VHF Fm Transceiver

I have recently fitted a VHF FM Transceiver in my Landy in preparation for a trip going through Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique and then back to South Africa. Can anybody give advice on paperwork/licences required to avoid any unnecessary problems in these countries ?

defender puma engine

Hi - it's back to my old problem of overheating and then going into limp mode. I have now had a suspected overheated engine and had the cylinder head skimmed as I was losing a lot of water and no leak was evident.
