SO you went out and bought a Baofeng radio, but what do you do now? Why get one? They function much like a CB, less expensive, and easy to use. It probably won’t replace the CB any time soon, but is a great alternative. One of the key benefits is that a spotter can communicate with the driver directly.
Our Model: BF-F8HP there are cheep ones but like anything in life you get what you paid for.
Remove radio from package and put antenna on. A better antenna will give you slightly better range.
Charge the radio.
Make sure you know the exact model number.
Down load Chirp.
Connect radio to PC or lap top with a proper USB connection.
Download channels from your Club page.

Under Radio File select Upload to radio.
Under settings you can change the name of channels, set a welcome message, and change radio name.
