The baofeng radios are not that easy to use.
The Baofeng UV-5R and BF-F8 line of radios are a marvelous feat of technology coming out of China. They can also be very confusing to use. I receive at least several letters a day (yes, actual letters) asking how to program them, or work through the different menu items. Although they are quite capable for ham radio use, they are not very user friendly until you familiarize yourself with the little quirks that come with the radio.
Granted, the Baofeng radios are not made particularly for ham radio use, so they are not going to be as easy to program for ham radio use.
