Re: [baofeng_uv5r] voice
- A form of read-only memory, Consider it an older but more durable form of modern flash memory but with the major difference being that you can't access its contents to change anything. The only way to change it is to swap the eprom chip for another with the code you want, e.g English voice commands rather than Mandarin or whatever it is we now have or in some cases, erase the contents and reprogram it.. I doubt that the type used in the UV-5R would allow erasing and reprograming. I suspect they have used a one-time programing device on cost grounds.
Unlike the Wouxun, which lets you switch between English , Mandarin or Korean, as I recall, each UV-5R only comes with one language..

Ok I thought that might be it. What’s a eprom? I have never heard of it. I decided I have had my radio for two days programmed by key pad and software I will just keep it. The radio as a simple dual band rig it works pretty good.
Firmware it is Jimmy, or in other words, software that the user can't change. I imagine it is like the Quangsheng and requires the installation of an eprom.

What is the difference between the radios were the voice is Chinese and the English (other that the language difference) what makes it that way software? A chip? Or I have heard the term firmware or something like. Just wondering if it software or what that makes it one or the two languages.
