I just got the Baofeng UV-5R in the mail yesterday.  What a great radio for the price.  I have the Arrow Antenna II.  I listened using it with my scanner yesterday during a high pass of SO-50 and heard a dozen QSOs.  I have all the frequencies programed in the Baofeng now and will be working the birds as soon as there is a decent pass.

I am going to try and work them today but we have bad WX here.  Raining, Wind and a Tornado Watch.

I will try and post some audio,
