Walkie Talkies

Has anyone used the good Motorola type walkie talkies in Mazatlan? Do they work there? Some comments on other forums that they are illegal in Mexico and could be confiscated. Has anyone had this happen to them?

We used them in October...had to share channels sometimes but no problem.

The law....you must have a license to transmit radio signals in Mexico. The reality.... who cares? (I am talking about walkie talkies here, not 5,000 watt radios.)

We used walkie talkies last year and will probably do it again this year.

We used the Cobra "12 mile" ones when we were there Christmas week. They worked...just ok, but were worth it.
