I received this ht yesterday and set it up for some local repeaters. So far I have made a short range uhf contact, and checked in to tonight's ARES net on 2 meters. That repeater is about 15 miles away. I did replace the stock antenna with a longer one, using an sma/bnc adapter (also from brushbeater).
Fast shipping and got exactly what I ordered. Happy to patronize a good small business, and will be the first place I look if I need anything else. Thank you!
Matt, What an awesome radio overall, easy to use functions as well and thanks to your well written guide to boot!
I like it, so far its working great!! With the same Baofeng reliability but with increased output power, the adjustable High / Med / Low Power Settings, and improved antenna its an outstanding radio to own. Over time you see claims with new releases/Generations of a lot products being “New and Improved” but in the end all they are is New and lacking in Improved, not so with the Baofeng BF-F8HP it is an improvement!!
As a side note the radio is pictured with the larger/extended battery but also comes with a standard/regular capacity battery of 2100mAh.
I have both the cammo cover and the spiral bound for "hip pocket training" . I am slowly working through them and working with my radios. and frankly the only way this spiral bound one could be any better is to make it on "write in the rain" paper. yup that's why 4 stars and not 5. not sure how much that would be but if you had to double the price it would still be a hell of a deal...
