As told many times before there cannot be anybody who has not either seen or used the Baofeng UV-5R and now it is back with a new version, the UV-6R from the name Pofung. The bands are 136-174 and 400-520MHZ and have seen them for as little as €36 plus shipping within the EU market place.
5 watts power, 6.25KHz step for those who want to run the radio on the PMR 446 channels and for those in Germany it is also working well with the 149MHz Freenet channels and has the step needed to make those frequencies work. The supplied battery is a 7.4v and 1800MaH depending where you purchase it as some do sell it with an OEM battery at a lower price and sadly these have lower longevity in usage.
