Baofeng prohibits unrestricted
New Zealand’s regulator RSM reports:
In August, we mentioned creating a prohibition notice for unrestricted two-way radios. This was to limit the availability to the general public for radios that don’t meet the Radio Standards.
The prohibition notice is ready to gazette and will come into effect on 18 October 2018.
