I can't speak for all Chinese radios, but the 2 that I own that work wouldn't get to the frequency outside the prescribed amateur band. I wasn't even able to monitor anything close to air traffic control, let alone attempt to key up.

Now the Yausu HT's (and mobile rigs) would allow monitoring, but they also give a TX Error should you attempt to key up. Yes there's a way around this, but it's not something I have done nor do I have any plans to do so.



Thanks for the channels Stan, I'm going to type a few of these in and listen in a bit.
