UV-82 and UV-82X

This is the best radio to come from BaoFeng yet!

The UV-82 has upped the bar on affordable ham radio technology! Compared to previous BaoFeng products (UV-5R, GT-3, and UV-B Series) the UV-82 comes with a much louder speaker (1 watt), a much more solid case with larger buttons, and a new chipset and PCB board that outperforms the range, accuracy, and output of the previous BaoFeng chipsets. It is not simply a remake but a new radio from the ground up.


It outperforms the UV-5R chipset (used in UV-5R series), the 2nd Gen UV-5R chipset (used in the GT-3 and BF-F8+), and the UV-B chipset (used in the UV-B5 and UV-B6)

FAQ: UV-82 and the UV-82C DIFFERENCE

Answer: The UV-82C (Commercial) comes with special firmware that enable it to be completely FCC Part 90 (Commercial) Use Approved. The UV-82C allows the VFO mode to be disabled along with allowing synchronization of the upper and lower PTT buttons, the UV-82C also requires a PC Programming Cable prior to using - Read more about the UV-82C Here


FAQ: UV-82 and the UV-82X Difference

Answer: The X model variation replaces the 70 centimeter frequency band (400-520 MHz) with the 1.25 meter frequency band (220-260MHz) THe UV-82X is used more commonly for amateur (ham) radio use.

FAQ: UV-82 and UV-82L or UV-89 Difference

Answer: There is no difference besides a marketing gimmick other resellers use. The UV-82L is advertised as a UV-82 with a larger battery - but the truth is the battery is dishonestly labeled. It says 3000mha when in all reality it is still 1800mha battery (deception at its finest). We at BaoFeng Tech do not deceive you or mismarket to you and will make sure you are educated on your radio purchase - which is unlike the tactics of some overseas resellers of BaoFeng.


The Dual PUsh-To-Talk Difference

The UV-82 Series come with a dual push-to-talk button. The dual PTT is a huge leap forward in the HT technology. It allows you to transmit on two frequencies by the use of the rocker PTT switch. By pressing up you can transmit on "Frequency A" and by pushing down you can transmit on "Frequency B". Frequency A or B can also be used as a scanner of channels, frequencies, CTCSS and DTS tones.
