Found: UV-5R Plus and Nagoya NA-771

Post by KI5JRA »

I had a friend come up to me during lunch today and hand me a UV-5R Plus with a Nagoya NA-771 Antenna, saying he had found it in a box on the side of the road today. It is fully programmed for FRS, GMRS, and a ton of local frequencies, as well as repeaters from southern to central Missouri. There are no markings on this radio, No damage, No callsign bootscreen. I wanted to come to BVRC and BCRO to make sure no one locally has lost this radio. If this is yours, or you know who's it is, please email me a mayer.brigan@gmail.com or text me at (479) 407-1996 for more info on the radio. Thanks!

WOW! This brings a new meaning to the term "disposable radio". :lol:
Surely someone is missing their HT?

Good to hear from you!

I had downloaded the program file off the radio, and it doesn't seem to have ANY markings on who's it is. No callsigns, No Contact Info, Nothing. I will give it a week to see if there's someone looking for it, and if there isn't, I may donate it to a club, or use it as a way to get friends into Ham.
