BTECH UV‑5X3 - Adding 220MHz (1.25M) was just the start!
While maintaining the same classic design to allow full backward accessory capability, don't let the appearance fool you: The BTECH UV‑5X3 is the only radio in the series with new firmware features and menu updates!
New Firmware, Features, Options, and Menus: Only available on the UV‑5X3.
An exciting, new feature on the UV‑5X3 takes full advantage of the LCD's dual line display. In the past the dual display allowed you to monitor two different frequencies at once. Unfortunately, for user's that only wanted to monitor a single channel, the secondary line was of no use... until the UV‑5X3!
The UV‑5X3 allows users, who want to display the most information at once, to synchronize the display. This allows the LCD to show both the channel's frequency and channel name simultaneously. Display synchronization allows the user to maximize the available information seen at a glance!
Modify the Scanning List
A brand new menu allows for one of the biggest conveniences while scanning: Modifying the Scanning List!
Before the UV‑5X3, you couldn't manage the channel scan list without a computer. The brand new menu in the UV‑5X3 allows you to easily add and remove channels from the scanning list. Have a nuicanse channel that you want removed from the scan list? You no longer need to go home to a computer to remove it: A simple menu allows you modify your channel scan list without a computer
Channel Mode Modifications
The UV‑5X3 comes out of the rut that all other UV‑5 series radios are stuck in. The UV‑5X3, built with the amateur radio operator in mind, allows channel modifications on-the-fly.
Previously and on other current UV‑5 models, you were forced to delete a channel and then recreate it from scratch if you wanted to alter any settings.
The UV‑5X3 allows common edits to the channels: Such as adding, changing, or removing the privacy tones (CTCSS & DCS); or changing the power level. You no longer have to delete and recreate the channel over simple channel modifications.
Scan a Frequency Range
Scanning in frequency mode, just became practical! Exclusively on the BTECH UV‑5X3: You are able to scan through a specific frequency range.
Scanning frequencies before the UV‑5X3 required the user to scan the full frequency band they were using. This was not practical if you only wanted to watch for activity on a particular section of the band (such as only 222-225MHz in the above pictured example). The UV‑5X3 will scan at the frequency step you select in menu, which allows you to scan by increments from 2.5 to 50KHz. You can now scan through a fine tuned portion of the receiving band without having to wait and scan the whole band!

New Features and Menus
Simultaneous Display: For those that want to have the most information at their fingertips - you can 'Sync' the dual displays to show both the name and frequency. This allows the displays to be synched to the same channel while browsing your channel memories.
Channel Skip: Easily add or remove a channel from the scanning list.
Frequency Scanning: When scanning in the Frequency (VFO) Mode, you can easily enter in the range and frequency steps that you want to scan without scanning the full frequency band.
ANI Updates: Along with being able to previously send ANI (Identification); You can now enable "Decoding" the ANI right on the display
Remote Commands: The UV-5X3 can respond to remote commands. By remotely sending DTMF tones you can both 'Stun' (Transmit Disable) or 'Kill' (Disables all functions) the radio. You also can 'Revive' a radio from its "stun" or "kill" state. You can also remotely turn on the microphone 'Monitor' or ensure the radio is within range 'Inspect' (replies with a confirmation tone within range).

I would highly recommend this radio to any Ham Radio operator. This is the best handheld that I have used over the last 40 years.
Downsides: At this time there is no way to program the PowerOn Message, Stun, Kill, or Revive options - not from the radio nor software. There is also no way to program any menu settings from software, only channel memory settings (which is the majority of the work, but it is still nice to see all the knobs on the PC in the software). "Coming soon" to a CHIRP version near you.
Cons, not easy to program (programming within a decent time really requires the $30 cable and open free Chirp software, cable being more than half the price of the radio). Not as durable feeling as other established brands. Receiver is fairly narrow banded and doesn't lend well to opening up to receive "out of band" frequencies (though it can be done via software). No external charging port, can only be charged through the battery terminals.
Pros, fairly inexpensive compared to other options. Decent support from Btech USA. Comes with 2/440 and a 220 antenna. Good backup radio or a starting out radio. Decent receive and transmit (within the ham bands only). Btech includes an English manual (nice) and US support. Has earphones and charging stand included. It's a Tri-band, getting on 220 handheld radio for $50! Use the 220 band or lose it!
