Mobile Phones

Keeping in contact with mobile phones can get expensive - and if you work with different people, you might not always have your colleagues number.

Network coverage can be patchy at the best of times in some rural areas and cannot always be relied on.

With multi-vehicle operations, harvests etc, there really is no substitute for radio communications, mainly because what is said is heard simultaneously by everyone on that channel, making tasks like this a LOT easier.

The mobile phone "handsfree" law affects any vehicle on the public road, including agricultural machines, whereas CB is not affected by this law at all.

You might be able to get away with using mobiles for quick "yes", "no" "meet you in the top field" type snippets of conversation, but one of the best things about CB is that people can chat together, work through problems and discuss what they are doing, and it's this increase in effectiveness, efficiency and more often than not - friendship, that really only CB can offer.

PMR446 Licence Free Walkie-Talkies

The PMR446 units are a relatively new (compared to CB) system, we are building a separate section for our PMR446 information but to give you a general idea...

  • PMR446 works on 446Mhz UHF band, CB works at 27Mhz - they cannot communicate together
  • You cannot connect the PMR units to a larger or exxternal antenna
  • Despite only putting out 0.5w, the PMR446 units actually give slightly more range than Handheld CB's, due to the efficiencies of the aerials at the different frequencies
  • PMR446 units only have 8 channels - there are ways of making them selective to you will only hear people within your group, but nonetheless, 8 channels can get congested in high-use areas
  • You can buy a pair of PMR446 units for half the price of one handheld CB radio, and the PMR's will probably be less than half the size!

We stock quite a number of these units, from occasional domestic use, through to all day every day, if you need these radios, we can offer you a solution...

Licensed PMR Business Radio

If you are a big business, it may be worth investing in licensed business radio... this is not something we supply - there are plenty of large scale business catering for this market sector, and our interest lies in particular with CB and it's newer "brother" PMR446.
