And Wouxun has a pretty clean transmitter too.  I have the 144/440 and the 144/220.  You get what you pay for.  Unfortunately, the folks with the noisy transmitters don’t know it….. only their neighbors get the negative benefit of the cheap radios.  A spectrum Analyzer shows the real story.  I wish more folks would look at that.

Wouxun makes the KG-UV8e tri-band not too terribly priced.

I bought the BaoFeng UV-5x3  to get access to 220 mHz as I do not have a radio on that band

it is great for just traveling around and being able to hit repeaters from your hotel room or if

you have an external antenna on the vehicle you can hook up to it, even as a mobile. It is given

to intermod when you are in high population areas but beyond that the only other thing that

comes to mind is it is a wee bit slow in the RX<>TX transitions, but you learn to live with it.

 

For the price it is hard to beat, and it you do break it do you do not cry too much.

Password protection may be a nice feature, but you may lock others out in an emergency situation, and in those cases anyone can use the radio if needed in an emergency where the primary operator is incapacitated. Something to consider.

if anyone has any input to the manufacturer, a great thing to add is a way to password protect the radio from unauth. use. Be great!!

Just to be clear, this is a BTech radio manufactured for and sold by
Baofeng Tech (the radio dealer in the USA). Even though it resembles,
the UV-5R and other similar Baofeng radio models, it is not made by
Baofeng (the radio manufacturer in China).
