We were given a Baofeng UV-5R for Christmas by my sister and brother-in-law. I’ve read about them in passing, but had yet to do any research on them. Between a cell phone, CB, and inReach, I felt we had a solid grouping of options when it came to our communications options. At a minimum, this little device adds FRS, GMRS, and HAM capabilities, and it would appear even more useful than that. Look for a more in-depth future article as we learn more!
