Hey I'm pretty new to this radio / scanner hobby , but for the more part I like it . I have a question I just purchased a baofeng uv5r+ & I want to know if I can transmit to local precincts & if I can listen into air traffic control on it ?
And there is the problem, you can't just program a radio and talk to them regardless of whom they are.Ok so the once again , I want to learn how to program the radio myself so I an transmit to my local authority regardless of whom they are..
You have 2 options to legally transmit with the UV-5R...Ok so the once again , I want to learn how to program the radio myself so I an transmit to my local authority regardless of whom they are I just want to learn , not let someone else do it for me , I'm authorized to have it so therefore It will not be a discrepancy with the law . I just want to know how to do it myself, so when I do get a better quality radio I already know the ropes .
Yes. They are programmable at home straight out of the box. Anywhere between 136 MHz to 175 MHz and 400 MHz to 520 MHz. But they can only legally transmit (in the USA) under the conditions that I explained above (you need to be a ham or covered by a part 90 license plus have a part 90 sticker).So basically you telling me that this radio can be programmed at home the way it straight out the box ? Because I know some people who have them & they are transmittable to a whole bunch of frequencies , that's the reason why I asked !
