Explanation of Radio Menu Options



This may be of help to folks new to 2-way radios...

Randy from youtube channel NotaRubicon created a video which explains all of the menu options for a Baofeng UV-5R radio.  Most likely other Baofeng radios share most/all of these settings.  Other, including non-Baofeng, radios utilize similar menu options, though their names may be different.  The link to the video is further below.

If nothing else, newbies may appreciate a video in which the options are stepped through visually/verbally rather than reading about them.  Not to mention that Chinese radio manuals don't necessarily do a good job of explaining things.

Note: In the video, Randy made a mistake.  He said he personally likes to set option #23 BCL to on.  He meant to say off.  He explained this in the text when you expand the video's title.

Note that Randy likes to needle "sad hams" (e.g., contentious hams who leave snarky comments).  As such, his mention of turning the roger beep option to on was said tongue in cheek.
