Re: How do you know if it works!? Trusting old setup...

I had the CRT S mini and it was a really nice rig and easy to use and program the country codes in. If you arent already aware, the EC setting is the uk fm and the EU is the old FCC band also known as CEPT. You have a great rig there.

Re: Baofeng Radios on Ebay

I havent got one myself but i am tempted.Its a shame that we cant have more power and channels on PMR. Lets face it, 0.5w really sucks.I ended up getting rid of mine and they were really nice, Binatone Action 750s but useless in the house.

Re: Baofeng Radios on Ebay

The Baofeng walkie talkies can be re programmed with the 8 PMR 446 channels making it possible for you to get a lot further than the rubbishy PMRs that are on sale at stupid prices. Instead of 0.5w, the Baofeng with 446 programmed in to it will give you 5 watts

Re: PMR446 in the North West.

Since my last post, the Binatone MR200 got thrown in the sink full of soapy water . I have since got 2 Binatone Action 750s, secondhand off ebay for £12.80 including postage. Also they came with a twin charger unit.

Oh happy Days :D

Re: Poll - New AM Calling Channel

maybe come christmas, more people will come on the cb. Where i lived it was channel 19 but im not bothered whether its 14 just as long as the cb gets people on it.Would be nice if the caling channel was nationwide.That way people who are mobile will know exactly what channel to call out on.

Sadly everyone seems to be gone and it looks like ...
