How To Talk Farther And Get More Power From A Baofeng UV-5R

In this video I show how to make sure you are getting the most power and wattage out of your Baofeng UV-5R and how to transmit as far as possible through the use of settings on the radio, using the correct antenna and by using a counterpoise.

We have been able to transmit as far as 13 miles between UV-5R walkie-talkie’s in excellent conditions and transmitting even farther is possible. Using a repeater, either HAM or GMRS can easily extend the range of your Baofeng to hundreds of miles – however bear in mind that in the United States the FCC does not permit transmitting on GMRS frequencies or repeaters while using a Baofeng UV-5R as it is not Part 95E “Type Accepted” for GMRS use.
