    On Amazon. They'll do it directly but want $20 for shipping. I may just go with the f8hp via Amazon since I have a prime membership.

    @ffirg Mine went through just fine... no $20 fee.

    https://baofengtech.com/uv-82hp#!/

    I just scrolled down on the bottom left and add to cart, then when shipping came up I just selected the free one. :notsure:

    Just ordered it from that link. No shipping :thumbsup:. Although it doesn't give me a shipping method at all. Hopefully it doesn't take two months lol.

    Well they should be shipping from South Dakota, not China. Or so we hope...

    My professor today was giving me crap for buying a Chinese radio :luvya:

    Reviews seem pretty positive, and I already tried the APRS tracking on APRSdroid, so far I'm optimistic.

    Got my radio! So stoked.

    I'll have to order up my K2 cable to connect it and my old phone I'll use for APRSdroid.

    @ffirg let me know when you get yours so we can see if they work!

    Obligatory pics

    I got mine today as well. I have no idea what I'm doing haha. I've tried monitoring some repeaters but haven't heard a peep. Weather frequencies work though.
