If you have been watching my videos, then you know about the 2 separate episodes I did for the Juentai JT-6188. I did both an unboxing video and a programming video. After seeing the first video, I was contacted by Juentai and asked to do a video of their new HT radio, the JT-UV007.
This HT radio is a very heavy-duty feeling handheld. Like so many other dual band HTs coming out of China, it doesn’t really have anything special to it, though. It seems to work well, and like I said, it is very durable. But it is the same 2M/440 HT with 128 channels. It does have a larger battery than the BaoFeng UV-5R, and a much better antenna. The display and the menu of the Juentai is nearly the same as the Baofeng, so programming and menus won’t be a huge surprise. At the time of this video, the JT-UV007 is around $70 on Amazon. If you want a better radio than the UV5R with a larger battery, this is probably a good choice.
