The UV-5R is a transceiver that has a scanning option. It is not a scanner of the type sold by Radio Shack, Bearcat or Uniden and so most of the functions found on these scanners WILL NOT be found in this LCR, but it will scan and with a little set up will satisfy many of the needs of the users of this unit. · EDIT: Last night I went back to dolyuk.альянсбетонгрупп.рф and ordered me a plain Baofeng UV-5R, with a speaker mic. I think that will solve all my programming problems, for now anyway. Someday I'll find the right software for my 5RA and then I'll have two radios that I can program. The Baofeng UV-5R is the basis for many other models. Any vendor that purchases a large quantity of radios can have a private label (and in some cases, firmware version) applied to the radio. There is, in most cases, almost no actual difference between the variants, which is very confusing for customers. Hacking UV5R Looking at the schematics, there are two main ICs on the radio. The first one is RDA which does all the radio communications, and the other is an EM78P microcontroller which controls the RDA, LCD, keypad, etc. The following steps are based on the Baofeng UV-5R V2+ model, but should apply to any UV-5R series Baofeng model. The other method to communicate with a radio is through a repeater.
Remember Me? Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 20 of And I left my computer and programming cable at home. How do I go about accessing a 2M repeater that is not already programmed into my HT??
Menu 25 and 26 change the settings. It is in the user guide but takes some finding.
Not to be done at 70mph I would have thought. And probably not even at Zero mph. Sounds terribly complicated. Much simpler! Been there, done that.
Thank you for your input. Back again! Today, just a few minutes before the rain got here, I finished putting up my new dual band vertical antenna.
If I do, the charger shuts down. So how do I power that up, while in the house. Well, I solved that with a little computer power supply PSU. I just jumpered the 12vdc output of the supply to the lighter plug on the battery eliminator. It worked great and the battery eliminator did not get HOT like it did when I used it in my car. I was giving it 12v instead of the It has to drop the input voltage down to about 8.
I was afraid that I might have some AC hum, but several contacts told me that I was nice and clear and full quieting into the local repeater, which is actually about miles away. Not bad with a little 4W HT. Cheers mates! The greater the difference in input to output Voltage for Voltage regulators, the greater the heat they generate Feed one with 30V and take 6V off it and they do get hot!
Where do you get that?
Certainly not in a car! Well, not in my car anyway. I have a little mobile power supply that I built years ago, for my Yeasu HT. I used it to provide a fully regulated 12vdc to my radio. I think I can revamp it to provide a regulated 10vdc to my battery eliminator.
Is this any good for you it is on Ebay. Good find! New Problem! I use my computer and "Chirp" for programming my little HT.
That works great for the 2M repeaters, but That was with the 5RA, not the 5R. I even tried the program that came with the programming cable and it gives me the same error message. What am I missing? I have just had a go at this in the Baofeng software. I did this a lot when I first tried programing the radio.
I used up a whole swear word book before I managed to remember. Thank you, for your response. Not this time anyway.
So the radio itself is not entering into the equation. Something in the software is preventing me from making the changes to the UHF channels. Hi, You could try new software. Thanks a Million!
I did exactly what you suggested With all the abbreviations though, in the column headers I feel like a novice again. Obviously, the version I downloaded was NOT the correct one. I just found another fly in the ointment today. When looking to download new programming software, I noticed a message in RED, stating that the software they were offering for the 5R, would not work for the 5RA, as it requires different software.
I have the 5RA, different radio and requires a different programming software.
And save the 5RA for just 2M use only. Like, keep it in the car for chit chat and emergency use only. And thanks for all your help. I think that will solve all my programming problems, for now anyway. One for my car and one for my house. Try this website it said software for the 5RA. It says they are out of range.
I was a little bit leary when I first got the radio. The battery was in the radio instead of in a plastic bag and the radio already had a bunch of frequencies programmed int.
It sort of looked like someone had already had it once, and returned it. Thanks for all your help!!! I really do appreciate all the effort. Update: Well, the 5R arrived today, and using Chirp I was able to program in all the local repeaters, both 2M and mhz. Success at last!
I have it!!! Tonight, I downloaded a new driver and new Baofeng software, supposedly for the 5RA. I reset it to the MHz band. Still no joy! Now I have two great little radios, one for my car and one for the Base.
And I can program both with the Chirp software. Glad you got it ironed out! Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page:.
