Our sqn is currently researching new radios as our Motorola’s are more than past their best.
Someone recommended the Baofeng range due to their extensive options and cheap price £26.
I purchased a Baofeng Bf-f8+ (similar to UV-5r) for myself to test the radio. I must say the quality of the construction for a radio that costs £26 is rather good and if anything goes wrong its cheaper to buy a new unit rather than replace old ones. I am in the programming stages at the present moment.
Does the ACO require any other settings other than the Rx and Tx for the UHF and VHF (obviously excluding the project channels V10 & U10).
