From where to purchase Wireless Device (Walkie Talkie)

[quote=“uzair82, post:20, topic:21307”]

Thanks everyone for your interest and suggessions especially @yousuf465 and @Shamsheer e Kashmir.

Actually we are bunch of bikers who like to travel and explore the country on motorbikes. We need this walkie talkie to communicate during our tours. It would double the fun and very much necessary as well. So it won't be a stationary device we'll use it during our tours. So i need it to be 100% legal so we won't get in a trouble by any police man. Its pretty much common in India many biker groups use it. I know there is difference between Indian laws and ours. I don't think that toy walkie talkie gonna work. I guess we need a professional brand that is durable as well

This amature licence thingi is pretty interesting does it apply on the setup i am looking for? If it does should i get this permit before i order for the device? The shipment approximately takes 30 to 45 days to arrive.

One thing is clear we don't want to run into trouble by doing something that is illegal but if there is a Legal way to get walky talkies we'll surely adopt it.

Waiting for more details and suggesstions from you guys.

Ahan this is interesting. Have you tried it yourself? Does it transmit your voice as well? all i have heard that it trasmit music only? 2ndly does it work 2 way aswell? like you listen by other device aswell when transmitting?

This walkie talkie is really a good solution to keep in touch with other person within 2 mile , what i really like is one button press talk, and long battery hours...

there was a Nokia app for that, if my memory serves me right.

Another option is Firechat but that is more of off-grid whatsapp. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.opengarden.firechat&referrer=utm_source%3Dopengarden.com%26utm_medium%3Dweb%26utm_campaign%3Dbutton

Technically you can use 144 MHz band for this purpose. Walkie Talkies are easily available.

Ham licencing is basically for static operation in Pakistan. I have no idea whether mobile licences are granted by PTA for the purpose you have spelled out. I guess you can pay PTA a visit for this purpose or write to them.

Cost will be a concern for you. Second hand sets are not likely to be less than 10-15 K per piece.

All in all I think you should abandon the idea of using walkie talkies as the licencing and other things are pretty tedious. Mobile phones can be used in Pakistan as there is almost 100% coverage by one service provider or another. That is the workable option in your case.

Finally there is another possible solution. Non-GSM phones have an option where these can be used as walkie talkies. If you can lay your hands on a couple you might be able to use them in your biking expedition.

Thanks a lot for detailed response. I am going to contact PTA about it and will share their reply about it.
