    excellent buy for the price. Had no problem programing it with the UV-5R cable with Chirp set on BF-58 radio. Problem with the CHIRP is that this radio BF-5PLUS is not listed yet and the BF-58 software will not allow me to program in the 220Mhz frequencies but okay on manual programing. As before on the reviews push and hold the top left pad on the keypad and switch on the on switch to switch between VFO or Memory settings. On the VFO you program the channel manually and store to memory.

    Delivery time was four weeks, the radio looks neat. Unfortunately the output power is not 18 Watt but maximum around 5 Watt on all frequencies at the highest setting in the menu. So there is not much difference from the outside with the comparable other radios.

    Arrived on time and works very well. Covers 136/174 200/259 400/520 which was a surprise as the ad did not specify that it was a TRI band radio. Programmed with Chirp using the uv-5r cable and the uv-9r settings. Job done.

    Beware: the user manual provided is only in Chinese, and the model BF-S5plus is totally unknown so far in the market. I spent a considerable amount of time in order to find the essential function: how to toggle between channel mode and frequency mode because there is no button for that purpose. Spoiler: finally I found in a comment posted by an Amazon customer, for another model from Baofeng: Switch off. Switch on while keeping MENU pressed. Please provide an English manual on-line.

    Details of this radio (BF-S5plus) are non-existent. I found this model (A58S) which is identical as far as I can tell. Details on this webpage. The manual that can be downloaded at the bottom of the page is word for word (except for the cover page) identical to the one that is supplied with the S5plus radio. The A58S is also mentioned in the CHIRP program compatibility table. Another manual I found grouped the following Models together, BF-A58

    These radios do not put out 18 watts of RF, they are only 5 watts on high power and just 1 watt on low power. If you have a windows 10 pc you will have a very difficult time trying to program the radio with chirp. Build quality is fine and they are well packed. Mine came with the US type power brick 10 volts at 500 mA output., the lanyard, 2 antennas, battery and belt clip plus users manual.
