Part 1 of the Ham Radio Crash Course BaoFeng UV5R and Family radio tutorial on setting and programming.
A low cost radio to add your preps is the Baofeng family of radios. I have several of these including the UV5R, BF-F8HP, and UV-82. The low cost UV5R is probably one of the most popular in the prepper community because of it’s features and low cost. It’s a great radio to toss in your bug out bag or carry with you in your car. I prefer the the BF-F8HP because of it’s higher output power.
