BaofengTech UV2501+220 – Another Cheap Failure?
Recently BaofengTech released a new tri-band radio, the UV2501+220, which is a VHF/UHF mobile also covering the 222MHz band. The radio sounded great upon first glance considering it’s small size, 25 watt output (20 on UHF), and low price point however Reddit user EM79rd found out the bad about this radio when running it on his spectrum analyzer. The results are, well, horrible. Here’s a link to his post on Reddit including the analyzer output.
