BAOFENG UV5R received

Ordered 30April  received 11/5 yesterday  morning form Hongkong A Package with 2 boxes  containing  the UV5R  Handheld UHF/VHF  transceiver. All was correct there was a green custom sticker marked with "Toys" I was lucky not charged by the customs. The UV5R + extra battery + leather case +magnet car antenna+ programming cable+ SMA-BNC    complete + shipping  it was just below 100€ But not much time to play with it since Friday afternoon was preparing for the Rondje Fluessen Catamaran race. Cool heavy wind  to 6BF. waves  cold water. But we survived. No damage finished place 12 of 20 cats We did not sail the 2nd leg because of too low temperature.     mean time  I let WSPR running  at 70.091MHz   160/80/10m the WSPR DX index for 28MHz was zero  not a single DX report but VK7AB did report  some DL's 300km south of me. the low band also  zero DX for me.
