Yes they work the same in Belize except each radio must have a permit and you are only allowed to use the channels they assign to you. Cost is 10 Bze per year per radio.

You will need to get a permit before you bring it down or it may be confiscated at the border.

You can have it "secured" at the border by customs and come back with the permit to have it released.

We have a number of marine band radios. The ones we used that were licensed had nationwide coverage. We paid $100 per year for the channel and then $10 per radio set to be on the band.

Ham radios are a little more tricky if you want to have decent range.

Iím going to guess that the higher fee for a VHF Marine radio is for a land based station. The lower fee was for licenses which are supposed to be used for marine purposes. I've never heard of Marine Channels being sold.

Hams are a totally different situation which requires an examination for a license and more expensive equipment and many regulations. If not done properly I would not be happy if a ham operator was next house over interfering with TV and other electronic equipment which can happen. They operate at high wattage and are suppose to be used for long range. They are not really suitable for this discussion. The other long range radio which I had a license for is Single Side Band. This is another long range radio not to be used for short range, you need to be licensed and is highly regulated with much regulated frequencies. This radio is also intended for Marine use.

The good thing about CB is that it doesnít interfere too much with other electronics, is short range and simple to operate.

Iíve seen 2 way radios being used on AC I believe and that is probably the best solution for use between people who want to stay in contact with minimum regulation. I do not know what the regulations for this type are in Belize. They are next to nothing in the USA.
