BaoFeng / PoFung GT-3 Mark II

The BaoFeng GT3 Mk2

The BaoFeng GT3 Mk2

This is my review of the BaoFeng GT-3 Mk2 a handheld (HT) capable of TXing on 2m and 70cm’s and will also receive Broadcast FM, Air traffic and Maritime VHF.

Many of my readers will be familiar with the BauFeng UV-5 series of radio’s that suffered from a lot of problems with SQL and other issues including a Naff antenna. The GT-3 Mk2 is based on the UV-5 software but has a whole host of new components on the motherboard.

The model I purchased is produced by Sainsonic, and has some different bits in the box.

(This is directly from sainsonic’s website, my review is below it)

Description (What is in the BOX)

SainSonic INF-641 Antenna SainSonic INF-641 Antenna which is flexible, lightweight, fine shape. The most valuable is it enhance the Gt-3’s good ability of transmitting and receiving signals, allow you to get longer range on your handheld radio significantly. While, under such a high-power operation of the radio, the antenna is not as hot as the other models of radios, everything is under a good operating condition.

The Review

Over 48 hours this has been used now, and I can say that the audio is crisp, battery life is good, and the SQL problem is gone! as quoted the antenna doesn’t get hot at all. All in all the radio has received good audio reports even on low power. For the cost of these I would recommend getting one, even if its just a backup radio for /p
