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. You should read the new user tutorial and FAQ below.
2. The USB cable and software can be tricky. Read the tutorial and FAQ.
3. Your other questions are likely answered there, so please look first.
4. Be kind to your fellow list members.
5. PLEASE also no discussion of LEGALITY of this radio for FRS, GMRS, etc operation and FCC part acceptance for part 95 etc. This radio is NOT approved for that use, but it is USA legal for commercial. amateur band and any use as a receiver. Old, very stale topic.
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.
