The TYT TH-UV-8200 is a very robust VHF / UHF handheld radio constructed to IP67. With IP67 the device is constructed to withstand a drop in a puddle, making this an idea radio to take outdoors and not worry about the elements or Mother Nature.
As a dual band amateur handheld radio it covers the frequency range of 144-148MHz and 430-450MHz TX / RX
When powered via the lithium ion battery, the radio achieves a RF transmit power of approx. 8 watts (VHF) or 5 watts at low power. When operated via the optional battery eliminator, up to 10 watts in the VHF band can be achieved.
The device offers exceptional construction, which you can tell immediately when you hold it in your hand. The battery lock is secured against accidental opening, the stable belt clip (spring-loaded) sits directly on the metal die-cast chassis, and the IP67 rating makes this an excellent choice for outdoor adventures.
The “Japanese style” SMA standard connection is used as the antenna socket, which means that a large selection of antennas can be added on. Two antennas are already supplied, a standard 16cm rubber duck style antenna, and a flexible, 40cm, high gain antenna. Perfect for use during simplex scenarios like public service events.
The modulation is loud and powerful, the RX on the device also sounds very good thanks to the 1W of audio power.
Despite the wide range of functions, operation is relatively easy and almost intuitive to learn due to the large LCD providing ample information about the settings and the variable adjustments. The brightly illuminated display (dimmable) is very easy to read and also fairs well outdoors. To save battery power the display does have an adjustable auto off setting.
Being an amateur radio you have full control over CTCSS tones, repeater offsets, and saving to memory channels. Compatible with Amateur Ham Radio repeaters and Simplex operations. With the popular “K” plug accessory jack an extremely wide range of accessories exist for the radio including Speaker Microphones, Earbuds, and USB Windows Programming Cables.
For the price, this radio is tough to beat. Up to 10W of RF power, constructed to IP67 waterproof, and the large LCD screen make this our new favourite radio. The 40CM high gain antenna ices the cake.
