Here is a reminder on an*upcoming rule change by the FCC:* On*September 30, 2019, it will become illegal to sell or “offer for sale” (advertise) radios like the popular Baofeng UV-5R that can operate in the FRS radio band (462.5625 – 462.7250 MHz) and any other licensed band in a single device.

Part of a periodic update of the rules as required by law. Pretty much all of Part 95 was reviewed. Many of the changes were a direct result of the comments received from users, industry, public safety and other stake holders during the open comment period. Some request were approved others weren't. Take CB for example. The distance limit was removed as requested. A power limit increase was not.

Some of the changes were long overdue as a result of improvements in technology. Some as result of changing usage patterns. Some to clear up loopholes that equipment makers were exploiting.

I just bought another UV-5R on e-bay for $19.97 with free shipping. As long as I can get batteries I'll be OK.

More concerned about having my 2nd Amendment rights suspended after I got my medical marijuana card.
