    Be cautious when bringing in any radio equipment from overseas.
    It won't be using the NZ radio spectrum frequencies and is actually prohibited for use here and is an offence to do so.
    The overseas frequencies can interfere with some important NZ systems.

    This law applys to some widely used dog tracking gear bought into NZ as well, but I would be surprised to see any prosecutions for the use of.
    IMO it is about time that the authorities got their arse into gear and sorted out available frequencies for public use so that people dont have to risk being criminilised just to take part in their chosen sport/past time.
    In fact a recent event showed that the "illegal" dog tracking devices can be very usefull in lost party situations, although the usefullness was discovered too late for the lost party in question unfortunately.

    Yeah, your right in a lot of ways there Pengy.

    The regs refer to anything that uses a radio frequency not on the NZ spectrum, the dog trackers have just been on the top of the list there due to their popularity.

    I don't know of anyone that's been prosecuted though, so the chances are realistically pretty remote.
    I have heard of quite a bit of radio and tracking equipment being confiscated by custom though over this issue.
    Just something to be aware of when ordering stuff from overseas.

    I see the rhino is on special at h&f. Are they any good as a radio? I thought it might be weak, as it seems to be an add on

    Yet to put it to the test , I've got unidens as well , we used when chasing pigs and where very consistent on letting us down . I'm hoping rino is better you can choose the power out put from 1/2 a watt to 5 and a whole lota other things that I will never understand . The little I've used it , it's nice and clear . Only brought it as I need gps and was Cheeper than 62 s at the moment . I am surprised that they arnt very popular .

    Just resurrecting this thread 4 years later !
    Is there a more recent one on this topic ?

    What's the state of play now ?

    I'm looking for something that can do dual duty hunting and around town in earthquake / power outtage.
    For use in the bush and valleys is VHF a real option or not ?
    I'd sort of prefer something I could chuck spare AAA batteries in and use them for torch too - is this feasible ?

    Lots of questions, I know. Comments on any would be appreciated.
