County radios

We own a Private Mobile Radio (PMR) set which can be used to provide communication support for County, District and Group events of any size. They have been used at the Kent County Show, day events, group nights, fairs, car parking duties, wide games and many other events.

It is a low power system, which will give an effective operating range depending on the terrain. They are available for day, weekend or week hire, longer use by arrangement.

Radios can be booked in advance and may be available at short notice (2 days - to allow for charging). Radios need to be collected and returned (by the following week) from the Technology Advisor who lives in Maidstone. Training on how to use them will be provided on collection.

The set contains:

  • 13 x 2 Channel Radios with Leather cases, speaker microphones & ear pieces
  • 1 x 6 way charger (separate chargers are available upon request)


Hire donation of at least £10 / event day with a Group/District deposit cheque of £100 both cheques should be made payable to 'Kent Scout Council' and be brought with you when the radios are being collected. Any damage or loss during the hire will be charged at the current price to replace the damaged goods with the exactly same specification.

Please contact us to book or if you have any questions.
