Hi Greg,

If it's not a UHF 'walkie-talkie' or handheld device with equal to or less than 500mW (0.5 Watt) RF output with a fixed or non-removable antenna then it needs a licence. (PMR446 regulations.)

Pretty much simple as that really. 

See Ofcom for further details but be warned you'd have to fair old wade your way through a lot of documentation. (Probably why so many 'Chinese-Whisper' info to each other.)

Of course there'll be those that profess 'knowledge' about everyone using them, not to worry about it, no one's gonna get caught, etc. etc. Up to you in the end really without a leg to stand on if you are ever caught.

Usual disclaimer applies as in I am not a qualified legal expert, offering no legal advice whatsoever, only assisting with where you can find out further information for yourself.

When searching Ofcom for answers look for "PMR446" and "IR2030 Licence Exempt Short Range Devices or SRD's.)

Manufacturers and suppliers are supposed to provide relevant information for the country they are sold in and their regulations.....some do, others don't.

So up to you in the end.


I'll await the hordes exclaiming quite the opposite but seeing the lacklustre state of the forum recently I won't hold my breath. (Although it might make a few peer from under their rocks. Very Happy )

They are great radios for cheap VHF/UHF Amateur Radio use on appropriate licenced frequencies but dual band versions are just as cheap and of course there's a lot better stuff out there for Amateur use.

Not much help was I Greg? 
(Let's just say PMR can be a lot of fun if there's like minded individuals in radio range. Wink )


All the best,
Victor

Hi Victor

Thank you very much for taking time to help and all the great info!
Been into cbs on and off and scanners since I was about 11 always dabbled on and off but been getting back into it again more seriously (40) last month
PMR was something I’ve been curious about recently, will look into dual band etc to, I liked the idea of the space u as not very expensive if ends up sitting in a drawer lol
Thanks again
All the best
Greg

No worries there Greg. CRT space U/ space V 1f44d 

All this radio malarkey is a lot of fun though isn't it! Smile

I've had my fair share dabble with most things radio over the decades (flipping old git) although the big push "8@8" (channel 8 PMR Sundays @ 8pm) didn't herald me much in the way of results down my neck of the woods. Saying that our Ray does hold a good regular PMR net down on the south coast :-

https://charlietangodxgroup.forumotion.com/t56p350-south-coast-pmr-net-report

Not that you'll be firing down to there from your QTH! Wink

In the end I finally succumbed and got my Ham ticket but have to admit that I'm having a lot of fun with it all. Even the beginning 'Foundation' level gives you some exciting frequencies and modes at your disposal with a recent increase in power to 25 Watts, supervisory responsibilities and free licence to muck about with the innards of radios as well as constructing them. (Amongst other things like remote access etc.)

If you really have the radio bug and want an expanded range to play with at almost anytime of the day it's definitely the way to go. I can turn on my radios at any time and be assured of some radio action.

Have fun there Greg.

73,
Victor

The simple answer regarding the Space-U is more or less yes, you need a licence. Even using them on PMR 446 is illegal due to the fact of the higher power & that it doesn't have a fixed antenna. 
The Space-U is really an amateur radio rig, built for the 70cm amateur band primarily, and the Space-V is a single band radio for the 2m amateur band.
