Baofeng UV-B5

I received the Baofeng HT I ordered from China, and I think I like it

A while ago, just so I had an HT, I ordered (through eBay):

For a grand total of C$48.19. I love China - if you have patience, they’ll send you anything and call you a friend for life :-)

The verdict so far: it seems to be a solid little device, Chirp has no problems programming it, so I think it’s a steal.

Also, I picked up a 75W inverter at a gas station meaning I can charge the little thing in my car and thus always have emergency VHF/UHF available.
