    I cannot understand the language but it looks like it reaches 25 watts at some frequency. 152.000 looks like 22 watts

    I still think you need a speaker mic and a better antenna with these radios to get them to work the way they should, my testing confirmed this as well. But man it out did my 25 watt kenwood.

    With 8w baofeng it looks like 165000 frequency is by far the strongest on his meter

    Thanks to skegpro and everyone else, for sharing the awesome tutorial guide and CSV spreadsheet. I got a couple Baofengs programmed this afternoon and it was super quick and simple.

    Re: Everything BaoFeng & VHF Radios

    Today my leixon note shows up, pretty heavy duty radio by the looks of it and dam it's pretty impressive, called a Buddy across town and said he heard me great and I was not even on full power.. Lol 12 miles about

    going by the video on high power it put out close to 40 watt.. Almost crazy to think that, but not sure if the antenna will handle that.. Keep my face away on hi power setting thou...

    should work decent im guessing with the 16inch whip in mountai. Terrain

    Question for you fellas, I have a Baofeng UV-8, and the mic I got with it, has crapped out. What are people using that has a better IP rating that won't break the bank, and is compatable with the radio. Thanks for the help

    When I ordered my radios I just got the cheap Baofeng mics. They work pretty good. Then I ordered a couple Bridgecom mics. They are louder and clearer but more expensive. These ones on ebay look identical and are cheaper. I believe X-it said they work just as good as the Bridgecom mics. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Speaker-Mic-...53.m1438.l2649

    I have one of these and it is super loud and clear but has crapped out on the transmit from what I believe is water damage. I just ordered another one and will be rigging up a pantyhose cover for it reduce icing and moisture. For the price if I need to replace it every year then so be it.
