Baofeng UV 5R
Dual band VHF-UHF transceiver
What can I say about this walkie. It is the cheapest and gets the job done. For its price, you cannot ask from it the best performance on a spectrum analyser, but for portable operations, it is very handy to be in contact with your fellows at home through the repeater, announce your activation frequencies, and so on. The colours of the batteries and screen frames can be interchanged too!
