Actually, the FCC ban was on a specific model and solely based on the reseller's marketing materials.

Jim, thanks for sharing this important but often unpopular information.

  • It's worth adding that it's their dirty _transmit_ performance that causes them to be banned by the FCC, and these European agencies.
  • Their _receive_ performance is similarly unclean and subject to desense (blocking) and IMD (intermodulation distortion), but that affects only the individual user so it's not subject to regulation.

That said, when the unfiltered front end is not being overloaded by the RF around it the Baofeng has good sensitivity and sounds okay on receive. And on transmit most of the time the unfiltered output garbage is not noticeable (by the person using it)—so it's a great radio for the price, and one that you don't need to worry about if you lose it.

[And I've heard that if you take a chance and go ahead and get one of those government-approved radios pushed by the likes of Kenwood, Yaesu, Icom, or Motorola, your friends might notice certain unexpected changes in your radio behavior…such as hearing and talking to people that they they don't…]

So carry on all y'all, and 73.

Oh - the "Kobe" option (a not-so-subtle reference to the massive diamond Kobe Bryant bought his wife after his affairs were revealed).
