Hi Fred, Nice report on the radio, Have you seen the Baofeng UV-3R, also very neat radio with commonly available phone battery.
Get your ham licence its easy to pass will give you more contacts.

I have a couple of Baofeng 888’s, if I wanted to add to or replace would you recommend I stick with 888’s or one of these, like you, I only use them on PMR

Reg Natarajan says:

Really useful video. I was about to buy one without the programming cable since I already had a normal Baofeng cable. Your vid showed me the error of my ways. 🙂 Glad I watched before buying. I’ll still buy, but I’ll buy a bundle.

Michael Loughlin says:

These look similar to my hytera pd 365lf analogue digital radio’s enjoyed the video Fred.

Baron Czeska says:

Frequencies in the video do not correspond with each other.

Joel Caulkins says:

Great video Fred. I have looked at getting a couple of T1’s but was confused about the frequency coverage myself. By the way, somebody sent the author of Chirp one of these radios and he posted on my Bitx Ham radio group that Chirp will work with it by the end of the week. So should be soon. I agree, probably only good for PMR or as the call it in the US FRS, family radio service.


I want to put the open frequency here from Brazil that is 462 to 467 in UHF, DOES IT SUPPORT?

Robert Cheong says:

CHIRP now supports the Baofeng T1. I just made changes to my radio using CHIRP when the 9100 software failed me.

stephen gunrunner hanson says:

great video Fred I have two Binatone Terrian  750s  And they get out better then that radio better sound and a great range we use them when out fishing or shooting  looks ok but I would think Baofeng in name only

Arief Rahmat Pamungkas says:

Aero Snake says:

Do you need a license in the EU to use this?
