New radio "Thanks Brick!!!"

You guys really need to check out Brickolores site (link is on the left) He reviews or has link's to a handful of new import radios on his site every month.

I purchased another Baofeng after reading some reviews on his blog. The UV-B5 is going to replace my uvr5+. Let you all know how it is as soon as I get it in 1 week.

P.S. Don't let Brick touch any of your radio's he has a habit of breaking things :)

Update 7/10/2013: This radio might go back just as quick as i ordered it. I need something that goes up to 480 mhz and this new model only goes to 470 mhz. Anyone have a suggestion for a new Chinese radio that will go to 480 mhz in the same price range?


  1. You sure you don't want me to test it for you? What could go wrong?

    Are you sure it won't exceed 470 MHz with the factory software or with Chirp? I haven't tried it on mine yet, but now you've got be curious....

  3. I wont know till I get the radio. I hope it does go past 470 My local PD is on 477.0625. Hopefully I don't have to send it back.
