Post Baofeng handheld radio recommendation?
Which radio do you guys recommend? Looking to use it for a 2nd radio and hiking. There are a bunch of different versions. Who's got one and why?

the UV 5R seems to be the most popular. You can get kits that include hands free, CHIRP cable, better antenna. There is also a mag mount available to put on the hood.

Remember, you get what you pay for. I bought a couple of the UV-5R radios, just to have spares. They are cheap. If you buy the programming cable, use Chirp to program and modify them, they are worth the money. For what we want on the trail, they are perfect. Seem loud, fairly sensitive and well built. Again, cheap and disposable if necessary.
