Licence Free Two Way Radios
Instant and efficient two way radio communication - no licences, no contracts, no call charges!
Licence free two way radios (often known as walkie talkies) provide a cost effective alternative to the more powerful analogue and digital radios that require the purchase of an Ofcom licence.
Operating on the shared PMR446 (Private Mobile Radio, 446 MHz) licence free frequency band, these radios are available from a wide range of manufacturers from the most basic consumer licence free radios, to professional grade business licence free radios.
It should be noted that whilst some radios specify ranges of up to around 8 kilometres, in reality, these low powered radios are likely to perform at differing ranges. This is due to the many variables in operating conditions such as terrain, geography, line of sight, buildings, building materials and such like. Therefore the maximum may be achieved on high ground or open countryside with line of sight whereas in a city range could be as little as several hundred metres.
Licence free radios are ideal for wide range of applications such as:
- Hotels and Hospitality
- Leisure Centres
- Activity Centres
- Karting Tracks
- Compact Construction Sites
Our range of licence free radios are mainly professional grade models, designed and built by industry leading manufacturers to perform in the most demanding of environments.
A major consideration for business use should be privacy and interference. The PMR446 frequency band is shared and can suffer from interference from other users nearby. However, as the radios have the ability to switch to a different channel this may not be an issue for many users.
