Big events - built up and busy urban areas then yes - but UK gen is still popular in the regions. They're all in my van radio, and very underused around here. Clearly for big events where coordination is essential for safety reasons things are different - but in Norfolk and Suffolk, there is little channel congestion - and therefore I reject your assertion
'no decent event who values their safety would use uk gen, as every man and his dog are on it'.

and 'no radio hire company who values their clients would use uk gen'.


You really cannot make sweeping statements like this, assuming that your experience can be applied everywhere. Local conditions, known to the contractors gives much more flexibility. The High Band and UHF Light frequencies are not busy at all. The short range and our area make these channels still viable.
