This time I am unboxing and reviewing this cool multiband hand radio from BaoFeng.
Me personally I love these sorts of radios. I used to be in a CB Radio club for years. Its always been a fun way to communicate with others in a unique way. The good things about these sorts of radios is the fact that even if there is a power outage, cellphones are out, tv is out, these radios will always be running and you will always be able to communicate with others.
With all these storms, these radios can be life or death. A way to scan and monitor weather frequencies, scan police and emergency channels and more. Thats is a very good thing in an emergency when storms can interfere with cellphones and power can knock out home phones and appliances. These radios will keep on going and for that its great to have them in each home and easily contact family and friends.
These radio is upper and lower bands, high frequencies to scan, flashlight for emergencies, radio to listen to if power is out and other great features. The battery life is about 12 hours and comes with a charging dock to charge it up fast and easy.
Though u dont need a license to monitor or listen to any frequency you do need a license to talk on certain frequencies so you must know what you are doing. This isnt a basic walkie talkie that u can grab and start chatting it up. These radios are for more serious users, again... great for emergencies, work, camping and more.
This radio is prices at a decent price, comes with battery and charging dock, headset and clip. The only thing this radio lacks is good instructions. The booklet it comes with doesnt really show u much and can be confusing for beginners.
Upgradeable antenna, good features, lots of frequencies, good quality, clear LCD screen make it a fun radio to own, check it out on amazon for yourself and get it if you have a family, its a must for every home.
