does the improvement from uv-5r to the 8W versions justify the extra buck?

>> Radio to radio cloning does not dump the whole memory of one radio

>> CHIRP is open source. You are welcome to take this on.

>> It is a date. Your guess is as good as mine as to what it represents.
>> All you have to do is edit the "master' image for 1 radio and import

>> UV-5R as my master image and import it into my BF-F8HP, UV-82, UV-82C,
>> UV-82HP and Wouxun KG-UV6D.
