New: Baofeng UV-5R
There where rumours about a whole new Baofeng radio.
This radio, the Baofeng UV-5R is an Dual-band radio and it has a keypad.
This Baofeng radio is similar to the TH-F8 from the TYT Brand.
But it are no rumours any more, The Baofeng UV-5R is a fact! This radio is much larger then the UV-3R and has a keypad. The first online shop I found, where you can buy the UV-5R is the taobao.com shop.
I mentioned this at the Brick O’Lore website and soon someone wrote that the 409shop the new Baofeng has included in the collection.
