Hi Guys,

Maybe Kiwi Ray might be able to answer this one or any one that knows. How do I go about making 3 handheld UHF's work in NZ. I imagine that they wouldn't use the same channel frequencies as here in Oz.

I'm over there in May traveling in a convoy of 3 and it would definitely cheaper and easier than using mobiles.

Also what's the price of diesel and unleaded at the moment, two years ago when I was last there it was 0.89 and 1.30 respectively?

now Johno, do you think that if you took your handhelds to Antarctica they would work ok? So why do you think that they won't work in NZ?. Rus.

I don't know, it must be all of those sheep I guess. No really, I didn't know that's why I asked, so they will work?

The UHF radios will work no problem anywhere. As previously stated the UHF frequencies that are used in NZ sold units are the same as the OZ sold units but the 27MHz CB are the ones more commonly in use by 4WD's and truckies.

Just got back from NZ last week and from memory petrol is nearly $1.70 per litre and diesel mid $1.20's plus Road User Charges which are now $170 for 5,000km for a 3 ton vehicle - ouch, ouch, ouch - not to mention the expensive prices of nearly everything when you go to the supermarket when compareed with OZ.

Technically they will work anywhere in the world, but who knows what radio critical radio services you will be interfering with - only Australia and NZ use these frequencies for CB.

If you use UHF CB's in countries other than Australia or NZ you face confiscation of the radios and a severe fine for unlicenced use of unauthorised radio equipment - or even being suspected terrorists !.
