    I have read threads on two other forums saying that the FCC was banning Baofeng radios. Has anyone heard any confirmation of this?

    But are they still legal to use? I have 2 of the UV-5R's.

    Actually, no, not to broadcast without a license. The transmitter is too powerful for FRS and everything else it does requires a license.
