The Baofeng UV-5R is a hugely popular handheld radio covering both the 144 and 432 MHz bands and is usually available for a very low price.
It is also well known for not being the cleanest of radios transmit wise with many spurs which aren't that far below the fundamental signal which can be a potential source of interference to other services.
On the 24th of November 2021, the German authorities announced a ban on sale of this radio.
Will a EU wide ban follow??
