Default Baofeng uv 5r PTT ID

Before I commit to buying, quick question? Does this have the ability to transmit a radio id number? Or a PTT ID NUMBER?

Question Cheap probably doesn't

I don't think it does but not certain. Does have stupid roger beeps that can be turned off thank goodness. But every radio does have it's own "fingerprint" when a transmission occurs.

Default Baofeng UV-5R transmitted ID

Menu item 15 is ANI (automatic number identification) which can only be set via software, not from the front of the radio. I checked it on my radio and indeed it can not be changed from the keypad. My unit was shipped with ID 80808 installed.

The Baofeng uses DTMF as its ANI. It only sends 0-9 and a-d as dtmf tones. The only alphanumeric radios are the Puxing px-888k and the tyt dualband radio which uses MSK that is different from MDC1200

I'll also add that the Baofeng sends the DTMF ID so painfully slow that it will probably screw up any repeaters you try to use it on that are controlled by DTMF. Not to mention, annoy everyone else.
