Ham radio for my boat

Recommended Posts

I have a boafang uv 5rv2+ a small hand held ham radio. I am wondering how to program a boating frequency to it. I believe it's channel 16 but this radio needs to be programmed with 000.000 not just 16. I know I probably should just get a marine one but I want a portable ham for home hiking and boating.

Buy the programming cable and get the chirp software. It's super easy to program that way. Just have to make sure you get the right cable, there's lots of knock odds that don't work very well.
