License-Free PMR446 Radios
Kenwood ProTalk and UBZ Series Hand Portable Two Way Radios
PMR446 was initially conceived as a European radio communication service and was first introduced in Eire in 1998. In the UK, PMR446 was operational from 1999 where it successively replaced the licensed Short-Range Business Radio (SRBR) format.
Analogue PMR446 is a license-free, voice only communication system which provides a simple, economical and effective short range radio service for professional and leisure users. Unlike mobile phones, with PMR446, there is no waiting for a connection, no working around the uncertainties of GSM coverage and no contract fees or call charges to pay.
Following ECC Decision (15)05, new PMR446 frequencies are being introduced across Europe from 2016 to ensure the continued availability of license-free analogue and digital PMR446 frequency bands, increase capacity and reduce congestion.
- Analogue PMR446 frequency band will be extended to cover 446.0-446.2 MHz.
- Digital PMR446 frequencies (from 1st January 2018) will also be extended to cover 446.0-446.2 MHz.
