Pretty slick! Half of the conversation really did sound like someone in a train. Just curious, I looked up that model number and saw

xmits 144-148Mhz & receives 136-174 Mhz.

Q1) License to operate?
Q2) You can receive 136-144 and 148-174 without any chance of messing up and interfering?

Thanks,
Rob

No license to turn it on, license is needed to transmit for the type approved 144-148mhz

Receiving shouldn't interfere...getting a license is easy for talking on the ham bands :p

They're good little radios, you may encounter a spur from a paging txmitter with a hot front end and decent antenna
