Thanks Bev. :thumb:A couple of things you need to know to pursue this:
Walkie-talkies are called Talkie-Walkies in French. (Hey, why not?)
They operate under a regulation called PMR (private mobile radio) and the relevant portion for license free walkie-talkies (or talkie walkies) is PMR446. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/PMR446
Whether or not you need a license depends on the model (and obviously what bands the model allows you to access).
But from what I can tell, PMR446 is a European-wide norm.
Thanks Bev. :thumb:
I never thought the name would be back to front. That's France
DejW,Interesting comment! Cirrus, you write as if there is a correct and wrong way of writing W/t or t/w.
As expats perhaps we have to understand deep in our souls that it's not right / wrong ... but different.
I use the word soul because it's easy for the brain to appreciate the differences, but deep, deep down inside we see "wrong"?
Clearly with the subject t/w. or w/t it's not important, but the principle can apply to much bigger things?
Right, wrong, correct, souls, brain.
Hmm, sermon, lecture or reprimand?
I made no mention of right or wrong.
W/T originated as walkie talkie (1940 I believe), no need to reverse it (if you prefer to back to front) and confuse.
On this occasion, I won’t be ticking ‘LIKE’ for your post.
