Walkie Talkies Recommendation
As you guys and gals would know, we are a club that has a little bit more convoy than the others... :P So in order to increase the safety aspect of the convoys. We encourage everyone who has the means to go get a walkie talkie.
The following are what we recommend and how you can get it.
Price is about RMB 290 - RMB 350 depending on accessories
You can basically get this WT send to your hotel and pay the delivery guy via the TaoBao website, which is like the china version of E-Bay.
In Hong Kong
You can find this at any electronic shops
Bringing in Issues
You should have no problem bringing in the WT as we have brought in quite a few sets on our own via Changi Airport
Usage of the walkies in Singapore without IDA approval is not allowed in Singapore but the IDA isn't enforcing this rule very strictly and we can get away most of the time. Even had experience whereby one of our car came into the custom and was found with the WT and had to report to IDA for "self disposal" of the WT.
However, in Malaysia using a WT openly is "illegal" and you will be subjected to fine, confiscation and "coffee money" so it's wise to be discreet be it in Sg or My.
We are using the public channel of 443.000 mostly for our convoys.
Also, if anyone is going China, perhaps you can help the club to get some more walkies too?
I have a friend dealing in walkie talkies. Can prob get a good deal if purchase in bulk. Btw I've tested them on the golf course so I reckon range of 2-3 km should be not a prob.
hi artloh, do u think u can get an indicative quote from ur friend? many thx
No news from Artloh yet? Was curious about the pricing he can get for the PX-777s, the club definitely need a few more walkies and some more accessories like ear piece.
err he prob cant log in?? as u noe the forum has been kinda wonky lately
The RMB price you mentioned below is for 1pc or 1 pair?

Sorry, just saw the post. You can call my friend Kelvin 96375188 for the walkie talkies. I used a pair during my recent trip to KL. the range is good for 1+km. Better than the Motorola ones I used to use.
