Setting Up My New VHF.

Recommended Posts

 Of interest, it's now impossible to import radio transmitting apparatus into NZ without a dealers registration number from RSM! Will be seized at the border.

So does this mean I shouldn't bring my handhelds with me when I come for a visit??

Which I'm told is that Z number.

No idea but it's all to do with importing "prohibited" equipment, that is transceivers that can operate beyond their intended specification. If it type approved, no problem. If not, you need a RSM registered dealer to import it for you and of course be legally allowed to have it in your possession so a appropriate qualification. Getting caught with a boefeng on marine channels is not a good idea.

icom, bought from a reputable dealer in the EU, so I guess all good. MROC is from NZ...

It will have a "CE" of some sort on it. If its a purpose built transceiver for the maritime service it will not be a problem. You might get asked to produce proof that you passed some exam on its use like you need in the UK, a operators certificate but I doubt they will bother. Customs are currently only concerned with monitoring the import of non type approved equipment. New regs that came out last year here.
