a perfect fit for a retail store, and work very well in such an environment, but there is one model series that overshadows the others and is particularly popular with merchants.

    The next time you visit your favorite retailer, take a close look at the radios worn around the store. It is quite likely the radios they are using were made by Motorola. But they may not be just any Motorola. Chances are, you will find that the clerk behind the counter will be using a Motorola CLS1110 or CLS1410 on-site business radio.

    Motorola CLS Series radios are the de facto favorites among retail merchants and their staff. The CLS1110 and CLS1410 seem to be a sort of standard among both small and large retailers, and for a number of very good reasons.

    They have great range indoors.
    Although quite small, the CLS1110 and CLS1410 provide considerable coverage in retail environments. The CLS radios operate on licensed UHF frequencies, which are good for indoor applications, especially in small retail stores with multiple aisles of obstructions such as shelving and inventory. They are good indoor radios, and are specifically designed for that environment.

    They are small and discreet.
    These are two of the most compact and ergonomic business radios on the market, which makes the Motorola CLS Series perfect for retail use. Employees tend to move around a lot within the confines of a store and such mobility requires them to carry a radio that is extremely compact, light weight and unobtrusive to the customer. Since many shops don't need a lot of range, it makes sense to go with the smallest radio possible. The CLS1110 and CLS1410 fit the bill perfectly.

    They are comfortable to wear.
    Motorola CLS radios are designed for efficiency and comfort. A typical retail operation requires staff to carry or wear their radios for the duration of their shifts. A full-sized handheld business two way radio can be heavy, bulky and cumbersome to carry around for long periods. Not so with the CLS series. Motorola designed these radios for retailers with ergonomic portability in mind. According to reviews, Motorola hit the mark, as merchants and their employees find them comfortable to carry, hold and wear.

    They are easy to configure.
    The CLS1110 and CLS1410 operate on 56 business frequencies. These are preset in the radios, which makes programming a breeze. The radios are front panel programmable, and features can be configured or customized in a few simple steps. The CLS radios can also be easily cloned using the optional multi-unit charger, making the process of configuring a whole fleet of them easier and very fast.

    They are easy to use.
    The CLS1110 and CLS1410 are designed for simplicity, so an employee can instinctively operate them with little to no training. The Large PTT (Push-To-Talk) button is located on the front face of the radio at the top, allowing the operator to quickly and easily find and press it by feel, without having to look. The front panel has only four other buttons and a simple LCD display with icons that are easy to recognize and understand, even for the layperson. The CLS radios are much simpler to use than a cell phone and provide instant communications at the push of one button. The CLS radio also comes with a holster, and is designed to slip in and out of it quickly, securely and with ease.

    They are built for daily use.
    Motorola CLS radios are made to withstand the rigors of daily operation in a typical retail environment. While not impervious to abuse, these units can take a modicum of wear and tear during a long shift under normal working conditions. They meet Military Standards C,D,E,F, and G for shock, dust and vibration. They are also rated IP5X to handle up to a 5 foot drop onto concrete. The CLS1110 and CLS1410 are made to last awhile, and come with a two year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

    There is a huge selection of accessories available for them.
    Although these radios can be used with the built-in microphone and speaker, many retailers prefer to use them with earpieces or headsets for greater privacy and more discreet communications between employees, especially when used on the floor around customers. Fortunately, there is a plethora of OEM and after market accessories available for the CLS1110 and CLS140. Such a wide selection gives the merchant and their employees greater flexibility to communicate, increasing efficiency and productivity in their entire retail operation.

    The Motorola CLS Series radio fits any retail workplace and integrating naturally into the workflow to provide instant continuous communications for on-site retailers, with no monthly fees, no service charges, and no contracts. After all, the faster the better the communications, the more cost-effective, efficient and profitable the operation. Considering all this, it's no wonder the Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410 are a such popular choice for retailers. It's not trendy, it's just good business.

  • Motorola to raise prices on CLS Series radios April 1

    cls-series-radios.pngWe just received word that Motorola plans to increase the price of their CLS Series business radios. As of April 1, 2013, the prices on Motorola CLS radios will go up an additional $20 per unit. The CLS1110, which sold for $139, will be priced at $159 and the CLS1410, which was $159, will retail for $179.

    If you are planning to purchase Motorola CLS radios for your operations or add to an existing fleet, it may be wise to do it by March 31, 2013, before the price increase goes into effect. It may save you some serious cash, especially on large purchases.

    There is another good reason to buy now, before the price increase. Motorola is currently running a Free Radio promotion at Buy Two Way Radios: Buy six radios, get one FREE! For every six radios purchased, you will receive one free radio from Motorola, with a maximum of 10 free radios on a maximum purchase of 60 units!

    Of course, you can still take advantage of the free radio promotion after the price increase; the promotion will continue until June 30, 2013. However, given the fact that the cost of each radio will be $20 more after April 1, the increase will likely negate any additional savings you may receive from the promotion at the current prices. Considering this, a purchase now may be a real bargain in the long run.

    If you have any questions about the price increase or the free radio promotion, please call us at 800-584-1445, e-mail us or enter our live chat at Buy Two Way Radios weekdays from 8 AM to 6 PM ET.
