They look nice rigs for the price, pretty full-featured too. I can see the high power mode becoming a thing if/when the Unspeakable Thing date passes. These rigs will have to bear the new UKCA mark to be placed on the market in the UK, in theory. My (very) limited understanding suggests that EN 303 405 (PMR446 spec) would no longer be valid, and our domestic IR2030/34 will have to be updated to define our own PMR446 standard which hasn't been written yet. Obviously none of this matters in the real world though, see who finds the first UKCA spec'd rig!

I have absolutely no need for these, having already a drawer full of handhelds.

That did not stop me from ordering a pair!
£8.99 delivered has to be the bargain of the year! :)

I've changed radios that many times, I've forgotten what I have :think:

I bought a pair of those Floureon walkie-takies Delboy, they work fine. The big companies aren't exactly rushing themselves to bring 16 channel sets out, I only know of the Motorola one, which has decreased in price a bit now.

Yep these Floureon's are just about the only 16 Channel radios available and they work really well.

Some have asked if the HI/LO power actually makes a difference and I can confirm that it does. Did a few tests recently and a receiving station about 5 miles from me noticed a 3 s-point increase when the Floureon was switched to high power.
