Radioddity has partnered with Baofeng to create the model UV-5RX3 ham radio handheld, available via Amazon at https://amzn.to/2Cw5dew, covering the 2-meter (144-148 MHz), 1.25-meter (222-225 MHz), and the 70-centimeter (420-450 MHz) bands. The addition of the 1.25-meter band is the exciting feature for this US$49.99 model–the band is underused and equipment is hard to find. This is Part 1 of 2.
