Baofeng UV82-C Getting Started Video

Here’s a short video on getting started with the Baofeng UV-82C radio for use in the NRG Firewise community. It covers basic usage of the radio and provides a summary of the channel programming. You can find the video on YouTube, here:

Also, remember that we have a monthly radio “net” (test), where we call for checkins for people and have a brief chat. This happens on the third Saturday of the month, from 9:00-9:30am. This will allow you to practice using the radios and see how far they transmit.

If you have any questions about the UV82-C radio, feel free to post them to this forum and I’ll answer here, for the benefit of all.

Wow! This video really helped me get comfortable with my BaoFeng MURS radio. I’ve been using my Dakota Alert because it’s easier, but I LOVE the channels you and Keith have programmed in each radio for our NRG Firewise community. Every time I hear a siren, I scan the channels and get to hear real-time conversations with Central Fire, CalFire, sheriff, and others. I’ll use the BaoFeng now that you demonstrated how to use it! I’m not a techy and really needed this! Thank you Eric and Tamah!
