Prohibiting illegal use of two way radios
The RSM Compliance team are working on a Prohibition Notice to limit the import and illegal use of a range of low end two way radios.
There are a variety of these radios on the market, like Baofeng, Pofung and Woxun for example. They allow users to programme their own frequency from the front panel or via a USB cable. Although designed for the Amateur Radio Operator, these radios in the wrong hands have been attributed to malicious calls on police, forestry and rail frequencies.
