New Zealand to crackdown on illegal hand-held transceivers.

Another Southgate ARC story.

New Zealand's RSM Compliance team are working on a Prohibition Notice to limit the import and illegal use of a range of low end two way radios.

There are a variety of these radios on the market, like Baofeng, Pofung and Woxun for example. They allow users to programme their own frequency from the front panel or via a USB cable.

Although designed for the Amateur Radio Operator, these radios in the wrong hands have been attributed to malicious calls on police, forestry and rail frequencies.
The import of Amateur two way radios locked to the Amateur bands won’t be affected by this new Notice.
