Get a pair of these and keep them stored in a Faraday cage for protection from an EMP attack. When everything else stops working, these 2 way radios will really come in handy.

You forgot to mention that it also doesn't receive airband 118-136mhz which is AM anyway, these only receive in narrow band FM

You can just listen, it is only when you transmit that you should have a licence, a bit like you should not watch live TV broadcasts without a TV licence but people still do it.

Foundation licence exam is 27.50 registration is free if you pass . It is a basic course however if you want to have a full ham radio licence it is far more involved and far more advanced .

Maybe if you travel to America so you are within range. But I don't think this radio covers the American cb radio frequency anyway.

This thread has made me laugh! My two youngest sons have something similar but less complicated looking. We use them in our caravan bec the phone signal is poor. So whilst they are out and about we check in with each other (I have the other walker talkie!). They are also great for any jobs that need doing on a roof and u need to talk to another person indoors no seriously they helped
How would they know you don't have a licence? Not that i want them, just curious

If you caused a nuisance to other radio users, a business for example, they will then report you to ofcom, although it would need to be an on going issue for ofcom to investigate, there not going to travel 200 miles on the chance you are not using your radio that day. It is a bit like TV licencing, they hit areas with a large number of licence evaders, they will not travel to a rural village to try catch just one licence evader as there is a chance they will not be home, they will wait till there are several evaders in that location so they have a chance if at least catching 2 or 3 that day to make it worthwhile.

You also have the fact that ham radio users want to protect there hobby and that is understandable, these low cost radios are going to allow a few disrespectful people to cause a nuisance.

I have one i keep in the car for when im out and about works great on its own antenna or an external antenna battery life is great the receive and transmit are good too.I mainly use mine for 2m vhf and sometimes on 70cm uhf band you need to be a Amateur radio operator to transmit on one.Anyone keen to learn a few practical asignments and carry out a paper exam which you need to pay the rsgb for but its not expensive.rsgb.org/mai…qs/
You can listen to ISS and the local taxi services

This is interesting because normally those radios with such a wide receive band coverage are restricted to transmit on 2M 144-146MHz and 70cm 430-440MHz. An antenna is normally physically optimised for use at one particular frequency and those that are used for general coverage offer very poor gain, particularly on transmit even with fancy ATU electronics.

If anyone is considering becoming a Radio Amateur then I would recommend a dedicated frequency set, or maybe a 2M/70CM dualband one rather than general coverage. A proper one will have duplex tx/rx so you can use your local repeater. For general coverage listening, get a receive only set.

Or get a £10 SDR (adapted DVB stick) from Ebay and some free software off the internet.

For people transmitting off-band or without a license, the local amateur community are pretty keen on shopping you. I've been reported twice even though I am a full license holder, because I choose not to be on the QRZ.com database.

Back to this deal though, hot.

If you mean just to use at theme parks or in a town centre then you will want licence free pmr, something like this maybe, although out of stock again https://h…132

The Baofeng 888s are also good radios to use as walkie talkies but ideally you would reprogram the frequencies to pmr. this is the best price ever on a 4 pack at £36 hotukdeals.com/dea…757

Just so no-one is misled.

Most Baofeng 888s are programmed with preset frequencies that you’re not allowed to use without a licence. There are no frequencies that you’d be allowed to transmit on without some kind of licence (including PMR frequencies due to the 888’s power rating). Here’s what you can do with an 888:

  • Listen to amateur radio UHF frequencies (such as a local repeater)
  • Talk to other amateurs on amateur radio UHF frequencies (once you have passed your amateur radio licence and got a callsign)
  • Communicate with colleagues by getting a Business Radio Licence (Simple UK) from Ofcom (£75 for 5 years at the time of writing)
  • Listening to frequencies that you’re allowed to listen to (apart from amateur radio, there aren’t many you can legally listen to)

Hi, yes there the same and they are good radios just a shame that you will now be paying £17 instead of under £7 hotukdeals.com/dea…132


The other one you listed from gearbest is for only one radio and it is unlikely to arrive by Christmas unless you can find stock in a gearbest EU warehouse. Looks like at the moment the one you linked to at Amazon is the best deal for you to use with your child. The good thing about the floureon radios is the take AA batteries which are higher capacity than AAA. At £16.99 they are still good value.

I voted cold, but only because the general public should not even be aware of these radio. The 2 meters are full of stupid pirates clogging repeaters jus because they bought a £20 radio on 'tinternet.
