Cost: £75.00 for five years per site with no limit on the number of units used. Not as prone to interference from other users as the Simple UK Licence frequencies.
For systems operating more than 3km and typically up to 30km radius from a specified location usually using high power (25 watt) repeater base stations and vehicle mounted mobiles such as required by transport, service industry, couriers etc. Cost: dependent on location, frequency band and operational radius required .
