#facepalm at people openly admitting to illegally using Baofengs w/o a license in Amazon reviews. Ok ignorance is a thing but it's not helped by some self identified M0's there wrongly claiming that they are ok to use on PMR.
@rev_mook the ones that baffle me are the licensed hams that use them on PMR. They are easy to spot when they come in strong from 30 miles away, and they are always slightly off frequency due to tuning limitations of the Baofeng. These people use their call signs while knowingly breaking the law and it would likely be a quick job to revoke their license if anyone at OFCOM cared enough.
@M0TDN Using amateur call signs on PMR is pretty dumb, but it sounds like these guys know that channel = some frequency. Maybe they just make up callsigns?
