You still buying these? You must be an expert now!

These show as a 2W power output radio & unless they have 500mw as as well they will require an amateur radio licence in the UK

Have to add p&p to listing (+£2.11)

You also need two of them/a friend to talk to?

Yeah these operate on UHF band 1 and 2 and require a license.

POWYSWALES hasn't got any friends!

Soon going to have a knock on the door if he uses illegal stuff though.

Oh come on, like you're actually going to get caught and fined for using one without a license. Most use-cases for these are road trips and festivals.

Range any good?

As someone has pointed out, this radio exceeds the 500mW limit of PMR 446 licence free radios and way, way exceeds the band limits set by OFCOM. It also covers the Amateur Radio bands and therefore, you'll need an Amateur Radio Transmitting licence. To get this, you'll need to do some studying and then take a test. As SixtyFive pointed out, should you get caught transmitting with this radio, it will be confiscated and you would be liable to prosecution.

If you wish to transmit legally, simply buy one of the many cheap licence free PMR 446 radios, which are aviailable. They don't have the range of the Baofeng, however, will be more than adequite for road trips and festivals...

The police and CPS have better things to do than enforce the law in this area. In the county where I live it would be easy to find tens of Baofeng users at a time simply by showing up to local paintball and airsoft arenas where people use them as a real life alternative to Discord, Teamspeak or Ventrillo (not sure what's popular these days).

The the reason why radios such as Baofengs aren't allowed in peoples hands without a licence can clearly be seen here. The consequences of this idiots action could have been catastrophic...

You seem to be confused. I'm not arguing with you regarding the law, I'm simply stating that there is next to zero chance of you getting actually caught and fined. I'm also not stating that any one should do this either.

There are people who will misuse many things in this world. However that's not a reason to punish those that won't and as such the police could turn a blind eye if you're not behaving like a fool, the CPS could choose not to prosecute if it's not worth the hassle and if it's ever taken to court you could get let off with a slap on the wrist because of the ridiculousness of the whole thing. If you happen to know the last amateur radio enthusiast prosecuted for not having a license that would be useful information.

Oh, I see, so you wish to pick and choose the laws which should be obeyed?

Let me see if I have this right?

Say you're caught using a Baofeng radio Illegally without a licence, you want the Police to turn a blind eye. And say you're woken up to find a burglar in your house helping himself to your AV system and driving off with it in your new car, you want him prosecuted...Right?

Do yourself a favour, quit while you're behind...

Was only pointing out the legality, getting caught is another story.

Some of the band's used by this are designated by ofcom for business use and you can obtain a 5 year business license for £75.

The problem is more that businesses or individuals are paying license fees to operate on these frequencies.

Ofcom have the power to enforce and prosecute unlicensed use.

Like you said though chances of getting caught are slim, some people like to be aware of and operate within the law.

Yeah, because that's exactly the same as using a radio without a license.

I bet you're really popular at parties...

What ilegal stuff am I using?, I think you need to keep in mind that this is a public forum and accussing me of ilegal activity on a public forum with no evidence is more of an offence than using one of these radios.

"...if he uses...". It's your conscience and arguably on your conscience if you encourage others too.

As people are saying to transmit with these you need either a PMR radio licence or a Ham radio licence and Ofcom monitor the frequencies for illegal TX ! OK you go to one of your festivals and if you transmit on a paid for PMR frequency or a ham band they WILL report you to Ofcom or you could be in direct contact with the police. The RSGB also monitor the ham bands as these cheap rigs are flooding the market, there are even radio hams that that take bearings on the TX and play games at tracking you down ! why not just buy a legal transceiver ! (fully qualified radio ham)

Hope u guys like it~

Probably best to program them to operate outside the amateur band (430.00-440.00MHz). Most amateurs jealously guard their spectrum allocation and take these things seriously. Also, some of this band is used by amateurs to monitor extremely low power signals (satellite, even moonbounce) so having someone without a callsign yakking about paintball is going to ruffle feathers.

I think you know I said nothing of the sort but just in case you really have misunderstood I'll just point out that it was your mistake and not mine. I'll do myself a favour and not waste any more time on you but that's not because I'm 'behind'; it's because you have some sort of problem.

Don't bother with contacting them for a deal. They host the deal sitewide which gives anybody a chance to snap it up and then when you contact them again to say it's happened they say it's not their fault that you couldn't order it in time. Customer Service at it's best!
