PMR446 is a European standard licence-free radio
service utilising 8 12.5khz spaced channels in the
446mhz band.
Due to the considerable uptake of the service,
PMR446 radio sets can now be bought a pair. The
Radio Agency requires that radios have a maximum
of 500mw (1/2 watt) ERP (Effective Radiated Power)
to an internal antenna. This limites range to,
realistically 1/2 to 1 mile around town and up to 2
miles in open country. In line of sight conditions and
at altitude ranges of over a hundred miles have
been obtained.
CTSS (continuous tone squelch system) is
incorporated in most radio sets as a means to prevent
interference with only 8 channels available - the
radio ignores all incoming signals except those that
are also transmitting this sub-audible tone.
There are eight 12.5 kHz simplex frequencies which
can be used anywhere in the United Kingdom. The
frequencies have been harmonised (but not
necessarily authorised) for use across Europe. The
channels centre frequencies are as follows:
1. 446.00625 MHz
2. 446.01875 MHz
3. 446.03125 MHz
4. 446.04375 MHz
5. 446.05625 MHz
6. 446.06875 MHz
7. 446.08125 MHz
8. 446.09375 MHz
The frequencies are shared and users may, under
local heavy use conditions, experience interference
and problems with sharing channels. These may be
reduced by changing frequency and/or CTCSS tone
and/or DCS code. PMR 446 is not suitable for safety
of life use or for users who need to have access to
frequencies at particular locations and times.
As a licence exempt service, PMR 446 is unprotected
and the Agency will not become involved in
interference or channel sharing disputes between
Before speaking you should check that a frequency
is free by either listening or using the channel busy
indicator. When you speak you should identify
yourself and the person you are calling. The radios
allow communication in only one direction at a time
so you will find it helpful to identify when you have
finished speaking. It is expected that the frequencies
will become particularly busy in cities or where large
numbers of people gather such as large sporting
events. All users will benefit if messages are kept
