Cheers, might purchase....

alot of customisation on this model. bought it at £36.09 from amazon direct. now considering the baofeng series because this does not do lower frequencies. ...decisions decisions

Which of the Baofeng are you looking at?

I've had a quick look and the Baofeng BF-888S seem to be a comparable price and offer better performance. I've had a quick look and for delivery either tuesday or wednesday one radio can be had for £14.99 and a radio with a USB cable required if you want to program them can be had for £19.99 also delivered tuesday or wednesday according to ebay.

I bought the Action 950s a few years back. Excellent if similar.

Would this be any good in central london?

I got the 950s, but the baofeng look good

Do they really cover 5 miles range ?

Are these any good for road trips where you have a number of cars and would require a decent range.

I assume they are unlicensed - what are the implications of using unlicensed radios ?

Seems like these are licensed for Europe:

Hands up if you ever said 10.4 for a copy back in the 80s.

Over.

These would be useless for built up areas and the claim of 5 miles would be for a wide open space with no obstructions.

the baofeng is a ham radio which is different to this... also it looks like it requires a licence to operate. so not sure. the most popular baofeng seems to be the uv-5r...thats the one I was looking at.

and u are right in built up areas it struggles....I went to my local tesco (0.3 miles) and it was breaking up...I could still hear the person but it was quite blurry and broke up abit
