Ofcom asked about PMR 446 prosecutions
In a reply to a Freedom of Information request Ofcom acknowledged they have never prosecuted a user of PMR 446

Ofcom were asked:

I was wondering if itspossible to give me figures as to how many prosecutions have been made against person or persons for the specific offence relating to using equipment on the PMR 446 band (446Mhz) against the licencing conditions. I appreciate this is a licence exempt band, but for example can you tell me if anyone has ever been prosecuted for using equipment above the permitted .5 Watts or for using an external antenna.

Ofcom replied:

We are not aware of any prosecutions against any person(s) for specific offence relating to using equipment on the PMR 446 band (446Mhz) against the licencing conditions.

I think this is probably the case for some of the License bands aswell, I feel that OFCOM have too many other things to concentrate on at the moment ?

Ofcom definitely have better things to do.....

This could be a case of a freedom of information request to see if you can get away with a Baofeng at full power.....

...or more likely someone with nothing better to do and bemoaning the PMR DX'ers. Wink
