    Hi there. I wanted to use my Motorola CP200 UHF Walkies on a shoot with the P2
    Any chance UHF can interfere with 2.4 or 5.8ghz. ??? Or will I be ok?
    Thanks!

    Cut to " Action" over the Walkie and Phantom kills all on set...

    I've had several walkie-talkies used around my 2.4GHz radios with no ill effect, don't know the exact models though (weren't used by me).

    I have some cheap low-powered motorolas I use all the time as well, the only thing I've found to watch out for is that they can affect compass readings if they get within about 2 feet or so of it...so just be careful about that or be sure to calibrate afterwards.
