Just wondering if you have recently bought one of these network radios can you give me a small insight as to what radio you use and why you went for the radio ? Thinking of getting one but dont know what to choose ..cheers for any input.

I just bought one of the Senhaix N60s which are also the one sold by Anysecu - and I fitted it in my van, and I'm really pleased because it's got a big display. I bought a 500Mb a month/12 month SIM for about 16 quid, and that's it. I'm using Network Radios groups - on Zello and it works brilliantly - and there are so many groups you can join, or just listen to it's damn handy. I'm a bit of a new convert, but it seems to do exactly what people say it does.

Here you go. This is the Senhaix version. In truth I don't know if mine is this or the Anysecu as there isn't any writing on them!

You don't even need to pay that much.

Sort by lowest price and you can get 500mb data and 500 odd minutes on a 1 month rolling contract for as little as 3.99 a month.

Oops, begging your pardon, it was late and I'd had a beer or two Image

On another note.... If it has bluetooth could you use internet connection sharing on your phone? Like my satnav gets live traffic info?

:roll:
Is it me??? 3.99 x 12 works out at nearly £48... The OP+1 has a 12 month deal "around £16" with 500Mb for 12months (500Mb/12months).

Thanks anyway

I think ID mobile are quite cheap in UK and often do deals.

Keep your eyes open for deals though, I managed to grab a deal where I pay £5 and get 250mins, 5000 txts and 2.25gb of data per month. That's on a 30 day contract and any unused data rolls over into the next month. Thats pretty good going i thought. :thumbup:

I'll stop there, as we're drifting off topic, but as the 'radio' in question is actually a mobile phone with a posh jacket on then it's understandable.

As for my thoughts on Network Radios, in this respect I don't think we can really call it a radio to be fair.... At least, not in the traditional point-to-point sense anyways

If someone tells you that you need/must have a callsign to use this service then you are well within your rights to give them plenty of kick back as that's simply elitist bullsh*t. I can't stand that attitude.

A tango Mike group would be welcomed by those amongst us who are interested in this corner of the hobby and I am sure that it would be an inclusive place where anyone (Ham or otherwise) could join in and chat.
