Baofeng UV-3R notes
The original cute little UV-3R the version with a one-line display was infamous for its unreasonably high 2nd harmonic on VHF, but there is some confusion as to whether the problem persists in the Mark-II. Apparently not, at least not in my radio, at least not on the ham bands. So popular is this radio, that it is not uncommon to hear its "Alarm" sound on the local repeaters, accidentally triggered by pressing and holding the button right next to the PTT. Yes, I repeat, the radio transmits its alarm sound if you press and hold the wrong button, and there's no standard way of disabling it! But I have disabled it on mine by this modification.
