HAM HT Baofeng UV-5R

From HacDC Wiki

Overview

The UV-5R family of radios are cheap 4W micro handheld transceivers with reasonably good stock features especially given the price. They can be modified to bypass the on board MCU, which is a write once chip that cannot be modified. The UV-5Rs are software controlled radios (not SDRs) they have hardware filters that prevent the same kinds of band expansion as the UV-3Rs.
