Where to buy the Baofeng UV-5re
The baofeng UV-5RE line of radio's are dual band HT's that come with either 2M/220 or 2M/440. If you fo a Google search you will find MILLIONS of hits for those little radios. Their is a reason for that. They are very inexpensive, some places offering them for under $40.00 dollars now, like at Amazon. If you go to Amazon.com and do a similar search you will gets hundreds of hits for the baofeng UV-5RE line of radio's. Baofeng also has other models of radios but the UV-5R series seems to be the most popular so far. The major differences between all the UV-5R radio's is the software it would seem. Another thing to consider when ordering your Baofeng UV-5RE radio is the warranty that comes with it. Even though the radios are not a big investment, you still would like to know that if for some reason it breaks the first week you get it, you will be able to return it. I don't think the warranty covers melting it down in a microwave at all though.
