This BaoFeng ham radio is just what any ham radio junkie needs. This radio can receive as well as transmit on frequencies from 136 to 470 Mhz and has a super strong, omni-directional RF signal. I searched around for a good price and a reputable place to buy the UV-5R, since I’m a ham radio operator. This is a very good radio for a beginner to enjoy talking to other HAM operators. It uses FRS (favorite radio system) radio signals to communicate with anyone of a similar model.

I love this radio and it has a great range! I will say the solar battery was rather large. There’s no way I could squeeze that battery into my backpack. We purchased this item to give as a gift to our newly acquired ham radio license. We use this unit to talk with other hams in the neighborhood and to communicate with the police, fire department, and other emergency services. This is a great ham radio that is easy to use and has a very inexpensive price tag.

This Baofeng ham radio has an FM receive frequency of 108~108.1MHz and a UHF receive frequency of 400-480 MHz. The UHF band has the most channels that are allowed to be used without purchasing a license.  I purchased this great little radio because I wanted something small and easy to operate. The price was very reasonable and the quality is outstanding. The BaoFeng UV-5R is an affordable VHF and UHF handheld transceiver that can be easily integrated into a ham radio enthusiast’s life.
