So tonight I was able to speak to some people on the Inter-mountain Inter-tie (147.12Mhz) from my QTH.
I was listening to KG7ZZM and KE5WQY talking about Baofeng radios and the difficulties of programming them.
I had the opportunity to talk with them and share some of the information I have on these Chinese radios.
here are a copy of the pdfs that helped me to understand the Baofeng and program it better.
annotated Baofeng manual by KC9HI.pdf
I hope this helps them and any one else that needs to understand the baofeng uv-5r
