    The repeater filters out that garbage anyway. :p

    QST test results were the same.... Baofeng is a dirty radio.

    You mean, the particular radio they tested?

    I'm getting a different story here:

    https://mikebeach.org/2015/11/16/arrl-baofeng-testing-revisited/

    This is what the author says: " but testing at the informal environment of a convention could lead to simple mistakes in the test setup. "

    and

    "It’s also important to note that the ARRL clearly mentions in their article that this testing was performed on used equipment, not newly-manufactured units "

    So, dirty Baofeng, or dirty ARRL or a bamboozled public/ham community? Who is pulling the 'fast one' here? Seems many folks are unaware of some specifics on this issue ...

    Their test configuration looks suspect at the convention looks suspect too. No HP filter used ...
