Here’s the thing. You have a number of PMR446 licence-free radios and a number of licensed radios. You want them to work together and your local radio dealer has told you that it’s impossible.

That’s not strictly true. You could program your¬†licensed radios to work on PMR446. But if you do, you risk a ¬£10,000 fine and up to a year in prison. So don’t do that.

The Solution

The good news is there is a viable technical alternative to risking prison time. And it’s by using the SR-628 cross-band repeater control box by Surecom. Introducing the Surecom SR628. See this diagram.

How It Works

You connect Surecom SR628 allows you to connect a radio to either side creating a 2-way duplex repeater. When you talk on the PMR446 radio, this will be rebroadcast on the Licensed radio, and vice-versa. You need to use one of the radios from each system, but this solution allows you to talk between the two sets of radios legally.
