There is quite an interesting PMR phenomenon happening around Spain lately. All throughout the province of Valencia and Castellon there are tons of PMR repeaters running with or without ctcss, out in the mountainside, often with 25 watts. It's not legal but it's definitely very welcome by the PMR communities here and nobody has yet to get in trouble for having it.

Do you mean PMR446 or PMR? Are they simplex repeaters?
If so, that's pretty cool. It would be nice if there were some simplex repeaters here in the UK. There was one in London once that I could just about get into, but was quite difficult because the signal was weak and it was fairly far away from me.

PMR446, Sorry and yes they are simplex (parrot) repeaters. I've heard of people doing duplex with PMR 1 and PMR 8, but haven't encountered one yet. and wow, one in london! If only there was some kind of database to classify all the PMR446 repeaters up here! :D
