    Walkie Talkies

    Bit random here, but we are going to get some walkie talkies for our pheasant shoot, can anyone reccomend a half decent make and model number to avoid us wasting money on something that is no good.

    All the quarries I have worked in use HYT stuff, it's that good the two I have were the only really usable radios into the butts at Altcar, they have outlasted their listed batteries.

    At the quarry I work we use Motorola but I've bought a set of a Entel for stalking. You can turn all the beeps off which is ideal.

    The cheap and cheerful off eBay are fine for our shoot 30 a pair generally last a fair few yrs we use them at work too every day don't go to the expense of 100s as they get lost and muddy and wet and taken home .

    We use Yaesu VX which are waterproof and can be used for CB and light Ham receptions. Silent earpieces and mike extensions keep things quiet.

    Hi I have tried many of the prm radios available but these chinese radios beat the lot,
    UV-5R BAOFENG Dual Band UHF/VHF Radio dual display

    You can find these on ebay for about 45 for two.

    Although these are classed as Amature radio transceivers they can be programmed on many frequencies both PMR Marine, etc, they are fantastic value for money, Clear reception, extended range, Good Battery life, the only down side is they are a little difficult to program but you can buy software on line to make which makes it easy, i highly recommend these

    Cheers Geoff

    Lidl were selling two way radios a couple of weeks ago under 30 I think, seemed reasonable, toyed with buying a pair.

    you are infact breaking the law if you use one of the UV-5R BAOFENG Dual Band UHF/VHF Radio dual display or any other radio that you program with the PMR frequencies unless the radio is capable of having the transmit power turned down to 500mw of power.

    it is is also illegle to listen to any transmission of any type without permission.
