Uncle Trev Reveals Baofeng Radio Secrets

Watch out for deathy death vipers kids, and have fun out there.

This skit was approved by 3rd party sources before being published.

If I was going to blame anyone for this monstrocity – I’d probably look to them.

VK is a glorious place.

No Chinese or Japanese radios were harmed in the production of this catastrophy.

Will this be the video that sinks the channel? Is this the worst video ever produced in the name of ham radio? Probably.

Ben Lomond & Bowen Peak in Queenstown New Zealand

This time we head up and do a classic New Zealand day walk with an extra summit thrown in for good measure!

This is a longer format video – it is full of ranting as a result. I am.. sorry?

I stole a clip from this video without permission – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8hO2cNugCc – hopefully Adam finds it in his heart to forgive me. Once you’ve watched this, you can watch that video and see what video content that is actually good looks like.

Have a kick ass day my friends!
