WPG stocking fully functional REPRO Handie Talkies

OPTION 1 ($135): Functioning Radio. Has a built-in 14-channel Family Radio System (FRS) receiver/transmitter with a range about approximately 1 mile (1-2km). Radio controls are accessed by removing the top cover (screwdriver required), batteries (4 AA cells, not included) are accessed through the bottom door. The original rubber-covered Push-to-Talk switch activates the transmitter. Antenna covers unscrews and telescoping antenna extends just like originals.

Yeah, we spoke about getting some of these at Bunker Bash. He comes over to Stoneleigh in January, so we could save on postage there!

Cheers,
Ben.

Agreed mate. I think they will be a good group purchase and should come in handy.

We do have enough in group funds to buy a set now..... But thats the contributions made by people for the pyramid tent. Trowbridge brings another 700 into the pot..

If the main players who put 60 into the tent-pot have a view on this, about purchase or not with funds we have at the moment???

I don't mind if it comes out of group funds, as Ben says if we order and collect at Stoneleigh?

I've emailed WPG- apparently the FRS in the USA, converts to a UK channel that can be used legally over here....PMR446?

Very interesting mate. They may be handy for Amherst?

What the hell, I'm hoping that they don't work! That would be more realistic... Wink

From WPG

Paul,

Sorry, we are not familiar with UK laws. All I can say is that the output of these radios is so small that they are unlikely to cause any problems.

Jerry

Paul, did he say how much postage would be? I know it says $30 on his site but wasn't sure if thats correct. I think it may also be worth checking with him to see if he will bring them to Stoneleigh, as I know he only brings limited stock with him. I'll email him and check.

Cheers,
Chris.

Well to my mind they are not urgent so I don't mind waiting until Stoneleigh. They would be quite a good prop for the group so it's worth consideration even if it is for next season to save $60 and import tax etc.

I agree Murph, not such an urgent purchase really. We might as well wait until January, and see what remains in group funds then...

Cheers,
Ben.

I reckon cutbacks will have to be made in defence spending this year...

Just took delivery of my BC611-s from What price glory. Apart from phillips screws, they are exact scale copies of my original. They take four AA batteries and by accessing the top you can switch on a small modern handi talkie fitted insideand choose a channel. Seem to work okay in the garden to house. Very crackly, but you can hear whats being said. One may have to go back as it has a tendency to switch off when too close to the other unit, basically when feedback gets too loud!

Postage was super quick, just over 24 hours from UAE and no customs duty. Overall, pretty pleased, think they are worth having. We can have a play at Trowbridge

That's great service indeed; shame Jerry's customer service (i.e. answering emails) stinks though...
