I love my four walkie set. For those thinking ablut buying I have four walkies for my kids which we take abroad on holiday to

- theme parks
- shopping centres / markets
- hillwalking

It lets me communicate with the kids if we get split up. I saw a family uses them in Disneyworld and realized what a great idea it was.

My son has a best mate who lives about half a mile from our house. He is desperate for a phone to talk to him on but he is too young. Do you think this walkie talkie set would have enough range?

No chance..... These will most likely work reliably with line of sight only, up to about maybe a few hundred metres at best.

OK thanks. I looked on the specs and they suggested 1-5 km!

1-5km will depend on line of sight and background atmospherics. Don't put your life on it.

Plus won't people be able to listen in on them or even talk to them?

Wouldn't give something that outputs 5W to a child.

Plus they would require an Ofcom license

We did this in Universal & Disney. Oldest two were 15 and took walkies around with them. This was 12 years ago now, Maybe not as "cool" anymore but a great idea.

Is this price for a single or pair?

You can sit the test & get the licence by enquiring here http://rsgb.org/If Amateur radio operators catch you then I suspect your radio will no longer work ever again. DO NOT use them unless you are licenced.


Sounds like some amatuer radio operators want teeth that will no longer work again.

I’m going to buy these and let all the amateur radio operators listen too how good my beautiful singing is

This is the price for one item, for a conversation you need to set a minimum of two pieces. So the price is 25.14, and this is not a deal

It's not just amateur radio operators that might get affected, if these can tune into any frequency from 400 to 470MHz then using them without a licenced frequency could also affect legitimate users such as airports, taxis, shopping centres, security and so on. It might seem all great fun but these used without a legitimate licenced frequency is a major cause of problems for many users. Using in another country could potentially cause you problems too, if caught, of course.

Love the arrogance of people, "I don't care if Windermere has a 10 knot limit, my powerboat does 25 and I'll break the teeth of anyone that stops me." If you choose to ignore the advice from helpful people on here, the amateur radio enthusiasts may be the least of your concerns, the persons knocking on your door may be uniformed.

Couple of things to bear in mind

- the preprogrammed channels, analogue and digital, on these units, aren't the UK license free pmr446/dpmr446 channels
- by default these units output above the 500mw limit for those license free channels
- the stepping options in these units mean they cannot be set to UK license free digital channels

Reprogramming these units to UK frequencies and power outputs is possible but requires a custom cable and custom software and knowledge, it cannot be done with standard micro usb despite the port on the unit

Be nice if someone posted a legal alternative, sadly I wouldn't have a clue. I can see how a device like this would be useful on holiday.

Like money, language, side of the road you drive on etc, when abroad the use of the UHF/radio spectrum is governed by local practice and in many cases law. While there is some commonality in standards and frequencies with some countries, it's not guaranteed.

The legal alternatives you'd like to see simply don't exist in a one fits all scenario, other than buying a fully programmable radio and familiarising yourself with the law local to where you intend to use it, assuming you can use it at all

It is not arrogance. Previous poster said amateur radio users would take tge radio and smash it. That is arrogance.
