These radios can be programmed via the keypad. However, this option must be enabled through the software, and must have a component removed from the circuit board. If you have a radio that will not go into self-programming mode when you use the proper key combination (light button+dial button while turning the radio on), your radio has not been enabled for this option. The programming instructions can be found here
