Hi all, hope you're all well. 
Can anyone please tell me how to manually unlock/expand the frequencies on the baofeng UV-5RC PLUS to receive /use the PMR frequencies?
EG:-  What buttons to press and in what sequence. Or point me to a link that explains it. 
Cheers and thanks in advance.

Hi Glen dog. 
Perhaps you can give me a link please as I have looked on there with not much luck. 
There's plenty about how to program in the frequencies, memories and set repeater offsets ect, but I'm struggling to find one on expanding the frequencies. I don't have Internet here at home hence wanting to do it manually, otherwise I could have done it via chirp. 

Cheers

Hi Dale,

When I was first playing with my Intek, (same as the UV5), I scoured the internet for a way of manually unlocking the frequency range......unfortunately I found nothing(!)

In the end I had to program it via chirp.
That wasn't so straight forward either and played with several different USB leads until I landed up building my own using a CP2102 USB module....so much for easy Wink

So frustratingly I know, I don't think you can do it manually only via software.

Not much help I'm afraid, but might save you the days of banging your head fruitlessly searching the internet like I did.


All the best,
Victor

Hi Nubster. 
My Baofeng only goes up to 440 mhz. when I try to key in a pmr frequency ie 446.093 it beeps error and goes back to the previous one.
I've seen the UV-5RC being used on pmr so I thought I'd try it. I don't have Internet access at home otherwise I'd happily try chirp. 
I'm wanting it for outdoors. On my CRT Micron I watched a video by Simon the wizard  on how to expand it, pree a few buttons, turn it off/on and away you go. I thought that maybe I could do the same on the Baofeng. 
Hope you can help. 
Cheers

OK thanks anyway mate. Yes, I think it's as is from the factory. I haven't done anything with it. 
Cheers.

Glad he got some help, thought he would find chirp via you tube, glad he got some help, and well said, take care with the radio, my Baofengs had shop watch kind of service on them for Finland, only PMR now.

It is quite easy to program in the PMR frequencies on the uv5R but remember to delete the frequency that is on the radio first. Explained on Utube.
Hope that helps.
16 PMR frequencies available online.
