New Arrival: Baofeng UV-B5

A review sample of the Baofeng UV-B5 was delivered today. The radio arrived very late, which means I can’t say much about it yet. However. even without the use of fancy test equipment and without peeking inside, one thing is for sure: this low cost radio has the best receiver and front end in its class. Normally these radios suck at that; we might be in for a pleasant surprise.

More to follow in the next few days.
