Baofeng UV-82 Review
I decided to pick up the new Baofeng model, the UV-82. I gotta say, this is a big step up in quality from the UV-5R. The basic functions are the same but this also has a dual PTT (CHP style), full 5 watts, a much improved antenna and dual TX/RX LEDs.
The thing I'm most impressed with is the build quality. It's on par with many of the brand name HT's out there. The receive sensitivity isn't quite as good as many of them but it is still a very functional radio as a whole. You really can't beat them for $48.
