  • Some Baofeng radios make a pulsing noise that is way more rapid than normal picket fencing, Rayleigh fading or phase cancellation. It sounds almost like a geiger counter. I don't know what causes it. It's not the antenna. I have been using VHF/UHF FM radios almost on a daily basis since 1981 and have never seen this in other radios. Some of the newer mobile radios have a problem...

  • I was referring the tiny 25W dual band mobile and the slightly larger 50W dual band mobile. I didn't know anybody in the US was selling a UHF single band mobile. I guess it must be a clone of the TYT TH-900D or Anytone AT-588.

  • This includes the requirement that only equipment certified for Part 95 can be used. Tom > By the way, FRS is not a no-license service, it is License by Rule. > There is a difference.

  • Doesn't Chirp read the frequency limits that are already in the radio?

  • The UV-82 has a bigger speaker that sounds better than the UV-5R, bigger keys, numeric keypad laid out correctly, and two PTT switches. Otherwise the guts are the same radio with the same (in some cases piss poor) performance. Tom
