Roger that.
Also OP, you posted these a week ago - do you really need to post them again because they are 19p cheaper?

They are legal for Amateur Radio use in the UK. It's a great hobby & the exam is easy. If you want to know more then you can find out at the RSGB rsgb.org

Track your position? Don't be silly

They can't. Well kinda. It's very difficult to trace that's why police. Army and security use them

It's very difficult to trace. Unless you do a Terrorist threat with these then they wouldn't bother trying

I can't see security services using these, for one obvious thing they aren't encrypted

Whenever you transmit you are broadcasting your direction within your transmit range, Tracking a radio signal is relatively simple using RDF techniques (Known as homing in), it's basically the same process they use to track stolen vehicles that are fitted with "Tracker" which also gives off a radio signal.

Indeed police channels in the UK are encrypted but the police also stick to UK legal frequencies, the fact that there are non UK legal frequencies means the only people who use these frequencies are those breaking the law, as there are less of them they are easier to spot as the rest of the frequency is relitively clean.
Anyone know if you can use these to listen to ATC at local airports ?
Of course radio transmissions can be tracked but if you're briefly transmitting then there's much less chance of someone catching your transmission and being able triangulate it but it certainly can be done, just watch any World War 2 film with Nazi direction finding vans looking for spies. - you'd have to probably transmit and cause an interference that gets logged with OFCOM who then might send out an engineer to investigate. These people exist and do go out and about to track interference sources.

Really these radios are a pain in the arse when people buy and use them that aren't licenced or know what they're doing, the easy chance of interfering with legitimate users is of real concern for those that use radio in a professional and mission critical environment like an airport, security and such like.

No, airport VHF traffic including ATC is 118MHz to 135Mhz if I recall (give or take a Megahertz) and it's also AM which is harder to tune in correctly on non AM VHF equipment / scanner which are usually FM receivers
