Looks like one of Bruce's where's my Landcruiser photos
I have the same unit. My understanding of all these units is that whilst yes you can programme them to the PMR licence free channels they are too powerful to be legal to use, I think the max is 0.5W and most of the Baofeng type units are 3W (don’t quote me on those numbers). Even with a basic foundation license for Ham you are limited to power output.Mate recommends Baofeng UV5R and stresses with data cable and disk so you can set channels on a computer so to remain legal without a licence . About 25 quid all in .
I probably missed half his babble because i can't get excited about this stuff but i like the idea of a handheld with 3 miles range that can live in a drawer at home when not needed .
