Vero Telecom UV-5E: Update - 520MHz

I got an e-mail from Vero Telecom regarding the UV-E5 Mark II. At first, I thought it was just a repeat of a previous e-mail, but showing the UV-5E in the usual color varieties. However, I quickly realized they were pointing out the range up to 520MHz. The note on the side also says "You Can Control The TX and RX Frequency Range By Yourself Via Software. The Vero Telecom website does not seem to have been updated yet with the new information.


  1. 409Shop sells the Baofeng UV-5RUU $46.80

    NEW BAOFENG UV-5R UU Dual Band 136-174/400-520Mhz Radio


  2. Hi Brick, I own one of the first UV5Rs, S/N 201201R00091, BFB230, 1201002, VER 04. By using the BAOFENG software V12.03.04, downloaded from 409SHOP, I can change the bandlimits for both VHF and UHF, as well as program both lines of the power on message.

    Cheers, Jaap

    PS I vaguely recall you have the same version UV5R as I do?
