This radio has a legendary reputation and absolutely deserves all the hype it’s been getting. I think i promised to deliver last week.
Most of them are simply gimmicks to get your money, some, however, are actual improvements over the classic.
Baofeng uv-5r power mod. Rf power may be selected at 4 or 1 watts. And there’s no need to pay extra money to get the cable and software. There are many options for node radios.
These are cheap radios of course, but one of the neatest things is that they are cheap partly because they have a lot of functionality integrated. These are not my own but an article found on the internet from dg2iaq and kx3dx. Then i flipped back to vhf, and still heard him.
Key lock and built in flashlight. Show activity on this post. We made a qso, on 220 band.
What i would like to do with these is build a foxhunt transmitter. Clearly baofeng sees these as different radios. Apologies for taking longer than i intended to make and post the tutorial.
So, you finally did it. Sure, i could set it to low power (1 watt) and put it through a less efficient antenna, where it will radiate less erp wise, but it will still get quite. Just get the cable, because the baofeng software it comes with is only slightly better than the baofeng manual the radio comes with.
Here are some hardware modification to improve your baofeng’s radio performance. My my paramotor helmet requires 3.3 to 5 v power supply for its microphone amplifier. This nagoya antenna can give your radio a gain of 2.15dbi and is compatible with almost all btech and baofeng models.
This information is provided in the rda1846 documentation in the file area. I have a few baofeng uv5r handhelds sitting around that only transmit, the receiver is damaged. The following post did catch my eye with its certainty that it works on all newer firmwares.
Baofeng should take notes, charging the uv5 with any regular phone charger (or external battery, for that matter) would extend a lot their mobility. I have done some modification on my radio and i can say that the […] The process is very simple to setup.
As cool as making qsos on three bands at once might be, we decided that it was time to kill that project. I wondered about their 220 capabilities but vhf stopped at 175mhz. If you decide to put the ra.
The radio does have some very minor quirks which are of no consequence for my purposes. 2.5, 5, 6.25, 10, 12.5 and 25 khz. Then i remembered these settings in chirp, and reprogrammed the vhf side go to 300.
If you’re into fixing and breaking things then this article is a must try. This picture below shows the points that have to be trimed. More power translates to a better range, especially when you upgrade the stock antenna.
That is due to it having ten times the legal transmit power. A dermel tool might be best used for this mod.
