You can not "key in" on the Bf888 they have to be set by software via a cable and you will only be able to hear UHF signals.
You will have to download a program to set them (found online free eg. CHIRP)

If you have a licence then it could be configured to be used on that licence, the same as other radios can be.

There are several different business user licences available ranging from £75 for 5 years up to just under £10,000.
Simple UK light can be used by not just businesses but also "Incorporated Groups" that is a group of individuals who share a common interest & costs £75 for five years. You must apply directly to Ofcom for these licences & only after being approved will you be asked to pay the fee.

The very low price of these means they are falling into all kinds of hands, for example..

Shoplifters now on 462.625 Nottingham city....!

A while back I also heard 450.225 being used, it was private security but at first I mistaked them for Police as 450.225 was in the Police band, that thread here..

Police or Security using 450.225 MHz now

These frequencies are becoming popular like 446 and Simple Light so worth having in any scanner. :thumbup:
