Hey guys!

I have some leftover handheld ham radios and antennas from Winter Fun Fest. If anyone wants one let me know. Thought I would check in with you guys first before I open them up to general public.

 

Radio (40$) (5 left)

Baofeng UV5R. Comes pre-programmed with NorCal repeaters and general use frequencies. You also get a reference booklet that you can store in your glove box. You cannot transmit on a majority of the included frequencies without a Ham or GMRS license, but there are MURS and FRS frequencies included on it, which are open use for general public.

 

Magnetic Mount Antenna (20$) (3 left)

Plug N Play to the UV5R handheld radios (SMA-F). They work on VHF and UHF. These are great to put out on the hood of your jeep while on the trail. Because it is a smaller mag mount, I don't recommend driving down the freeway at 60mph with it on the outside of your vehicle. Better to put it on while you are airing down, and take it off while airing up at the end of the day. Just run the line through a window or door. The benefit to this is it a) helps amplify your effective signal and power and b) gets your antenna to the outside of your vehicle while you are driving. This way the radio signal doesn't end up losing effectiveness trying to get out of the vehicle in the first place.

 

Hi Gain Handheld Rubber Duck Antenna (10$) (14 left)

15" antenna that is Plug N Play to the UV5R radios (SMA-F). It essentially helps amplify your effective power. Works great while hiking around. Since it is so long, it generally doesn't work well inside vehicles if you are going for distance because the antenna hits the roof and bends over while you are using it.

 

Shoot me a text, PM, respond on here if you want any of these, and I will bring them to a meeting.
