Bought a Baefong Tech UV-25x4 tri-band radio

Aug 2, 11:17 AM

Update: April 30, 2019

It looks like the microphone cablec and the connector for the coax has to be unplugged and wiped clean every few months, in order for a signal to go out. Its in the house and is not subject to corrosion, dampness, etc.

end update.

I found two mistakes in their manual and their pdf, same mistakes, and the pdf and manual are the same info.

on page 33 is supposed to be the method of programming a channel offset with ctcss tone.

Here is the correct method.

M = menu button.

M 45(menu selection) M delete the channel you are about to configure. M Exit

M 13 M Tone frequency M Exit

type in receive frequency.

M 44 M channel number ( this assigns the receive frequency to the same channel) M Exit

M 46 M offset, no, +, or – M Exit

M 47 M amount of offsett. M Exit

type in the Transmitt frequency, should be the same as the Recieve frequency. The manual says otherwise, ignore it.

M 44 M channel number ( this assigns the transmit frequency to the same channel) M Exit

I contected Baefong Tech USA and asked which power supply to get for this radio. They suggested Pyramid PS9KX as it has a cigarette type jack. The radio comes with a connector for this type of electrical jack.

My HF power supply has a 4-prong outlet, and this radio has a 2-prong outlet.

I realize I could have simply cut the wires, but I wanted separate power supplies for HF and my tri-bander.

Update: I found info online that says operating this radio at 25 watts, its maximum, can lead to overheating. So I use 10 watts.
