Yes, blind paranoia is so much better than rationally judging a situation case by case. How can you see real danger if you think EVERYTHING is a threat without reason?

Blind paranoia? Rights are taken a bit at a time, not all at once. By the time you know it, you'll have none. I'm sure you're just another GMO sheep "but my goberment wouldn't do that to us." kinda guy. Go put on a mask and GFY.

Exactly my point. You were forced to register for selective service at 18, for a social by 6, get a license for the PRIVILEGE to operate a machine (don't we have the right of "freedom of movement???), ask for permission to marry your partner, however your butthole clenches at the thought of a mask that actually serves a purpose (as long as you believe SCIENCE over paid puppet-pundits) ? You just proved my point about "How can you see real danger if you think EVERYTHING is a threat without reason?" Can't see the forest for the trees? Or in your case; can't see the herd for the sheep....

Hey, stupid. Yes, let's please recap. Not once did I mention the gov't banning these radios or anything. I simply stated "The moment you let your guard down like you just did, is when it happens." That was my first entry. Don't you feel completely retarded now? I feel bad for your family and children. Do everyone a favor and go hang yourself. Stop wasting my time.

Wait, so "don't let your guard down' from something that never happened? You weren't replying to a very specific comment / point? Yes, you are indeed "retarded" if this conversation, you picked sides on, confuses you.

I feel bad for your family and children but do not wish you to harm yourself. (I honestly doubt you could tie the knot anyway as I'm sure you're wearing velcro tennis shoes) Humorous the guy tilting at windmills is worried about 'wasting time.' Now go back to cowering in your corner or grow a pair....

^^^^^ Biggest shit stirrer on Gun Deals right here. These are those tolerant peace loving democrats that Nancy Pelosi the parrot always squawks about. He apparently likes gun cause he’s on the app but if his buddies got their way they would take our guns and replace with dildo like this guy

The BF-F8HP model is much better, mainly as it is 8w, and if you are in a SHTF moment, you will want the extra wattage. And if for mobile (4 wheel) mode, get an external antenna, like a magnetic roof mount to really add to your distance.

Great radios for the money, but I suggest the plain UV-5R over this "Plus" version. I own one of each. The UV-5R+ has a sleeker look, but is functionally identical to the original UV-5R (as long as they both have the same firmware). I purchased mine from Amazon in August 2013 and both had the latest 307 firmware. (The firmware cannot be upgraded on either model.)

The reason I suggest the original UV-5R over the UV-5R+ or UV-5RA, besides the better price, is that the original is compatible with the extended battery pack and the "AA" battery pack module. The other models are not. The only 5RA/5R+ "advantage" is shininess, which some would count as a disadvantage.

Be aware that this radio does have a learning curve, but it's not as bad as some say. There's a lot of good info out there. After reading reviews, I avoided the manual entirely and found a few youtube videos to pick up the basics. I'm a Ham n00b (currently training for a Technician license) but I was able to find info on my local repeaters and set them up manually. It's even easier to setup if you use a free app called CHIRP. You just look up the frequencies/offsets for your area and type them into a spreadsheet that can be uploaded to the device. (You will need to purchase the Baofeng USB cable separately, though.)

It is legal to use this as a receiver without a license, but you do need a license to transmit. It seems to me that you could use it to transmit on FRS/MURS frequencies without a license, but I'm far from an expert, so I may not be aware of all the requirements.

This is a great resource:

And this is an easy way to find your local repeaters as well as their current status:

Here is a far better manual than the one that comes with the radio.

I was wanting a good set of two ways for a SHTF scenario or for when I am in the mountains out on a trail to communicate with the wife and kids at the trail head. Would these be a good solution? I am not worried about the FCC license thing, not planning to use them enough for anyone to care. Just want a good radio that could "do more" than a normal cheap two way radio from WalMart in the SHTF and also have a better range than the cheapos.

FYI, this radio requires a Technician class license from the FCC to operate legally in the US and many other countries require a license also.

BINGO! that is what I have them for, just set them to the same frequency and you can talk, plenty of youtube vids how to do it, not going to use them on repeaters or anything else, person to person communication when you patrol your neighborhood in unlikely MAJOR SHTF, but it would be nice to use all features for a more likely natural disaster and get your ham license.

And 99% of those 99% will have no idea how to operate them. I know... I was one of that 99% you're talking about until a couple months ago.

These are virtually impossible to use / figure out how to use straight out of the box. You need to be familiar with input / output frequencies, PL, Offsets, repeaters, and more or else they're useless and impossible to properly configure. You also need to know all of that information for your **LOCAL** area, or you won't be communicating with anyone.

When SHTF ill just pull up some YouTube videos on my wireless connection and figure it out, brah!
