There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
To mitigate this one can open up the shell carefully (it is glued with super glue in a couple of places) then put a knot into the cable to go inside the enclosure to act as a strain relief for the wire. Takes only a couple of minutes to do, and this will make it last a very long time. One has to be careful when re-assembling the shell to make sure not to reverse the positive and negative contacts as they are not labeled in any way. Once you fix this problem the unit works as advertised, and the voltage output is a stable 8V on my unit.
Why in the world the people who sell this did not do that is beyond my understanding, its just a totally stupid oversight.
AFA operation setting inside my brick house I was receiving from a source over 20 miles away (antenna elevation about 36'). I was unable to hit the repeaters that are about 20+ miles away from inside the house with the stock antenna. Today I will try a couple after market antennas and from a place my cell usally works at (very poor cell service where I am).
I purchased these to get both my dauther and I our license and to use them when we are out on the ATVs/camping/hiking/ and hunting. Maybe it will be something she will stick with. Of course emergency situations these may come in handy as well.
I only gave these a three star rating since I don't like thinking I am getting updated antennas and don't. Other than that it would had been a four with after some use a possible 5. To bad the pic is wrong and misleading.
I bought 2 of these, the labels were slightly different and the LED flashlights had a different shade of blue.
It took a little bit of time for me to figure out to program form the keypad, but not as difficult as ssome people make it out to be.
I used the CHIRP software, but it at times has refused to recognise my radio with older versions of CHIRP.
The newest version of CHIRP as of this review can fix the lack of squelch these radios have out of the box.
I like the Baofeng software, but that doesn't seem to be able to fix the squelch issue.
The flashlight LED on the first radio failed, but that might have happened because the LED may have lost solder contact when the LED was bumped. The plastic peace on the wrist strap of the first radio fractured after a while.
On the second radio, the stock antenna failed on me.
The first radio's antenna is still intact, but I have replaced them both with these antennas here I have also reviewed: http://www.amazon.com/Female-Antenna-Walkie-Talkie-Radio/dp/B008P7YX4Y/
With the stock antenna, you will not get out more than a few blocks in an urban area VHF simplex even with the 4 watts, VHF is okay if you can reach high repeaters. UHF with stock antenna penetrates buildings fine, it will do atleast a mile simplex on UHF. With the replacement antenna so far I have been able to reach a VHF repeater 20 miles away.
With the Tram 1185 mobile magnet mount antenna, on VHF I have done simplex for about 15 miles in a flat area, and have been able to reach a repeater 100 miles away on VHF over flat terrain. In a hilly area on simplex with VHF and UHF I have been able to reach 2.5 miles with the radio on the other end just being inside the second story.
The car power adapter here only works for receiving, on transmitt it will shutdown the radio: http://www.amazon.com/EarlyBirdSavings-Battery-Adapter-Eliminator-Baofeng/dp/B009RCQWLI/ref=cm_cr-mr-title
The FM broadcast band(65-108mhz(some areas still with analog VHF low TV, audio from that might also be heard)) recieve is okay, they aren't the best recievers, but it is okay. Stock antenna isn't very useful for recieving, the replacement whips and mag mount I have mentioned do better.
Overall, like I've said they're okay radios.
For 30-40 dollars it is worth it, don't expect it to be on par with a Motorola or Kenwood that costs hundreds.
