Baofeng UV5R Variants

The Baofeng UV-5R is the basis for many other models. Any vendor that purchases a large quantity of radios can have a private label (and in some cases, firmware version) applied to the radio. There is, in most cases, almost no actual difference between the variants, which is very confusing for customers.

Except for the F-11, all of these variants use "UV-5R" as the Model selection in CHIRP.

  • BF-F8/BF-F8+
  • BF-F9
