These frequencies are not present in the document provided by bejoy.

Also I am curious if a .5/1 watt power output would be banned in India. As its power is quite low.
These radios are not legal in India as these frequencies have already been allocated to various police and fire organisations. The WPC website will give you the details. The power output is low but still you can be in an area where the cops etc are close and you could interfere with their sets which is surely not legal.

@Deky,thanks mate for the document. It surely clears up a lot of doubts. Now I need to source the requisite equipment that conforms to the specifications.
CB radios do not require a licence in India. But do not buy a set from the US or elsewhere are you will need one that meets the Indian requirements . Be sure its legal and locally bought for peace of mind and enjoy your CB experience. PM me if you want the details of a supplier etc.

Your best bet is to get a CB radio which is legal to use and can be used anywhere in India without a licence. You can use a handheld one or a car mounted version and the range is pretty substantial for individual use. Drop me a PM and I can give you some contacts to find a radio.
Yes, 35 miles is around 56Kms which is almost the range a FM radio station has. I remember one forum member who had been to Leh using 2 way radio to communicate between the cars in group, guess it was 'Yamaraj' .

Zipperone: Can you please let know models / price available in India. I was also checking the same.

By CB radio, I guess you mean the 27MHz band, right? Those sets tends to get real bulky and have practical difficulties - read lengthy antennas. Could you provide some links to the radios that are available in India.
Thanks,
Bejoy

Hi Zipperone,

If you have more info please share and definitely would like to get the details of supplier etc. Basically if i want to buy couple of them for the offroad team, nothing like it.

Cheers

Lightbulb Re: Walkie-Talkie systems

Walkie-Talkie of different models/makers tend to cancel out each others signals due to a inbuilt setting.

Sometime last year a group of my friends went offroading, and 4 of the WT's were able to talk to each other, but 2 could just hear, couldnt transmit - so we thought. They could transmit, but the other 4 were blocking signals from that 2.

My good friend SukhSharan Sidhu (sidhusaab, to us) shared the details of how to override this setting, and I am sharing it for benefit of all WT users here.

Walkie-Talkie systems-manual.jpg

IEC - Interface Eliminator Code

Basic setting is a non-Zero 0 number. The 2nd line smaller font 1 is the IEC on my model.

Walkie-Talkie systems-1.jpg

Set it to Zero-0

Walkie-Talkie systems-2.jpg

This is my model WT flashing off

Walkie-Talkie systems-3.jpg

............

There you go, now this WT can receive input signals from all makers/models of WT using the same channel.

Hello every one,
A group of us intend to drive from Bangalore to Ladakh and back in 2 SUV's next month. I purchased a Motorola TLKR T80 Extreme (Walkie talkie with 10Km range) from London to use it during our trip so that we can easily communicate and keep in touch.
Now after reading this whole thread I am totally confused.
Do I need a licence for this?
Does any special rules apply in J&K?
Please advice

I checked up the specification. This radio operates on the PMR Frequency (which is 446Mhz - UHF). This frequency is not license free in India. Infact PMR itself does not have any legal validity. The only license free band in India is in 27Mhz which is the CB Radio.

You would not get a license for this radio as WPC does not allow this frequency range to be used for radio communication by civilians. It may have allocated the frequency to some other agency. In J&K generally wireless communication licenses are tough to get. Even Amateur Radio Operators (HAMs) face the same problem.

PS: Don't know if you have already made your Leh trip.
