Just been to my local tesco and noticed these have been reduced.
What a bargin even if its just for the kids. Ideal for people who go to Center parcs where mobile reception can be a bit iffy!


These black Technika TA-13 walkie-talkies are twin-handled and have a range of up to 2 miles. The walkie-talkies have 8 channels and require 3x AAA batteries.(Not included)

These are showing £14.97 on line but have been reduced in store.

IN STORE ONLY.

looooooooooooooooooool :giggle:

They don't use a network or anything, they only transmit/receive on a radio-band between the two handsets themselves so they will work anywhere.

A few Technika products have gone down in price! Mp3 twin speakers £3.97 - 99p, 1 metre 24 carat gold flat scart cable £5.97 - £1.48! They are all in the same area instore, use the price check scanners to check prices as staff don't allways put the new labels out!! ;) I sould Know!

you may be right, here's what info i could find

The UK uses PMR service.........
Frequency range:446.00625MHz to 446.09375MHz (Europe PMR)

The similar USA service called the family radio service...................
Frequency range:462.5625MHz to 467.7125MHz (USA FRS)

PMR446 is European, and should not to be used in the USA or Canada - over there the frequencies are within the 420-450MHz amateur band. Channel 1 is close enough to the FM calling frequency of 446.0 for any use to be easily detected. Amateurs do not welcome intruders to their spectrum!
Simplex channels 446.0, 446.025, 446.050, 446.075, 446.1 could be affected - a PMR446 channel is always only 6.25kHz away from one of these. In Southern California however, a 20kHz repeater plan has recently been adopted (see http://www.scrrba.org/Announcements/1999/20kHzBandPlan.htm) with repeater outputs on 446.02, 446.04, (446.06 not yet), 446.08, 446.1 etc. PMR446 channel 5 is the least likely to cause problems until 446.06 starts to be used, otherwise channels 3 & 6 are furthest from amateur channels (11.25/8.75kHz).


All a bit geekish, wouldn't stop me from using them though!!!!

I would be keen to know if they would work in America. That way hubby could wander off in the mall and I could communicate with him! We normally have to just meet an hour later at Sbarro (and end up eating pizza too!) :-D

they will work in America no problem but, you would need to check the frequency they operate on is legal to use in the USA
#12
Why do kids need mobile phones. They could use these walkie talkies, it cheaper than network rates ... Not to good for there street credi thou !!

Great find

Can remember a while back reading something about walkie talkies from Britain interfering with there emergency band,think it was people using them at disneyland to keep in touch but not 100% sure.


Apparently.....................

PMR446 which is the frequency band these radios use is European, and not to be used in the USA or Canada - over there the frequencies clash with the 420-450MHz amateur band.

If you do use them however:whistling:
Channels 3 & 6 are furthest from amateur channels.

I have these, got some for my son last year. Would disagree whole heartedly with the idea that they have a 2 mile range - even in open ground (i.e. the new forest) the range for a decent signal was about 1km tops. In a built up area, you're probably better of shouting.

why do people insist on sharing their witty banter when a simple answer to the question would do???:thumbsup:

What dick said America is more than 2 miles away! Amazing!!!!
Of course they will work they work on radio frequency.:w00t:

I bet you're fun at parties.:roll:

Nice find, heat added.
#21
Aberdeen Tesco selling them for original price, went to Tesco only for that and not reduced as expected.
However, bought a reduced scart cable from Technika ;)

Words cannot express what I'm feeling right now......I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I'm sort of hoping this is some form of shrewd thespian humour, long forgotten through time.
#25
i have a set of these which i bought a year back, I paid around £15 i think, they are very good for the money
#26
Me & my mates bought these when we went to V Festival last summer as an easy way to keep in touch if we got seperated.
They worked brilliantly to be fair:thumbsup:
#27
Dont buy technika as you will be returning it a day later

If anyone can post a deal for a sense of humour i think some people will find that really useful.

Bought these last night, excellent for the money, ideal for on holiday etc.

p.s America is definitely more than 2 miles away but still too close for my liking :p

I've had a set of these for about 1 year now. Bought them for £10. They have a blue LED "Torch" on them also. Work a treat at shows or events where you may get separated from your family etc. 1 quick chat into the PMR and you're instantly re-united. As you say a lot better and cheaper than cell phones. Reception is OK, (certainly works a good few hundred yards) but not miles!!! At this price as a "toy" for the kids, which by the way they are far, far better than toys it's a steal. Very useful in lots of work environments - I know a few sparkies / network technicians etc. who have these when on site etc. when tring to buzz out / patch cables.

They run on 3 AAA batteries, not supplied (rechargeables are recommended in my opinion) and will easilly stay powered up all day with medium use on 1 charge.

Went to a firework show and the wife thought I was a right geek, until we got separated. The kids love them!!! A must have at this price.
#31
Check the price they will scan thru at though. My local Tesco (Tower Park, Poole) had the ticket as £12.95 but I scanned one on the self scan thingy and it came up at £3.21! Bargain and def voted hot. I bought 2 packs and at this cheap price you can't complain!
#32
Just been to my Tesco near work (Clowne, Derbyshire) and they didn't have them :-(

I'm going camping in France in the summer and these would be great.

I have a Tesco near home (Sheffield) so might try there tonight...
#33
Got a set of these today. Excellent value for money and from what I've played with them so far pretty good quality! Sound seems nice and crisp... Feel relatively quality (Quite light and "cheap" but almost a "rubbery" feel [Though certainly not rubber!]). Saw some other Technica ones on the shelf that were (At full price) £10 more than the full price of these. Would be interested in knowing if these are also reduced and at what price? My local store does NOT have the scanning machines so I had to take these up to customer service desk for a price... Didn't want to ask about all models for fear of embarrasment :oops: The more expensive ones appear to have a built in battery and recharging base station... Would be great if they were reduced also! Any ideas?
#34
As stated by the techies they do work in America but you can get into trouble if caught using them and it intereferes with the emergency services. We bought a set in America of their frequency ones for about $15 (£7.50ish) which worked great for several years worth of holidays. We also used the US ones here until one got dropped and smashed! So if you're going to Disney or whatever just invest in some US ones too - well worth the money to keep in touch at shopping malls etc :-)

Thought I'll give a try today, went to self-checkout and scanned item. £3.21, so went for it!
Price states £14-ish, but it's not true. ;)
#36
got one this morning, marked up as 12 odd quid on shelf . but checked out at 3.21 cheers good one
#37
well, i tried the Tesco's near home(Sheffield ) last night after my unsuccessful trip at lunchtime yesterday and bagged myself a pair, were marked as £12 odd but ran though the tills at £3.21! well chuffed.
#38
Bought 2 sets today...very good build quality. Perfect for the caravan. :p:-D
#39
Went back today and bought another 3 packs. Fresh stock on the shelf, so they must have a warehous full of them :-D:thumbsup:
suspended#40
