The Baofeng UV-5RC is a compact F.C.C. Part 90 hand held transceiver providing 4 watts in the frequency range of 136-174 MHz and 400-480 MHz.

This radio comes with SMA-J flexible antenna, Li-ion battery (7.4V 1800 mAh), belt clip, wrist strap, AC adapter (8.4V 600ma) and drop-in charging tray. The UV-5RC is similar to the UV-5R, but has a more rounded chassis, different keys, different firmware, requires different programming software and does not accept the BL5L battery.

This radio requires purchase of the USB-02 programming cable and downloading of software prior to use. These radios are certified under FCC part 90 and operate differently from traditional amateur equipment. FCC Part 90 radios do not operate natively in the VFO mode and are not as frequency agile and are best suited when frequencies are programmed into memory and operated in a channelized mode. May not be suitable as a "first radio".

The UV-5RC is a CE and FCC certified business radio that requires a commercial license to operate.
