    Very few people complain about Yaesu, Icom, or Kenwood HTs. I bought a couple Baofengs at first, but the Yaesus I have far outshine the Baofengs in all measurable ways. My suggestion, if anyone cares, is to save your money and buy something decent. You can get an FT70 for $150 and have far more capability than any Baofeng. And no one needs a 15 watt HT.

    The Baofeng UV-9R is spec'd to output 5 watts maximum. The Baofeng UV-9R Plus is spec'd to output 8 watts maximum. My personal testing of the Baofeng UV-9R Plus shows its maximum power output at about 7.2 watts.

    Their sale will not be prohibited, but the sellers will not be permitted to claim that the radios meet Part 95 (or any other Part) standards if they are not FCC certificated (formerly "type accepted") for the same.

    I have never seen a Baofeng Output what they are rated at.

    Seems that the rating is input power not output power.

    I have bought 5 different models just for testing.Very few people really test them. I do Just for Grins. :D

    They make nice play toys with a fancy alarm to play with a repeater and a bright flashlight.

    I doubt that. It's more likely a combination of marketing lies and poor quality control.

    Could be.

    I bought a 50 Watt UV-5001 radio that was putting out 60 Watts on UHF.

    It did not last very long. :( Twice...
