Disassembly of Baofeng UV-5R

I was able to see if I could control the frequency of the UV-5R.
How? Open the Cover and look!




if you want to completely disassembled the UV-5R, you will have to find the hidden screw under the LCD.




The MCU ( MB95F013K) shown in the picture below is the main controller of the transceiver.



and The RF Controller (Left chip marked - 1846 - RDA1846) shwon in the picture covers VHF and UHF.

VHF :  134~174MHz, 200~260MHz (but, only 134~174 VHF present on UV-5R)
UHF : 400~520MHz




RDA1846 has as 24Mhz oscillator connected,


if you replaced other frequency osclillator, perhap the frequency ramge pf use of the radio will change.

Components such as filters due to frequency changes will have to change together.

How to upgrade uBITX Firmware

uBITX is based on Arduino Nano. So uBITX's firmware upgrade method is the same as Arduino.
There are two ways to upgrade the firmware of uBITX.

The first is to compile the source from the Arduino IDE, and the second is to upload the compiled hex file using the Firmware Upgrade Tool.

I'll show you how to upload a compiled hex file as a second method.

1.Connect the uBITX's USB cable to the computer.


2.Run Device Manager on your computer.
  The way to open the Device Manager for each OS Version differs slightly.
  In most Windows, you can easily launch the Device Manager by running.

  On your computer, press the Windows key + R.



 Type devmgmt.msc and press OK Button.




On most operating systems, there will be a serial port named Ports with CH340. If so, the next step is skipped.

If the serial port is not installed as below, you need to install the driver.



Included in uBITX is the Adonano, which uses the CH340 USB To UART part.

Download the latest CH340 driver from the Internet.
