I need suport for this model.
I can't change UHF/VHF over the band A and B.
I have got a baofeng UV-8D without possibility to change UHF or VHF over the A or B band.
I was trying with a factory software.
I think this possibility is disabled in the software. A and B band are set on same band ( UHF).
This radio is similar with Baofeng UV-82
Best regards from Serbia.

According to my quick google search, the UV-8D is a UHF only radio. Which factory software are you using?

Is there any progress on this.
the radio is advertised as dual band and 5W yet the rating sticker behind the battery shows it as 8w UHF

either way im willing to lend any dev a radio if they can do something with it as its just a paperweight to me at the moment

Sorry, this radio is still unsupported.
I've checked the Equipment Loan Offered flag for you.
