    We have just received our first batch of Baofeng UV-82X dual band transceivers
    They cover 136 to 174 and 220 to 269 MHz
    I have produced a short video showing this new model transceiver

    This is a full feature dual band rig and puts out a full 5W on 220 as well as having the correct resonant antenna for 144/220

    Best 73s

    Had to stop watching the video after the statement, "Very high gain" for an antenna rated at -2 to -3 db - at best. (grin)

    Wouxun has had a 2M and 220 HT out for a couple years - how does this rig stand up to it?

    -2 to -3 dB? I want one! When measuring these kind of antennas I generally end up at -6dBd or worse. You can make it look better by using dBi instead though.

    Ugh Oh

    I hope this is not the ' Notorious Martyn ' from years past... If so, caveat emptor.......

    They also show, at Radiomart, a tri-band version Bao Feng that is 4 watts out on 144/222/440. Anyone see that one in the ads on RadioMart's page?
    Better yet, has anyone actually BOUGHT one and have an opinion of it?

    I had the Wouxun 2/220 ht and it was OK. Typical "cheap" feel, though. I purchased a 2/220 Baofeng UV-5R at a hamfest a couple of months ago and was surprised at the feel of it. It felt more like a Yaesu than a cheap Chinese radio. Programming the UV-5R from the keypad is very simple. I purchased a number of 2/220 UV-5R's from Amazon and two from Martyn when they were "discontinued". I gave them out to friends. I'm glad to see that there is another 2/220 model with the UV-82x.

    I had to stop watching the video because it was out of focus.

    I wonder if I will get harassing emails for saying that.

    I have one of the Radiomart UV5R's he sold at Dayton this year for 2M/222. Works great.

    The only thing weird about the UV-82, which kinda made me decide on something else, was the two-way PTT switch. Not sure that is necessarily a good thing.
