Re: FRS in Europe?

Anders, it could be me of course but when I was in England I had a pair of
Motorola Talkabouts and a pair of NTL PMR's as well and I found them very
disappointing. We used them mainly for some serious off road activity where
we often needed to call for recovery assistance. It was more effective to
just shout - LOL! In the end, most people went to ahemmm......"CB"!
