    Default baofeng now illegal - FCC

    don't know how many of you are following the new FCC rules
    basically FCC is saying illegal to import, sell or use any hand held that can xmt outside the ham bands
    which are Baofeng's and most of the other chinese radios.

    I am treating this just like I would treat a ban on firearms, in other words ignoring it.

    but if your plans include adding radios to your preps you might consider making that purchase now while they are still available.
    I just picked up a 10 pack of baofeng for under $200 - they are going straight into the faraday cage as I have several for my non shtf world.

    here's a primer

    Explo where did you get the 10 pack from? I've been planning on getting some Baofeng's. Sounds like now is the time.

    Iím glad I got mine many years ago. Mine is mostly used to monitor a storm chaser channel in my area. Wish I could grab a couple more for spares but finances wonít allow that right now.

    A bank charger to go with those would be nice.

    I have 2 of them.

    I also bought 4 bank chargers for mine. 2 of those are solar chargers which work exceptionally well.
