I currently reside in Japan (not on a military base) and I have been interested in purchasing some walkie talkies. I found these on amazon JP Link and I was wondering if can I own something like this without a license. Here are the specs.
Transmission and reception frequency: 422.050 ~ 422.300MHz (12.5KHz step) Types of radio wave: F3E Transmission output: 10mW Receiving sensitivity: -14dBμ following (12dB SINAD) Receiving system: double superheterodyne system Power supply voltage: DC3.6 ~ 4.5V (AA alkaline batteries × 3 This optional) Current consumption receiving standby time of about 50mA receive a maximum time of about 140mA during transmission about 70mA
I assumed that since it was on Amazon Jp that it must be legal in Japan but I thought that I should be safe than sorry. So are these walkie talkies legal and if they are would I need a license? Also do these seem like good quality walkie talkies? Would they have a good range (i.e. a few miles). I couldn't find and info about the distance on that amazon page.
