Dual band, dual display HT transceiver. Since its introduction the UV-5R has seen a massive success, thanks to its performance and price.

There are several cosmetic variants of the UV-5R. These variants have no differences from the UV-5R besides their cosmetic design along with the possible removal of the 'Band Key' (no longer required in Gen. 2).

Variations include the: UV-5R v2+, UV-5RA, UV-5RE, UV-5R+ (Plus), along with several other lesser produced variants. Some of these variations may also no longer work with case specific accessories such as the original UV-5R batteries.

Good Starter H.T.

Baofeng UV-5R, Dual band FM Transceiver

I bought this as a back up just in case I was working an event with ARES and my main H.T. failed. I had heard a lot of negative comments about it however I found out they were wrong. I like all the extra features on it flash light etc. I had it checked at a hamfeast and it was a little bit better than my Vertex-150 H.T. Over all for the price you can't beat it.
