    They are identical in specifications to all other licence free "walkie talkies"

    the licence for manufacturer states the frequencies it uses, maximum power output, and the fact it cannot have any other aerial than the one supplied with it

    Therefore apart from the type of batteries it uses, the range is identical to any other licence free walkie talkie, no matter if it cost £10 a pair or £200 a pair.

    The "box" says it has an 8KM range. Are they worth getting?
    karenhornby
    the 8KM range advertised on most walkie talkie boxes is laughable.
    you MAY get that range standing on the top of a very high hill in the middle of a desert, but in a normal town/village probably about half a mile is average.

    They have both digital and analogue CTSSC/DSC encryption I think - does this make any difference to the quality/build of these units?
    karenhornby
    neither of those is encryption
    its just a means to enable one walkie talkie to call a specific other one.
    It means you cant hear anything until your called by a friend using the same ctcss or dcs/dcs tones
    However anyone can isten in to anything you say

    the range as said earlier is exactly the same as any other no matter if you pay £10 for 2 or £200 each
