I think its only 10 channel, and the legal limit is 5 watts.

For more info, go to

I wouldn't buy it. Spend the extra money and get a Uniden or GME.

If that radio is 30 watts then it is not a uhf cb. You will not be able to contact anyone other than thse with the same chanels fitted. If it operates outside of the 477 meg range then you will need to purchase a license and get aproval from the Australian Communications Authority. Then you may not hear anyone on it anyway especially in the outback so it will be useless. It is against the current law to operate within the 477 band with over 5 watts too. If it has been modified to include the cb chanels then you will be able to talk to other uhf operators however it sounds like the type of radio that real estate agents and couriers would use. Philips are also known to be a bit "Deaf" when it comes to distant signals.
