First 16 Channel PMR446 Appears Online

After some EU countries adopted the new 16 channel PMR446 standard recently the first new radio has appeared online on the Mass Electronik website.

Priced at €98.00 (£88) it certainly isn't the cheapest PMR radio out there but prices will certainly fall as other 16 channel radios become available over time.

Of course this is still 500mw output with integrated antenna but now with 16 channels instead of just 8.
