Product Description
Wide Frequency Coverage
The UV-5001 provides extended receiver coverage of 136-174Mhz and 400-520Mhz (beyond the Amateur bands), so you can keep informed of communication activities in the public safety, commercial, and government communications ranges. TX/RX on Narrowband (12.5kHz) or Wideband (25kHz).


Dual Watch Receiver
The UV-5001 operates as two radios in one, with either 144 MHz or 430 MHz as the "Main" TX/RX band, while simultaneously watching the other band. And, if you like, you can configure your UV-5001 for VHF-VHF or UHF-UHF operation, too!


Simultaneous Display
For those that want to have the most information at their fingertips on a specific channel - they can synchronize the displays. You can configure the displays to synchronize and allow both the Channel Name and frequency to simultaneously display on the selected channel.


High Power Output
To get your message through when it counts, the UV-5001 puts out 50 Watts of power on the VHF band, and 45 Watts on UHF.


Fully Customizable through the Free Software
You can program your UV-5001 exactly how you want it. There are 200 programmable memory channels. You can add or remove channels from scanning list. You can give channels alphanumeric names. The radio has an available low power setting of 10 watts, allowing you to choose how far you can communicate. You can easily program from a PC to set-up the radio to operate exactly as needed. (The PC04 FTDI Cable is recommended for easy programming)


Programming Lock-Out
Though the available computer software, you can lock out access to menus, manual programming, and frequency mode - to prevent any unwanted changes to your preferred programming layout.
