Baofeng UV-5TPR radio is a so-called dual band, which means a radio that operates in two bands - VHF and UHF. However, dual band is not the only thing that this device has to offer. Baofeng UV-5RTP’s model many other elements have been doubled making it a truly universal device for radio communication over air as well as land and sea.
One of the most innovative functions available in Baofeng UV-5RTP is a dual work mode of the transmit-receive system and the display, which allows to operate in a specified band in two different frequencies (transmit/playback in main frequency + playback in auxiliary frequency) using a dedicated button for switching the main frequency. Baofeng UV-5RTP features a wide array of functions that simplify identification and grouping (R-DCS, R-CTS, T-DCS, T-CTS, DTMFST; ANI), usage (transmit lock on an occupied channel, voice confirmation of task execution, voice-activated transmission, manual keyboard lock, battery-saving mode) and programming (programming with a computer via RS or USB).
Baofeng UV-5RTP radio is an upgrade compared to previous models. The most important change is the addition of 8 W of transmitting power, which makes this radio a universal and reliable tool for communication. The battery has a capacity of 1800 mAh. Another important change, affecting the usage of UV-5RTP, is the casing reinforcement.
Functions improving the security (SOS) and the usability (FM 76-108 MHz radio, flashlight) are also available. In Baofeng UV-5RTP majority of functions have assigned specific hotkeys, which eliminates the need to progress through a multi-level menu each and every time. The illuminated LCD display apart from alphanumeric signs shows also icons that inform about the status of the majority of inbuilt functions. Baofeng UV-5RTP can easily fit inside the User’s hand and ergonomically placed keys allow for the operation with just one hand. The model’s casing was made of a thick layer of hard polymer, which significantly raises its mechanical resistance. The radio is also resistant to harsh weather conditions. It can operate in temperatures ranging from -20*C up to +60*C. Baofeng UV-5RTP is a radio with a broad array of features and a durable, reliable construction.
