“Why I received UV-5G instead of UV-5X as I ordered?”
Many customers used to be confused by UV-5X (GMRS version) and UV-5X (U/V version). So BAOFENG changes UV-5X to UV-5G and re-certified the FCC ID as 2AJGM-UV5G. In essence, now UV-5X and UV-5G are both the latest upgraded version of the inventory, with the same hardware and software configuration.
ATTENTION! LICENSE NEEDED
- As a GMRS radio, UV-5X requires a license from the FCC to operate.
- This license requires no testing, just fill in the application and pay the fee.
TIP! WHERE TO FIND REPEATER INFO
Repeater info can be found on MYGMRS website (or its APP), it provides a decent list of repeaters.
When used with a GMRS Repeater, the talking range of UV-5X is greatly increased.
Why choose UV-5X (UV-5G)?
The UV-5X is a LEGAL GMRS handheld radio. This radio extends all the functions from UV-5R, but transmits only on the GMRS channels. It adds NOAA Weather Alert. The UV-5X offers GMRS performance as another addition to the familiar UV-5R series of radios. A true GMRS radio that will be a useful companion in your outdoor activities.
FCC Certificated: Part 95E & Part 15B
FCC ID: 2AJGM-P51UV
Please kindly know that UV-5X is an FCC Certificated model ( FCC Certification downloadable below). On UV band you can only receive but not transmit — this meets the requirements of FCC.
Why choose GMRS over FRS?
- GMRS repeater capable. The UV-5X can take advantage of GMRS repeaters to get a more powerful, further-ranging signal. — This is not an option with FRS radios.
- GMRS radios allow Wide-band FM to provide a louder and clearer signal than the FRS radios restricted to Narrow-band FM with a lower power rating.
- The UV-5X provides more selectable channels than FRS radios, more CTCSS and DCS tone options to reduce unwanted signals.
NOAA Weather Alert
UV-5X can automatically scan 11 NOAA weather channels. 24/7 stand by and update severe weather, sending instant alerts and wake you up from sleep when the cell phone is turned off.
An Ideal companion for road trips, hunting, backpacking, security guard, and other outdoor activities.
