One of its main advantages is the splash protection that could be useful for those working in an extreme terrain. And built-in flashlight of this model helps a lot, as well.
- The uv-82 model has an exceptionally balanced case construction which makes it very comfortable to hold onto even with longer antennas.
- Includes PTT button that allows receiving and switching between two different channels.
- The UHF range is slightly wider than that of uv-5r model – 400-520 Mhz, VHF range is the same – 136-174 Mhz (VHF).
Both of these models are easily updated using firmware files. Both have slots for headset, programming cable, car charger and other accessories that can be easily added to the standard set.
