Something interesting that I'm sure many people have wondered about. How do you fit an external antenna to your Floureon FC200 PMR radio?

Well David's video will show you how to remove the fixed antenna and fit a BNC connector.

UK PMR Net - Every Sunday

Following on from a very successful event last Sunday the organisers of the UK PMR net have announced it will now take place every week.

Calling will take place on channel 8 from 8pm every Sunday. Please note if channel 8 is busy in your area please QSY to another channel once contact is made (After all, we do have 16 to choose from these days!)

Personally, I managed four contacts last week so fingers crossed I'll get a few more tonight.

ANOTHER Floureon FC200 PMR446 Radio Review


Isn't it always the same, you wait 18 months for someone else to review a radio then two come along together.....(See previous post)

This time we have an in depth review of the Floureon FC200 PMR446 radios including the optional battery packs.

We featured these lovely little radios on the blog back in 2018 and they have certainly proved to be very popular and are still one of the very few radios to feature the full 16 PMR446 channels.

Price: £15.99 per pair (Have been seen on offer at £8.99 in the past)

Floureon FC200 PMR446 Review

Video:YouTube/The Mic with Mike

We took a look at these fantastic little PMR446 radios back in 2018 when they first appeared so it's great to see people continue to discover them and appreciate just how good they are. In these troubled times PMR446 and CB Radio are a great way to keep in touch with fiends and family and certainly help people feel less isolated.
