    Baofeng handheld radio/scanner on woot today only 3/5/18

    Anybody looking for a cheap radio, woot.com has 2-packs of the Baofeng UV-5RTP for $55 today only, 3/5/18. I think these are the ones that Ryan can program the CMRA frequencies into.

    They are $20-25 each on amazon and you can usually get them next day. The closer you can stay to the model UV-5R the easier it is for me to program.

    The Baofeng site says the UV-5R is discontinued but I bet there's still plenty out there. And apparently any -5 in this list is the same other than cosmetic differences:
    UV-5R5
    UV-5Rv2+
    UV-5RA
    UV-5RE
    UV-5R+ (Plus)

    if this link does not work just search amazon for “Baofeng UV-5R” any variant of that radio should work fine.
