Business Licensed (PBR)

Business Licensed (PBR)


Professional business radios (PBR) are radio communication systems that incorporate one of or a mixture of hand portables, mobiles and base stations. The primary benefit of using PBR is the ability to cover larger sites over secure channels.

What are the costs?

A licence is required to operate a professional business radio. There are three main types of licence. For an exclusive channel or if you are using a repeater / base station then you will need a technically assigned. The cost of this type of licence is set by OFCOM, but is typically an annual cost of £75-£200 per channel required. The other two types are not exclusive to you but that doesn't necessarily mean that you will hear other users on your channels. With some creative programming and multiple channel options you are unlikely to get any interference.

There are no hidden charges, no monthly contracts, just simple annual payments.

How do I get a licence?

We will apply for your licence for you at no extra charge! Simply put the item in the basket when you buy your radios. Please see this page to buy now.

What’s the range?

The range of any radio is an impossible figure to quote. The range is highly dependant on the terrain and conditions. What we can say is that with an unlicensed radio, you have 0.5w of power output; with a licensed radio you have 4-5w of power output, plus the facility to introduce base stations to enhance the range. On the whole, most single sites can be covered using radio. If you are considering covering multiple sites or large areas, please drop us an email to arrange a site visit to establish your needs.

Am I restricted to one site?

No. There is a type of licence with this specifically in mind. If you wish to travel around the country with your radios you will need a UK General licence. OFCOM have a range of frequencies dedicated to the UK as a whole. Due to this there is a small risk that you may not be the only ones on your frequency at any given time.
