I’ve recently purchased a Walkie-Talkie Two Way Radio model SMAT AT-329 similar to baofeng. My primary purpose for this is to be able to communicate with group during hikes as well as contact emergency frequencies if needed during mountaineering activities.
I suspect this piece to need some kind of licensing. I’ve had a hard time finding information on licensing requirement. How to get licensed? Which frequencies are free to use such as FRS in the US? Do we still need licensing if only using free frequencies?
Any info would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks.
