  • (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2014 - CB radios have been a worldwide phenomenon for decades. This technology has become increasingly popular in the Indian market since the Government of Indian de-licensed the usage of the corresponding 27MHz frequency in 2005/2006. In India many people refer to these types of radios as license-free walkie talkies.

    The initial uptake of the license free radios was driven by motorsport and adventure trip enthusiasts for vehicle-vehicle communication. These types of trips entail convoys of vehicles traversing remote and rugged terrains for weeks or even months at a time. Since these areas tend to have poor mobile phone coverage drivers need an alternative communication solution for their safety and security. The license-free walkie talkie provides the perfect solution as it provides peer-peer multi-user connection and will function even in the remotest of areas. Further the walkie talkies provide a group communication facility that allows all the drivers in range to communicate freely with each other.

    Such radios are typically vehicle mounted which is another significant advantage. The walkie talkie is powered by the 12V battery of the vehicle which allows usage without the concern of the device power level; this is very important in remote areas where electricity connections are scarce. A vehicle unit comes with two main components, a radio and an antenna.

    The radio is installed inside the vehicle allowing the control of the various features and comes with a push-to-talk microphone. The antenna is connected via a cable to the radio and is generally mounted on the roof of the vehicle for optimum communication. Today there are thousands of enthusiasts from clubs all over India like the Extreme Offroaders, Gerrari Offroaders who are using these license-free walkie solutions during their trips. The popular models in this segment are the President Taylor III ASC, JFK II ASC with the ML145 antenna. Additional information about the technology can be found on
