About two years ago a good friend of mine got into ham radio. After being off the air for about ten years, it was my pleasure to become his "Elmer." To my surprise the Baofeng UV-5R radio which he purchased for only forty-dollars turned out to be a pretty good radio. And that was the beginning of my experience programming a Baofeng radio.

I purchased the cheap programming cable and installed Chirp and its driver on my computer and had limited success because of the driver problems. But, the one thing I did learn was that the Baofeng UV-5R hand-held radio was a very good investment. I now have a couple of my own as well as the twenty-dollar programming cable. This page is here to assist amateur operators who have also invested in a Baofeng radio.

Be sure to use the cable that costs around $20. Cheaper cables never seem to satisfy like the more expensive ones do.
