  • Top Handheld Radio

    posted by RoboW on 04/16/2014

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month


    Cheap, robust, easy to use

    Headset jack with same contacts like kenwood, so many accesories are working

    small: fits in pocket of my jacket
    has a Numpad! Big advantage to Radios like UV-3R

    Hard Button for on/off, cannot turn on accidentally in pocket (like UV-3R..)

    this is the third version of UV-5R, here is the design really nice compared to previous models (same name!)

    Battery runtime is amazing!


    Configuring repeater stations with different in and out frequencies is a bit confusing. I recommend to do this via programming cable, otherwise you need much time and steady nerves

    I don't know, why they put a led on top of the radio. Brightness is just ok, but the most of the light shines only on the antenna...


    The case doesn't have exactly the same size as the previous UV-5.. models, so some accessories like the extended battery or the outdoor case doesn't fit perfectly.


    Good choice as a handheld radio for everyday use
