Baofeng UV-3R: Expanded Frequencies - Versions

Based on everything I have read, if you have the original UV-3R, you might be able to access the expanded frequencies. It seems there are differences in the firmware, so some support it and others don't. If you have a Mark II, your chances are much better. It is hard to say if there are firmware versions in the Mark II that don't support it or if people aren't updating the .ini file correctly.

  1. I have successfully modded mine, listening in to the local medics (in Philly) all the way up on 506.685. I don't' know how to check the F/W version, but I do know mine is a MKII. I just got it a week ago, so its not even 1 week old. The box is different from a lot of pictures in that its not a glossy full color print, instead a boring matte finish in 2 or 3 color. I forget just what is says on it, I do not have it in front of me, but there was a sticker on the side that said MKII
