Are there any limitations on the use of PMR446 equipment?

Yes.

  • The equipment must not be used on other frequencies than those reserved for that equipment and
  • the power is limited to 500 mW (the 5 W equipment that can be found on the Internet is forbidden: the mere possession is even punishable).
Actual use of the equipment is free. The users are invited to choose an available frequency before starting their communications.
