From the manufacturer
High Output Up to 8 Watt UV-82RT
The UV-82RT is the second generation of the classic UV-82 Series. Some new features found in the UV-82RT are the three selectable power levels (Low – 1 watt, Medium – 5 watt, High- 7/8 watt ) allowing for a high-output of up to eight watts.
What Makes it Unique?
It has 3 Power Levels (1, 5, 7/8 watt).
VFO/ MR (Frequency Mode) can be locked via software.
The Dual Push-to-Talk Switch can be synchronized via software to simplify operation of the radio.

BFTECH UV-82RT Additional Highlights and Features
Dual or Single Push-to-Talk Selectable
The UV-82 Series come with a dual push-to-talk button. The dual PTT allows you to transmit on two frequencies by the use of the rocker push-to-talk switch. By pressing ‘up’ you can transmit on ‘Frequency A’ and by pushing down you can transmit on ‘Frequency B’.
Frequency A or B can also be used as a scanner of channels, frequencies, CTCSS and DTS tones.
Note: The BFTECH UV-82RT allows you to synchronize the PTT button to re-enable a single Push-to-Talk switch. This simplifies the use for those who require only one frequency to talk on.

The UV-82RT is a major update to the previous UV-82 model with firmware, hardware, and even packing upgrades.
There are a variety of BFTECH models in existence, but generally no differences exist. Some models are even re-manufactured units.
No matter the model number BaoFeng radios are based on one of these chipsets.
The UV-82RT is a upgrade from the UV-82 and UV-5R series with the addition of features, power levels, and the updated chipset revision that supports the High Power.
The UV-82RT also includes: External Accessory Compatibility, FM Radio, Flashlight, Emergency Alarm.
The UV-82RT has one built-in receiver but can ‘watch’ two channels/frequencies (semi duplex). The UV-82RT will monitor both frequencies giving priority to the first station to receive an incoming call.
The UV-82RT supports CTCSS, DCS, and DTMF calling methods. Tone calling (private line) is required by most repeater applications and the UV-82HP supports the latest standards.
The UV-82RT can send DTMF tones. This allows for sending ANI (Caller ID) or remote commands that require DTMF tones.
The UV-82RT is able to Transmit on Narrowband (12.5kHz) and Wideband (25kHz).
BFTECH UV-82 Series Radio
The UV-82 series is BaoFeng’s most commercialized radio series. Compared to the UV-5R and other previous series; the UV-82 radios come with a much louder speaker (1 watt), while other current BaoFeng radios use a 700mW speaker.
The UV-82 series radios also have a more solid case that employ larger buttons as well compared to the previous BaoFeng series. The UV-82RT uses the latest BaoFeng chipset and PCB board that outperforms the range, accuracy, and output of the previous BaoFeng chipsets.
It is not simply a remake but a new radio from the ground up.
