For our newbies looking for a cheap way to get on the air, and use the FLARC club repeater, I just became aware that Baofeng has a 10% discount code that is still in effect (I just used it!!)
For example, the latest UV-82 V2+ 1w / 4w / 7w dual band (2 meters and 440MHz) HT is listed on their website for $59.99, but when going to their Amazon store page it is now $44.49 BEFORE the 10% discount code; after the code it is a mere $40.04. And if you have PRIME membership, there is FREE NEXT DAY shipping! Totally amazing!
The page for the UV-82 is at
The discount code is BFNGNEWS
Now there is almost NO reason for any member to not be on the FLARC 2 meter repeater …
(hey, I get no rebate or discount or anything for posting this … just can’t let it go unmentioned.)
