  • Re: Inverter/ups, electrical

    a 7ah battery at C20 gives 350ma for 10 hours (50% DOD). It would give 700ma for 4 hours. Check the C rating of your specific battery. Most lead acids are C20.

    IIRC, the amp-hour rating is based on one tenth the draw over ten times the time, so a 7 AHr battery will give 700 mA over 10 hours but will give 7 A for less

    Good thing you're married, sailor! I may be cute, but I'm not easy. Besides, I've got a car battery and an old trolling, but don't want to spend money on SLA

Group Description

Discussion of the Baofeng UV-5R (family of) handheld transceivers. This model from Baofeng sports 2m and 440 as well as wide band receive. Several revisions add features.

This is a GREAT radio with a garbage manual. If you take the time to read, you can check out the resources below and have few problems. Else, you are almost guaranteed to be frustrated.

We welcome all members, please review this list before membership.

1. PLEASE, NO discussion of LEGALITY of this radio for FRS, GMRS, MURS, Marine, etc operation and FCC type acceptance for part 95 etc.
This radio is NOT approved for that use, but it is USA legal for commercial (if part 90 approved), amateur band, and any use as a receiver.

This is a very Old, very stale topic. You are not the FCC, and no one cares about your Frequency Cop opinion. Seek or start a separate Yahoo group if you can't help yourself. We all understand.

2. Be kind to your fellow list members. No flames, name calling, etc.

3. The USB cable and software can be tricky. Read the tutorial and FAQ.

4. Your other technical questions are likely answered there, so check http://www.miklor.com/uv5r/ first.

5. You should read the new user tutorial and FAQ below.

6. DON'T FEED THE TROLLS who bring up these topics. Just ignore it.

PLEASE Read This Tutorial first:(BELOW AS "GROUP WEBSITE" It will save you time and frustration.
