THE BF-F8+ WAS THE FIRST UV-5R RADIO TO GET A FULL INTERNAL UPGRADE.
As the first radio featuring the second generation UV-5R chipset (used in the GT-3 Mark ii and others).
The BF-F8+ uses the same updated internal components as the GT-3 Mark ii, but also has full backward compatibility with the UV-5R batteries and accessories
Radio Frequency IC:
- Upgraded SQ to enhance the anti-interference ability
- RDA1846S adds an new tail tone elimination function, when transmitting and receiving signal between 50Hz with 55Hz
- Improves the receiver AGV switching noise when signal strength changes severe
Frequency-Modulated Receiver Chip:
- The RDA5802N has a powerful low-IF digital audio processor, which makes it have the most optimum sound quality with varying reception conditions
Power Amplifier IC :
- Low crossover distortion
- Low quiescent circuit current
The second generation BaoFeng UV-5Rs have an inverted privacy display instead of the tri-color display
VERSATILE RADIO FOR AMATEUR USEThe BaoFeng BF-F8+ is legal for use on amateur frequencies. The BF-F8+ is able to Transmit on Narrowband (12.5kHz) and Wideband (25kHz).
Dual Watch ReceiverThe BaoFeng BF-F8+ has one built-in receiver but can “watch” two channels (semi duplex). Monitor two different frequencies (even on different bands (VHF/UHF)) and the radio will monitor both frequencies giving priority to the first station to receive an incoming call.
FM Broadcast StationYou can listen to the FM Broadcast radio, while still monitoring your radio frequencies in the background. Any incoming call will be given priority insuring you never miss an important call while listening to the radio.
Group Tones supportedThe BaoFeng BF-F8+ supports the most common Analog Tones. It supports CTCSS, DCS, and DTMF calling methods. Set-up your calling methods to call by group tones. Tone calling (private line) is required by most repeater applications and the BF-F8+ supports the latest standards
The BaoFeng BF-F8+ can even send DTMF tones. This allows for sending ANI (Caller ID) or remote commands that require DTMF tones
Internal VOX functionThe BaoFeng BF-F8+ has an internal VOX (Voice Operated Transmit) function for convenient hands-free operation and can be used in conjunction with the included earpiece and mic. The VOX level and VOX delay time are adjustable your needs.
Customize Your Operation with channels, Programmable Buttons, and more!You can program your BaoFeng BF-F8+ exactly how you want it. There are 128 programmable memory channels. You can add or remove channels from scanning list using the free computer software. You can give channels alphanumeric names, using a computer. The radio has 2 power levels (5 watt maximum), allowing you to choose how far you can communicate. You can set VFO limits using the CHIRP software. You can easily program from a PC to set-up the radio to operate exactly as needed.
