For many years, the Baofeng UV-5R is very popular among ham radio enthusiasts as it is a dual band radio (2m/70cm) with tons of options at an almost unbelievable affordable price. This has made the UV-5R a perfect choice for amateur radio newcomers as well as a must-have for long time hobbyists.
This is the goal we have never changed: to design the entry level radio everyone can afford and everyone should have.
In midsummer 2018, there are two new shining stars going to join the 5R series. We are gladly to announce today the release of the Baofeng UV-5RX3 and UV-5R EX.
First and foremost, the Baofeng UV-5RX3 is a tri-band radio which focused specifically on the amateur band frequencies of the 1.25M band during design, supporting both wide and narrowband with 2.5 kHz steps. With the classic 5R Plus design, it is compatible with all the accessories of 5R series, such as programming cable, speaker, earpiece, 3800mAh battery, etc.
