SOURCE: on a baofeng uv-5ra. how do i change freqs. on channell mode? frequency mode works fine but it won't let me change the freqs. in channell mode. thanks.

You have to be in "VFO" mode. Your best bet on that extremely difficult to use radio, is to get "chirp" and the proper cable and program it via a computer. If you search on-line for "baofeng programming" you may find an alternate set of instructions. Your absolute best bet: throw that PoS away and get a Yaesu FT-60.

Testimonial: "first of all your wrong. second, it's NOT a pos. i have 4 of them and they all work great. it's just the last 2 i bought were uv-5ra and not uv-5r. i got the problem solved using the baofeng programming software. the chirp software, in my opinion, is a pos. it is a very easy radio to use. i have looked into other radios, and for the money, and now for the radio's quality, i would recommend the baofeng to anyone."

Radio locked cant adjust

Can you hit
MENU (opens the menu)
24 and MENU (opens menu item 24, Auto-lock)
0 and MENU (sets auto-lock off and confirms)
EXIT


Auto-Lock locks up the keyboard to prevent accidental frequency changes. It allows for transmission with the PTT.

Baofeng uv=5ra and uv-5re

One has the band limits set for the Americas, the other Europe. Thus the "a" and "e" in the model numbers.
