As a buyer of well-over 300 Baofeng radios (and counting) for the group I belong to (not all of which were purchased through Amazon but many were), I'm always amazed at the lengths some sellers go to to hype their products as being "newer" or "better" than other models, or perhaps (to give them the benefit of the doubt) they just don't know any better.

First, the Baofeng UV-5R series (including the original and still extremely popular UV-5R, I'll explain why in a minute) is what is normally referred to by many as a SDR radio (or software defined radio). While not a true SDR product (you can't use it with your computer to control the radio's functions or scan a wide amount of VHF/UHF frequencies with it), none the less a large chip is programmed on the circuit board built inside each radio. That chip determines what capability the radio itself can perform.

Every UV-5R series radio has the ability to transmit from 136-174 MHz on VHF and from 400-520 MHz on UHF in both narrow-band and wide-band modes (very useful for the occasional FRS or MURS use, which requires narrow-band mode to work correctly).

Every model does "at least" 4W on VHF/UHF from the factory, but occasionally you'll get a batch that does 4.5W or even 5W out, but the difference between 4W and 5W is minimal at best. A 4W radio with a better antenna will easily outperform a 5W radio with the standard crappy antenna that Baofeng ships on ALL (including the UV-5RA, -5RAX, and -5RAX+) models.

Baofeng DOES NOT program those chips any differently for the UV-5R vs. any other UV-5R series (including the UV-5RA).

I bought this 5RA as soon as I saw something beside the 5r which I already have.

The 5RA has slightly different button shapes but programming and layout is the same. Programming this with the handheld is a nightmare. Not impossible or hard but time consuming. The directions are worthless and the exact same as the previous version. Buy the 5r usb programming cable to make your life easier.

Seems like they addressed some firmware shortfalls of the 5r and transmit power is slightly better.
Some of the menu text on screen is "cleaned up" meaning they use less characters to get across the same point.

If you are going to hook it up to a external antenna I use a female SMA to female pl259 connector (SO-239). The "reverse SMA" connection is the only thing limiting your antenna choices.

For the price you cannot go wrong. Not a huge fan of the origin of manufacture but the quality far exceeds the price.

The 5r comes with a ear bud/mic this version (5ra) does NOT.

**Update:
As I played with it next to the 5r, I noticed the screen being behind the new plastic causes a "shadow bar" across the bottom at most angles on the screen. In bright light the redesign can reflect it back at you.

Firmware on my handheld was:
BFB281

I like this Radio! Owners manual is pretty weak. Get on the internet, read the tutorials, and you can have frequencies programmed in minutes. Then hit your local repeater.

Its simple to program!!!

Monitor NOAA weather, local police, Fire, and FM radio

The radio feels solid in you hand. The controls are solid.
Antenna works just fine. I would like to try a better one just out of curiosity.

I think it is a great first Amateur Hand held.

I bought the 5R and since I have to have the latest toys, I bought the 5RA. I am not a radio techno, so I can't tell you the difference from a technical standpoint, but I actually like the look of the 5R a little better. I work part time as a Cop and the 5RA looks like a toy on my belt. The 5R is all black and looks more official. The 5RA has a silver plate on the front.

The 5RA speaker is crystal clear, it transmits fine, and hits the repeaters with no issues in NYC where I work. It is compact, fits in a back pocket, and is very light. The screen is easy to read. But with any of these radios buy the programming cable, it is a breeze to program.

Besides that you have to love these radios, with the $2.99 cable (you should buy) and software I downloaded. It took me about 4 minutes to program 24 channels, then it took me 10 seconds to clone it to another new radio. My only fear is that these Boafeng radios will become so popular that the price will go up !!

I have a 600 Vertex VX5 that is an amazing radio, but I put it in the desk for now. This is the new toy.

I almost gave up on programming this radio ... I could use the manual to put repeaters into the VFO but the information on storing them into the memory just was incomplete in the manual. I found a YouTube video that helped but it too was not quite correct. Finally able to program it by hand and could show someone else how to do it.
Some tips:
1. program the repeater or simplex frequency into the VFO mode and key up to be sure all is correct... offset,
transmit and receive frequencies, ctcss tones, and power.
2. Decide on you memory channel and then clean it out now.
3. Go through the steps in the book for programming the receiver and then push menu again and enter the actual Xmit frequency, PUSH MENU again (the radio should tell you it is the Xmit frequency) and then follow with Exit.
4. Test the memory that it works.
OR
Search for the CHIRP (free) program and download it, download the driver for the cable and then with a littl more effort you can program the radio... remember to upload the frequencies first from radio to computer then change at will.
The CHIRP software has a nice repeater lookup feature where you can search nearby counties for all the repeater info... then just check the ones you want and bingo: they will appear in the database... remember to enlarge the data base beyond the orginal size fit everything in you want.
