PMR446 was initially conceived as a European radio communication service and was introduced in Ireland in 1998, and in the UK from 1999 where it replaced licensed Short-Range Business Radio (SRBR).
Analogue PMR446 is a license-free, voice only hand-portable format offering a simple, economical and effective short-range radio communication capability to professional and leisure users. Unlike mobile phones, with PMR446, there is no waiting for a connection, no working around the uncertainties of GSM coverage and no contract fees or call charges to pay, just instant communications at the push of a button.
For over twenty years, KENWOOD’s ProTalk® PMR446 hand-portable radios have represented the gold standard for quality and durability in professional license-free radios, so you can be sure that whichever model you choose, it will serve you years to come.
ProTalk PMR446 radios implement ECC Decision (15)05 and feature 16-analogue channels as standard along with full compatibility with KENWOOD ProTalk digital dPMR446 models. Every radio in the range is supplied complete with handset, lithium-ion battery, mains charger, belt clip and instruction leaflet for a professional quality communication solution straight out of the box.
