YET Another HT From China


Yup! You guessed it, it’s another HT from our “friends” in China. There’s been a lot of chat about these radios. It would satisfy my curiosity if someone could point me to a site to break down the differences between this growing list of Baofeng Transceivers.

So far I have heard of the UV-3R 5R 5RA 5RB 5RC 5RE and now the UV-B5 B6. Does this mean they can’t get it right or the improvements are coming at a fast and furious pace?

This one, the UV-B5 is supposed to be the very latest in a long line of Baofeng UV-X series of Dual Band HT transceivers.

If you want to look deep into the details and get a full analysis of the performance of the new BAOFENG UV-B5 / UV-B6, take a spin over to:
