Baofeng Uv 5Ra Software Free

CHIRP is a free, open-source tool for programming your radio. It supports a large number of manufacturers and models, as well as provides a way to interface with multiple data sources and formats.

Baofeng Uv 5Ra Software Free


The BaoFeng UV-5R can be programmed both by the keys that are on the radio, and by using software. You might for example just program the radio using the keys if you need to enter just a few memories or you are out in the field with no access to programming software or cables. Using the software would be much more beneficial if you needed to program a lot of memories, or needed to have multiple radios with the same memory settings (cloning radios).

I much prefer the software as it allows me to quickly go back in and make changes and then upload those changes to the radio(s) and since there are so many excellent videos on how to change the settings in the radio I will concentrate on using the software.

Of course you will need a computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux) and the best free BaoFeng programming software is CHIRP which can program the BaoFeng UV-5R as well as many other radios. The BaoFeng UV-5R programming software free download can be found on the CHIRP website. There are several warnings when go to use this software with this radio because of the huge number of different firmware versions (and they are not upgradable). Fortunately I have had little problem with using CHIRP and the UV-5R radios.

The next step is to plug in the radio, turn it on (on this radio make sure the volume is turned all the way up or your programming might fail), and launch the CHIRP software. The first time you run CHIRP you might see a pop up box that says that error reporting is enabled, you can just click OK and move on. Before we program the BaoFeng UV-5R we want to see what is already in the programming, click on the menu at the top and select Radio -> Download From Radio as shown here:

Download UV-5R Programmer 12.10.25 from our website for free. The most popular version among UV-5R Programmer users is 12.1. UV-5R Programmer works fine with 32-bit versions of Windows 7/8/10/11. This free software is a product of BaoFeng Tech. UV-5R Programmer lies within System Utilities, more precisely Device Assistants. Our antivirus analysis shows that this download is safe. The program's installer is commonly called RadioEngineV4u.exe or RadioEngine_V5.exe etc.

Hi. In -better-baofeng-uv-5r-instruction-manual/#A_Note_on_CHIRP_Software you suggested not using CHIRP programming software. However, I did not see a suggestion for a better program for programming all the radio memory channels. I presently use CHIRP for multiple radios, but if you know of software that is easier to use, please share that. Thanks. 73 DE W1MJ

A few months ago I purchased a Baofeng UV5RA 2M/70cm HT to give to our 8 year old granddaughter when she gets her tech license. At the time I paid $35 with free shipping. Well, you can now get the same radio for $30 or less with free shipping!

Okay, CHIRP software works on LOTS of Baofeng radio models (and many other radios). Baofeng compatibility includes the various UV-5R models, as well as the BF-F8HP (which I have). The CHIRP website lists all the radios that it will work on (linked below).

First, connect the USB end of the programming cable to your computer. Then plug the other end into the Baofeng radio. After that, turn on the Baofeng and turn up the volume knob nearly all the way (assures good digital communications back-and-forth with the PC running CHIRP software).

Consumer FRS/GMRS two way radios 2 watts or less are now considered FRS radios and are license free. Any models capable of more than 2 watts and those that are capable of operating on GMRS repeater frequencies are considered GMRS radios and require a GMRS license to operate.

Hi,I just recently got the HAM Technician License and had bought Baofeng UV-5R and the cable for program Chirp software. I do not know what is level of difference function I need to set up ,and, especially, how to find and set up a repeater frequency and it offset. I hope to use it for communication of 12 miles. Could some Elder help me?Let say, thank you in advance for a response.

There is a lot of bunk information on this topic. Yes, you can enter frequencies that are out of the factory range using software. No, most of these will not work. It will display the frequency but it will not actually transmit or receive, most of the time.

