I remember the days when dual band handies like this were three and four hundred dollars. It came as a shock when I spotted this one for just over thirty bucks. I thought it was an error. I like small, but I don't like so small that my hand is bigger than the radio. The simple looks are visually appealing as is the better audio and antenna performance over the tinier Baofeng models. It actually is much smaller than it looks in the photos, and fits perfectly in the average sized hand.
My first impression was not to expect much from a Chinese maker, as many other products from China seem to be inferior. Not so with the UV82L. This is an extremely well made, solid feeling radio that seems as if it could tumble down a rock embankment and come up with nothing more than a little dirt in the speaker holes. It's high impact plastic, and the battery fits snug enough to forget it isn't part of the structure. The antenna is a few inches longer than the radio itself, and screws snugly into the connector.
The programming logic is a departure from what I'm used to. Running in the VFO mode is easy. But even reading the instructions, saving a VFO frequency into a memory channel is not.
On the local repeater, the transmit audio reports are excellent, punchy sound quality. The receive audio quality is quite crisp and loud for such a small rig.
An odd but useful feature is the dual transmit buttons. There are two VFOs, and each is independent. You can set one up for the local repeater and the other for simplex as I did; on different or the same bands as you see fit.
Without any modifications, this radio will receive AND transmit from 136 to 174 MHz on VHF, and 400 to 520 MHz on UHF. Obviously, only the ham bands fall within spec, but you could program in a favorite FRS frequency. In addition, it receives the entire FM broadcast band from 65 to 108 Mhz for use in the US and overseas.
If there's anything cheap about the package, it's the drop in charger. It's light and cheap feeling, and if you don't line up the guide slots well, it's easy to drop the radio into it and not have it charge. You'll know when it's securely fit, as it snaps into place and the red charge light stays on. It turns green when charged, cutting off power so it won't overcharge the battery.
About a week after delivery, the numeric display went blank with the backlight still on. The radio would not operate, would not turn on, nor could I get the backlight to turn off. Only after removing the battery would the radio work again. A few days later, the same thing happened. I ordered two new UV82 radios (instaed of the UV82L). The difference between the UV82L and the UV82 is the L unit has a label that states it's exclusively sold on eBay and Amazon. The UV82 comes with all official Baofeng parts, whereas the L model has generic accessories without the Baofeng name. There is an internal firmware difference as well, because the new units needed a different file to work with CHIRP software. The UV82 is a couple dollars cheaper and comes in a bigger and better packaged box.
1. First a word about the uv-82L battery, Some advertise it as a it is the same as the 82. The 82L battery is really 7.4V/1800mAh.
2. Tested 2M and 70cm at ARRL 2014 Hamvention booth this weekend and 2nd order harmonic level is -52.44dBm and -49dBm for 2 and 70 respectively. The ARRL testers told me BaoFeng usually fails the FCC test (but by only 0.36 dBm).
3. Measured output is 5W and 4W on 2 and 70 respectively - good news
4. Programming issues. I purchased RT-Systems programming software at the show (great software and cable) - found the BaoFeng menu channel display does not display the actual values for offsets after being programmed (was told when using the BaoFeng's menu to review the channel values, the values default and don't display the correct programmed values - but that is not entirely true. Most menu displayed values were valid but some (like offset and ToneSq) were not displayed correctly. Bottom line is use caution if programming the BaoFeng without the software - use the software and don't use the BaoFeng memu to program the channel memory. Using the menu to program the freq values seems ok.
5. The included stub antenna had a hard time picking up the DARA repeater even at the show. When changed antennas to the Nagoya NA-771 signal level greatly improved.
6. Supplied ear piece mike combination is very nice; I specially like the ability to select the A/B freq from the mike. Oh the A/B switch is not a band switch; it is a freq switch. The A/B allows toggeling between 2 freqs.
7. The FM radio is decent and when a Ham freq being monitored becomes active, the FM radio drops out and the Ham freq is active again. Nice.
8. On the receiver, I noticed a little inter-mod at the Hamvention (a lot of signals nearby). Wish sensitivity was better, but not bad.
9. Battery charger was reported to have problems - mine did not. The battery charger worked perfect, just make sure battery is seated properly.
10 Extra functions like scan for CTCSS being used, Hi/Lo power, Wide/Narrow FM, VOX, and even flashlight are included.
In summation: All in all for $50 including earpiece and battery charger you can't go wrong, just buy a better antenna and use programming software 73s
I am a novice so I have not done much transmitting and reception from other radio operators.
The quality of the unit is great I will be ordering a second one.
