Baofeng UV-5R and Wouxun KG-UV2D Dual Band Radios… A comparison
It was time to get a new 2 meter HT and I decided to get a dual band this time. I recently purchased on Amazon two Boafeng UV-5RV2+ radios for under $70 and like them very much. Here is the link for the Amazon deal… http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IA9Q78W/ref=pe_385040_127541860_TE_dp_2
Here is a good video comparing the Baofeng and Wouxun Dual Banders…
I will need to add a better antenna to them but for the money they seem pretty nice. Audio is excellent. Programming them manually is a bit of a pain in the drain, so I downloaded the free CHIRP software and had them programmed in under an hour. Once you get a sense of the CHIRP software future changes will go smoothly. (I’ll post another video about using CHIRP.)
