    Baofeng radio

    Anyone have a Baofeng sitting around not being used? I need one with FM capability. Have $60 to spend. Was going to order one from Ali express, but run out of time to have it delivered.
    Cheers

    Just a quick question.
    Do you need any kind of licence or permit to use these types of radios?
    Are there any frequencies you should steer clear of eg police, SAR?

    Free bump. @McNotty, have you at any time had problems getting these through customs please, given the info that @Boar Freak linked to last year?

    Iíve bought in a few with no issues thus far. I think itís a no-brainer that at some point, somebody will annoy other users, and our benevolent dictatorship of a government will respond in some way to ensure the good citizens of NZ are Ďsafeí.

    Never had any issues bringing them in, but I'm pretty sure they are banned now. Obviously if you start programming them in to forestry, SAR, HAM repeaters etc. you're asking for trouble. Stick to the PRS 01-40 channels and it'll be fine.
    A guy got prosecuted last year, he was pulled up for a traffic incident and had one of these programmed for police channel.
    We just use them for Simplex comms for hunting, 4wd etc. A lot cheaper than the options available here. To use them legally you will need an amateur radio licence.

    the baofengs (unless things have recently changed) were too wide in bandwidth dp they "spilled over" into adjacent channels.
