Pmr 446 Ch 16 and binatone ch9 447.00625

Postby Southwales » Mon Jan 29, 2018 12:34 pm

Got the 16 now EU legal pmr frequencies in my scanner, picked up some users yesterday using what would be channel 16 @446,19375, and they were using a ctcss code, surprised to hear anyone using these frequencies at the moment as not many manufacturers that I know off have took advantage of the extra 8 channels, I wonder if this Is a cheap Chinese Baofeng or similar and they are using frequencies out of the box.

Also does anyone know how binatone got away with allowing ch9 on 447.00625?

Motorola have had them on sale in 2017 that cover the new 446 freqs.

I have programmed my UV5R to have the new channels and I know that codeplugs for the TYT MD380 compiled by the ham community include dPMR and PMR 1- 16
If they are using ctcss my guess is that they are using out of the box radios and avoiding the kids on channel 1 by turning the knob as far as it goes!
A BF888 set to 16 should be scan mode so I don't think they are using them.

The CH9 on binatone radios were for factory testing, I agree that it is odd that its right outside the permitted area. Thank goodness it's 0.5w (we never exceed that :biggrin: )
