For years the Baofeng UV-5R has been maligned as non-compliant with FCC regulations and a real spreader of spurious emissions. Further, it would easily transmit outside the ham bands. Radioddity has stepped in with the GT-5R which is basically a UV-5R but with a compliant RF section. Further, it now only transmits on the ham bands. And, best of all, it’s still available for only $27! See https://amzn.to/3lAhtyl (this URL helps support this channel) or at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08VNM1CX4 (same link but from Radioddity. Note the radio bears the Baofeng name though the project was headed by Radioddity. Also please note that the price went up to $30 today.
