The box says professional, but inside the instructions say Amateur, which I regard as slyness. Like, amateur walkie-talkies. Everything you need for work is included in the kit - a lithium battery, a mains charger, an antenna, a clip and a wired hands free headset. We chose red walkie-talkies, although black and several other variations were available. The case is made with high quality, does not creak, but its shape is somehow frivolous. Reminds me of a toy. The walkie-talkies are really…

  • Very cheap for such walkie-talkies, good sound quality.
  • They look a bit like toys

The average product, you can find a better one.

The walkie-talkie works, but the display is defective, some of the characters are not displayed, the reason is chips and cracks on the display in the area of ​​​​the cable, the seller most likely knew about the defect, because. made a discount on the product, after contacting support he offered a promotional code for 400, which suited me, with delivery it turned out to be 1189, the LCD screen costs 100 on alik and it’s not a problem to change, it still turned out to be many times cheaper!

Im amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

Inexpensive walkie-talkie with a complete set. Transmits and receives correctly. Can be used as an FM receiver. On sale there are a bunch of accessories for it, of particular importance among which are an extended battery and adapters for AA and AAA batteries. 6 AAA batteries at 900 mAh give a capacity of 5400 mAh, which is much more than the declared capacity of the bundled battery of 1800 mAh. For simple practical purposes, its functionality is rather redundant (ordinary walkie-talkies are…

I'm impressed! Exactly the product deserves your attention.

The signal does not pass through the ridge to another mountain (how unexpected! ), but on one mountain from the top to the descent, taking into account all the uneven terrain and in different weather, the signal always made its way and the quality was excellent.

I really like the product, it fully meets my expectations.

With its pros: wide-range (before using it is worth studying at what frequencies you can work in 2022 LPD and PMR, the ability to memorize channels and many other useful functions Its cons: the volume of this copy turned out to be lower than the one that was ordered earlier, of course from the realm of fantasy, but the SV range of long-range combat does not work

I didnt expect the quality to be so high.

Different pros: ski Dombay + first lift station) In a city 4.7 km in a residential area, the signal was poor, but the words were distinguishable Holds a charge very well Its cons: Finding call buttons and two others (almost not used) on one side.

Matches the description completely, very satisfied.

They took it from ALI, for fishing, hiking and long trips by car, Crimea, Karelia, etc. , it takes badly with a standard antenna in the car, bought additional external antennas on a magnet, NAGOYA UT-106UV, the range increased 2 times, and in the city of cops catches better.

I didn't expect the quality to be so high.

price, In line of sight, it breaks "with a bang" 10-12 and the whistle of the wind is in your ears - you can hear it loudly, this ailment by a quick "off-on" Does not like 2022 -18C,

The quality exceeds all expectations, I recommend to buy.

Video instruction on the radio menu, still relevant - v=HlFn1zIiqE0 Suitable not only for the fifth bao but also for various others. Has pros: Budget, In general, the appearance of the UV-5R probably gave a new impetus to amateur radio, on VHF, since the station was well, fans can modify it for themselves :-) Cons below: All the shortcomings from the budget, the quality of UV-5 supply and a specific customer at the manufacturer'

The right product for me, there were no problems.

Baofeng UV-5R has good functionality and technical characteristics, Org/elektronika/obzor-radiostantsii-baofeng-uv-5 Some pros: just lucky) characters, but many do not even have this. With its cons: After six months of use, when it' but for $5-10 you can buy a better one.

Best price for this product, will buy more!

In general, BAOFENG UV-5 and for people who are not demanding on a stable constant connection, to a connection of medium quality, it’ you need to configure it via a computer + you have to speak louder and closer! Or make your own! the cons are because, for normal communication, this is important.

  • in terms of price + frequency bands 136-174MHz 400-520 In the city about 1.5KM 2-3
  • In the place where the standard antenna is connected, the noise reduction is set to ty, it often “puffs up somewhere” it would be great! Despite the fact that this is a direct conversion RDA 1846 Modulation, like many "baofengs", Or customize it yourself! This is a big minus.
