Hi Guys
Just got a pair of these that work well, now I am aware that the out of the box frequencies should not be used in the uk.
Now I have a programming lead and chirp software and have tried using PMR 446 settings, but when uploaded to radios they will not communicate with each other. If I revert to out of box frequencies they are fine. Obviously I am missing something basic any ideas ?

Hi

Just an update to say baofeng 888s sorted and working legally, many thanks for the input.
Seem to be a good robust entry level little toy.
