TOP 10 – BEST LONG RANGE WALKIE-TALKIES OF 2024

Licensed or long distance walkie talkies are the best walkie-talkies on the market: unlike licence-free walkie-talkies (PMR446), they allow users to communicate over a private and secure frequency. This frequency is assigned individually by OFCOM, the UK body which regulates telecommunications, as part of an annual or temporary subscription. These two way radios are specifically designed for the most demanding professions: they are more powerful and they have more advanced features than licence-free radios.
