    I like the UV-6R more
    Only there is no larger battery and this 1800mAh I don't know how long it will last.

    and take a look at the Baofeng GT-3TP (not to be confused with UV3R). It is in a much cooler housing, has a power of up to 8W, it is possible to install a huge 3800mAh battery. The only thing to replace is the antenna - the original is quite poor. The Nagoya NR771 works EXCELLENTly.
    I had some equipment from China - generally Wouxuny are nice. The coolest, however, was Zastone ZT2R - because it was really Yaesu VX2 - and it was not burdened with typical inconveniences of Chinese equipment based on the SDR receiver.

    More 8W power means faster power consumption and no noticeable increase in range to 5W.
    771 they went crazy with these anenes ? buy only the original fake acts as the original cat's tail.
    Woxuma's fact as a colleague says nicely done.

    Well this radio looks great only if this price is worth just to have 8W.

    You just answered a question about a topic. ;-) Take uvr5 and it will be ok.

    Sorki, I didn't know that 36PLN plays a role here

    GT3TP around 140 PLN with delivery

    UV5R around PLN 104 with delivery - not much more from local distribution.

    To this day, I use Chinese nagoye 771 - and I do not know where my colleague cristal2242 concludes that they are bad ... I tested dozens of different antennas and somehow I did not notice that Nagoya 771 from China had worse parameters ... Maybe colleague cristal2242 give some examples / tests?

    I had both Bidafungi (and dozens of other trxes). I had GT3 in all versions from GT1 to GT3. I would never exchange for UV5R though the same radio inside. Housing, however, is a different level.
    Interesting facts - after sparring RX on militia bands between GT3TP and Yaesu FT8800 (12 times more expensive) - I sold the latter :)

    I chose to buy GT-3TP
    only now the question is whether with 1800mAh or 3800mAh

    and it depends what you are going to do with this radio. From what I remember, the receiver walked a few afternoons (about 5) on scanning on a 1800mA battery - you can choose between transmitting 1, 4 or 8W. The battery has 13Wh - assuming that the radio needs 2x more power than it emits, it gives you about 6h of continuous talk with 1W, over 1.5h with 4W and below 1h with 8W. Surprisingly, these 8W sometimes saved me in mountainous terrain to reach the inverter. Communication was illegible with 4W.

    ps it is worth buying the version with the programming cable or do it yourself because some functions (as in most Chinese) can be set only with the help of PC (names of memory cells, SKIP function, or e.g. the inscription on the display when starting the radio.

    So I'm taking 3800mAh

    Added after 11 [hours] 40 [minutes]:

    I bought
    Baofeng GT-3TP with a 3800 mAh battery
    + Antene nagoye 771
    + PC cable with board
    I already had a pear
    So this set will be cool.
    Thank you all for your help and advice because it is thanks to your entries that I made such a choice, so thanks again.
