19.08.2014 – Baofeng hardware bug

Danke, Walter:


Vorsicht vor Geräten mit der neuen N5R-20 and N5R-30 Firmware!!!!!

Radios affected:
All UV5R series radios with new N5R-20 and N5R-30 firmware. This includes UV5RA, RB, RC, etc as well as GT-3, BFF8, F8HP, etc

Radios Not affected:
This does not affect the UV82 series

What occurs:
If MENU 8 (Beep) is set to OFF, the receiver is muted.
Setting MENU 8 back to on un-mutes the receiver. This does not affect any other function of the radio. Only the Keypad Beep

Baofeng was made aware of the error and will have it corrected in the next firmware release.
