Wireless Intercoms in Canada

We quite frequently get requests for our MURS intercoms from people in Canada. Unfortunately we cannot ship these to Canada since they use a frequency that is used by government agencies for emergency purposes. MURS is schedule to be approved in Canada in 2014 though.

Some of our wireless products (Callboxes and base stations) do have IC approval (Canada’s equivalent of the FCC).  As part of that, radios we ship directly to Canada must have only the specific agreed upon frequencies available for field programming.

In other words, we have models that have a default freq. of 151.0550 MHz and 151.1150 MHz available for the customer to select between.

Note that there will be a few days delay on shipping these units out since we have to program them.

You can call IntercomsOnline.com and ask to speak to a product expert on which intercom you can use.

Wireless Intercoms for the United Kingdom

The 900MHz and MURS wireless intercoms we offer at IntercomsOnline are not for use in the United Kingdom (U.K.), but we do offer versions of the MURS intercoms that can be used in the U.K. if you are willing to get a license. There are a couple of good articles about the license free requirements of Europe below.

License-free usage in U.K. requires that radios have a fixed antenna and our radios have a removable antenna.  So to use our wireless intercoms, you will be required to get a license. See the Business Band link below for more information.
