Bike to Bike Radio Frequencies
Just to build on this, my partner and I already have Autocoms and a couple of cheap PMR446 hand-helds which worked fine during a tour of Europe last year - although they eat batteries and can't be bike-powered...
So we're looking for some replacements that can be... and I got chatting to the guy from Alan (aka Midland) at the NEC show and he said that the PMR446 frequencies are only legal in 'some' European countries (most of the EU) but not elsewhere.... and as our next trip is to Eastern Europe (incl Poland) as a precursor to a longer RTW trip in 2008, we've been thrown into turmoil!!
He said we'd be better off with CB radios (see the Midland 42).
Anyone here an expert on radio licencing for general public use worldwide?
Our RTW trip includes East Europe down to Turkey, India/Nepal, Far East, Australia/NZ, South & Central America, US and Canada... (can't wait!!)
