As you  can see am having  problems  with  the  5w baofeng,  as anyone  tried the  leixen 898 does it  come with  a data  cable in the  box or is that  a extra, i noticed a radio  on  eBay  25w,  obviously  only  10w allowed are people  using  this on high  power, whats the  opinion  on these small  radios..

Hi Chris,

Gave up on that Baofeng pretty quick didn't you? Wink

If you get a Leixan, you'll also have to program it.....

....same with a Retevis, Wouxun, Yeasu, Icom, etc. etc.

After all, the radio doesn't know where you live or what repeaters you want to hit. Very Happy

Some sellers will offer you a radio pre-programmed but they'll usually charge extra and you have to let them know what you want it programmed for in the first place. I have seen radios apparently programmed with every UK repeater but then you're storing loads of repeaters you'll never use and have to scroll past them all, (or remember what channel your repeater is on!)


Did you check out that Miklor site I mentioned?
It did help me out a lot, plus a bit of dedicated time playing with the radio until I got it right. Some things are worth persevering with Wink

No worries Chris.
I'm always 'window shopping' but luckily the wife controls the purse strings! Very Happy
(Was quite impressed with the Retevis R95.)

Be careful when you put that antenna up mate, there's a reason we had that ladder nonsense on the Foundation training Wink
