Corrected :

note : the name is rSubscription not rMonthly
function test() {
   var rM = document.getElementById('rMonthly');
   rM.checked = true;
}

<a href="javascript:test();">test</a>
<input id="rMonthly" type="radio" name="rSubscription" value="Monthly" /><b>Monthly</b>

Thanks leakim971

But what if I have multiple radio buttons such as:
<input id="rMonthly" type="radio" name="rSubscription" value="Monthly" /><b>Monthly</b>
<input id="rBiAnnual" type="radio" name="rSubscription" value="BiAnnual" /><b>BiAnnual</b>

I want to select the rMonthly radio button. Your suggestion mentions that it should be the name is rSubscription not rMonthly. Well, there are now 2 rSubscription names so that won't work right?

no, I use the ID instead the name. ID must be unique in a page. It's your case so no problem.

input id="rMonthly" t
input id="rBiAnnual"

function test() {
   var rM = document.getElementById('rMonthly');
   rM.checked = true;
}
