BaoFeng UV-82HP Additional Highlights and Features
Dual or Single Push-to-Talk Selectable
The UV-82 Series come with a dual push-to-talk button. The dual PTT allows you to transmit on two frequencies by the use of the rocker push-to-talk switch. By pressing 'up' you can transmit on 'Frequency A' and by pushing down you can transmit on 'Frequency B'.
Frequency A or B can also be used as a scanner of channels, frequencies, CTCSS and DTS tones.
Note: The BaoFeng UV-82HP allows you to synchronize the PTT button to re-enable a single Push-to-Talk switch. This simplifies the use for those who require only one frequency to talk on.

The UV-82HP is a major update to the previous UV-82 model with firmware, hardware, and even packing upgrades (including a US Based Warranty program and support manual).
There are a variety of BaoFengs models in existence, but generally no differences exist. Some models are even re-manufactured units.
No matter the model number BaoFeng radios are based on one of these chipsets.
The UV-82HP is a upgrade from the UV-82 and UV-5R series with the addition of features, power levels, and the updated chipset revision that supports the High Power.
The UV-82HP also includes: External Accessory Compatibility, FM Radio, Flashlight, Emergency Alarm.
The UV-82HP has one built-in receiver but can 'watch' two channels/frequencies (semi duplex). The UV-82HP will monitor both frequencies giving priority to the first station to receive an incoming call.
The UV-82HP supports CTCSS, DCS, and DTMF calling methods. Tone calling (private line) is required by most repeater applications and the UV-82HP supports the latest standards.
The UV-82HP can send DTMF tones. This allows for sending ANI (Caller ID) or remote commands that require DTMF tones.
The UV-82HP is able to Transmit on Narrowband (12.5kHz) and Wideband (25kHz).
BaoFeng UV-82 Series Radio
The UV-82 series is BaoFeng's most commercialized radio series. Compared to the UV-5R and other previous series; the UV-82 radios come with a much louder speaker (1 watt), while other current BaoFeng radios use a 700mW speaker.
The UV-82 series radios also have a more solid case that employ larger buttons as well compared to the previous BaoFeng series. The UV-82HP uses the latest BaoFeng chipset and PCB board that outperforms the range, accuracy, and output of the previous BaoFeng chipsets.
It is not simply a remake but a new radio from the ground up.

I drove around town testing this new UV-82HP unit with a family member at home, indoors, on another Baofeng handheld (standard UV-82). I can really tell the difference in how it performs from inside a car to another radio inside a house. I could drive about three miles from home and still have reasonable reception, which is excellent under those circumstances. I was able to get a response from local HAM repeaters easily (2-5 miles) and also repeaters over 10 miles from home, from inside my house. I am using the stock V-85 antenna included with many new Baofengs and am quite surprised at how well it does. I will now be carrying this new UV-82HP radio as my daily carry HT. For the low cost of this unit I am quite impressed with its capabilities. I already preferred the "commercial" build of the UV-82 line, and now I have all the goodies of the UV-82 along with a couple of extra watts of power for better communication (HP).
For a new ham on a budget, the UV-82HP receives and transmits (RX/TX) on the Ham 2 meter and 70 centimeter bands. To use the two Ham (2m and 70cm) bands you must have a valid Ham Technicians license. The GMRS, FRS, and MURS (walkie-talkie) frequencies can be used in an emergency only (the radio is too powerful and not FCC Part 95 certified for legal non-emergency use on the non-HAM bands).
This excellent radio, with features matching or exceeding much more expensive radios, is highly recommended for a person seeking his or her Ham Technician license!
Some of the elites and purists will mock Baofeng radios as low-grade, cheap Chinese junk. Which is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, after looking at the reviews it seemed that many people were happy with their purchases. I don't know if it was that I wasn't expecting much but this little radio has really impressed me. The more I learn about amateur radio and the competition, I am finding that this radio is hard to beat, and for the price - can't be beat.
Unboxing the radio I first noticed that the radio looks substantial and has quality feel in the hand. It certainly looks nicer in reality than it looks in the picture. I have a base model Baofeng 888s and this UV-82HP is finished much nicer and looks sharp. There is no shoddy workmanship visible.
The menu can be a bit daunting until you learn what the menu titles represent, after that, things become somewhat self explanatory. I have read many complaints about the difficulty of programming the Baofengs. However, following the instructions on miklor-dot-com I was able to program a repeater into the radio manually. It won't be hard to commit these steps to memory. I also have used CHIRP software, which is fairly easy. The easiest however is RT Systems, which I would highly recommend.
The three power settings are great. They can easily be toggled with one button operation on the keypad. I was hitting repeaters (high elevation) miles away while inside a building. My contacts were impressed that I was on handheld and reaching them.
I did immediately replace the stock antenna with a thin whip Comet. This is the antenna that got me out so far to the repeater. I have two of the units and doing simplex in a densely populated area we were able to stay connected at least 1.5 miles. That may not seem impressive but in densely populated area with neighborhoods and buildings (Los Angeles area) I was impressed.
After buying a roof-mount I was hitting far away repeaters with ease and my feedback was that I was coming in loud and clear.
The dual channel display is easy to read and can be customized to light up in different colors from within the menu or through software.
A real nice feature for this “cheaper” HT is that it listens to two different channels and/or bands at the same time. The PTT button is dual also. Pressing the top button will have you transmitting on the A display channel and pressing the bottom of the button will have you transmitting on the B display channel. That is not something you’ll find in some of the more expensive HT radios.
Battery life has been great lasting me for days. Mostly listening with a few transmissions.
It does a great job scanning which can be activating by pressing and holding a button on the keypad.
The belt clip that comes with the radio is strong and substantial. The spring tension is impressive.
I purchased a speaker mic for it. This was not dual-PTT that Baofeng sells but a single button. When using a single button speaker mic - if you have channel A selected you will be able to listen but not Tx. The trick to using a single button speaker mic when the dual PTT option is active is that you must have channel B (the bottom display) selected, doing so will allow you to both transmit and receive. This challenge is altogether avoided by purchasing Baofeng's dual PTT speak mic. I chose another single button brand though on a recommendation and it works fine for me.
VFO mode is very easy to access. Just hold down the menu key and turn the radio on.
I recently acquired a Yaesu FT-60. Yes, the superior Yaesu quality is immediately evident from the moment you pick it up and it is loads easier to manually program. However, the FT-60 costs over twice as much and still lacks some of the very nice features that the UV-82HP has. I have not used the Yaesu very much yet so I cannot give a full comparison. I may update this review at some point down the road to give some extra highlights and comparisons.
One thing to consider is that the Baofeng UV-82 allows you to transmit on FRS/MURS/GMRS frequencies. You should know that it is not legal to transmit on these frequencies due to the fact that this radio has a removable antenna and that it transmits at a higher wattage than what is allowed. However in case of a serious emergency you are allowed to use whatever means available to you to get assistance. The UV-82 gives you that just-in-case option. The Yaesu FT-60 will allow you to listen on the FRS/MURS/GMRS bands but not transmit.
I am very happy with this Baofeng. I will not hesitate to buy their products again in the future.
For this price I don’t see how you can go wrong.
