They've been around a while, £10 a radio is about normal pricing to be honest...

First You DO need a licence for these in the UK, and no you cannot set the legally to use the licence free PMR frequencies (too much transmit power). That said the chance of being caught is low, however unless the factory or seller has changed the setting (unlikely) the 16 preset channels are on a mix of frequencies, Some that can be used with a licence, and some that are you can't get a licence for (police / medical and so on). Using them out of the box isn't a great idea and a programming cable will be £5 to £10 (Use the free CHIRP software)


You'll get a mile or so range out of them in most conditions, dense urban environments will give you a lower range, open field will increase the range.

The good think about them is they are pretty good for the money and as they are cheap, if they get damaged its not the end of the world....

I was looking at them yesterday, I'm not confident they will arrive, the sellers that have them for under £5 all have less than 50 feedback and a lot of the feedbacks are broken English so not sure are genuine. Also look at the low value of the previous sales, what could he have sold for $0.07

​I know. for £4.19 it's worth a shot. If they don't arrive, open dispute and get money back.

Why are these illegal, what exactly can you pick up with them?

​You need a radio license to operate them from Ofcom

We used to use the 450 mhz range on shopwatch radios. Totally pants in built up areas even with repeaters.
We are now on the snazzy new tetra type ones.
But theese radios are fun to listen in on folks, and generally cause havoc. Like the good old cb days.
Quite entertaining I thought as some people get really **** and irate for being on "their" channel. At least all the local druggies etc cant listen In now.

You are supposed to have a licence but just like cb radios in the 80s/90s I don't know anyone that had one, also highly unlikely you would ever get caught or prosecuted using them on the pre set frequencies.

Your supposed to have a licence but so long as you don't go on like a hospital porters channel or shopwatch your ok. They are usually hidden away more to stop the basic 16channel type radios like this interfering. If you go to the ofcom website somewhere in there is a list of licences and what frequency they have. Don't go on them and your ok. unless you keep annoying a licenced channel I very much doubt you will get in trouble.

Not quite the same situation is it, if you didn't have a licence on CB radio it was really only a case of Ofcom or the RA as it would of been then losing out on money, you were not causing interference to anyone other than other CB users.

Problem is those that do have a licence specifically use that frequency to get away from the usual walkie talkie frequencies.... construction etc use them, people hijacking the channel can have an effect on comms in critical situations. I've been involved on a crane lift where someone hijacked a licensed frequency and caused danger to the driver, banks man and all those around.

They just look pants..!!!!

16th channel scans the rest.

You need a cable to programme these, do not use them on their defaults, in some areas this will clash with emergency services etc.

​You have to accept this is a risk regardless, you have a backup for failed comms right?

Put all these comments together - and we got us a....Two way conversation.

neighbour sex or even the wife beating up the husband which you always believed to be the boss at home.
Anyway, do we need the over to speak or can we talk at the same time nowdays? If not, can anyone address me to the rigth item?? Thanks
At worse, anything cheap but reliable that will cover 50m distance between 2 different properties in the same street on the same side?

No walkie talkie at this level will allow you to talk and listen at the same time, its either transmit of receive.

Phones and some high end radios do it by switching from transmit and receive in small slices of time, so they are doing one of the other, but do it fast enough that it fools us humans in to thinking we have a real time conversation.

I had a cd radio in the 80's, fantastic piece of kit.
