Hi learned forum , 
The County-comms GP7 , looks like a rather good unit , from a prepper point of you it looks very useful , covers many bands , appears farily easy to use and affordable, does anyone use this unit in the UK ? Is it any good ? Do we need a license ? Can anyone offer any advice or info ? 
Thanks in advance

Sorry can't help much but you don't need a license for that it's just a receive radio.

You don't need a licence to receive radio transmissions, (excluding the continued saga of 'BBC' television programming), so long as they are for general reception such as public broadcast or hobby activities such as CB, Ham radio, weather satellite etc. The only offence described under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006 in the UK is 'radio interception' or receiving transmissions that weren't designated for you such as emergency services, private communications, etc. but there are also caveats such as receiving 'pirate' radio transmissions. 

https://www.ofcom.org.uk/spectrum/interference-enforcement/spectrum-offences/radio-interception


How would anyone know you were receiving such communications? They wouldn't unless of course you divulge such information to third parties which is covered in the 'disclosure' section of the legalities. 


I can't give a personal opinion of the radio you mention but it does look just like the many types of receiver available on the market today. There appear to be many 'reviews' on the internet of this particular model so perhaps the best place to start if requiring more information.

I'm afraid that I have no interest in 'prepping' personally as regards utilising technology for a SHTF event so cannot offer any input. I just hope that we never suffer such an event in the UK to put such interests into practice especially after witnessing the events of panic buying during the pandemic or the farce of a UK nationwide power cut.

Other opinions can and may vary.


I hope that the legalities aspect given is of help although it should be noted that I am not a practitioner of the law and is only given in good faith.


Respectfully,
Victor
