Prices, details of service and how to identify your product price group.
Licence free consumer walkie talkies are those that generally come as a pair in a single box, they may or may not come with a charger and rechargeable batteries. Some will need dry cells to power them. I have priced as a pair as it is best if both are sent in, this allows for the working radio to be aligned. The antenna cannot be removed.
PMR licence free 446 radios usually come as a single radio per box with a charger and rechargeable battery. The purchase price will normally be between about £65 and £185 per radio. The antenna cannot be removed.
Licensed PMR radios have detachable antennas as do most digital radios, apart from those that are licence free 446 types. Of course you require an Ofcom radio licence in order to use these radios in the UK, as with other Countries.
Limited keypad with display, the keypad will have a limited amount of buttons, normally excluding numbers. (Licensed radios)
The full keypad radio will include the characters 0 – 9 and perhaps the * and #. (Licensed radios)
CB radios - self explanatory

The prices for radios are for electronic repairs only. (Radios 1 - 5 above) If a new housing is required, we will contact you and quote prior to fitting. Fixed Price Repair excludes antenna, battery, metal chassis and charging equipment. Some radios may not be repairable due to liquid ingress, software/hardware issues and PC board damage. I follow a no fix, no fee policy, so if your radio is not repairable by me you will only have to pay the return shipping fee to get the equipment back.
