Title: The legal limit on 2m
Post by: hs0zfe on August 24, 2008, 05:32:57 PM
Hi All,
it is rather cold in DL. I miss Thailand and the warmer climate. In a few days, I will return  :)

Apologies for some silly questions.

  • The legal limit is still 10 W?
    Does a local shop sell 10 Watts versions of FM mobile transceivers?
    My father Ekkehard DB9SA has a 2 m mobile rig which I would like to use...
    Or would the hassle with import license, hardware registration, vat and tax payment make an import pointless?
    I want my YL to get the ticket and start on 2 meters.

Hello Chris

Its not worth the effort with the papers for import a 2m Rig they are so cheap here in Thailand and have the license already on it when you buy.
All mobiles as I understand are programed to start in the 10watt mode but they can leave the full capacity power.
So the legal limit is 10watts still

Dear Chris,

well the legal output on 144 - 146 MHz is still 10W. Incl. all the another regulation like external Ant. = Station Licences is required!


The IC 2200-T (T=Thailand) (~8000 Baht) has legal output power 10W incl. NTC Sticker .... but the real output is more ... but it is illegal ...

The only thing you have to do you have to get the rig registered in your name! - Rig Registeration! - Then the station licences and that's it - your are QRV!
