BaofengTech: BF-F8HP and UV-82C

So I am a bad, bad blogger... the very kind folks at BaofengTech sent me a BF-F8HP and two UV-82 models (including one in camo) radios to test. That was before Christmas. I did an unboxing post, but have only used the radios sparingly.

I don't have a bench (much less all the technical knowledge) like Hans, but I did want to do some subjective testing: How do they sound? Can I tell any difference with the extra power? How's battery life? What's my impression of the selectivity? Etc.

So this is post is my kick in the rear end to get going on this again. In addition to any information you might get from my posts, there is another reason to encourage me to get to work... BaofengTech has been generous enough to allow me to give the radios away when I finish my testing. (And yes, I'm sneaking this juicy bit here at the end of the post to see if anyone is paying attention.) Details coming as I do the testing!

Baofeng BF-F8HP and UV-82C: Via BaofengTech

I posted about the Cyber Monday deals at BaofengTech, but I have more good news from them. Christmas has come early as I received a BF-F8HP (15% off today!) and a UV-82C from BaofengTech over the week-end. I've not even opened the boxes yet, but this is good news for me and for you, so stay tuned!

Baofeng UV-82C

Baofeng UV-82C where "C" equals commercial. Miklor has a full review here.

Highlights include being able to prevent field programming (and thus fully FCC compliant and the dual PTT can be set to a single PTT mode.
