i think if is over 10 kilometres then its illegal
I got these last year on a Lightening Deal. The quotes range is a bit flattering, but great fun, reliability and no issues in 12 months.

Ah, interesting.

Can others listen in to the conversation or do these have some kind of digital security?

no security, anyone can listen if you have the correct channel.
Got a set of these for snowboarding.... Class buy in all fairness. Batteries last ages and the range was perfect over the slopes and resort.
These are brilliant for talking to the wife around the house without actually having to face each other X)

Hotttt!

There are no distance related regulations I the UK (how would you enforce them anyway). You clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

We once picked up the SportsDirect employees chatter, as we were talking, they were asking who we were and were trying to reaffirm sizes etc?!?!

He's sort of right isn't he?? I thought that personal radios didn't have to be licenced if they are under 0.5W which limits the range. Remember, the ability to enforce a law has never been a key criteria of setting said law.
Anyone remember "push to talk" on mobile phones. Never took off in this country.
how come its illegal over 10km just out of interest?

It isn't, it's just that any over 0.5w need to be licensed
My daughter will love them. Thanks OP!

Rather than simply talking down to someone, why not try and educate?

The UK government allows small, low-powered handheld radios that use a … The UK government allows small, low-powered handheld radios that use a set of eight frequencies in the UHF band (around 446Mhz) to be sold and used without the need for any licencing. They may be used for both business and personal / leisure purposes.Radios that meet this standard (usually called "PMR446" radios) can only have a power output of 0.5 watts, which means that their range is less than the more powerful licensable business walkie-talkies, that have power outputs of 4 to 5 watts.

So, they were actually kind of right, but for the wrong reason. Perhaps next time, try not to be such an ar$e and instead be helpful.
