I have dealt with this warrenty company before. They are awesome to work with. I left a wrong rating on this site by accident. I apologize sincerely. They are a great warrenty company. Again I apology for my mistake. The incorrect one has been removed.

Top Critical Review

FRAUD, FRAUD, FRAUD! I purchased a high quality portable radio from Amazon, and also bought the 3 year extended warranty. The radio is back ordered for a MONTH, yet the warranty starts the day of purchase! I talked to the Asurion representative, and was told “that’s our policy”. So I’m paying for 36 months of warranty, but receiving lass than 35 months. This is fraud, and I’m reporting it to rhe Attorney General.

Customer Questions & Answers

I can’t program this with chirp but i can program my baofeng uv-5rs ?
Answer: This appears to be the same radio as the Baofeng UV-5RTP (tri-power), so you may be able to program it using Chirp with the Baofeng BF-F8HP profile. That profile works on the other 8W hi-power/tri-power Baofeng models I know of, with the exception of the UV-82 Hi Power versions.

Is this radio uv-5r pro 8-watt dual band two way radio waterproof?
Answer: These units are water resistant. The uv9 models are waterproof.

Am i missing something??? the advertising seems to skirt that an amateur radio license is required by the fcc to operate on these frequencies & power.
Answer:

Legally you can listen all you want. Transmitting is illegal without a license especially on Ham frequency. But if you stick to low power FRS you??ll be fine. Just do your due diligence and learn how to operate the radio as to know how to not cause interference. Basically, don??t be a dick and you should be fine. I??m try??