I don't think it would plausible to do this. Gresecurity has it's own role based mechanism and approach to Linux security that is separate from what you'd get with LSM modules like SELinux. The upshot, though, is that since Gresecurity is largely compatible with SELinux you should be able to mesh these things together if you really wanted to. > Tightening security is also a dual-edged sword; if devices remain locked and under the control of the manufacturer or telco carrier, it will make mainstream consumer devices more difficult to root and use for our own purposes. There are phones on the market that are purposely left open (relatively) by their manufacturers. The key is really to steer people towards those devices. Besides the security situations, Android users can benefit massively from this sort of approach. Many people I know who does not have a 'rooted' phone and the ability to install their own firmwares tends to end up with a unusable device after a couple years, while my phone (and others in similar positions) is faster and better behaved then it was when it was new. > Until then, the only secure "smartphone" is one with a physically separate modem communicating over an auditable wire protocol such as USB.The radio is the probably most important part of the 'smartphone', from a security perspective, unfortunately. If not the most, it's certainly very important. It can intercept and manipulate any of the traffic going in and out of the phone, as well as publishing information about the user and the user's location and such things. It has it's own processor and operating system-like environment. What would be ideal would be to have a 'dumb radio' similar to how most people ended up with 'dumb modems' towards the end of the dial-up internet era. (aka winmodem/linmodem/etc). In this way the hardware is rather minimal and instead of using the processor and firmware built into the radio to manage connections you use the main cpu and use a open source kernel driver to do most of the 'heavy lifting'. Essentially be a 'software defined radio' type setup.Now, of course, this approach has a large number of problems. Besides technical issues with battery life, reliability, and so on and so forth... The government is not going to want to allow people to know what is going on with their phone's radio. Right now government surveillance techniques at important events (riots, protests, public appearances of officials) involve setting up fake/temporary cellular radio towers and then sending commands to phone's and phone's radios to disable power management features and report continuously on the identities and locations of people in the vicinity of the 'event'. They don't want to loosen any potential FCC rules to allow people to control their own devices in a way that could potentially defeat that sort of thing. Luckily 'dumb radios' will probably end up much cheaper then full blown radios over a dedicated usb (or whatever) style connection and the economics of technology has a way of overruling the regulator's concerns.. thank goodness.Now I don't know how realistic 'software radios' for cellular communication actually is, but I am just suggesting that it's the better approach when thinking about things security-wise.

In fact, we just got an email within the past hour from a company that's enabled basically all grsecurity features from on a system processing 50 emails a second through anti-virus and anti-spam at only a 14% performance hit. The kernel they were running had full memory sanitization on free enabled, which caught a use-after-free bug in the upstream netfilter code.I'm leaning towards you being the small fraction, and this just being one big straw man.-Brad SELinux on Android Posted Aug 29, 2014 14:08 UTC (Fri) by yaap (subscriber, #71398) [Link]

The TLA don't care much about the modem IMHO. To intercept the traffic it's much easier to do it on the network side. And if it happens that the network side is from a non-cooperating country and well protected, it's easier to intercept on the host OS (Android for example) than on the proprietary baseband.It is still a good idea to isolate the host OS environment from the baseband using an IOMMU (SMU in the ARM world) or a separate chip. Mostly for robustness: you don't want complex sub-system A to corrupt the environment of complex sub-system B because of a bug. That's the road to debugging hell. And it removes the baseband as an attack vector, which is always nice (even if there are likely easier vectors).The software of the baseband will remain locked. A radio system is extremely complex (have a look at the zillion specs @ --- and for sure a lot of this complexity is historic or could be avoided. But there's still of lot of intrinsic complexity there, because the domain is hard) and very fragile. Airwaves are a shared medium, and the worst jammer is often a buggy or malfunctioning device. You don't want a clueless person degrading possibly several cells capacity just because he boosted his phone transmit power because it's "l33t" and without understanding the impact in term of interference.To avoid that there is a long and complex certification process before a new baseband software version is released in the field. And in many places it is simply illegal to use a device that has not been certified (e.g.: GCF certification is required in Europe). This complex certification is costly but frankly necessary for the system to operate properly. And it does put doing a baseband outside of the reach of people without deep pockets.I like open systems, but based on my experience the best we can get as far as cellular devices go is a fully open host, and an isolated baseband running a validated (and in practice, opaque) firmware blob and controlled by a documented interface.
