What is PMR446?

PMR446 describes the licence-exempt, short-range radio service. PMR446 radios offer an effective and low-cost communication solution providing general-purpose radio communications over a range of up to 3km. There is no need for a licence and no previous knowledge or experience of radio equipment is necessary. Most PMR446 radios have only a few buttons and are therefore very easy to use.

Whether you use PMR446 to improve communications for your business or to just keep in touch with your family and friends the benefits are enormous. These include:

• No call charges
• No licence fee
• No age restriction
• Almost no running costs (you only have to recharge the batteries)
• Easy and immediate use
• No need to pass a test
• No airtime contract
• Service may also be used in many other EU countries, without restriction.
