By Lewis A Edge Junior TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE on June 19, 2015
Before I recieve in to the information on this well-designed, professional-searching equipment you need to address an "elephant within the room." Unlike hands-held, plug-and-play.5 watt walkie-talkies with non-removable antennas that you can use legally in the united states with no license but have much more limited range than many of them claim, These sophisticated, greater-powered dual-band, hands-held transceivers with removable antennas should be licensed for use in the united states legally. An FCC issued amateur "technicians" license may be the minimum requirement.
Another issue that needs to be addressed, is the fact that even though it is "legal" to pay attention on the frequencies included in these transceivers, with them to deliver outdoors the designated 420MHz-450MHz and 144MHz-148MHz amateur bands, may be the just like or worse than operating with no license, is against the law and could cause forfeiture of apparatus, Fines and even jail time. Frequencies from 400MHz to 420Hz are restricted to government only use. All bands could be scanned for active radio signals instantly. Therefore, anybody anticipating with such dual band transceivers for anything apart from listening should purchase themselves a duplicate from the ARRL Pork Radio License Manual like a study guide for license qualification. Then get yourself a license and operate the unit in compliance with FCC rules. Their range and performance are worthwhile.
Like a formerly FCC licensed broadcast engineer, who spent six years in america Military maintaining radar and communications equipment, my first impression of those amateur radio transceivers is the fact that they are built, feel and seem like military or professional equipment. Some minor set up is needed. Read more › 4 Comments Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback... Appreciate your feedback.If the review is inappropriate, Please tell us.

By Tinfoot TOP 50 REVIEWER on June 23, 2015
The very first two I received for evaluation I've since become another two. My immediate family all live inside a 3 mile radius, and being so impressed using the quality, I needed to get one readily available for each member of the family in situation of emergencies.
Although effective functions exist for advanced use, they are simple enough to be used by anyone straight out of the box (the default channels are open amateur frequencies). Taking the time to learn the advanced operations (and be FFC licensed, otherwise already) is a huge boon towards the versatility, yet to state it really, they are a superb accessory for any prepper bag. period.
These bankruptcies are not your cheapie "toy-like" walkie talkies. They're full fledged radio communication devices that particular legalities should be taken proper care of, such as the 400MHz to 420MHz range that's restricted to Government Only Use, along with other VHF bands. However, for private communication within the appropriate amateur channels, they are place on. I actually do recommend examining the "US Amateur Rf Allocations" around the ARRL Org page, but one note here:
"70 Centimeters
All Amateurs except Novices:
420./450.MHz: CW, Phone, image, MCW, RTTY/Data"
When there's nothing sitting down within the battery charging stand, or the radio is simply not pushing in fully (like my first-time), the sunshine does flash red/eco-friendly - meaning waiting for charging. That's so glaring and distracting, I will not leave the charger connected once the radio is not inside it. But that's the main one and only drawback I possibly could find. The sunshine is red while charging, and turns eco-friendly when full.
good, solid feel - not very heavy, though not lightweight and flimsy. Read more › 2 Comments Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Kristi Gilleland TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE on June 22, 2015 Free product deliver to evaluation and review.
Note: these radios have to be carefully programmed so that you don't transmit on frequencies that you're not licensed to deliver on. These radios can handle several functions, including monitoring and transmitting on restricted bands. Unlicensed transmission on restricted bands can transport strict legal penalties.
in my purposes, my hubby needed so that you can talk to a student inside a forested area and lumberyard that's around 1/2-1 mile range on the temporary basis, then we'll utilize it like a family walkie-talkie. It holds a great charge and has stored going strong through workdays. the seem is extremely obvious, and the amount appears quite loud, and could be heard over/inside a running forklift.
This radio could be programmed with CHIRP software, that is liberated to download online, but you will need an optional cable to achieve that with: AGPtek? USB Programming Cable for Baofeng Ultra violet-5R Radio + Free Program Software CD I confirmed using the maker this cable was the correct one with this radio set.
or, Alternatively, you are able to program it while using menu function around the keypad. I've found recption menus options very simple to use. Go into Frequency mode, then make use of the menu button. You are able to toggle options using the arrow keys, or type the amount of the choice that you would like to enter in. To toggle values, press recption menus key again, make use of the up and lower arrows, then make use of the menu button to verify - it'll say `confirmed.' After that you can press the exit button.
