Got VHF license but don't know what where/what to buy radio?

Post by NMAD » 12 Jan 2016 20:33

Hi Guys

Does anyone know someone who can help me with buying a new VHF radio in Cape Town area?

I just got the license from SA4x4 community but I am clueless on what VHF radio will cover the club frequencies :think: , I would like to get a hand held one.

Thanks.

Ons klub (soos meeste ander klubs) het gestandardiseer op VHF radios. Gaan loer op www.orra.co.za vir meer inligting, asook geregistreerde installeerders in jou omgewing...

Same goes for you - have a look at ORRA's website for dealers, etc!
