The Most Powerful One Yet: BaoFeng BF-F8HP (High Power).

The BF-F8HP is the most powerful BaoFeng capable of transmitting 8 watts! A PC03 FTDI Programming Cable is Recommended for Easier PC Programming

The BF-F8HP is the third and final generation of the UV-5R. Some new features found in the BF-F8HP are the three selectable power levels (Low – 1w, Med – 4/5w, High-7/8w); the BF-F8HP has a better high-gain antenna (7″) that was not available in earlier models; the BF-F8HP also brings back the customizable tri-color display that was not found in second generation UV-5Rs. The BF-F8HP also comes with a Full IN-DEPTH 76 Page User Manual that will help you get aquatinted with all the New Features!

Much like its little brothers (the BF-F8+ and the UV-5R) the BF-F8HP maintains full cross accessory compatibility with all previous UV-5R accessories.

Make sure that the programming cord for this radio is included, or purchase one separately. Download one of the free radio…

I have *several* versions of the Baofeng HTs – this is the…

    Perfect Experiment I’m a brand new ham. I wanted to get a radio that was just barely good enough without spending too much money. After lots of research, I rejected the UVR5, despite a just about perfect price. Too many indications of issues.

I finally arrived at this radio, very small & inexpensive, like the UVR5, but a little more power, a little more…
