There are just three days left until the U.S. sales ban on multi-band Baofeng UV-5R handie-talkies takes effect. As of October 1st, 2019, it will be illegal to advertise or sell them.
But they will still be legal to operate. Only licensed amateur can operate on their ham bands. However, unlicensed folks can operate with them on their FRS, and MURS bands.
Everyone should have access to portable two-way communication should things go awry in this country. Personally, I believe the closer the 2020 election comes, more false flags and outright anarchy from the left will ensue.
The closer you are to liberal-run cities the more dangerous things will become. The Baofeng UV-5R is a remarkably inexpensive radio ($23.00) imported from China that will keep you in touch with others should the need arise.
Learn about them -- CLICK HERE -- and order before its too late!
There's a reason the US is BANNING these radios; government doesn't want you to HAVE THEM! They don't want people to be able to communicate when all "normal" systems (landline, cellular, Internet) are taken down!!!!
The link above explains all about these radios. You can also use them as a scanner for local cops as long as they are not using trunking technology.
DISCLOSURE: I am NOT the Seller at the link above, but if anyone actually buys these radios, I will earn a small sales commission of about a buck.
