Baofeng UV-82X HT links
« on: June 25, 2014, 07:53:22 PM »
If you are one of those that saw Nel's posting on the remailer about the Baofeng UV-82X radio,
here are some things you might find useful.    The UV-82X is a 144/220 MHz dual band HT.

ORC 220 repeater:  224.180 MHz (- 1.6 MHz offset)  PL 127.3 Hz

Just received mine today.  Set it up on 220 but was not sure on the negative offset. As Tom posted, it's 1.6 MHz! Thank you to Jerry for replying on 97. Had trouble believing it was that large. Anyway, I was able to pull the machine up.

I spent hours programming my Baofeng HT using the recommended software (from R/T Systems) and, about halfway through, clicked on a wrong icon and lost everything I did!

I'll try again after Field Day.

I really want to thank Tom for providing the links.  I don't have a programing cable yet, so at this point I found the first miklor.com link he posted to be the most helpful.  It provides the main stuff we'd be looking for in a manual...unlike the one which comes with the radio.

Had a QSO with N9LAD and K9QLP this morning on 220 Mhz and received good reports.

Gary,
   I'm glad the links were helpful to you, and hopefully others.
I have to say that this radio is somewhat hard to program even with the links.
I did buy the programming cable and used Chirp to add channels.   One thing to
remember is which part of the PTT to push to transmit on which band.   I'm almost
tempted to put the 220 on both bands at once, so I don't make a mistake.   ;D

Had great success with the CHIRP software.  Turned out the cable I have for my Kenwood TH-G71 also works with the UV-82X.  Went on to program all the 220 machines between here and my cabin along with a few simplex frequencies.  Then programed several VHF machines, simplex frequencies and all the NOAA weather channels.  The upload to the UV-82X was flawless.

The caveat I came across though, was when I turned on the Baofeng it remained in the "Frequency" mode and I couldn't figure out how to see the "Memory" channels I just programed.  There was nothing in the menu which allowed me to switch.  So, I started to depress buttons while turning the power on and had success.  With that being said, the following is what needs to be done to toggle from the "Frequency" mode to "Channel/Memory" mode and back:  "TURN OFF THE UV-82X, HOLD THE MENU BUTTON DOWN WHILE TURNING THE RADIO BACK ON." Everything you programed should be there.  If you want to revert back, just repeat the process.

The second caveat I came across was with the software where you're able to open up files like the "Repeater Book" predefined channels and wanting to dump them into the radio.  (At this point you should have already created a new file to program the channels.)  This is what needs to be done:  "OPEN THE FILE FROM THE REPEATER BOOK, e.g., OZAUKEE COUNTY REPEATERS, AND GOTO FILE, CHOOSE EXPORT, AND SAVE SOMEWHERE AS A .CSV FILE.  NOW GO TO THE NEW FILE YOU CREATED TO PROGRAM THE RADIO, AND IMPORT THE CSV FILE INTO THAT."  It should it work.  At this point you are able to insert blank lines above and below entries and you are also able to move entries up and down within your list.

Please find the attachment of the what I created for my radio.  You should be able to import it into yours!

Hope you find this of help.

Chirp has come up with a modification to adjust the squelch on the UV-5R and UV-82 HTs.
