    Re: Everything BaoFeng & VHF Radios

    After going through a few hundred radios I will have to add this, I think those chinamen put every dam hardware in every dam radio out there. Pofung Nktech and Baofeng 5 watt 8 watt I doubt many could tell the difference. 2 days ago a simple UV-5r was picking up a signal 25k away. Zastone and tyt seem better built and heavier, although I have not tested ranges. I guess i should take the time to do this, but why, all i would get is a bunch of flack like skegpro got. Antennas do make a difference.

    Re: Everything BaoFeng & VHF Radios

    If this thread can stay on track it will be good. Any info is good info as far as I'm concerned. It's nice to know there is other options. I bought 2 radios from Ray, quick replies and sent out next day. Pre-programmed is What I liked. To busy with other things to dic$ around with that. The more info the better as far as I'm concerned. Ranges, antennas, different mics. I like being able to monitor 2 different channels. Think that's a neat feature. That being said I haven't played with them much yet.

    Meh if it saves some ungrateful kunts life it's worth it.

    These radios saved me once, just paying it forward.

    I definitely look forward to your input.

    I have tried quiet a few different mics so far, One did not even work, it was waterproof. I also have 3 coming. Best one so far is Bridgecom . Two out of the 3 coming look very similar to the Bridgecom. I will let you know how that turns out.

    Re: Everything BaoFeng & VHF Radios

    Ok, so I threw together a couple images for people to use.
    One of a UV-G3TP and one of a UV-82HP.

    Looking for feedback.
    Basic necessities. Not much else.
    I put together 5 Channels Sled#1-5 based on the 2M band plan for British Columbia and on a 15Khz spacing rasta as per standard.
    I used a tone code as I find this helps with interference in addition to squelch.
    I designated the national atv cordnation channel as our HELP! channel.
    And then RR channels and all the fluff.

    Help! is to be monitored on A.
    B is to your mic talking channel, Sled#1-5

    This way i figured if you actually need help you can switch to A and when you call someone from outside your group may actually be listening. (if we get enough buy in)
