Headed for lunch Saturday, friends noticed my Baofeng UV-5R handheld HT and asked about it. "There's an article on my blog," I told 'em, promising to put up a link.
So far, so good with mine, though I have worn the print off the button that switches between preset tuning and continuously-variable mode. Still works, and the little magic person inside announces the new mode when you push it. For what amounts to a disposable radio, that's pretty good.
