Are these any good I just need something cheap and cheerful to use on an air soft/paint balling site tia
Note these are illegal to transmit with unless either all users are Ham Radio licenced and your on HAM allocated frequencies , OR you have a UK simple licence and on those frequencies.

You will almost certainly need a programming cable as well as out of the box they maybe preset to frequencies that are allocated to other services, notable Police and Fire services and Telemetry. You WILL NOT be able to hear Police or Fire services they use digitally encrypted radios, but you could cause interference to them.

A UK simple licence is £75 for 5 years for as many users as you wish, and it no more complicated than filling in a form and sending payment. There is very little excuse why you would not get one if you have a need for Walkie Talkies.
Are you saying to use a walkie talkie on private land I need a license?

Yes, unless your private land is enclosed by a Faraday Cage.

To use THESE particular walkie talkies, yes you need a licence. Buy PMR446 'licence free' and you do not.
I presume it is to make sure that different users do not cause interference to each other.
This is especially important regarding "official" radio users such as police, emergency services, railways, military, air traffic control etc.

A relative bought my children some Walkie Talkies for Xmas some simple 3K range ones age 4+, I live near a police station and I’ve been picking up the police radio’s it’s a little distorted but it’s clearly the police, not good at all. Going to return them

You cannot possibly be picking up UK police comms with them, they use a different system that is encrypted. It'd be like saying you're picking up mobile phone calls with it.

I'm guessing you have the false belief that using a walkie talkie on your private land will not transmit beyond the boundary of your private land. Or to put it another way > YES GET A DAMN LICENCE!
You would need to be a total nutter to buy a licence LOL Stick them on PMR 446 frequencies like everyone else does.

Great little devices configured on PMR446 frequencyBy:Gbalza 2017-11-17 09:57:46
I found these walkie talkies to be great configured (with a separate bought cable) in PMR446 frequencies and with 0.5W power. Although they are programmable and can be set in both VHF and UHF frequencies in non legal and HAM fequencies and and they are out of Mhz range, they can be programmed on EU parameters and with a little common sense, they can be turned into perfectly legal devices to use within Europe as the antenna is not detachable and TX power is not more than 0.5W. Once they are configured this way the parameters cannot be altered in the radio's menu making them 100% safe to use. Price v/ quality is amazing as it is their range and transmission quality. They are perfect for softair use but also for sports where light weight is important. The earpieces that come with them are very comfortable to use as they are made of soft silicone rubber and you don't even feel them. Their small size make them fit anywhere making the best companion you could have on your excursions, skiing trips, MBX rides or softair games!

That does not make them legal to use.

They can transmit at 1w and can be set to use non pmr frequencies.

To be legal on PMR446 the hardwarecannot have the ability to be set to any non PMR446 frequencies or be able to transmit at any power over 0.5w.

No you don'tpmr446 radios (Licence Free Radios)


You are correct you do not need a license to use approved PMR446 radios in the UK. However these radios are not PMR446 type certified so consequently need to have a license to use legally. The fact that they can be set to use PMR446 frequencies does not mean they are classed as type certified .

These are too powerful to be used as PMR446 and also have the ability to transmit and receive on channels that are not permitted under the PMO rules.

Sorry but the question was "Are you saying to use a walkie talkie on private land I need a license?" . You said yes which was wrong.

Get over it.

I would happily use these radios on PMR 446 and recommend them to friends and family.

Thats fine, thats your choice, If someone knows the law and chooses to break it thats down to them, however at least people should know they are breaking the law, as ignorance is no defence in a court.

I have no idea what or who is being transmitted thru then if not the police, as long as it’s not causing them any disturbance for their work I may aswell keep them then.
