“Today we talk about the Baofeng RD-5R Dual Band DMR HT. I found it to be a decent radio, but lacking the features that we have seen in several other Dual Band DMR HTs.”
- 【TDMA-Based Dual Mode】- With VHF/UHF coverage of 136-174 and 400-470 MHz, the RD-5R includes two amateur bands, 2m and 70cm. It is a true dual time-slot DMR, Tier I & II, compatible with Motorola and other DMR radios.
- 【Multi-Function】-The RD-5R offers scanning of analog and digital channels, manual programming, VFO mode, digital monitor mode, FM radio, 1024 channels, CTCSS and CDCSS, color codes and DMR encryption. The RD-5R has additional A/B, VFO/MR and BAND keys, which makes the radio easy to operate.
- 【The Classic 5R Series】With the classic design of the 5R series, the RD-5R’s compact design fits in your pocket and shares almost all the accessories with other Baofeng radios except for the programming cable. 🔊 Most 5R series accessories work with our RD-5R DMR version.
- 【Continuous Upgrade on CPS & Firmware】CPS supports mass editing on channels and contact IDs, importing and exporting them with CSV format, which makes it easier to write codeplugs. Customer can also get upgraded version of CPS from Radioddity. 🔊 The RD-5R DMR is FCC certified and has a 12-Month Manufacturer Warranty for carefree use.
