15 February, 2020 - Reading time: 2 minutes

New to ham radio and want to know what is the cheapest you can buy? The Baofeng UV-5R handheld is a good option for those eager to get onto the air quickly! The UV-5R is less than $30 and is the most popular Baofeng in their range of radios.

In this video I show what comes in the box and the reasons why this can be your first handheld to get on the ham bands with! I also do an on air test to show the transmission and reception of the radio.
