Hello everyone

I have been running around like headless chicken at dragon mart trying to find Motorola GP 338+ but apparently it is banned and most of the shops have only pre programmed walkie talkies with fixed channels and they can't tell if it is possible to Programme it or no

Anyone has any clue if Motorola 777 Mt can be programmed? Or even better if ICOM IC V8 because I have 8 already in my office

I appreciate any quick help because I need it before Friday (Ideally today) to be ready for Friday's ride

I have just been told by the official distributor of Motorola in uae that anything above 446 MHZ requires a license and they don't issue that license for offroading purposes

Any suggestion?

Motorolla 777 is the one which most of us use. Ask them to programme it for you to have the regular frequencies. You will find the usual frequencies with channels on DO forum if u search for it. But the DM guys know them and will do it for u.

Hi, I want to join as first timer. I bought a radio and air compressor but I couldn't find a flag pole. I checked the list it says flag pole except first timers so may I join without a flag pole

Their location

Flag is a very important safety tool hence we recommend that all cars in the convoy should have it. However, if you cannot manage for this week, it is ok for you to join but please manage it before the next drive.
