I have heard a lot of arguments about this with some voices saying "it must be uk type approved" but I think in the end it is ok and actually you are legally ok using them.

Of course you need to be using the frequency you are licenced to and no more than the power limit. And pmr 446mhz at 5 watts is also a no as the limit is 500mw (a half watt)

The issue with 446 is that being licence free Ofcom does not give a damn provided it does not interfere with it's paying customers. Plus of course a large chunk of the 446 users are in no position to complain given the equipment & power they use..But then two wrongs do not make a right..However, I am very reliably informed :wink: :wink: that it is possible to work Europe wide during lift conditions on 446 using fairly low power on SSB & to also work very reasonable distances on SSB at any time using no more than 50 watts.

These look and work very much like the BaoFeng BF-888S handsets which you can get on ebay for £16

We will not be wasting any more money on these radios as for 16 quid you get a full range model that does the same and performs the same

They are both essentially cheap asian radios to the core but they are not the same units and the Mitex are slightly better IMO. The Mitex are 5 watt but the Baofeng you mentioned is only 3 watt and the mitex are better build quality and more durable

I must say this is a very informative post and very detailed with the images of each MITEX radio and also very handy to have the frequency line up for each one.

I just wanted to point out that these MITEX radios are actually just rebranded SFE S820 Radios. The MITEX is not the make but just a brand sticker on the actual SFE S820 Radios. There has been a bit of a row about this recently which you can read of in this post viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2992

Good advice in this thread... have to say I saw some in maplins on offer the other week and was tempted... they were still expensive compared to the ebay equivalent... they look smaller in the flesh then I thought they would be from pictures I had seen on the net.

Does anybody have a full list of tones for the Site & HD radios?
They seem to be missing in the list above.

Cheers.

The MITEX GENERAL red radios are the biggest selling units and aimed at general use in all kinds of environments. 5 Watt TX Power. (Simple UK Light Licence required, application form included in box)



My local Sainsbury's probably use these, they use channels 9, 10 and 11 going by this list. My local Wilkinsons use 13, 14 and 15. In Runcorn the Wilkinsons there uses channel 1, which I've heard a few other people use.
