More on programming the Baofeng UV-5RA

After seeing my post about the fun and games with the UV-5RA yesterday, Steve G1KQH kindly dropped me a note to say that there are two versions of the UV-5 software. One of these can be used with the UV-5R and one which may be used with the newer models.

These may both be downloaded from the Sinotel site, along with many other utilities

Thanks, Steve!

    Great link, thank you for sharing that. I get a lot of hits on my radio site on that search term, so now I know where to send them. Should I link the traffic here, or just send them to the Sinotel site.
    Tnx es 73 de W7DTG Don
